Has your power chair been stored or not used in a while? Have you been charging the batteries regularly? Is the charger plugged in to a working electrical outlet, turned on and plugged into the power chair properly?
If the batteries have not been maintained properly, they may have become damaged that will prevent them from getting a full charge. It can happen quickly, even in as little as 1 month of storage.
When you operate the power chair is there any noise or vibration that could indicate a mechanical problem?
If you continue to have a problem, contact your dealer or manufacturer. If your insurance paid for the power chair, they may pay for repairs. Warranty may not cover repairs caused by customer neglect.
Good luck!

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour

I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

Old story??

I think you had better have a local shop inspect this for a failed engine connecting rod.

It doesn't charge properly & also running on battery & Ac ,waht is the problem & how can I fix it?

First and foremost it sounds like a bad battery. Its very common to see laptop batteries go bad since they arent designed to last long. One easy way to test the battery is to simply unplug the AC adapter and see how long it takes to die. If it is saying 2:15 remaining, and 15 minutes later it says 1:45 remaining etc you know the battery is old and should be replaced.
Also, batteries arent supposed to be charged all the time, and leaving a laptop plugged in all the time will kill cell/camera, etc batteries.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.

Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

My laptop frequently going out of power for every 15 minutes it requires booting

By going out of power, do you mean the battery dies? Or is it shutting down even when it's plugged in?

Special equipment is necessary to check the battery of a laptop computer. The equipment will test the charging ability as well as the performance of the battery under the standard "load" of operating the computer. If yours is no longer holding a charge, or the charge lasts only a short period, it's very likely that the battery is simply worn out. Typically expect that if a battery is more than 2 years old, you'll be running out of life for it. Some batteries last longer, some much shorter. For example, Toshiba's Tecra series batteries seem to wear out and drain their charge quickly after about 6-12 months, needing a new battery.

If the battery is less than a year old, the manufacturers warranty may stipulate free replacement.

You may find a local computer repair shop that will test your battery for free since it's very simple for them to do.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Check that connections are clean and check battery voltage with a meter...If battery has less than 12v in it, likely you have a bad alternator.
