SOURCE: All six lights blink on my Jet 3
I just had the same problem with my uncle's power chair. The number of "blinks" indicates a problem code to the technicians. My chair needed the joystick control assembly replaced. Once replaced, evrything was back to normal. 'Not a cheap fix but much needed. Good luck my friend!!

There's a lever on the side of the chair that you disengage to unlock it. First, make sure the chair is in gear and power is off, then unplug the Joystick from the base; just follow the cable coming out of the joystick to the rear of the chair where it plugs in and rock it back and forth to unplug.
Unlock the seat with the lever, and turn the seat slightly to the left or right and lift up. Usually, it will come right off. If it's been a while since it's been removed, or if a heavier person has been bouncing atop it, it may need more coaxing. Try squirting some WD-40 at the base of the seat where the pole connects and let it run down into the shaft of the pole. Wiggle seat back and forth a bit and try lifting at the same time.
Now you can access the batteries by lifting up on the corners of the cover called the shroud. These are held on by Velcro strips so just pull up and they will give way. You will see the two batteries inside. Replace them with sealed, gel-acid deep-cycle batteried, about 32-34 amp-hour rating. Fully charge for two or three hours before using. On first uses, let the batteries discharge almost to the red zone before charging overnight. After a week, they will be well broken in. Good luck.

I am assuming you have a Jet 7 with a VSI controller (manufactured by Penny and Giles) with a steady flash of all the speed and profile LEDs (lights). This is a no drive away feature of the VSI if the charger is plugged in. The older Penny and Giles controllers indicate the same flash code.
If you have an on- board charger check to see if it is plugged into the wall. If it is, unplug it and see if the chair runs. Sometimes, you have to remove the back cover and unplug the charger haress at the output of the charger inside the electronics housing (much more difficult). A failed on-board charger can inhibit the VSI controller (no drive away) even if it unplugged from the wall outlet. There is also a charger inhibit harness with a fuse that might have failed. A qualified technician can jumper this harness to bypass and test.
If you have an off-board charger unplug it from the wall or unplug it from the charging port in the front of the VSI. If the chair runs in either case you have a bad charger.
You may also have a bad VSI controller which can be rebuilt or replaced. Start with the basic charger unplug tests and then work your way to the VSI controller. Hope this helps.
