Ranch well the red flash indicates a low battery and the 5 flashes indicate a bad left brake. Now try charging the batteries until you get a green light on your charger then turn on the chair it shouldn't flash the red if the batteries are accepting the charge. If your batteries are 2-3 years old it could be time to change them. If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider for help or a service company like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733. If Medicare did buy the chair then you are eligible for a new chair every 5 years and yours is almost 8 years old. Contact a local provider that you trust to check into getting you a new chair. Hope this helps you

Hello! I have a M51 Invacare Pronto that is not working. When I turn it on, the service light flashes eight times, one red battery light flashes as well, but nothing happens when I move the joystick.


If it flashes 7 green and one red for the 8 total then it's a joystick error. If it's 8 green and one red then it is a control/brain error code. Measure voltage on batteries when turn chair on. Both batteries need to stay above 11.5 volts each.

Nutron r51


The age of the Nutron is not the issue, unfortunately. I have seen problems with this model right out of the box. The joystick control is the first area to check. If you have to compensate the joystick so far to the right to correct, you may have a damaged joystick gimbal. You may also have a bad joystick control board or damaged connecting cable to the controller on the bottom frame. Check for damaged, pinched loose or disconnected wiring below at the controller module. With a folding frame it is easy for the wiring to be become damaged or dislodged. Check for cut damaged pinched wiring at the joystick. With a handheld programmer (dealer) you can check for error codes in the fault log. With a poor performance issue there may not be a fault recorded in the log of the computer module. I have also seen these motors fail prematurely. In this case your left motor is dragging or weak causing the chair to go left. With a programmer (dealer tool) you can compensate for this while waiting for new parts(temp fix). Sometimes the motor brushes burn or hang up. Try blocking up the chair off the ground and run it no load to check for motor performance and unusual sounds. Check for joystick dead spots or uneven action. A quick check of the joystick would be to plug in a known good one at the dealer to test. With the chair blocked up try tapping the motor housing to see if the performance changes. Inspect the brushes if you have access to the brush caps.Check the obvious first, plugs, pinched, broken wires and partial plug disconnects and corrosion. If you have a voltmeter you can do some checks on the motors and brakes. Going from memory, the motor leads large black and large red should read zero ohms with the 2 small white wires for the brake reading between 60 and 70 ohms. Check the Invacare manufacturer website for exact specs and technical info for this model.
Hope this helps.

Invacare MKIV R11 Flashing lights


One of the most common controllers, codes to help you and others.

powerc24.jpgpowerc25.jpg



VSI & VR2 Joystick error flash codes:
1 RED BAR:
Low Battery Voltage The battery is flat (more likely).
Or the battery has a bad connection (which is unlikely)
2 RED BARS: Left Motor Disconnected The left motor is disconnected. Check all the connections for physical disconnection or corrosion or burning usually caused by the salt poured onto the roads every winter.
3 RED BARS: Left Motor Wiring Trip The left motors wiring has a short circuit. Check all connections and leads for wear and chafing between the left motor and the battery cables or chassis
4 BARS: Right Motor Disconnected The right motor is disconnected. Check all the connections for physical disconnection or corrosion or burning usually caused by the salt poured onto the roads every winter.
5 BARS: Right Motor Wiring Trip The right motors wiring has a short circuit. Check all connections and leads for wear and chafing between the right motor and the battery cables or chassis
6 BARS: Activated if you turn on your wheelchair with an external device like the Charger still connected.
7 BARS: Possible Joystick Trip, Make sure that the joystick is in the centre position before switching on. If you still get this when switching on then joystick is probably faulty.
8 BARS: A control system trip. Make sure that all connections are secure and if so the power module or control pod is probably faulty. Test by substitution of known good one.
9 BARS: The parking brakes have a bad connection or have a failed solenoid, or any lever or switches that disconnect drive for pushing the chair manually may be pulled or switched.
10 BARS: Over voltage detected. This can happen with a bad battery connection although unlikely. More likely your battery charger is faulty and is overcharging your batteries quite severely.
1 BAR to 10 BARS and back in a "ripple" every few seconds. Joystick not cantered when turned on. Switch off and try again.
1 BAR to 6 FLASH every few seconds. System Asleep. Switch off and back on. Time before sleep can be adjusted or disabled in programming


Hope this helps, If so please click the "Yes" button

The light blinks red 1 2 3 green


You can visit this website to find answers on what the flashing trouble indicator lights mean: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
Locate the page that has the controller used on your power chair/scooter and count how many lights are flashing to diagnose the trouble. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

Not charging


The batteries need to be replaced. When the chair sits for a while without being charged, the batteries wear down to a point that they cannot be charged.

M1V R11 Joy stick blinks 5 times


I believe this fault code indicates a left parking brake fault. Check all the connections from the motor/gear/brake assembly on BOTH motors (sometimes the controller gets confused). Follow the wires from the motor to the controller and reconnect them all. Make sure the free-wheel lever is in gear by taking out of gear, and placing back into gear firmly.

Good luck.
