I need to change the batteries on my M51 but I can't seem to get the seat off. The manual, and on line manuals do not match up with my chair. No seat clevis, no latch bar?

RShappa On the right hand side of your seat there is a black lever. Carefully pull up on the lever and try to lift the seat from the seat post. Now it is probably rusty or stuck try turning or twisting the seat as you hold the lever up and pull up at the same time By working the seat back and forth and pulling you should be able to get some upward movement from the seat. Keep at it and you should eventually be able to get it off. If you can get someone to help then it would be easier on you. Don't forget to unplug the joystick cable at the rear of the chair from the cable attached to the seat. This you don't want to break or stretch. Now when you get the seat off and the batteries replaced grease the post really well to help the next time you need to get it off. Hope this helps you

Reset button on pronto m51

There is no reset button on a M51 chair. Invacare puts fuses in the battery harnesses. The manual may say there is a reset but trust me there is not.

Pronto M51 feels forced when driving it.

The squealing noise is probably a bearing either in one of the four smaller tires called casters. The problem will not likely cause a break down right away but should be checked by someone mechanically inclined or trained in power wheelchairs. I don't know what you mean by the chair being "forced". Need more info.
May have something to do with batteries.

If the chair is driving slower and batteries are new their is a recall for that joystick from Invacare. Invacare is replacing joysticks for free.

I bought a used m51 pronto sure step powerchair. The powerchair has no batteries or charger. I would like to buy a used charger and get batteries. Also where do you plug in the charger there seems to be a...

make sure it really doesn't have a charger ...
How,by taking that seat off,disconnect the joystick cable ,
take off the seat ,remove the black should which does or will cover the U1 Gellcell battery's you will have to buy. In the back of that chair there will be a box that has two cords one that pugs to the power cord( you'll also be needing to buy ,you can from radio shack if you don't have one that is)but the other wire connects to the model "'brain'' of the chair that's in the front of the chair. If its not there you'll need a on board charger,pluse two battery's and that power cable that plugs into the back of your chair ,It looks like and is the same as the power cable in the back of you computer.

Good luck hope I was of some help.

How do i reset the curcuit breaker on pront m51

The circuit breaker is located on the base of the chair. It is a small button about half the size of a dime, and it often has a flexible cover over it. If it is tripped, you will feel a click when you push it as it resets.
