Speed control won't work. stays on high. cannot adjust.


Talk to the maker of the chair, you'll probably need to replace the speed controller. You'll need the make, model and serial number of the chair when you contact them.

How do you increase the speed in Jet3 power chair


I take it you are talking about increasing the maximum speed beyond the maximum the chair is set for now! the max listed speed for the jet 3 is 4mps, so if your chair is doing that there is only changing a load of hardware to increase speed past that (it is very costly) if your chair is second hand it may be that the chairs programming has been changed to reduce the max speed say for in-door use or for elderly with slow reactions to better control the chair, if that is the case it depends on the controller you have it would need a programmer box, you can buy these on ebay and the like or you could take it to a mobility shop and see if they will change it, a lot of these shops will offer to do it free to try and get your future custom, it only takes a couple of mins, most will just plug in to the charge / data port on the controller, select from the menu and adjust the speed etc. hope that helps.

What can i do to speed upp chair?


1. Use the buttons or dial on the joystick to adjust speeds.
2. Use the programmer to reprogram the top speed- which will be about 4mph. This is a pretty typical top speed on low-end wheelchairs. Remember, speed affects performance- the faster you go, the worse the braking and turning gets, and the tippier the chair gets.Also remember that wheelchairs have very few safety features for crashes and tips.
3. Invest in a pair of high performance motors and motor controller (which probably means a new joystick, too). You'll also need better batteries since the faster speeds will put more demand on them. Your best source for this sort of information will be wheelchair user forums.
4. Buy a high performance wheelchair, like the Bounder High Performance (http://www.wheelchairs.com/fast.htm)

Most people who use chairs want more speed, but wheelchairs are TIGHTLY regulated by the government, and there are lots of restrictions on what they can and cannot do.

How do I turn off the pronto m41 speed limiter


Hello,

The Pronto M41 does not have a speed limiter per say. If the chair used to go faster than it does now then you may have some kind of problem with the chair. If the chair has always driven' slow, that is slower than the maximum 3.5 to 4 MPH then a Invacare Remote programmer is needed to program the chair to go it's full speed.
Seek a Invacare dealer and ask them if they can check the programming.

How do I speed up a Merit Vision Sport?


As the user of the chair, you will not have the ability to speed up your chair unless you have the specific programmer to raise the speed. Typically mobility specialist will turn your speeds down until you get used to the chair and then come back out when you are capable of driving chair at faster speeds. You will have to call the dealer who slowed it down or, another DME company in your area to have the chair speed adjusted.

I have a FWD hoveround and would like to bypass the 85% foward speed. Is there a way??


YES,
BUT NOT BY MUCH.
YOU NEED A PP1 PROGRAMMER BY PENNY AND GILES. PLIG INTO THE JOYSTICK (UNDER) TURN ON THE CHAIR AND PRESS THE UP ARROW UNTILL YOU GET TO SPEED ADJUST. PRESS THE UP ARROW SERVERAL TIMES UNTIL THE SPEED REACHES 90, THATS MAX. UNPLUG, SHUT OFF THE CHAIR AND TURN BACK ON. THE CHAIR WILL NOW REACH A HIGHER SPEED. IT WILL NOT GO TO 100. YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE YOUR CHAIR TO A DME STORE TO BE PROGRAMMED.

GOOD LUCK
TIM

All the lights are blinking on the speed display.. we've had the chair plugged into both the back of the chair and the armrest.. the chair still won't move.


The speed display will flash whenever you have the charger plugged in. Either in the back or in the joystick. Hopefully you didn't have them both plugged in at the same time. If after you unplug the charger you still get the flashing speed lights then you have an inhibit problem with the chair. The inhibit function will keep you from being able to drive the chair while charging. This repair is beyond anything you can do and must be referred to a Pride dealer or Repair service Hope this helps you

How do we lock out the fast speed on grandpa's chair so he doesn't hurt anyone?


Ann You will have to contact the provider of Gramp's chair to ask if they have a programmer for Invacare chairs. Then they will have to program the chair for a lower speed. Of course you can turn the speed down on the joystick but Grandpa is probably the one that will put it back to fast cause its going too slow. try also contacting Roadrunner Mobility@ 1-800-467-2668 and ask if they have a tech in your area that has a progeammer to slow his chair down. Hope this helps

How do I increase the speed . It seems that it ran faster on the straight and now I don't feel with all the bars lit that the speed is like it used to be. Please tell me what I can do to make sure I will...


How long have you noticed the decrease in speed? Are you charging the batteries regularly? Have you checked your air pressure in your drive tires?
If the batteries are getting old or the power chair has been stored for a while, the batteries may not be taking a full charge. If your speed indicator is showing full like always but the power chair is not responding like it used to, it may be a battery issue.
As you operate the power chair, listen for noise and pay attention to see if there is any vibration, this may indicate a mechanical problem that is causing power drain.
If not, your power chair may still be within normal parameters, just not "new out of the box" anymore. Make sure that you decrease your speed when going up inclines to avoid excess wear on the motors.
Good luck!
