Its unusual for a charger that was working to stop working because you replaced the batteries. Does your chair operate correctly with the new batteries? If so then I would check the connection of the on-board charger at the controller box located in the front base section ahead of the batteries. Trace the cable from the charger to the controller and make sure it didn't come unplugged from the controller. Your red light on the charger would still light up but you would never charge the batteries. Now if you can locate an off board charger (borrow from a friend or neighbor that has one or borrow one from your local provider) plug it in the charger port located under the front of the joystick and see if the batteries will get fully charged that way. If you can't find any cable problems with the on-board charger and the off-board charger charges the batteries then there is a problem with the on-board charger or the charging system through the controller. It would be cheaper to purchase an off-board charger if the borrowed one works than try to replace the on-board charger. Hope this helps

Controller has 8 flashing lights


After researching this question for you I came up with a charging issue when the lights keep flashing. This means that battery is either bad or came loose or the charger on board went bad and will not complete the charge my best advice to you is to take it in to a local shop to have it serviced. Thanks for using FixYa! John

The chair has been standing idle for quite some months and the battery is obviously dead. Will I be able to re-charge the batteries or will I need to purchase new ones?thanks


Hi. This depends on how the batteries perform after you recharge them.
Sometimes you can get a bit more life by completely running them flat. Then reverse charge them. Then run flat again and recharge the correct way. Use a light bulb to run them flat. You will need to remove the batteries from the machine to do this. When you charge the batteries, charge them in parallel with a 12 volt car charger. Keep the charge rate down to 4-5 amps.This will ensure that both batteries are charged up to the same level.
Be carefull with batteries, as they give of hydrogen and oxygen gas when charging, and this can explode if there are any sparks from the charger terminals.
After doing this try the batteries in the machine. Charge them with the correct charger and see how far you can travel.
The batteries probably wont be as good as new ones, but they might do for a while.
Good luck. Neil.

My chair wont charge in either of the charging ports


It's either a dead charger or dead battery(ies). You will need a voltage tester meter to check. First check the charger by setting your meter to a setting over 24 volts (your chair is a 24 volt system). Test the voltage at the charging port by placing the two probes into the two outside ports (there's three ports in a triangle...test the two opposite ports.) You should get a reading in excess of 24 volts but less than 26. Now plug the charger into one of the ports and check the voltage again. If the voltage is now higher than the first reading, your charger is working and you will need to replace the batteries, if it is the same, your charger is bad.

New battries won't charge.


Sounds like the batteries are completely dead, you'll probably need to replace them, sometimes you can only use batteries until they die, and that goes for Wheelchair Batteries too. If they won't charge or keep a charge then they are dead.
