I have a Invacare Pronto M6 powerchair that is not working. I've charged the batteries with an external charger. The power lite is flashing red once, then green 3 times. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Marilyn Not having worked on many M6 chairs in a long time I would venture that you have a left motor error indicated by the 3 flashes however since you don't have a indication of full power you might have a battery problem because a low battery can cause the chair to flash also. If you can get someone with a digital voltmeter to measure the voltage at the charger port on the joystick it will let you elimitate the batteries as the problem. Place the voltmeter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes in the charger port the reading should be 24-27+ volts if the batteries are fully charged. If you are not getting anything or a very low reading then that could be the problem. Replace both batteries with U1 batteries. After yo replace the batteries and charge them before use then turn the chair on and see if you are getting the smae flashes If you are then I suspect it is the left motor and it will need to be replaced,\. Hope this helps you

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways


Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

Invacare what does it mean when light on charger continually blinks red when charging, It wont move


The red light is the power light and if the red light is blinking the charger is bad or the wiring is bad on the chair or the batteries are bad. Usually it's the charger.

The red light on the transformer/Charger means the charger is bad. Sometimes it can also be battery harness wiring. Most often it is the charger that needs replaced.

I am getting a flashing green light when I try to charge my batteries on the Pronto M51 what does this mean


why did you change the batteries, did you verify that it wasn't the charger in the first place, sometime the charger will appear to charge but actually isn't. put a meter on one battery then plug in charger if voltage goes up charger is good if not look for loose connections and or bad charger.

Pronto M6 chair will not work. When the power switch is turned on, the LED light flash Red followed by three Green. I can't find what this error code meas.... Pls Help thanks Phil


Phil the red means battery is low and the green is a speed limit code because of the low battery if you have charged your batteries and you still get the red then you need to check the charger after charging all night does the yellow light on the charger turn green? if when you first plug in the charger if the red light is on and the other light is green then there is a problem with the wiring or connection to the batteries from the charger and you aren't charging the batteries. if when you plug the charger in and you get a red and yellow light then the charger is working but you don't ever ge a green light and the battery level gauge is still showing red then you need to replace the batteries Hope this helps
