Have you checked the battery pack fuse and the main circuit breaker? More details for both of them can be found on the user's manual page 19.

Art if the batteries on the scooter are real low ie 5-6 volts or less then the charger will not pick them up because its not designed to charge really low batteries. If you have a voltmeter you can set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger port. This will give you the current battery voltage. I would guess its very low. The batteries on some scooters are very small 12-12ah batteries and don't last as long as the bigger UI and larger batteries. If you are not getting any reading at the charger port take the battery case apart and check the wiring and each battery individually with the voltmeter. If they are showing fully charged then check the voltage at the underneath of the case that makes contact with the scooter (with the batteries still wired correctly) If you are getting full voltage there then check the battery contacts in the scooter to make sure they are not bent or corroded. Reinsert the battery case making sure that you seat it well into the contacts and try turning the power on again. If you are still not getting power then there is a problem somewhere else and you may need to have it checked by a tech. Hope this helps

What makes the on board charger not work an how cah it be tested to see if it is good.


There is a fuse in the charger and another in the chair for the charging circuit. Poor connections to the controller and at the batteries will do it too. If the batteries have been completely discharged, then the onboard charger does not have enough power to start recharging them. If that is the case, use an automotive 12 volt charger that has no automatic charging circuits in it to charge them individually. That means removing both batteries from the chair and connect the charger to one battery at a time. You can test the charger with the batteries disconnected and measuring the voltage on the wires you just took off the batteries. The voltage should be 28 volts or so if the charger is working.

I plug charger in and nothing happens no lights or anything


got the same problem the gel cells drain to a level that is too low for the charger. A suggested fix I have seen is to jumper a car battery across the gel cell to fool the charger so it will go into charge mode.
I have not tried this my self yet as I have to remove the chair to get to the batteries on my father in laws ride on chair. The nursing home took the chair off him and left it in a shed without it being on float charge for over 6 months and now I can't charge the chair up.

The batteries need charging and when you plug in the charger and the power is on the lights wil flash indicating that the charger is plugged in. Now look at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair and you should see a voltmeter. With the charger plugged in the voltmeter will indicate about 5-6 amps and after charging overnight the voltmeter should be reading 0 amps. If when you plug in the charger cord and the voltmeter indicates 0 amps then I would suspect that the charger is not working or that the fuse is blown in the charger circuit. The only way to see if the batteries charge would be to borrow or find an offboard charger that will plug into the charger port located under the front of the joystick and after charging for 10-12 hours see if the battery level lights show full charge Hope this helps

The chair won't power on and the batteries won't charge. I know the charger works because I have tried it on another chair. When I plug the charger into the chair the light stays green and nothing...


After you changed the batteries, did the power chair sit unused for several weeks? It sounds more like a battery or fuse issue than a charger issue. If there are blinking lights when you try to turn the power chair on (not while attached to the charger), or it comes on then goes back off by itself quickly, there may be something else going on.
1- The green light on the charger is telling you that the batteries are not accepting any more power, either they are fully charged or they have oxidized/gone solid from sitting without being put on the charger for too long.
2-The scrolling lights on the controller when the charger is plugged in just confirms that the chair is connected to the charger, so it sounds like everything is connected properly and working. The horn will work fine when it is attached to the charger as it is getting power from the wall outlet.
3- If it was a fuse issue, the lights would not come on at all when the charger is NOT attached, even after the battery has been fully charged, which is what it sounds like is going on. The fuses can blow if you operate the chair on a slick surface or one of the drive tires spin out. The batteries will be fully charged but because the circuit is not complete, the chair will not power on.

I recommend checking the fuses and changing them if necessary. You are in luck because this is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix as they are standard automotive fuses found at any auto parts store or even Walmart for around $2 each (you need 2). The fuses are located inside the gray battery covers under the seat, attached to the leads connected to the battery cables. The straps holding the covers on the batteries are tight, you may want to use a flat head screwdriver to help release the clips. While you are down there, inspect the tread on the tires, if it is worn or slick it may need to be replaced for safety.
I hope this information is helpful to you- good luck!

My Hoveround MPV5 batteries will not charge, do you think it is a battery problem or a charger problem?


If you plug the charger into the wall, turn on the power switch and the light comes on, the charger should be working properly. Here is a way to test it-
Attach the charger that came with the power chair to the power chair controller firmly and turn the power chair on, while the charger is running. What should happen:the lights on the controller will scroll back and forth. If this does NOT happen and you can confirm the charger is turned on, the charger handle is fully seated inside the controller receptacle and the wall outlet has power, then the charger may have a problem and needs to be replaced.

If the charger is OK, then there may be a problem with the batteries. Here are some sypmtoms:
1-You connect the charger but the light on the charger never goes red, it just stays green.
2-You connect the charger but the light goes from red to green VERY fast.
3-The charger light goes from red to green but when you disconnect the charger and press the power button on the controller, you only have one flashing red light, or the batteries drain within just a few minutes of use.
4-The power chair has been stored or sitting idle for several months.
5- The power chair has been connected to the charger 24-7 for several months.
Any of the above examples indicates that the batteries are oxidized or damaged and will most likely need to be replaced. The MPV5 takes two, U1 12 volt 33 amp batteries which can be purchased at any battery warehouse store like Interstate Batteries or Batteries Plus.
Good luck!

The wheelchair will only move when the charger is plugged in. Unplug and all lights are normal but no motor actuation. thank you fo4r your help


berry boy Not alot of information but when you say all lights are normal do you mean the battery level lights are all lit up and there are no flashes. Usually when this happens the battery level is too low to make the chair move. When you have the chair plugged up the charger gives enough power to make it move. If you have a digital voltmeter set it 200 vdc then plug the 2 test leads into the 2 outter charger port holes. You should be able to read the battery level and after a full charge should be reading 25-27 volts. Hope this helps

New batteries does not seem to fully charge. tested the output of the charger with meter and it shows no voltage on the output of the charger, but the two lights flash quickly when plugged in to the wall...


The measurements below are for a 12 volt charger or across one battery at a time. In a 24 volt charger or across both batteries at once, double the values.
The charger will not show any output unless connected to a battery. To test the charger, attach the charger to the battery but do not plug in the charger. Connect a meter to the battery and read the voltage (9.8v - 11.6v).
Now plug in the charger. Read the battery again (13.6 - 14.2v).
The voltage must not be higher than 14.8 on the battery or the battery will over-charge - the charger needs service. If the voltage does not come up to 13.2v, the charger is not running. Again, the charger needs service.
Be patient. You can wait ten minutes and measure again. Batteries respond slowly to the charger.

I think my charger isn't charging the batterys


Have someone check if the on board charger light is green after you have charged it all night. Most probably you have a charger problem and this will also create a battery problem since you haven't been charging them with a bad chargger. If medicare purchased your chair then you can find a repair service to repair your chair and Medicare will pay for most of the repair

Hooveround MPV won't move


Most likely either one or both of the batteries have a dead cell. Have your batteries load tested to check their condition.
