Re: CAN'T LIFT OFF SEAT OF JET3 POWER CHAIR? batteries
Richard The seat is probably rusted on the seat post It will take alot of turning and pulling upward at the same time to get it off. Try spraying a penetrant on the post just below the seat to see if that will help with the turning and pulling just keep at it. It can be a tedious task and frustrating Hope this helps

Chances are you batteries are beyond their usable life and need replacement -OR- you have a disconnect between either battery and the chair. Please check to make sure the circuit breaker isn't popped, all the fuses under the shrink-wrap on the positive terminals are good and that the battery connectors are seated properly. If the batteries each measure 12-14 volts at the battery post while the chair is plugged in and either drop below 10volts when unplugged then your batteries need replacing.
Flo First you have to unplug the nine pin connector at the rear of the chair and the 3 pin charger plug. Then there is a handle under the right side of the seat. Push it forward to release the pressure on the seat post. Now the hard part have someone with some strength twist and pull up on the seat at the same time until it comes off the seat post. After the seat is off then remove the plastic shroud covering the base and there you will find the batteries. Unplug the battery cables from the wiring harness and lift out them of the base. Hope this helps you
Adjusting your seat height ....
1) Locate your Lock Tab ,this will be located under the front of your seat.
2) Flip the Tab of your lock tab,this will unlock your seat and make it feel rocky
3) Lift your seat off the bottom part of your Jet3, set the seat right next to your Jet3
4) Locate the four seat Post,two in the front two in the back.These post will have at least five holes,the holes are your adjustment
5) Locate the four Pins,two in the front two in the back.These pins are in one of the five holes on the seat posts.
Now that we know where everything is .....
6) Pull the two front pins located on the front seat post,putting the pins in a bottom hole will raise the font of the seat ,putting the pins in the top holes will lower the font of the seat."the same goes for the rear of the seat''.
Adjust your seat accordingly....
be sure everything lines up when putting your seat back on ,also before driving make sure your seat is locked .. Happy Riding..
Bob First unplug both connectors from the rear of the chair. Then on the right hand side under the seat push the small handle forward until it stops, then rotate the seat and pull up at the same time the seat should lift off the seat post. Carefully place the seat on the floor next to the base. Remove the shroud pulling upward to release the velcor fastners and voila!! the batteries. Now if the seat is hard to pull up try twisting it back and forth to help get it loose from the seat post. You might need some help in lifting because this seat and attached parts are heavy. After replacing the batteries grease the post to help getting it off easier next time. Hope this helps you
Eyeglasses In front of the seat there are the two seat support pipes extending out from under the seat. push in the buttons sticking out of those pipes and lift the front of the seat up. Now you should be able tosee the batteries. If you disconnect the joystick cable from the rear of the chair you can pull forwqrd on the seat and lift it off the frame. You might need some help in getting the seat off. Once you have the seat removed access to the batteries should be a snap. Hope this helps you
Bubba, Under the front of the seat is a latch that you must release there is a rubber block that must be rotated forward to be able to release the two little knobs that it is wedged between Rotate the knobs inward and lift the front of the seat. the seat will flip toward the rear of the chair and you now have access to the batteries. to remove the seat disconnect the joystick cable from the base and slide the seat forward after you have it tilte back and lift it off the base. Hope this helps you
If you are able you need to remove the seat. Lift up on the lever on the right side under the seat and lft Don't forget to disconnect the joystick cable that goes into the shroud near the seat post. After you have gotten the seat out of the seat post remove the shroud covering the base by pulling up to relaese the velcro tabs. You should be able to see the batteries. Disconnect the cables and lift out each battery. Replace with new ones making sure you reattach the wires to the correct polarity. Red to pos black to neg. Hope this helps
Unplug the joystick cable under the seat remove the seat if on a post lift handle on right side under seat and lift seat off post if not look for release levers behind front seat post and seat will rotate backwards to give you access to the batteriesdisconnect battery cables and install as on old batteries to new ones and reinstall Hope this helps
I've never heard of a 1HD wheel chair and I've been at this for a long time. Assuming it's a Pride Heavy Duty (HD) then you would start by disconnecting the joystick from the base by unplugging it at the rear of the base, and cut any nylon cable ties holding the joystick cable in place to the base. Then remove the seat. Depending on the model, you can do this either with a lever on the side that unlocks the seat to allow it to pivot. If yours has this lever, unlock and turn the seat very slightly, then lift up with a **** with both hands and it should come off after a few good tugs...some need more coaxing. If the seat is a "post-mounted" seat, you will see it attached to the base with four posts at each corner and there should be a retaining ring holding the posts together. Remove the pins and lift the seat off(helps to have two people). It may have a rear locking seat where you release the front mechanism under the front of the seat and tilt the seat up, then slide the seat slightly forward and lift up. These are the only three ways I've seen a seat attached to a base. Once the seat is off, you need to remove the shroud covering the batteries. Many are simply held on with velcro, so if you don't see any screws holding the shroud on, just lift up on it and pull it away from the velcro. If there are screws, remove them to lift off the shroud. Now you will see the batteries. Disconnect both of them and move the wiring out of the way. Remove the front battery, then the rear, and replace with new batteries and reassemble. The seat and batteries are pretty heavy, so it is nice to have a helper.
There's a lever on the side of the chair that you disengage to unlock it. First, make sure the chair is in gear and power is off, then unplug the Joystick from the base; just follow the cable coming out of the joystick to the rear of the chair where it plugs in and rock it back and forth to unplug.
Unlock the seat with the lever, and turn the seat slightly to the left or right and lift up. Usually, it will come right off. If it's been a while since it's been removed, or if a heavier person has been bouncing atop it, it may need more coaxing. Try squirting some WD-40 at the base of the seat where the pole connects and let it run down into the shaft of the pole. Wiggle seat back and forth a bit and try lifting at the same time.
Now you can access the batteries by lifting up on the corners of the cover called the shroud. These are held on by Velcro strips so just pull up and they will give way. You will see the two batteries inside. Replace them with sealed, gel-acid deep-cycle batteried, about 32-34 amp-hour rating. Fully charge for two or three hours before using. On first uses, let the batteries discharge almost to the red zone before charging overnight. After a week, they will be well broken in. Good luck.
