Rolfe could be a couple of things check the brushes in each motor for excess wear and check to see if the motors are getting overly warm after driving for awhile if they are then you could have a brake problem on one or both of the motors. If your brushes are less than 1/8" long then they need replacing and you can have a provider order some from Pride for you or have them service the motors for you. If it is the brake then it will have to be replaced by a tech who knows what to do if you can get the brake from Pride. Now I'm not suggesting this or recommending this because of safety and liability issues but you could remove the brake from the rear of the motor that is getting hot (if it is) leaving the wiring connected and hang the brake in the rear of the chair so it won't break the wiring and drive the chair to see if that makes a difference. If you remove the brake and wiring then the chair won't move at all because the controller is looking for the brake when you turn on your chair if the wiring is disconnected you will get a fault error and the chair won't move. Also have someone load test your new batteries just because"new" doesn't mean good and a weak battery will reduce distance driven. Hope this helps

How long can i run chair on one charge'


With new, fully charged batteries, you can get a good 8 miles at full speed with a normal weight load on the chair. The chair goes about 4-5 mph, so an hour and a half or more at full speed on level terrain. Be sure to always recharge daily, keep the chair on the charger when not in use(batteries will die if you don't)and avoid running the batteries all the way down....try to stay in the top 2/3 charge range and you will get more life.

Isabel you could have battery problems or it could be a charger problem. you would need to contact your provider (where you got the chair and ask them to check it for you) Now Plug the charger in for a couple of hours and look at the light on the charger (it is located under the rear of the chair) if it is green then it indicates a full charge if you have no light then it could be that the batteries are getting the charge or the chharger is not operating A tech will haveto determine the problem for you. Sorry I couldn't give you a instant fix Hope this helps

I can fully charge the Chair and my battery lights will flash Red after about a mile.. I have fully drained the batteries and when I plug the Chair in, the Meter goes to #4. the Meter has 1-6..


It sound like your batteries need to be replaced. how old are they? The battery life eventually dwindles down to almost nothing it says its full because it is full to its capacity however it's capacity has depleted.
