Judy He has to disconnect the joystick cable and then pull the seat off the post raising up the seat turning lever and twisting and pulling upward on the seat at the same time. It can be hard because the seats are heavy and can be rusted. Just keep pulling and turning at the same time Once he has the seat off he can remove the cover over the batteries and disconect the cables going to the batteries and the large connector going to the power pack. Reinstall the new batteries just like the old ones replace the cover. Put some axle grease or vaseline on the seat post reinstall the seat plug in the joystick cable and you should be good to go Hope this helps

I have a pronto sure step m51 I just put new set of battery's but the joystick doesn't turn on

The joystick connector may not be securely connected to the controller connector.

The battery harness may not be properly connected.

The battery fuse in the battery harness may be blown. If so, you have to get a new one from Invacare.

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.

One red light three green flash when turned on

Your chair has a motor problem. The code does not tell which side it is. Make sure both motors have the brakes in the drive position before turning on the chair. Also check that both motors are plugged into the main control module in the base of the chair.

I would check your wire harness. The starter is close to where you would be working on the radiator. I have not had the pleasure to put one in but i know its a tight squeez in there.

How do I charge My Pronto M51 motorized wheelchair?

Margie,   Yes you may charge it overnight. If you use it everyday,charge it every night. Once the charger senses 24 volts it stops sending a charge,so they cannot be overcharged.  I suggest when you go to bed put on the charger and unplug it when you get up in the morning.
