When the charger light stays green when you plug it in it means the charger is not actually charging. Either the batteries are bad and will not take a charge anymore or the charger is not operating correctly. It sounds more like a battery issue. The battery voltage needs to be measured on each battery with a volt meter. If the voltage is less than 10 volts on either battery they both will need to be replaced.

Clicking noises from the drive wheel area usually means the gearbox on that side has a minor to a more severe issue. Call the place where you got the chair. I'm glad it's running and it could continue to run even with the clicking noise. It could be something as a loose hub nut on the wheel or something rubbing when you are making a turn.

When did it quit turning on? How old are the batteries? Does the charger have lights that turn on? Did it drive slow or poor performance before it quit starting up?

The Pride Jazzy 1115 originally came with the Pilot controller (Pride part # CTLDC 1030) and it has served you well. The manufacturer,Penny and Giles, is no longer manufacturing the Pilot. Fortunately, Pride is providing a new VSI controller 4 key 50 (70) Amp for the Jazzy 1115 (Pridepart number CTLDC1270 ) (manufacturer P & G part #D50148) for a retail cost of $1607. The new VSI controller will also need a new joystick mounting bracket assembly part #FRMASMB 4767 retail $30.
It is possible to have your Pilot controller rebuilt. There are many rebuild facilities that will sell you a reconditioned joystick (VSI or Pilot) for about $500 that will work on your unit. You can opt to send in yours for repair or reconditioning or purchase a reconditioned unit. Try MonsterScooterParts.com, TheAftermarketGroup.com, Wheelchair Wizard in Citrus Heights, CA.
The Pilot controller was a very robust unit but very expensive for Penny and Giles to manufacture. The new replacement VSI controller actually performs better and is more streamlined and smaller. The VSI pushbutton overlay (4 key) is very easy to use, The pushbuttons control on/off/speed increase/decrease. The replacement is easy to do as long as you remember to order the new mounting bracket assembly with the VSI because the old Pilot bracket will not work. All it takes to install is 2 screws to mount the control on the bracket, 2 plugs to connect, and 2 cable ties to secure the wiring. You may want to spray electrical contact cleaner into the plug receptacles on the electronics tray to clean them before plugging in the new parts. Hope this helps.

This can be an aggravating problem with a simple solution. There are keyways on each axle shaft, and what oldtimers call a Woodruff key. That's the piece of metal that forces the wheels to turn with the axle. Try tightening the locknuts. If that doesn't work they can be replaced easily.

Without the charger the batteries would go dead. You could put a voltmeter across the batteries and you should read more than 28 VDC while charging.

How old is it? Maybe you need to check all the connections, and do a google search, there are lots of similar problems and solutions that lead you to Fixya.

Check battery harness, circuit breaker, all connections. Load test each battery. If any one of the batteries fails the load test, replace both of them. Also ensure that charger is actually charging

You can visit this website to find answers on what the flashing trouble indicator lights mean: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
Locate the page that has the controller used on your power chair/scooter and count how many lights are flashing to diagnose the trouble. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

Yep It sure does Why didn't you charge the chair for 2 months? Charge at least once a week if you don't use it daily. Always break in the new batteries by using the chair daily for 10-15 days charging everynite then charge once a week if it sits for that long without use. Always put up fully charged. Do this and your batteries should last 3 -4 years Charge overnite if you use daily and never charge more than 24 hours Good Luck

yep they are so that you are providing 24 v dc to power the motors. Your chair should have 2 battery boxes that contain one 22nf battery each and have the connectors that allow them to supply 24 volts to your chair. Hope this helps

Flight Systems Inc is a company in PA that rebuilds/repairs most controllers for powerchairs. You can call them with your specs to see if they can help, and, they are cheap compared to a new controller! Here's their address and they have an 800 number too.

Good luck!

Does the lights on the joystick come on? If not you probably have the batteries wired wrong check that red on red, black on black. There should be a wiring diagram under the shroud check to make sure it is correct. If the joysticks comes on make sure that you are not in freewheel

If you have an off-board charger that plugs into the joystick there are two lights on the charger one red(power on) and the other yellow (turns green when fully charged). Plug it into the chair and if the light is green then you have fully charged the batteries. Now if you have the on-board charger the charger meter on the rear of the chair will resd zero when fully charged. Hope this helps ya

Hi. Sounds like a stuck or worn brush in the right hand motor. If one or both of the brushs are sticking, give it a light file on the sides of the brush until it slides in and out smoothly. Be carefull tightening the brush caps, as they can crack if tightened too hard, but they do need to be done up firm. Good luck. Neil.

You don't do load tests on deep-cycle batteries, unlike car batteries. Car batt's are measured in cold cranking amps, deep cycle are in amp-hours. The best way to test is to drive the chair (which loads it), and see how long it runs. It should take you a good five miles and still be in the green. If not, time for new batts.
