Your version has a Dynamic Controls model controller and joystick. Unplug the charger and engage the motor/brake lever so the chair is no longer in free-wheel mode (con't push by hand) Turn the chair off, wait 5 seconds, turn the chair back. If chair still does not run and your wrench is flashing you have a problem. Count the wrench flashes - the flash count indicates the error detected. 3, 4, 5, and 6 flashes indicate and error with the motors. 3=Left motor fault 4=Right motor fault 5=Left brake fault (may not be engaged) 6=Right brake fault (may not be engaged) Any other fault code usually means the electronics or wiring is bad and not worth fixing.
If chair has a tilt, recline or lift seat on it it may be going into lock-out mode on its own due to a limit switch fault. If you don't have any of these options then I suggest you remove the joystick, controller and any wire harness between the two and send them to a shop like mine for repair. The usual lock out light chase is from left to right - not right to left so this is suspect of a different issue.
make sure the motors are not disengaged, turn off chair, can you move it by pushing it? if so lock the wheels and try again. next is the controller in lockout. press and hold the on button till it beeps push joystick forward til it beeps pull it back til it beeps turn off try again. you can call 1-800-800-8586 for tech support
sounds like a charger inhibit problem. Whenever you charge your chair the charger inhibit shuts down the chair so it can't be moved while charging. If you are getting this then that function is not working. Lets try this if you know of someone who has a chair or scooter with an off-board charger see if you can borrow it. Plug the off-board charger into the charger port located under the front of the joystick (don't have the on-board charger plugged in) and then turn the charger on. turn the chair's power on and you hopefully will see the lights blinking again indicating a charger plugged in (charger inhibit) the lights on the charger should be red and yellow (yellow turning green when fully charged) If you still get the problem with the off-board charger then your problem is in the controller or power module and this requires a new one. If Medicare paid for your chair you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-81-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have them fix it for you and bill Medicare for most of the repair costs. Hope this helps you
I wouuld suspect a controller problem Since the programming is in the controller and it suddenly changed your operation I would expect something screwed up the controller. Have your provider check it with an Invacare programmer to make sure that the settings for your chair are correct in the controller. If Medicare paid for your chair then you can contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 and have them send out a tech to work on your chair. They will bill Medicare for most of the repair costs Hope this helps
