Pride doesn't make a Jazzy 115. Please check your chair and owners manual to get the correct model so we can help. How old is the chair? The flash codes you are getting depend on the model, year it was born, and the tkype of controller installed.

Also, the flash code should be literally, flashes. 2 lights flash twice, stop, then go again, etc. They all mean something, so repost with more info please.

    Looking at past models, you probably have the Jazzy 1115 and those came with a PG Drives Technology Joystick/Controller. These will flash out a code when it senses a fault in the system. Here's the address for the fault codes

    Yours indicates a right motor disconnect and recommends checking the snap-on connections to that motor. A disconnect code can also occur when the motor shoots craps. An open winding would look like a disconnect to the controller and give this fault code. Sometimes the VSI controller will give you a false fault code when motors go out, so I should add that it could be the left motor, and not the right. Disconnecting the motors and swapping the connectors (left motor gets right motor supply connection, etc) and then restarting the chair should show a 2 red bar fault to indicate a left motor(which is actually looking at the same right motor but the computer thinks it is the left because of the switch of connectors)disconnect. If it does, then it is probably the right motor that's bad. If it's under warranty, Pride will replace it, if not, it's about $900.00, but if you got the chair through your insurance, they will pay for all of most of the repair cost. If you didn't, and don't have a thousand bucks lying around, you could try taking it to a reliable motor repair shop. They can test the motor to be sure it's bad, and for anywhere from $100 to $200, fix it good as new.

    These motors rarely fail like this, unless the chair has been driven in conditions not suited for it. The usual suspect is the owner got it stuck in wet grass, mud or sand and tried to drive it out of trouble. This really stresses the motors and leads to early failure. If you get into sloppy terrain, get out of the chair if you can, or seek help from someone to push you out. Good luck.

My jazzy select GT lights blink rapidly 8 times then stops and then repeat wheelchair and I will not move

An 8 bar flash indicates a controller fault. The computer controller is under the front cover of the power wheelchair. Check all the connections here and at the batteries. You may need to replace or have the controller rebuilt. Hope this helps.

Seven blinking LED's indicate a "Joystick Fault" on the controllers Pride uses. Could be just the actual joystick itself, the part you move to make the chair move, or it could be other electronics in the controller. Here's a link to troubleshooting info:

Blinking yellow wrench light on pride jazzy 614 HD

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.

1 red and 3 amber lights flashing after stopping and goes around in circle on a jazzy 1121 powerchair

The number of lights that are blinking indicate what the problem is. Visit this site to locate the type on controller on your power chair and you will be able to see that the blinking lights mean:
Try to reset your manual brake release as this is a common problem.
The powerchair going in circles may indicate a motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
If you continue to have a problem, contact your manufacturer or dealer for service. If your insurance purchased they power chair for you, they may also cover the cost of repairs.

Jazzy 1121 power chair won't go

If your chair is run by a Pilot VSI controller, the error code----3 red/4 yellow/ 1 green---indicates a controller failure. I am having controller problems of a different kind on a Jazzy 1107 and it appears that few shops will work on the controller. Replacement is very costly.

Problem with joystick on Jazzy 1103 ultra

You will need to take it in for repair. 8 bar flash usually means you have a bad joystick/controller. They can sometimes send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired. Find a reputable dealer and relay this info to them.
