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:
This problem may depend on which main controller your chair has fitted. It should be a Penny & Giles GC controller. US versions should have a GC3 whilst here in the UK, it would be fitted with a GC2. However, the diagnostic flash codes for these two controllers should be the same. The reason im slightly confused is that you say 5 flashes mean your charger is connected at power up, when in fact it should be a Right Motor Wiring Fault. 9 flashes is indeed a Solenoid Brake Fault, or in other words, the wheelchair is in 'Free Wheel' as you have described. Therefore, IF your controller is in fact a Penny & Giles GC, 7 flashes would mean a Joystick fault. There is not much you can do to diagnose this other than checking connections between the Joystick and main controller. If these are OK, it is likely that a new Joystick controller will be required as having these fixed is usually not cost affective. Hope this is of some help to you.
The VSI joystick controller of the Jet 3 with a flash code of 7 LEDs flashing on the battery condition display indicates a possible joystick fault.
The most likely problem is with the joystick gimble. You can also get a 7 bar flash if the joystick is out of the neutral position at start-up.
Run the joystick in a circle and back and forth feeling for any sticky or broken/dead spots. Check to see if the spring and gimble come back to center when you release it. Turn off the VSI and try centering the joystick. Turn the VSI back on and see if you can get the fault to clear.
The only recourse is to have the unit rebuilt or replaced . A rebuilt VSI will run about $500 and a new one about $1600. For this reason it is best to check with your insurance before performing the work to see if its a covered item. Hope this helps
The 9 flash error code indicates a communications fault. The communication fault relates to the communication between the joystick and the control module. The joystick on the arm mount is connected to the control module in the base. When there is a break in the wiring of this wiring harness, also called a bus cable, a fault occurs. This trips the computer and the computer sends out a flash code to the joystick. Simply stated there is a broken or pinched wire between the joystick and controller. Look physically at the wire and check for cuts, breaks or pinches. The best short term repair is to repair the broken wire with solder and heat shrink or tape. You can also use **** splice connectors and tape. The best long term repair is to replace the harness with a part available from Invacare. The most definitive way to diagnose this problem is to read the fault log of the controller using a hand held programmer available to dealers and certified technicians. The number and type of fault codes logged in the controller is another indicator of which
component(s) has failed. Hope this helps.
ceejay a 9 flash error code usually means a brake fault. But a brake fault will not cause the chair not to power up. Check all your connections especially where the cable comes out the back of the joystick and where that same cable plugs into the cable to the controller. Sometimes the switch on the joystick fails to make good contact with the circuit board in the joystick and you can try pushing it in different spots to see if will come on. Also check the circuit breaker to make sure it hasn't tripped. If you have a digital voltmeter you can set it on 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes on the charger port located under the front of the joystick. You should be reading the battery voltage and fully charged get 25-27 volts. If you don't get any reading then there is a problem in the cable or joystick or power from the batteries. You didn't say if Medicare paid for your chair. If they did they will pay for most of the repair costs. If they did you can contact Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have a tech come out to check your chair. Hope this helps you
Sounds like you have an inhibit problem. When you plug the charger into the joystick it keeps the chair from moving while charging. They can retain the inhibit mode because of a problem in the joystick itself. Now if you can count the number of flashes and there is a slight pause between the flashes that indicates a fault in the chair the number of flashes is a fault code and you should be able to look that up in your users manual Hope this helps
upon ignition on the airbag diagnostic module will scan the system for any fault, if there is a fault the airbag indicator will flash. The first set of flash signifies the first digit then a pause the next set of flash for the second digit.Combine these two digits denotes the fault code i.e (two rapid flashes means 2 then a pause followed by three flashes means 3 combine these will read 23 this is the fault code but you need to consult this in the repair manual for ford cars to get the particular fault.Repetitions of 5 sets will occur then steady light on for the airbag.Just replace the instrument cluster and replace the busted bulbs for odometer and turn indicator
First, make sure that the motors are both engaged and not in freewheel, and that the charger is unplugged. If it is a constant flash without pause, this is usually an indication that the joystick is "out of neutral", a problem caused by hitting running the joystick handle under a table, for instance, of moisture in the joystick itself. If it is a series of flashes, like 4, pause repeat, then you have a fault somewhere else in the chair. Here's a link to the flash codes for your controller. http://www.dynamiccontrols.com/index.cfm/3,73,237/dna-flash-codes-0307.pdf The flashes, types and manner of flash need to be better described in your posting. Good luck.
