Jazzy select gt. batteries are good charger is new when charging the lights go from red to green and repeats, but if i hold the button one red one yellow ? i tested the batteries they are full but joy...

Still your batteries are bad. Had this problem before. If the batteries are more than 1 to 2 years old they need to be replaced. The charger only tells you it can't charge anymore, because the battery is sulfated. The meter on the chair is telling you the batteries are not strong enough to run the chair.

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last

Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

My chair has been sitting for 4 months in garage. Chair MPV5 was rarely used. When charging, battery charger indicator shows green light. Chair still does not turn on. What should I be doing?

Replace the batteries and charge before use then charge nightly for 20 days Use the chair daily so you can get a good charge nightly to get the batteries operating at 100% After the 20 days If you don't use the chair daily always store fully charged and then charge once a week overnight. Should work fine once you get the new batteries in You will need to get 2 U1 batteries for your chair do not get Wally World or automotive batteries You must replace with sealed deep cycle batteries made for power chairs Hope this helps

Chair does not travel as far as before on a full charge

John usually the cause is that the batteries are getting weaker and need to be checked and replaced if needed The batteries will last about 2-3 years if charged correctly. But you can develop a battery that has become weaker and this affects the other battery as well. So you have to replace both batteries I have seen new batteries last only 3-6 months because of a bad battery New doesn't neccessarily good A tech should perform a load test on your batteries to determine if they need replacing Hope this helps you

I need to know how to charge a power wheelchair plse

You will need to connect the charger that was issued with the power chair to a working electrical outlet (do not use an extension cord or power bar/strip), turn it on and connect the other end to the power chairs' charging receptacle. Keep it connected for 8-12 hours or until the light on the charger indicates the batteries are charged.
If the charger indicates the batteries are charged but the charge does not last more than 1-2 hours, they batteries may have gone bad, are worn out and need to be replaced.
Good luck!

2 red blinking lights on control

Hi. Why do you have two different sized batteries? When you charge them, they will not charge up evenly. You say it ran for two days, did you charge it each night or after the two days running? Batteries last the best if they are charged overnight after each days running. The two flashing lights might be a fault code. Can you tell us what controller is in the machine, we can look up the fault codes. Why was the left hand motor rebuilt? In power chairs and mobility scooters the motors develope a build up of carbon dust and copper bust from the brushes and commutator. This build-up causes a leakage of power from the wiring in the motor to the frame of the motor. If this happens it is possible to get a short developing between the two motors, which causes the controller to go into a fault mode.Good luck. Neil.
