20 Most Recent NRS Hoveround MPV 5 - Used Power Wheelchair - Page 2 Questions & Answers


We don't work with Pronto's here so I don't have any tech manuals or experience for it, but this may be something as simple as just making sure the brake/clutch lever is fully set. If it is not that, then it is usually something wrong with the clutch or internal brake assembly.

1. Disconnect joystick cable.
2. Remove seat.
3. Undo straps on battery covers.
4. Disconnect batteries.
5. Remove batteries.
MPV 5 requires 2ea 12V, up to 35 ah agm or gel batteries. (The ah will vary depending on the brand of battery used). My personal preference is Werker batteries (12V, 35ah agm) at Batteries Plus. If you can get the chair there, they will install them for you and give you a 1 year warranty which is 6 months longer than most.

Hoveround doesn't publish the manual online. Go to their website and get the contact number to call and request a manual...usually at a fee...they ****. Next time, buy a Pride, Invacare, or whomever has the owners manuals online.

I've never had much luck getting information like this for most joysticks, and have never gotten it for Penny+Giles stuff. You may have the best luck looking for a used replacement joystick on eBay or Craig's List.

Most number tags our near the motor area. You should find a number silver in color , it will be riveted to your chair the first will be a model number the second number will be you serial number. You might have to get some help to get down and look at it. The tag will be marked SS for serial number and MOD for model number. most of the time it will be by the drive motor. I hope it helps.

You will need to remove the seat and the shroud to get inside your chair. Once that is done, you will see the cable coming from the motor and then plugging into the control box. Unplug the cabe and do a visual examination of the connectors. Rarely, but occasionally these will overheat and cause a bad connection.

The power switch is on the joystick. It is a soft switch in the middle top. Usually a green circle with a vertical line . a6b66b14-5113-427d-a65a-19b0d7619de4.gif

The manual for the Pronto starts with this warning:
"A qualified technician MUST perform the initial set up of this wheelchair. Also, a qualified technician MUST perform all procedures in the service manual."

It is possible that a warning is displayed until the setup by technician is successfully completed.

A PDF version of the manual can be downloaded here:

I hope this helps.

The number of lights that are flashing will indicate what the problem is related to.
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. Try resetting your brakes to see if that will help reset the system (makre sure the power chair is turned off first.) If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact Hoveround for an appointment.
Good luck!
