How do you change batteries on Hoveround?
Remove the black webbing strap over the battery covers by squeezing the plastic pinch clip. Remove the cover carefully so that you do not yank any of the leads. Using a wrench loosen the bolts that attach the leads to the posts, be careful if there is any corrosion that may irritate your skin. Check the fuses to make sure they are still good; if not they are regular automotive fuses that are inexpensive and can be found at any auto parts store. Remove the plastic caps or any packaging from the new battery posts and seat the batteries on the tray, connect the leads to the posts as indicated and tighten with a wrench. Turn the power chair on to make sure the connections are good and that you get power. Replace the covers, and tighten the straps. You may want to use the power chair until the battery is used up before you charge it fully for 8-12 hours; this will ensure that the battery gets FULLY cycled and any buildup inside the battery from it sitting on the shelf in the store is burned out. Make sure that you charge the power chair after a full day's use for 8-12 hours (overnight), not after every trip as overcharging can cause damage. If the power chair in not going to be used for a while, continue to charge the batteries at least one day a week to keep the batteries fluid.

My MVP5 when I'm going
You have a loose connect or a fault component in a circuit board. This is a medical device and should either be covered by the manufacturer or, if too old, you may br eligible for a new unit through your insurance company.
Please contact the manufacturer for a service call. It is not a Do It yourself project. If under warrantee, you can run into issues with invalidating warrantee or if your insurance company is still paying a lease on it (as durable medical equipment) you can run into problems with them by trying to Do it yourself.
Finally, if you do open it up and work on it yourself, the manufacturer has very little liability if it suddenly turns left and throws you down a set of stairs. leave it to the pros and let them document the repairs and work it through the insurance system as appropriate.
