    My mom has a Golden Alante she bought 10+ years ago. A few months ago it was not charging because of blown fuse in charger. Last month, she fell and on her way down hit the arm rest w/ joystick. It did bend the arm but still intact. Since then her chair moves very slow (crawls) just like it would run on a low battery. My mom has always plugged her chair in night when she goes to bed since she has owned it. Never had an issue until the fall. The LED lights will indicate a low battery (2 red, 1-2 orange). When plugged into charger both the red light and orange light glow. Within a period of 20-30 mins, the green light will come on. Once unplugged and chair is turned on the LEDs on joystink completely light up, like it would when fully charged. The LEDs do not blink any pattern. The charge still operates sluggish. In less than an hour, 2 hours max, whether chair is has been used and or has moved aprox. 120ft.at the most; the LEDs will once again indicate low battery. My mom has unplugs as soon as the charger light is green. She always turns off the chair when not in motion without fail. I no idea what model the chair is and unable to locate any place it might be placed. The chair was purchased in 98-99. I know it was serviced (pretty sure new batteries) aproximately 5-6 years ago. At 1st I thought there may have been damage from fall. When she fell she caught the joystick, knocking off rubber cover, leaving only metal which tore night gown and made a good size cut across her butt. Vey limited budget, I am physically unable to unassemble chair nor would it be advised I should. Chances are good I may do more harm than good. I have attepted to located manuel online but since I do not know model or exact year it has been difficult. She relies on this chair. Medicare only purchase one. PLEASE ADVISE,

a 7 Flashe code. There is a joystick fault. Make sure the joystick is in the center position and then power off and on again. Check all your couplings. make sure when turning on the unit you only mash the power button for 1 sec. 2-3 sec will put the unit in "Lock out mode".
This ierror will also be present if the joystick is off center when powered up. If you experience these symptoms, you must first make sure there is no physical damage to the joystick preventing it from returning to the center position. Then turn the power off and back on again (making sure the joystick is not depressed in any direction. If the joystick repeats this error, the controler much be replaced. smithrmrm70@hotmail.com

SOURCE: Hello,

It sounds like a battery problem more than anything. If it were a fuse, the chair would not move at all. When batteries are stored, they need to be kept charged by charging every couple of week or so (ideally). There may be other problems causing this, such as a short somewhere or a problem with one of the motors/brakes/electronic componets draining the batteries, but I feel this is unlikely given what you have described. I would have the batteries checked at a dealer with a proper battery tester. Preferably have the charger checked at the same time. We use a specific battery/charger tester in our shop that is connected to a computer and will give a graph of the battery/charger condition. This way there is no arguments as to whether the batteries or charger is faulty. Hope this has helped.

What if the speed LEDs on the VR2/VSI begin to flash?

  • Determine if the battery charger is connected to the power base. When the battery charger is connected to the power base, a charger inhibit feature keeps the power chair from driving. This is indicated by the VR2/VSI speed
    LED(s) flashing.
  • Determine if the charger harness fuse has blown. A blown charger fuse can cause the charger inhibit to
    activate.
  • Determine if all controller connections are plugged into the power base properly. If the 3-pin charger
    inhibit connector is not plugged in properly, then the charger inhibit feature will activate.

Tip

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 uncle left my hoveround chair out in the rain is this the end of my chair? when i plug in the charger the light on the charger lights up green but the chair wont come on


Angel the charger light should only turn green when the chair is fully charged. If you know the chair isn't fully charged then there is a problem with the charging system. if the circuit board in the joystick got wet then that is a serious problem. If you have a voltmeter you can check the battery voltage thru the charging port located under the front of your joystick Set the meter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the charger port. Fully charged you should read 27-30 volts if you aren't getting any reading then the batteries are completly dead or there is a problem with the charging circuit (the reason you are getting a green light on the charger) The joystick will have to be replaced sorry If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay 80% of the repair costs to get your chair working again If they did contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to get it fixed thru Medicare Hope this helps

Have a jet 3 power chair will not take a charge, can't tell that iy is charging


Cathey when you plug in the charger look at the rear of the chair at the meter if the chair is charging then the meter will indicate some amperage reading when it is fully charged the meter will read zero. Also turn on the chair and if the lights are scrolling or flashing it shows that the charger is plugged in. Now if after the meter reads zero (if it ever does) the lights on the joystick should all be lit indicating a full charge. If you aren't getting all the lights and the meter indicated the charger was working then you need to replace the batteries Hope this helps

I have a Invacare Pronto M6 powerchair that is not working. I've charged the batteries with an external charger. The power lite is flashing red once, then green 3 times. Any help would be appreciated. ...


Marilyn Not having worked on many M6 chairs in a long time I would venture that you have a left motor error indicated by the 3 flashes however since you don't have a indication of full power you might have a battery problem because a low battery can cause the chair to flash also. If you can get someone with a digital voltmeter to measure the voltage at the charger port on the joystick it will let you elimitate the batteries as the problem. Place the voltmeter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes in the charger port the reading should be 24-27+ volts if the batteries are fully charged. If you are not getting anything or a very low reading then that could be the problem. Replace both batteries with U1 batteries. After yo replace the batteries and charge them before use then turn the chair on and see if you are getting the smae flashes If you are then I suspect it is the left motor and it will need to be replaced,\. Hope this helps you

When I charge my Jazzy select 6 over night the off board charger lights turn from one red and one green to both green and yet the joystick indicator shows no charge.


I am assuming that the PWC runs and the batteries behave like there is a full charge. The performance of the Jazzy is good. If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage at the charging port but this is too difficult for the average user.
There is a battery display indicator (BDI) on the joystick that indicates battery charge through a series of LED lights. More lights, larger charge and higher voltage on the batteries. There are two reasons why the LEDs are not lit assuming the first two sentences are true:
1. The LEDs or the circuitry running them is burnt out.
2. The LED module has come unplugged from the circuitry.

The solution for both problems is the same. Open up the joystick case( if it is out of warranty )and inspect the LEDs and wiring. The easiest and most expensive way to solve the problem is to replace the joystick assembly. If you do nothing there is a good chance that you will get stuck somewhere because you do not know the charge state of the batteries. If it is under warranty your problems are solved. Call a qualified dealer in your area and have the problem component replaced.
Hope this helps.

I just purchased a used Jet 3 ultra power wheelchair...after charging it up I turn it on and the red light is flashing and it makes like a clicking sound when i try to make it go forward..cand you please...


bobby

The batteries are not charged. The red light indicates low batteries and the clicking sound you hear is the electric brakes being energized. Now the problem could be bad batteries or a bad charger. If you have access to an off-board charger (maybe a friend or acquaintance might have one) plug it into the charger port located under the front of the joystick. Don't plug in the on-board charger at the same time. Charge the chair overnight with the off-board charger and you should see a red light(power) and a green light(if the chairgot fully charged) if the light is still yellow then the batteries are bad and need to be replaced. Your chair uses 2 U1 batteries and if there is a battery store near you get them there. Interstate makes a good battery if you have a dealer near you. Hope this helps Good Luck

My batteries are good but when i turn the chair on all lights come then go out leaving the two red lights flashing


Sonny you say your batteries are good but the error you describe indicates low batteries. If you have a digital voltmeter or can borrow one. set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger plug located under the front of the joystick. Fully charged you should be reading 25-27 volts, if you are reding less than 22 volts then the batteries need charging. Now with the meter still plugged in to the joystick plug in your on-board charger. when it is on and charging you should be reading anywhere from 25-30 volts. If you are not then the charger is not putting our the correct voltage and your batteries aren't getting charged correctly. After a full charge (the yellow light on the charger turns green) you should get 25-27 volts on the meter. If all of the voltages check out then you have another problem that I need more information to venture a solution Hope this helps you

When turning power it makes a clicking sound but does not power up. battery charger has a red and green light on. When plugged in and turned on it flashes 8 times. I checked the power control connection,...


The chair will not move if the charger is plugged in. The flashes are normal with the charger plugged into the chair. The lights on the charger mean that the batteries have been fully charged. Red and yellow lights mean charging. After you unplug the charger from the chair (if off-baord charger, turn charger off or unplug from the wall) then unplug from joystick. after plug is removed from joystick press the on button and all the battery lights should be lit and when you move the joystick forward you will hear the electric bake release and the chair should move forward etc Hope this helps

Upon power up, 3 red LEDs flashing rapidly continously, no power.


The control systems on power mobility equipment have a "prevent" circuit that immobilizes the equipment while it is plugged into a charger, so folks won't take off with it plugged into the wall outlet. When you turn it on when plugged into a charger, the display will flash constantly, or sweep constantly, depending on the manufacturer. This is normal. Your off-board charger should have a red light to indicate power to the charger, and another light for the charge status. Yellowish means it is charging, when it turns green, you are fully charged. If the status light is green all the time, that is an indication that the charger is not functioning properly, or that the batteries are below a chargeable state. Check charger output, which should be 26-28 volts dc, and each battery should show at least a 12 volt reading, but around 13.5 volts with a full charge. If one or both of the batteries drops below 12 volts after a short period of time, it's time for a fresh pair. Fully charge new ones before using the chair.
