Question about Pride Go Chair Travel Power Chair

1 Answer

Why do the batteries on my Pride Go chair dies out so quickly after a full charge (ie.,both of the lights on my charger have turned green) I weigh about 210 lbs and I put a back pack that weighs about 20lbs. when full. My batteries get down to the yellow button after I have used my chair for about 1/2 hour and have travelled about 1 mile. Thanks for your anticipated help. Nathan Paco

I would check the weight limit on the chair first ,You should be able to see that in your handbook given with the chair.
Second I would see about load testing those battery's ,Go into a auto parts store ,or battery store if in fact you don't own a load tester. make sure both battery's can take a load if not that may be your problem.


Good luck happy to help.

Replaced batteries in Jazzy 600 but they will not charge up.


doug then you could have received a bad battery or you have a charger problem or a charger circuit problem. If the chair comes on then the wiring is ok. when you plug the charger in do you have a green light and a yellow light on the charger? (when fully charged the light goes from yellow to green indicating full charge) If when you plug the charger in and you have a red and green light then there is a problem with the charging citcuit. I would contact your provider where you got the chair to have them check it out for you Hope this helps

It sounds like the batteries have gone bad and need to be replaced.

The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours one day a week) of the gel will solidify. What is probably happening is charger light will either stay green, go to green after a very short time, or the charger will be connected for hours or days and the light never changes indicating a full charge. When you turn on the power chair, nothing happens. The charger may indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud as the gel inside them has oxidized. Since you are the second owner of the scooter, you will need to replace the batteries on your own. Check the owenr's manual for the correct type or contact Pride Mobility at 800-800-8586. Good luck!

Battery discharge quickly, I have replaced new batteries and module control and problem still exist.


Don your charger is probably not charging the batteries. When you charge your chair overnite the charger should have a red and green light showing charge complete. When you first plug it in the lights should be red and yellow. If you are getting a red and green light when you first plug it in then there is a problem with the charger or with the charging circuit to the batteries. You should have a charger port on the battery box try plugging the charger into that port and see if you can get the batteries charged. When you do you should have a red and yellow light on the charger changing to red and green when fully charged. Hope this helps

Will you don't say what chair you have and they can all be wired differently. Look under the shroud that covers your batteries and see if there isn't a wiring diagram there. If you let me know the brand ie: Pride Jazzy, Invacare M51 etc. I can give you the proper wiring for the batteries. Now you also didn't say if you charged the batteries after you installed them. Remember always charge before use. Just because they are new doesn't mean they are charged (in fact they could have sat on the shelf for a while). Make sure that they are no older than 4 months old even new batteries can be bad. Charge these puppies overnite. When you plug in the charger you should see a red and yellow light after charging overnite you should see a red and green light( indicating full charge) If when you plug the charger in you get a red and green light then something isn't wired correctly. Hope this helps

Batteries fully charged. When traveling aprox. 300 feet full speed the batery indicator says the chair is out of power and slows to a crawl. after letting it rest for a few minutes the Indicator says...


Has your power chair been sitting unused for a while? It sounds like your batteries have become damaged and are having problems discharging the power smoothly or may not be taking a full charge.
The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours once a week) or it will solidify. If you attach the charger, what will most likely happen is the green light will either stay green or go to green after a very short time. The charger will indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud. Your warranty will most likely not cover replacment as this is due to customer neglect, but your insurance may still cover the replacement if you can wait for the process to go through. Otherwise, you will need to replace the batteries on your own.
Good luck!

Yep you have a weak or bad battery. Even tho the chair looks new if they didn't take care of the batteries ie: charge regularly then the batteries went bad just sitting. I would check in your area for a battery warehouse or store that can get you 2 new batteries at a reasonable price. If there is an Interstate battery distributor or store near you the get your batteries there. Your Select uses 2 U1 batteries. Check out my tips on charging your batteries once you have the new ones put in. Hope this helps

Wont turn on light just flash back and forth on speed setting


gilly your controller still thinks you are charging the chair. This error is a charger inhibit error which means that when you have the charger plugged in you can't drive the chair. If your charger is not plugged into the chair then you have a problem that needs to looked at by your provider where you got the chair or by a tech Sorry I don't have a quick fix Hope this helps you

No JJR all the plugs need to remain plugged in. On the Pride chairs the light on the charger will only come on green when the batteries are fully charged. When you unplug the controller the charger thinks the batteries are fully charged and the light comes on. Now the problem is the batteries. If they are old or you have a bad battery then the charger never senses a full charge so no green light. Hope this helps
