A few things to consider: 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.

SOURCE: Jet 3 Ultra won't charge

Indeed, you need to find a repair shop. Try a google search for power chair repair, or ask your local hospital or if you can find one a power chair store. Most likely, you have a mechanical failure of the wiring, the battery themselves, or corrosion on the battery posts. Since the chair lights up when the charger is in, it is unlikely that the charger is broken. You may have a failure of the controller board, but that is also unlikely. And batteries do not usually suddenly fail completely; they typically fail slowly, losing the ability to completely charge.

I assume that you did not see a great deal of fluid leaking out of the battery container; you might look in the container and check to see if a battery is cracked or missing fluid.

SOURCE: new battries won't charge.

Sounds like the batteries are completely dead, you'll probably need to replace them, sometimes you can only use batteries until they die, and that goes for Wheelchair Batteries too. If they won't charge or keep a charge then they are dead.

If you have access to a voltmeter,put it on your battery then plug in the charger; if the voltage rises that will tell you that your charger is working.

SOURCE: My chair is not charging. We are getting 34 volts

Hi. A voltage of 34 volts is way to high. Most chargers are limited to about 28.5 volts. You will quickly dry out your batteries at 34 volts. I would say your charger is very faulty.
You have probably already destroyed your batteries at that charge rate.
Are the batteries new or a couple of years old.
I serviced a machine last year, that, according to the owner, had been through 6 sets of batteries in 4 years. His charger had the same problem as yours.
Good luck. Neil.

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.

Just replaced batteries and unit is operating good since i installed the battteries and i try to put on charger it says it is in the charge inhibit mode that is according to the flashing lights what does...


All that eans is that when you are charging the batteries you are unable to drive the chair. Its a safety feature to ensure that you won't accidently make the chair move with the charger plugged in. Just plug the charger into the charger port turn off the chair and then plug the charger into the wall charge overnight and in the morning unplug the charger from the wall and then from the joystick. Always have the charger off when plugging ang unplugging from the chair. With the M41 charger get a power strip with an on/off switch plug the charger into the strip and use the on/off switch to turn the charger on and off before you plug it into the chair Hope this helps you

Sounds like the inhibit function of the chair has been damaged. This function will not let you move the chair while charging. If Dad doesn't have the charger off when plugging in to the chair or removing it it can short out the charger port causing your problem. Unfortunately the only fix is to replace the joystick/controller. If Medicare paid for Dad's chair then they will pay for most of the repair costs. Contact the provider that brought Dad's chair and ask if they can order a new joystick for you Hope this helps

the batteries are not charged and need to be replaced. The reason you have lights is because the charger is supplying power to the chair and the chair will not move when the charger is plugged in because of the inhibit function. Replace the batteries and make sure you charge before use Hope this helps

Lite Blinks continusleyon control ,chair will not move


I am assuming you have a Jet 7 with a VSI controller (manufactured by Penny and Giles) with a steady flash of all the speed and profile LEDs (lights). This is a no drive away feature of the VSI if the charger is plugged in. The older Penny and Giles controllers indicate the same flash code.

If you have an on- board charger check to see if it is plugged into the wall. If it is, unplug it and see if the chair runs. Sometimes, you have to remove the back cover and unplug the charger haress at the output of the charger inside the electronics housing (much more difficult). A failed on-board charger can inhibit the VSI controller (no drive away) even if it unplugged from the wall outlet. There is also a charger inhibit harness with a fuse that might have failed. A qualified technician can jumper this harness to bypass and test.

If you have an off-board charger unplug it from the wall or unplug it from the charging port in the front of the VSI. If the chair runs in either case you have a bad charger.

You may also have a bad VSI controller which can be rebuilt or replaced. Start with the basic charger unplug tests and then work your way to the VSI controller. Hope this helps.

When I plug it in to charge the red and amber lights stay lit and the green flashes and if i move the joystick everything is backwards push forward goes backwards left is right. b4 when it was plugged in...


sounds like a charger inhibit problem. Whenever you charge your chair the charger inhibit shuts down the chair so it can't be moved while charging. If you are getting this then that function is not working. Lets try this if you know of someone who has a chair or scooter with an off-board charger see if you can borrow it. Plug the off-board charger into the charger port located under the front of the joystick (don't have the on-board charger plugged in) and then turn the charger on. turn the chair's power on and you hopefully will see the lights blinking again indicating a charger plugged in (charger inhibit) the lights on the charger should be red and yellow (yellow turning green when fully charged) If you still get the problem with the off-board charger then your problem is in the controller or power module and this requires a new one. If Medicare paid for your chair you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-81-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have them fix it for you and bill Medicare for most of the repair costs. Hope this helps you

When i plug in the charger the led light stays on green but on the joystick the lights are moving back and forth as if it is charging but wheelchair does not move


Joy When you plug in the charger the lights on the joystick will scroll because of something called charger inhibit which disables the joystick when charging It is a safety feature. Now when you disconnect the charger turn off the chair and then turn it back on you should then get all the battery lights indicating the charge level If fully charged all the lights will be lit. If after you unplug the charger and you still get the scrolling lights then you have a problem with the charger inhibit function in the joystick and it will have to be replaced. Hope this helps you

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

Pride Jet 2 power chair with with 3 red and 3 yellow lights flashing. Batteries checked ok under load, all connections have been checked. I moved the chair and it would not move again. Just that quick.


Hi. The fault code you have is called the "Inhibit active".
It can be caused by a blown charger fuse, which causes the charger inhibit to activate.
Also if the 3-pin charger inhibit connector is not plugged in properly, or the connector is faulty, then the charger inhibit feature will activate.
Hope this helps. Neil.
