Question about Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair

1 Answer

When I turn on my chair all that comes on is the top warning light that blinks on and off. The only thing that will work is the horn. It has now power to the joy stick. What could be the problem?

SOURCE: power chair lights

The problem was a bad joystick. A local company came out to replace it and it works fine now.

SOURCE: All six lights blink on my Jet 3

I just had the same problem with my uncle's power chair. The number of "blinks" indicates a problem code to the technicians. My chair needed the joystick control assembly replaced. Once replaced, evrything was back to normal. 'Not a cheap fix but much needed. Good luck my friend!!

SOURCE: The lights blink but it want move when you pwer

The chair is in lock mode. To unlock, turn on, when the lights start to scroll, push the joystick forward and keep it there until you hear the beep. When it beeps, pull it back and wait for the beep, once the beep sounds let go and listen, if you hear a high pitch beep, success. If it doesn't work the first time, just do it again. Sometimes it may not work right away but don't panic, just follow the steps again.

SOURCE: no power to motors joy stick does not woirk

Hi. If you count how many lights were flashing and let us know then I can look up that fault code and tell you what it is. Do you have the free-wheel levers in the correct place? Check the motor and battery connectors. How old is the machine, are the motors or brakes faulty. The machine will not operate if the charger is still connected. Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: Lights blinking when power is

RB Are the lights giving you a flash code ie: 4 flashes pause four flashes etc or are they all flashing with no pattern? Make sure the chairs freewheel levers are in the drive position then turn it back on to see if they still flash. If the lights are scrolling from right to left then the joystick is in lockout mode. let me know what you find and maybe we can figure this out. Hope this helps you

Cant charge it Lights keep blinking and the only thing that works is the horn.


Before charging, make sure the unit is turned off. Connect the charger to the wall outlet first and then to the chair. Check that the battery cables are attached fully to the control box. Turn on charger. After charging, remove charger and verify the unit is fully in gear. The levers must be fully in the up position. If the lights still flash, some wiring is probably loose, or the drives are not fully engaged.

What does 3 blinking wrench lights mean?


It is indicating a left motor fault, which is not good news. This is usually from a motor overheating and burning out, usually from overloading the chair or from driving it on unstable terrain like mud, snow, wet grass or sand. If that is the case, there could be more damage to the electronics once you get the motor replaced too. Replacing the motor is a lot of work and very expensive, so you may want to try to find a replacement chair.

When i plug the cable into the joystick control (MK5SOJ+) all the lights around the horn button blink on and off motor wont engage and it won't shut off til pull out the cable do i need a


Hello,

When you say the power cable I hope you mean the cable that comes from the main control module under the chair. I want to make sure you are not talking about the AC power cable that plugs from the chair to a wall outlet. So if we are on the same page about the cable is the one going from the joystick to the main control module under the chair and all you do is plug it in and the green speed lights start to blink this would indicate the joystick is bad.

Not sure witch jazzy chair i got but the joy stick blink and keeps blinking i have tried pushing horn button twice and also turning it on and pushing joy stick forward waiting for it to beep but no beep....


The jazzy probably has a VSI controller and if it is sleep mode then the lights will scroll rather than blink. Now turn on the chair and see if the blinks have a pause between them, ie 4 blinks pause 4 blinks pause etc If they do count the number of blinks and this will give you the error code ie 4 blinks right motor 3 blinks left motor your owners manual should have a chart listing the error codes If not you can contact Pride tech support @ 1-800-800-8586 ask for jazzy tech support

Hope this helps

LOCKING/UNLOCKING THE VSI

The VSI has a feature that enables you to lock your power chair to prevent

unauthorized use.

To lock the VSI:

1. With the VSI powered on, press and hold the on/off key. After one (1)

second, the VSI should beep.

2. Release the on/off key.

3. Push the joystick to the full forward position until the VSI beeps.

4. Pull the joystick to the full rearward position until the VSI beeps.

5. Release the joystick. There should be a long beep.

6. The VSI is now locked.

To unlock the VSI:

1. Press the on/off key and power on the VSI. The maximum speed/profile
indicator should ripple side to side.

Good Luck

The chair won't power on and the batteries won't charge. I know the charger works because I have tried it on another chair. When I plug the charger into the chair the light stays green and nothing...


After you changed the batteries, did the power chair sit unused for several weeks? It sounds more like a battery or fuse issue than a charger issue. If there are blinking lights when you try to turn the power chair on (not while attached to the charger), or it comes on then goes back off by itself quickly, there may be something else going on.
1- The green light on the charger is telling you that the batteries are not accepting any more power, either they are fully charged or they have oxidized/gone solid from sitting without being put on the charger for too long.
2-The scrolling lights on the controller when the charger is plugged in just confirms that the chair is connected to the charger, so it sounds like everything is connected properly and working. The horn will work fine when it is attached to the charger as it is getting power from the wall outlet.
3- If it was a fuse issue, the lights would not come on at all when the charger is NOT attached, even after the battery has been fully charged, which is what it sounds like is going on. The fuses can blow if you operate the chair on a slick surface or one of the drive tires spin out. The batteries will be fully charged but because the circuit is not complete, the chair will not power on.

I recommend checking the fuses and changing them if necessary. You are in luck because this is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix as they are standard automotive fuses found at any auto parts store or even Walmart for around $2 each (you need 2). The fuses are located inside the gray battery covers under the seat, attached to the leads connected to the battery cables. The straps holding the covers on the batteries are tight, you may want to use a flat head screwdriver to help release the clips. While you are down there, inspect the tread on the tires, if it is worn or slick it may need to be replaced for safety.
I hope this information is helpful to you- good luck!

WHEN I TURN THE POWER ON FOR MY JT3 ULTRA POWER CHAIR, THE LIGHTS THAT INDICATE THE STATUS OF BATTERY BLINK ON AND OFF (REGARDLESS OF BEING FULLY CHARGED OR NOT) AND THE CHAIR WILL NOT MOVE. SOMETIMES,...


I would replace the batteries with new ones anyway to make sure that you are getting full power and if the problem stops great if it continues then you have eliminated one possible problem. A low battery will cause the problem and these chairs diagnose themselves with the controller giving you flash codes to indicate a problem. I would just check for a loose connection in the wiring when you have the seat off changing the batteries and give the base a good cleaning( without water) (Use those cleaning wipes from dollar store) Hope this helps you
