PowerChair Error Codes
Most modern Power Wheelchairs (and Scooters)
use a computer controller often hidden under the seat. If anything fails or has
a problem these are often displayed on the controller (joystick) pod via lights
or on screen.
This allows the "tech" guy or you to help
decide where the problems with your powerchair or scooter lie.
Almost all power wheelchairs use one of only a few different
manufacturers control systems.
The bigger two and the most widely used are the Penny and Giles
systems and Dynamic control systems. Although some powerchairs use their own
manufactured control systems.
I will start with the most common systems error codes. In Europe
this seems to be the Penny & Giles systems. Here there are a few P&G
control system models currently available. These are the
Pilot Plus (still available but superseded), VSI, VR2,
and the newest R-Net systems, (R-Net displays fault on screen directly.)
Plus and VSI & VR2 Joystick error flash codes:
1 RED BAR: Low
Battery Voltage The battery is flat (more likely). Or the battery has a bad
connection (which is unlikely)
2 RED BARS: Left Motor
Disconnected The left motor is disconnected. Check all the connections for
physical disconnection or corrosion or burning usually caused by the salt poured
onto the roads every winter.
RED BARS: Left Motor Wiring Trip The left motors wiring has a short
circuit. Check all connections and leads for wear and chafing between the left
motor and the battery cables or chassis
BARS: Right Motor Disconnected The right motor is disconnected. Check
all the connections for physical disconnection or corrosion or burning usually
caused by the salt poured onto the roads every winter.
BARS: Right Motor Wiring Trip The right motors wiring has a short
circuit. Check all connections and leads for wear and chafing between the right
motor and the battery cables or chassis
6 BARS: Activated if you turn on your
wheelchair with an external device like the Charger still connected.
7 BARS: Possible Joystick Trip, Make
sure that the joystick is in the centre position before switching on. If you
still get this when switching on then joystick is probably faulty.
8 BARS: A control system trip. Make
sure that all connections are secure and if so the power module or control pod
is probably faulty. Test by substitution of known good one.
9 BARS: The parking brakes have a bad
connection or have a failed solenoid, or any lever or switches that disconnect
drive for pushing the chair manually may be pulled or switched.
10 BARS: Over voltage detected. This
can happen with a bad battery connection although unlikely. More likely your
battery charger is faulty and is overcharging your batteries quite severely.
1 BAR to 10 BARS and back in a "ripple" every few
seconds. Joystick not cantered when turned on. Switch off and
1 BAR to 6 FLASH every few seconds. System Asleep.
Switch off and back on. Time before sleep can be adjusted or disabled
The programmers can also access many other fault codes additionally. And on
screen on some controllers. if you have this then enter it
Dynamics to be added asap!
