SAFETY
WARNING! Do not operate your new power chair for the first time without completely reading and
understanding this owner’s manual.
Your power chair is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an extensive
variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the power chair user. Please be aware that the final selection and
purchasing decision regarding the type of power chair to be used is the responsibility of the power chair user, who is
capable of making such a decision, and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the power chair
to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Pride provider in the instruction
process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the power chair user will need to practice operating
the power chair in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family member or care
professional specially trained in assisting a power chair user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your power chair during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you will need
some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver through doorways,
on and off of elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to operating
the power chair safely.
Modifications
Pride has designed and engineered your power chair to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of accessories
is available from your authorized Pride provider to further customize your power chair to better suit your needs and/or
preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any feature, part, or function
of your power chair.
WARNING! Do not modify your power chair in any way not authorized by Pride. Unauthorized
modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your power chair.
Pre-Ride Safety Check
Get to know the feel of your power chair and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check before
each use to make sure your power chair operates smoothly and safely. See IX. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your power chair:
n Check for proper tire inflation. Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all controller connections to the electronics tray. Make sure they are secured properly.
n Check the brakes. See IX. “Care and Maintenance.”
n Check battery charge. See VII. “Batteries and Charging.”
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride provider for assistance.

SAFETY
Weight Limitations
Your power chair is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal injury
and/or damage to your power chair. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property
damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your power chair. Carrying passengers on your power
chair may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
Tire Inflation
If your power chair is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least once a
week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of your power
chair.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at all
times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and
overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in pneumatic tires at all
times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal injury and/or damage to
your Jazzy.
WARNING! Inflate your power chair drive tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a
burst tire and/or personal injury.
Incline Information
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access. Some ramps
may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on your power chair.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the power
chair’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any
railing corners.
n When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure
a safely controlled descent. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and then accelerate
cautiously. When driving down an incline, set your power chair to the slowest setting and drive in the forward direction
only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a
complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.

II.
SAFETY
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the incline.
Drive your power chair straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall.
Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas covered
with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the power chair in freewheel
mode while seated on it or standing next to it. Doing so may result in personal injury and/or
damage to your power chair.
WARNING! Never travel down an incline backwards. This may result in personal injury.
WARNING! Even though your power chair is capable of climbing slopes greater than those illustrated in
figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other specifications
presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your power chair, resulting in personal injury
and/or damage to your power chair.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, all handicap public access ramps are required to have a
maximum slope of 5°. Therefore, Pride recommends that the maximum slope of an incline you attempt to safely ascend or
descend on your power chair does not exceed 5°. See figure 1.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than 5° may put your power chair in
an unstable position and cause it to tip, resulting in personal injury.
Braking Information
Your power chair is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
1. Regenerative — uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the joystick returns to the center/stop position.
2. Disc Park Brake — activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.
Figure 1. Maximum Safe Angle (Ascending and Descending)
Cornering Information
While your power chair is equipped with rear caster wheels in back and anti-tip wheels in front, excessively high cornering
speeds can still create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not limited to:
cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an
area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high
speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you
may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your power
chair from tipping.

II.
SAFETY
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. This greatly reduces the possibility of a
tip or fall. To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, always exercise common sense when
cornering.
Outdoor Driving Surfaces
Your power chair is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces composed
of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface
types. For this reason, your power chair is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to
use your power chair safely on lawns and in park areas.
n Reduce your power chair’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
n Avoid tall grass that can entangle the running gear.
n Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
n If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
Freewheel Mode
Your power chair is equipped with a manual freewheel lever to allow for manual maneuverability by a trained attendant.
For more information about how to place your power chair into and out of freewheel mode, see IV. “The Jazzy 1133.”
WARNING! Do not use your power chair in freewheel mode without an attendant present. Personal
injury may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to personally place your power chair in freewheel mode while seated
on it. Personal injury may result. Ask an attendant for assistance if necessary.
WARNING! Do not place your power chair in freewheel mode while on an incline. The chair could
roll uncontrollably on its own, causing personal injury.
Stationary Obstacles (Steps, Curbs, etc.)
Proceed with extreme caution when driving near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (curbs, porches,
stairs, etc.). The correct method for approaching a curb is illustrated in figure 2.

II.
SAFETY
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair climb or descend an obstacle that is higher
than two inches unless you have the assistance of an attendant.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair proceed backward down any step, curb, or
other obstacle. This may cause the power chair to tip and cause personal injury.
Public Streets and Roadways
WARNING! You should not operate your power chair on public streets and roadways. Be aware
that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your power chair. Obey all
local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with extreme
caution.
Stairs and Escalators
Power chairs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Never use your power chair to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause injury to
yourself and to others and/or damage your power chair.
Doors
n Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
n Drive your power chair gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your power chair gently
and slowly backward to pull the door open.
Elevators
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the elevator door(s).
n If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or
allow the rubber door edge to contact the power chair and the door will reopen.
n Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or power chair accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
EMI & RFI
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause unintended motion of electric mobility vehicles. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). When EM adversely
affects the operation of an electronic device, it is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). For more information, see III. “EMI/RFI.”
Lift/Elevation Products
If you will be traveling with your power chair, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth by the
manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
Motor Vehicle Transport
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a person
while seated in a power chair.

SAFETY
Transfers
Transferring onto and off of your power chair requires a good sense of balance. Always have an attendant or healthcare
professional present while learning to properly transfer yourself.
To eliminate the possibility of injury, Pride recommends that you or a trained attendant perform the following tasks before
attempting a transfer:
n Turn the power off. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Ensure your power chair is not in freewheel mode. See IV. “The Jazzy 1133.”
n Turn both caster wheels toward the transfer destination to improve power chair stability during transfer.
n Make sure both armrests are flipped up or removed from your power chair.
n Flip the footrest up, or move the leg rests aside; this will help to keep your feet from getting caught on the
footrest or the leg rests during the transfer.
n Reduce the distance between your power chair and the object you are transferring onto.
WARNING! Before transferring, position yourself as far back as possible in the power chair seat
to prevent the power chair from tipping forward during transfer and causing injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause the power
chair to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the footrest. Such use may cause the power chair
to tip and cause personal injury.
Positioning Belts
Your authorized Pride provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your power chair safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your power chair, make sure it is
fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the power chair.
WARNING! The positioning belt is not designed for use as a seat belt in a motor vehicle. Nor is
your Jazzy suitable for use as a seat in any vehicle. Anyone traveling in a vehicle should be
properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle manufacturer.
WARNING! Do not sit on your power chair while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury and/or
property damage may result.
WARNING! Always be sure your power chair and its batteries are properly secured when it is being
transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your power chair.
Inclement Weather Precautions
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not operate your power chair in icy or slippery conditions
or on salted surfaces (i.e., walks or roads). Such use may adversely affect the performance and
safety of your power chair, resulting in an accident and personal injury.
WARNING! Do not expose your power chair to any type of moisture at any time (rain, snow, mist,
or wash). Such exposure can damage your power chair. Never operate your power chair if it has
been exposed to moisture until it has dried thoroughly.

II.
SAFETY
Reaching and Bending
Never reach, lean, or bend while driving your power chair. If it is absolutely necessary to reach, lean, or bend while seated
on your power chair, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the power chair from tipping. Pride
recommends that the power chair user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending and reaching in the
presence of a qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the floor by reaching
down between your knees. Movements such as these may change your center of gravity and the weight
distribution of the power chair. This may cause your power chair to tip, possibly resulting in personal injury.
Keep your hands away from the tires when driving.
Batteries
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information. For more
information about your power chair’s batteries, see VII. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! Power chair batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are unable to lift that much
weight, be sure to get help. Lifting beyond your capacity can result in personal injury.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wash
hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery. Charging a frozen
battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
Preventing Unintended movement
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period of time, turn off
the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent joystick contact. This will also eliminate
the possibility of unintended chair movement from electromagnetic (EM) sources. Failure to do so may
result in personal injury.
Prescription Drugs/Physical Limitations
Users must exercise care and common sense when operating a power chair. This includes awareness of safety issues when
taking prescribed or over-the-counter drugs or when the user has specific physical limitations.
WARNING! Consult your physician if you are taking prescribed or over-the-counter medication or if you
have certain physical limitations. Some medications and limitations may impair your ability to operate your
power chair in a safe manner.
Alcohol
The power chair user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her power chair. This includes awareness
of safety issues while under the influence of alcohol.
WARNING! Do not operate your power chair while you are under the influence of alcohol, as this may impair
your ability to operate your power chair in a safe manner.
Removable Parts
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move a power chair by any of its removable parts. Personal injury and/
or damage to the power chair may result.

III.
EMI/RFI
EMI/RFI
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause
unintended motion of power chairs. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy. When this energy adversely
affects the operation of an electronic device, it is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency
Interference (RFI).
WARNING! Radio waves may interfere with the control of power chairs.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
The following FAQs summarize what you should know about EMI/RFI. Use this information to minimize the risk
that EMI/RFI will affect your power chair.
Where do radio waves come from?
Radio waves are emitted from the antennas of cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies),
radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave sources, and
paging transmitters. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy. Because electromagnetic energy is more
intense closer to the transmitting antenna (source of emission), the electromagnetic energy fields from two-way
radios are of special concern to power chair users.
If my power chair is affected by EMI/RFI, what kind of motion should I expect?
This is hard to predict. It would depend on a number of factors:
n Strength of the radio waves
n Construction of the power chair
n Position of the power chair (whether it is on level ground or on an incline)
n Whether or not the power chair is in motion
An affected power chair’s movement can be erratic. It may move by itself or come to a sudden stop. Furthermore,
it is possible for EMI/RFI to unexpectedly release the brakes on a power chair. Some intense sources of EMI/RFI
can even damage the control system of the Jazzy.
Is there any way to know for sure whether radio waves are responsible for the unintended motion of my
power chair?
Unfortunately, interference from radio wave sources may be difficult to recognize, since the signals from these
sources are invisible and may be intermittent. However, the FDA recommends that you report all incidents of
unintended motion or brake release to the power chair manufacturer and, if possible, note whether there was a radio
wave source nearby at the time of the incident.
Has anyone been hurt from erratic, unintended motion of power chairs?
The FDA has reports of injuries that resulted from the apparent uncontrolled motion of power chairs. However, it
is unclear how many of these incidents were actually caused by radio wave interference.
Jazzy 1133 Owner’s Manual Rev B 03-03
www.pridemobility.com
13
III.
EMI/RFI
Are all power chairs susceptible to EMI/RFI?
Each make and model of chair differs in its ability to resist electromagnetic interference. That is, each has a particular level of “immunity” to interference, measured in volts per meter (V/m). A higher immunity level offers greater
protection. In other words, a power chair with a high immunity level is less likely to be affected by a strong radio
source than one with a low immunity level.
What is the FDA doing about the problem?
The FDA has written to the manufacturers of power chairs and requested that they test their new products to be sure
that they provide a reasonable degree of immunity against EMI/RFI. The letter states that power chairs should have
an immunity of at least 20 V/m. This provides a reasonable degree of protection against the common sources of
EMI/RFI.
The FDA has also requested that these manufacturers clearly label their products with the immunity level, or state
that the immunity level is not known. The labeling and informational material supplied with the power chair must
explain what the immunity level means, and the labeling or informational material must warn users about the
possibility of EMI/RFI and how to avoid it. In addition, the FDA has recommended that manufacturers establish an
educational program to inform users of power chairs, and their caregivers, about the problems associated with
EMI/RFI, and the actions they can take to minimize the risk.
What can I do to find out if my power chair is likely to be affected by EMI/RFI?
If you’ve had your power chair for a long time and haven’t experienced any unintended motion, it is not likely that
you will have problems in the future. But it is always possible that problems could arise if you are close to a source
of radio waves. Therefore, it is very important to be alert to this possibility. The Jazzy meets or exceeds an immunity level of at least 20 V/m.
What can I do to reduce the risk that my power chair could be affected by EMI/RFI?
Here are some precautions you can take:
n Do not turn on or use hand-held personal communications devices, such as citizens band (CB) radios and
cellular phones, while the power chair is on.
n Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and hand-held or mobile two-way radios, and
try not to come close to them. For example, if you are in a power chair with an immunity level of 20 V/m, you
should remain at least three feet from a hand-held two-way radio and ten feet from a mobile two-way radio.
n Be aware that adding accessories and/or components, or modifying the power chair may make it more susceptible to interference from radio wave sources. There is no easy way to evaluate their effect upon the overall
immunity of the power chair.
What should I do if my power chair moves unexpectedly?
If unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn the power chair off as soon as it is safe to do so. Call Pride at
800-424-8205 to report the incident.

BACK BATTERY BOX
The Power Base Assembly
The power base assembly consists of the right and left frame assemblies, the front and back battery boxes, and the
seat bars. See figures 4, 5, and 6. The battery boxes provide connectivity for the controller, the onboard battery
charger, and the batteries. The front battery box contains the onboard charger, the ammeter, the onboard charger AC
power cord receptacle, and the main circuit breaker. The back battery box contains the controller connector and the
charger inhibit connector.
Ammeter: The ammeter displays the charger’s current output in amps. See VII. “Batteries and Charging.”
Onboard Charger AC Power Cord Receptacle: This is where the AC power cord plugs into the onboard charger.
The AC power cord plugs into a standard wall outlet.
Charger Fuse(s): The charger fuse protects the ammeter from overload during charging. A spare fuse is included.
Main Circuit Breaker: The main circuit breaker is a safety feature built into your power chair. When the batteries
and the motors are heavily strained (e.g., from excessive loads), the main circuit breaker trips to prevent damage to
the motors and the electronics. If the circuit breaker trips, allow your power chair to “rest” for approximately one
minute. Then push in the circuit breaker reset button, turn on the controller, and continue normal operation. If the
main circuit breaker trips repeatedly, contact your authorized Pride provider.
Controller Connector: This is where the controller connects to the battery, the motors, and the motor brakes. The
standard controller connector is shown.
Charger Inhibit Connector: The controller is equipped with a charger inhibit. The charger inhibit enables the
onboard battery charger to disable the controller during charging. The charger inhibit connector is coded with
colored dots. The dots are positioned so that you can align the flat side of the male connector with the flat side of
the female connector before making the connection.
CAUTION! Failure to properly align the connectors can result in damage to the controller, the
onboard charger, and the connectors.

Manual Freewheel Levers
For your convenience, your power chair is equipped with two manual freewheel levers - one for each motor/brake
assembly. See figure 7. These levers allow you to disengage the drive motors and maneuver the chair manually.
WARNING! Do not use your power chair while the drive motors are disengaged unless you are in
the presence of an attendant! Do not disengage the drive motors when your power chair is on an
incline. The chair could roll down on its own, causing injury!
To engage or disengage the drive motor:
1. Pull the manual freewheel lever up to engage the drive motor.
2. Push the manual freewheel lever down to disengage the drive motor.
CAUTION! It is important to remember that when your power chair is in freewheel mode, the

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Your power chair uses two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. These batteries are sealed and maintenance
free. Since they are sealed, there is no need to check the electrolyte (fluid) level. Deep-cycle batteries are designed
to handle a longer and deeper discharge. Though they are similar in appearance to automotive batteries, they are not
interchangeable. Automotive batteries are not designed to handle a long, deep discharge, and also are unsafe for use
in power chairs.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
Charging the Batteries
The battery charger is essential in providing long life for your power chair’s batteries. It is designed to optimize
your power chair’s performance by charging the batteries safely, quickly, and easily. The standard battery charger is
the onboard charger. The onboard charging system consists of the charger, the ammeter, the AC power cord, and the
charger fuse. These components are all located on or in the front battery box. See figure 5. The ammeter indicates
the rate of charge necessary to fully recharge the batteries. It is also a good indication of whether or not the charger
is working. The ammeter and the charger are only functional when the charger power cord is plugged into a wall
outlet using the AC power cord. The charger fuse protects the ammeter from overload during charging. For battery
replacement instructions, see IX. “Care and Maintenance.”
WARNING! You must recharge your power chair’s batteries with the supplied onboard or the optional
off-board charging system. Do not use an automotive-type battery charger.
WARNING! Never use an extension cord to plug in your battery charger. Plug the charger directly into a
properly wired standard wall outlet.
To charge the batteries using the onboard charger:
1. Position the rear of your power chair close to a standard wall outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the freewheel levers are in the engaged position. See IV.
“The Jazzy 1133.”
3. Extend the charger AC power cord and plug it into the wall outlet. If your power chair uses a separate AC
power cord, plug it into the onboard AC power cord receptacle first. Your power incorporates an inhibit
function that disables the power chair when the charger is plugged into a wall outlet. This should be indicated
on the controller. See VIII. “Operation.”
4. Wait about a minute for the charger to warm up and check the ammeter. The ammeter indicates how much
charge is needed to fully charge the batteries. The ammeter may move as high as 5.5 amps, then gradually
move back down to 0 amps as the batteries charge.
5. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle
slowly drops to 0. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on or about the 0 mark on the
ammeter.
6. When your power chair’s batteries are fully charged, wind up the charger AC power cord using the hook
and loop strap and place the cord back into the power chair’s electronics tray. If your AC power cord plugs
into the onboard AC power cord receptacle as well, then roll it up and store it in a safe place.

To charge the batteries using the off-board charger:
NOTE: There are two types of off-board chargers. One is the type that plugs into the controller. If your charger
plugs into the controller, then follow the instructions on the charger. The other is the type that plugs into the
front battery box. If your off-board charger plugs into the front battery box, follow the instructions below. If you
are not sure how to use your off-board charger, contact your authorized Pride provider.

Plug the off-board charger into the wall outlet.
Wait about a minute for the charger to warm up and check the ammeter. The ammeter indicates how much
charge is needed to fully charge the batteries. The ammeter may move as high as 5.5 amps, then gradually
move back down to 0 amps as the batteries charge.
7. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle
slowly drops to 0. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on or about the 0 mark on the
ammeter.
8. When your power chair’s batteries are fully charged, disconnect the charger AC power cord from the wall outlet.
9. Disconnect the charger from the front battery box.
10. Reinstall the run plug into the charger inhibit connector.
Battery Break-in
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide a battery that best suits your power chair’s specific
demands. Fresh batteries arrive regularly at Pride and are promptly shipped with a full charge. During shipping, the
batteries encounter temperature extremes that may influence initial performance. Heat robs the charge from the
battery, and cold slows the power available and extends the time needed to recharge the battery (just as with a car
battery).
It might take a few days for the temperature of the battery to stabilize and adjust to its new ambient temperature.
More importantly, it will take a few “charging cycles” (a partial drain— then a full recharge) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to the battery’s peak performance and long life. It will be well worth it to take the
time to break in your battery properly.
NOTE: The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.
To break in new batteries for maximum efficiency:
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This brings the battery up to about 90% of its peak
performance level.
2. Operate your power chair throughout the house and yard. Move slowly at first, and don’t stray too far until
you become accustomed to the controls and break in the batteries.
3. Give the batteries another full charge of 8 to 14 hours and operate your power chair again. The batteries will
now perform at over 90% of their potential.
4. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries will top off at 100% charge and last for an extended period.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
The battery charger takes the standard wall outlet voltage of 120 VAC (alternating current) and converts it to 24 VDC
(direct current). The power chair batteries use direct current to run your power chair. When the battery voltage is low, the
charger works harder to charge the battery. This is why the ammeter initially reads five or more amps. As the battery
voltage approaches full charge, the charger doesn’t work as hard to complete the charging cycle. This explains why the
ammeter drops as it approaches a full charge. When the battery is fully charged, the amperage from the charger is nearly at
zero. This is how the charger maintains a charge but does not overcharge the battery.
Can I use a different battery charger?
You should use the charger supplied with the power chair. It is the safest, most efficient tool to charge the batteries.
We do not recommend using other types of chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger). Your power chair’s
charger will not operate after the batteries have been discharged to nearly zero voltage. If this happens, call your
authorized Pride provider for assistance.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Many factors come into play when deciding how often to charge the batteries. You may use your power chair all day
on a daily basis or you may not use it for weeks at a time.
n Daily Use
If you use your power chair on a daily basis, charge the batteries as soon as you are finished using your
power chair. Your power chair will be ready each morning to give you a full day’s service. It is recommended that you charge the batteries 8 to 14 hours after daily use. Do not charge the batteries for more than
24 hours at a charging cycle.
n Infrequent Use
If you use your power chair infrequently (once a week or less), you should charge the batteries at least once
per week for 12 to 14 hours.
NOTE: Keep your batteries fully charged and avoid deeply discharging your batteries. Do not charge the
batteries for more than 24 hours at a charging cycle.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely do you have an ideal driving situation such as smooth, flat, hard terrain with no wind, hills, or curves. More
often you are presented with hills, sidewalk cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind. All of
these factors will affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining
the maximum range per charge:
n Always charge the batteries fully prior to your trip.
n Plan your trip in advance to avoid inclines if possible.
n Limit baggage weight to essential items.
n Try to maintain an even speed and avoid stop-and-go driving.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
What type of batteries should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deep-cycle
batteries that are similar in performance.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:
BATTERY SPECIFICATIONS
Type:
Deep-cycle (AGM or Gel-Cell)
Size:
NF-22
Voltage:
12V each
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell batteries to
reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a much different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium (nicads),
or in other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain down their
charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge. Lead-acid batteries should be charged as often as possible. They do
not have a “memory” like nickel-cadmium batteries.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
A fully charged deep-cycle battery will provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your power
chair’s batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently
charged, or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable power chair operation
and limited battery life.
How should I store my power chair and its batteries?
If you do not use your power chair regularly, we recommend maintaining battery vitality by charging the batteries
at least once per week.
If you do not plan on using your power chair for an extended period, fully charge the batteries prior to storage.
Disconnect the battery harnesses and store the power chair in a warm, dry environment. Avoid temperature extremes, such as freezing and excessively hot conditions, and never attempt to charge a frozen battery. A cold or
frozen battery should be warmed for several days prior to recharging.
What about public transportation?
Gel-Cell and AGM batteries are designed for application in power chairs and other mobility vehicles. These batteries are
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved, allowing safe transportation on aircraft, buses, and trains, as there is no
danger of spillage or leakage. We suggest you contact the carrier’s ticket counter in advance to determine that carrier’s
specific requirements.
What about shipping?
If you wish to use a freight company to ship your power chair to your final destination, repack your power chair in
the original shipping container and ship the batteries in separate boxes.

OPERATION
VSI CONTROLLER
The electronic controller is what you use to operate your power chair. It takes the battery voltage and sends it to the
appropriate system. The electronic controller enables you to move the power chair, as well as monitor battery
charge, electronic controller functions, and the condition of your electrical system. Also, it may be used to control
some optional systems such as power elevating seats and lights.
The VSI controller is an integral electronic controller. All
of the electronics necessary to
operate the power chair are
contained in one module. See
figure 27.
The VSI consists of:
1. joystick
2. keypad (see figure 28)
3. off-board charger/programming socket
4. actuator connector
(for optional equipment
on some models)
5. controller connector
6. 3-pin charger inhibit
connector
Typically, the VSI is mounted
to one of the armrests and is
connected to the motors, batteries, and the onboard charger
at the front battery box.
Figure 27. VSI Controller Assembly
Joystick
The joystick controls the direction and speed of your power chair. When you move the joystick from the neutral
(center) position, the electromagnetic brakes release and allow your power chair to move. The further you push the
joystick from its neutral position, the faster your power chair moves. When you release the joystick and allow it to
return to the neutral position, you engage the electromagnetic brakes. This causes your power chair to decelerate
and come to a complete stop.
WARNING! If your power chair begins to move in an unexpected manner, immediately release the
joystick. Unless the joystick is damaged, this action should stop your power chair.
Keypad
The keypad is located in front of the joystick. It contains keys necessary to operate your power chair. See figure 28.

OPERATION
Actuator Key and Actuator Lights (for optional equipment on some models)
Actuator keys and actuator lights are used for optional equipment such as power elevating seats or power elevating
leg rests. For specific operation of the actuator keys and actuator lights, contact your authorized Pride provider.
Horn Key
The horn key activates the horn.
Off-board Charger/Programming Socket
You may use an off-board charger to charge the power chair batteries through the 3-pin socket located on the front
of the VSI. See figure 27. If you use an off-board charger, the charger current should not exceed 12 amps. Contact
your authorized Pride provider for more information.
CAUTION! Only chargers with Neutrik NC3MX plugs should be connected to the onboard charger/
programming socket. See your authorized Pride provider for more information.
NOTE: The socket may also be used for reprogramming the VSI. Contact your authorized Pride provider for
more information.
Controller Connector
This connects the VSI to the power chair’s batteries, motors, and motor brakes.
3-pin Charger Inhibit Connector
This connects the VSI to the onboard battery charger. This connection provides an inhibit that disables the VSI
when the battery charger is on. The charger inhibit connector is coded with colored dots. The dots are positioned so
that you align the flat side of the male connector with the flat side of the female connector before making the
connection.
CAUTION! Failure to properly align the connectors can result in damage to the controller, the
charger, and the connectors.
Thermal Rollback
The VSI controller is equipped with a thermal rollback circuit. The circuit monitors the temperature of the controller, which roughly translates to motor temperature. In the event that the VSI controller becomes excessively hot
(above 140° F), motor current (amperage) is reduced. For every degree above 140°, the motor current limit is
reduced by .55 amps until the VSI controller reaches 158° F, at which time the current output is reduced to zero.
This reduces your power chair’s “power,” which could also reduce your power chair’s speed, and allows the electrical components and motors to cool down. When the temperature returns to a safe level, your power chair resumes its normal operation.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your power chair is a sophisticated, motorized vehicle. Like any motorized vehicle, it requires routine maintenance
checks. You can perform some of these checks yourself. But other maintenance checks may require assistance from
an authorized Pride provider. Routine maintenance is very important. If you follow the routine maintenance checks
in this section as scheduled, you can help ensure that your power chair gives you years of trouble-free operation. If
you have any doubt as to your power chair’s care or operation, contact your authorized Pride provider.
General Guidelines
n Avoid knocking or bumping the controller, especially the joystick.
n Avoid prolonged exposure of your power chair to extreme conditions, such as heat, cold, or moisture.
n Keep the controller clean.
n When the battery condition meter is completely lit, the batteries are fully charged, and the controller and the
electrical system are OK.
n If one red light on the battery condition meter is blinking slowly, the batteries are low and need to be charged,
but the controller and the electrical system are OK.
n If the battery condition meter is blinking rapidly, the controller has detected a fault in either its own circuits or in your
power chair’s circuits. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Make sure the drive tires are inflated to 30 – 35 psi.
WARNING! Overinflating tires can cause them to explode and can result in personal injury.
WARNING! Do not use a high pressure hose to inflate your tires.
n Use a rubber conditioner on the tire sidewalls to help preserve them.
WARNING! Never use a rubber conditioner on the tread area of the tires; doing so may make the
tires slippery and cause your power chair to skid.
n The body shroud has been sprayed with a clear sealant coating. You can apply a light coat of car wax to help it
retain its high-gloss appearance.
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and are not corroded. Batteries must sit flat within the
battery well, with the battery terminals facing inward, toward each other. Refer to the battery harness decal
for the correct battery layout. See figure 31.
n All wheel bearings are prelubricated and sealed. They require no subsequent lubrication.
Daily Checks
n With the controller turned off, check the joystick. Make sure it is not bent or damaged and that it returns to the
neutral position when you release it.
n Check the rubber boot around the base of the joystick for damage.
n Visually inspect the boot. Do not handle or try to repair it. See your authorized Pride provider if there is a
problem.
n Visually inspect the controller harness. Make sure that it is not frayed, cut, or has any wires exposed. See your
authorized Pride provider if there is a problem with any harnesses.
Weekly Checks
n Disconnect and inspect the controller from the electronics tray. Look for corrosion. Contact your authorized
Pride provider if necessary.

IX.
CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
n Ensure that all parts of the controller system are securely fastened to your power chair. Do not overtighten any
screws.
n Check for proper tire inflation. There should be 30 – 35 psi in each drive tire. If a tire does not hold air, see an
authorized Pride provider for replacement.
n Calibrate the joystick if you detect a noticeable difference in performance or if the joystick does not operate
properly. To calibrate the joystick, power off the unit, place the joystick in the neutral position, and power the
unit back on. If a problem still exists with your joystick’s performance, contact your authorized Pride
provider.
n Check the brakes. This test should be carried out on a level surface with at least three feet of clearance around
your power chair.
To check the brakes:
1. Turn on the controller and turn down the speed of your power chair to the lowest setting.
2. After one second, check the battery condition meter. Make sure that it remains lit.
3. Slowly push the joystick forward until you hear the electric brakes click. Immediately release the joystick. You
must be able to hear each electrical brake operating within a few seconds of joystick movement. Repeat this test
three times, pushing the joystick backwards, then left, and then right.
Monthly Checks
n Check that the anti-tip wheels do not rub the ground when you operate the power chair. Adjust them as
n necessary. See VI. “Comfort Adjustments.”
n Check for extreme wear on the anti-tip wheels. Replace them as necessary.
n Check for drive tire wear. See an authorized Pride provider for repair.
n Check the caster wheels for wear. Replace them as necessary.
n Check the rear forks for damage or fluttering which indicates that they may need to be adjusted or have the
bearings replaced. See an authorized Pride provider for repair.
n Keep your power chair clean and free of foreign material, such as mud, dirt, hair, food, and drink.
Yearly Checks
Take your power chair to an authorized Pride provider for yearly maintenance. This helps ensure that your power
chair is functioning properly and helps prevent future complications.
Storage
Your power chair should be stored in a dry place, free from temperature extremes. When storing, disconnect the
batteries from the power chair. See VII. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! If you fail to store the unit properly, the frame can rust and the electronics can be
damaged.
Cleaning Precautions
CAUTION! Never hose off your power chair or place it in direct contact with water. Your power
chair has a painted, ABS plastic body shroud that allows it to be easily wiped clean with a damp
cloth.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
WARNING! Never use any chemicals to clean a vinyl seat, as they may cause the seat to become
slippery or dry out and crack. Use soapy water and dry the seat thoroughly.
Your power chair, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from the elements. Avoid damp areas of any
kind.
CAUTION! Direct exposure to water or dampness could cause the power chair to malfunction
electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical components to corrode and the
chair’s frame to rust.
Should your power chair come in contact with water:
1. Dry your power chair as thoroughly as possible with a dry towel.
2. Allow your power chair to sit in a warm, dry place for 12 hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your power chair again.
4. If you find any inconsistencies, take your power chair to an authorized Pride provider.
Temperature
Some of the parts of your power chair are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. Always keep your power
chair between the temperatures of 18° F and 122° F.
n In extremely cold temperatures the batteries may freeze. The specific temperature at which they freeze depends
on a number of factors, such as battery charge, usage, and composition of the batteries (e.g., AGM or Gel-Cell).
n Temperatures above 122° F may cause your power chair to operate at a reduced speed. This reduced speed is a
safety feature built into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical components.
See VIII. “Operation.”
Corrective Maintenance
If the battery condition meter does not light up when you turn on the power:
n Check the harness connections. Make sure they are tight.
n Check the circuit breaker. Reset it if necessary.
n Check the battery connections.
If the above conditions prove normal, you can load test the batteries with a battery load tester. These testers are
available at automotive parts stores. Disconnect both batteries before load testing and follow the directions that
come with the load tester. If either one of the batteries fails the load test, replace both of them. If your power chair
still does not power up, contact your authorized Pride provider.
Battery Replacement
The batteries on your power chair are located inside battery boxes, in the power base. See figure 4. For information on
how to reconnect the batteries, refer to the battery harness decal which is located inside each battery box. See figure 31.
