KEEPING THE AMIGO CHARGED
Charger Operating Instructions
To Charge the Amigo AT3/AT5
Park the Amigo near a grounded AC electrical outlet. Turn the power “OFF” before charging. Charging cord is located on
back of the seat. Plug the end into the AC electrical outlet. Ensure the end of the cord is secure in the outlet. Be sure the
Amigo is parked close enough to the outlet so you don't stretch the AC cord to its full capacity.
Observe the battery gauge on the handle control panel. The battery gauge is a six bar design showing battery
charge level. Bars will stay lit to show charge level. If the batteries are at 50% charge, 3 bars will be lit.
When charging, the bars in the gauge will blink for approximately 30-45 seconds and then go solid as the charge
cycle begins. As the charge level goes up, more bars light up until all bars are lit. At the end of the charge cycle,
the bars will blink again signaling the batteries are fully charged.
• Charge when not in use for best battery life.
• It is best to allow the batteries to charge fully.
• For the very first charge, charge for nine (9) hours or overnight if possible.
Remember: It is best to keep the batteries fully charged. Extended charging is encouraged and will not overcharge or harm
the batteries.
Charger Safety Features
Driving functions are disabled while in the charging mode. This safety feature eliminates the possibility of driving
away while the cord is attached.
Assuring Long Battery Life & Warranty Protection
Establish a regular procedure for charging the Valet to assure that they have been fully charged. A multiple outlet strip
with a “POWER ON” indicator light could be used. Do not exceed outlet rating. Chargers draw approximately 2 amps
each until batteries are charged.
If the Amigo slows down and eventually loses all power within a day's use – and all other systems appear to be functioning
normally – the batteries may need replacing. For maximum performance, we recommend purchasing batteries
direct from the factory; threaded posts are used and not locally available.
Battery Care Recommendations
• It is highly recommended that you fully charge batteries BEFORE storing an Amigo AT3/AT5 to be serviced.
A full charge will greatly extend the life of the batteries.
• Discharged batteries left sitting can be damaged to the point of non-recovery.
Amigo warranty covers batteries for defects in product workmanship only. Inadequate/improper charging
will cause batteries to sulfate prematurely and is not covered under warranty.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT
IN PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
Battery Specifications
For lithium-ion or gel battery options, contact Amigo Mobility
• 12-volt
• 31 amp-hour minimum
• AGM (absorbed glass mat)
• Deep cycle
• Terminal type: M6 or 1/4 - 20 female threaded
non - ferrous plated metal
• UL recognized component
Battery Charging Precautions
• Charge batteries supplied on vehicle with Amigo "original equipment charger."
• Charge batteries fully in a dry location.
• Clean any corrosion on the connections.
• Examine cord periodically for cracking or damage.
• If you remove the batteries from the Amigo, put them on a surface that cannot be damaged by acid fumes. Whenever a battery is charged and discharged through a cycle, it breathes. The breathing of the battery emits acid fumes and may mark surfaces it rests on for long periods of time.
• Never smoke or allow an open flame in the vicinity of the battery.
• Use charger for charging a sealed lead acid battery only. It is not intended to supply power to
an extra-low-voltage electrical system or to charge dry cell batteries.
• Never charge a frozen battery.
• Do not operate the charger in a closed-in area or restrict ventilation in any way.
• Be extra cautious not to drop a metal tool onto the batteries.
• Remove jewelry and watches.
• A spark near the battery may cause explosion.
To Reduce Risk of Spark:
1. Prevent external damage to AC and DC cords.
2. Connect DC wires to the batteries before connecting charger AC supply cord to the AC electrical outlet.
3. When disconnecting charger, always do so in reverse sequence of connecting procedure.
Break first connection as far away from battery as possible. Distance reduces the chance of
explosion if a spark is generated and gas is present.
TO AVOID DAMAGE TO BATTERIES DURING STORAGE, DO NOT PLACE THEM WITH
THE POSITIVE (+) AND NEGATIVE (-) TERMINALS NEXT TO EACH OTHER (FIGURE 4).

Circuit Breaker Replacement
An automatic resetting circuit breaker protects the wiring and battery in the event of a short
circuit. If the Amigo stops, check for overloads or short circuits before continuing to operate.
On the AT3 and AT5, the circuit breaker is located under the rear cover. Circuit breaker is
attached to the positive terminal on one battery per model (Figure 8). If you suspect the
circuit breaker is defective, use a jumper wire between the two terminals of the breaker. If
the Amigo runs with the use of a jumper wire in place of circuit breaker, replace the circuit
breaker (note: seat switch must be sat on or pressed down for vehicle to run). Use of a jumper
wire is for test purposes only.
Circuit Breaker
Figure 8 (Part No. 7441)
DO NOT CONTINUE TO OPERATE THE AMIGO UNTIL THE CIRCUIT BREAKER IS REPLACED.
Occupant Seat Switch
The occupant seat switch is located under the Amigo seat. The occupant’s weight on the seat activates the switch allowing the
Amigo to operate. (The Amigo is non-operational without a seat occupant. Occupant must be seated firmly on seat. Sitting on
edges may not activate switch.) If the Amigo will not operate while the occupant is seated, disconnect wire from seat switch. Place
a jumper wire between the connections. If the Amigo runs, replace seat switch. If the Amigo does not run, contact a local service
representative.
A SEAT SWITCH THAT IS NOT PROPERLY MAINTAINED OR IS DISCONNECTED
MAY CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. DO NOT OPERATE
AMIGO UNTIL SEAT SWITCH IS REPLACED.
