McGiver would be proud if you could find the wires attached to the horn button and install a different pushbutton. The real problem will be to find a way of mounting the pushbutton in such a way that it can be accessed without interfering with joystick motion.

There is a lever on both sides of the chair they are there to make it easy to push the chair without power. both sides need to be in brake mode in order for the chair to operate. If the levers are locked in brake mode then the motor wiring will need to be checked that it is plugged into the controller. A Tech may need to be contacted to help with this.

Most of these chairs have a clutch release lever near the motors. Move it into free-wheeling and it should roll nicely.

This may soundc crazy but try waving a magnet in front of the joy stick. It has been known to work.

How old are the batteries? Even fully charged older batteries can be weaker and not give you as much power to keep the speed at what you are used to. Now a dragging bake can cause you to go slower and also drag the batteries down quicker. Try driving the chair and after awhile check each motor to see if they feel overly warm or hot If one or both feel very warm or hot then I would have the brake or brakes checked If they seen ok I would get the batteries replaced

Yes the control board is likely the cause if all battery connections are checked and pass

If your M41 is more than a few years old it has a Lock Out feature. Try holding the ON button down for 3 or 4 seconds when you go to turn it ON. You should see all the lights come on and stay on. When you see all the lights stay on you can stop holding down the ON/OFF button.

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.

Here is a parts catalog for the M41. http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/06_108.pdf

If it was working fine before you swapped the batteries then you did something to interrupt the current flow. Pages 49/50 show the location of the controller with a picture. Unplug the connections here and make sure they are clean and in good shape. Make sure all other connections are clean and tight.

If you have 24V coming off the batteries into the controller, and 24V going out to the joystick from the controller and still nothing is working, then you will probably need to get ahold of an Invacare service tech to replace the joystick. Before he does that he should swap out the old joystick with a new one to see if that is the issue. Invacare parts are pretty pricey...joystick by itself is over $500.00. If the controller is shot, then you can double that cost. Sometimes, both need to be replaced as they can kill each other.

If the chair is old or has a lot of hard hours on it, you can usually shop around on Craigs List, etc and find a good newer/near new chair for about the same price as a new joystick replacement.

Hello,

The M41 does not have a circuit breaker, even if the owners manual says it does. There are fuses instead. One fuse on each battery. It is a very different looking fuse than one is use to seeing.

Hello,

The Pronto M41 does not have a speed limiter per say. If the chair used to go faster than it does now then you may have some kind of problem with the chair. If the chair has always driven' slow, that is slower than the maximum 3.5 to 4 MPH then a Invacare Remote programmer is needed to program the chair to go it's full speed.
Seek a Invacare dealer and ask them if they can check the programming.

Hello, If the joystick won't turn off it is a joystick problem. You can unplug the joystick cable from the joystick to save battery if you need to. This kind of problem means your joystick will need to be repaired at Invacare or replaced by a dealer of Invacare chairs.

Hello,

No belts on the M91. Your right motor sounds like it has stripped gears. The gears cannot be replaced. The whole gearbox has to be replaced. Most stores will only replace the complete motor and gearbox assembly. Invacare may not sell just the gearbox.

Hello,

Seven blinks is most often the joystick. A Invacare Remote Programmer can be plugged in to the joystick to verify this.

The M41 was not made to disassemble. The seat is the only part that is made to remove. The seat has a release level under the right side of the seat. To remove the seat lift up and hold the lever up as you lift the seat straight up off the center post. Do not forget to unplug the joystick cable from the base of the chair before lifting off the seat.
