Hi. Most probably its the throttle pot ( Wig Wag ) thats causing the problem. I am an Invacare service agent and I have changed these many times for this very reason.Also check motor brushes are not worn down or jaming. Good luck. Neil.

Sounds like your battery or batteries became disconnected. Remove the 3 screws holding the rear electronics cover on the chair. Check all the controller connections and specifically the 2 pin plug into the batteries in the battery box. Remove the screws and pull the front battery box cover off. Slide out the battery tray after removing the retaining screws on the bottom sides at the front. Check the batteries for loose or damaged connections and tighten.
If you cut or broke wires at the rear or bottom of the controller you can do a temporary repair and order new parts. You should be able to get the chair to power up if the power path connections are good. If it powers up after a check of the battery connections and power connection to the controller and you still have a fault code, I can help you further. Hope this helps you for now.

1) Yes your power seat functions can be programed into your drive 4,You'll need a programmer or have to take it into a shop.
2) yes the chair can be manually elevated down,You'll want to take it to a shop for that ,because it requires jumping the power to the seat elevator and swapping the wires around and I would never recommend my customers to do such a thing because of electric shock or burning up the chair.
If your chair has a four wat toggle switch("what controls your power seat functions elev,recl,telt,ext) If thats what your using right now there may be a red light that comes on in drive lock out ,If that light is not on follow that wire all the way down it may have been pinched or cut.If so it will need to be replaced.
Problems like this one is hard to trouble shoot over text or phone ,if your four way switch cord is cut or smashed .Your gunna have to take it into a shop just to make sure ,It didnt cause any electrical problems in your chair .
Good luck hope i had the chair in front of me so i could help you more.

I'm in a power wheelchair myself. If the wire coming out of your controller has a place in which it can be unplugged, you can try unplugging that, then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, then you probably don't have the appropriate tools needed to reset the controller. You'd need to take it in to get serviced.
