    I need some pixie dust. My power chair died. I not sure what it is wrong but I hope it is the batteries. It had a decent charge on Friday when I used it and I went to the store on Saturday and it was deader than a door nail.
    Checked all cords and they are plugged properly. Tried to charge it Saturday after we got home and it is still dead. And I have class to get to tomorrow and a Video due on next Monday. I am really bummed!

    Will call my provider in the morning. If he doesn't have them in stock I will check on Batteries Plus. I think there is one right up the street from me not far.

    Here's some fresh pixie dust for you. I have heard ads for Batteries Plus where they highlight their large selection of wheelchair batteries, so hope they have one for you.

    Lisapooh, that's my worst nightmare! Have you checked all the computer hook ups? I can disengage my computer to make my chair free rolling and it disconnects the batteries but I must remember to reengage it. I'm sure it is something simple, and pray it is discovered and resolved quickly.
    PD to you.

    I haven't disengaged for free rolling lately but with my chair the controller is not disengaged just the wheels.
    Have checked all connections. Provider is coming in the am with batteries and the programmer for the controller.

    My chair is all fixed with new batteries. Well not quite all fixed but I can use it. HAve to have a few things done with the programmable controller that will be done next week.
    Rev the speed and have the controller set to turn off if I forget to do it.
    I'm functional again! Yea!
