Any electromechanical device occasionally requires some troubleshooting. However, most of the problems that
may arise can usually be solved with a bit of thought and common sense. Many of these problems occur because
the batteries are not fully charged or because the batteries are worn down and can no longer hold a charge.
DIAGNOSTIC FLASH CODES
The diagnostic flash codes for your Hurricane PMV are designed to help you perform basic troubleshooting
quickly and easily. A diagnostic flash code will flash from the status LED in the event one of the conditions listed
below develops.
NOTE: Your Hurricane PMV will not run unless the flash code condition is resolved and the Hurricane
PMV has been turned off then turned back on.

What if all the systems on my Hurricane PMV seem to be “dead”?
n Make certain that the key is in the “on” position.
n Check that the batteries are fully charged. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
n Push in the main circuit breaker reset button. See V. “Your Hurricane PMV.”
n Make certain that both battery harnesses are firmly connected to the electronics module and to the battery
terminals. See IX. “Disassembly and Assembly.”
n Make sure that the silver front-to-rear harness is firmly connected to the electronics module. See IX.
“Disassembly and Assembly.”
n Be sure the auto shutoff feature hasn’t been activated. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
n Check the fuses. See XII. “Care and Maintenance” for fuse replacement.
What if the motor runs but my Hurricane PMV does not move?
n With the key turned to the “on” position, check the status LED. If the LED flashes three times, pauses briefly, then
flashes two times, this is the manual freewheel lever code meaning your Hurricane PMV is in freewheel mode.
n When the manual freewheel lever is pulled up, the brakes are disengaged and all power to the transaxle is cut.
n Push down the manual freewheel lever to restore normal operation to your Hurricane PMV. See V. “Your
Hurricane PMV.”
