Your Jet 2 is a sophisticated power chair. Like any motorized vehicle, it requires routine maintenance checks. You
can perform some of these checks, but others require assistance from your authorized Pride provider. Preventive
maintenance is very important. If you follow the maintenance checks in this section as scheduled, you can help
ensure that your Jet 2 gives you years of trouble-free operation. If you have any doubt as to your Jet 2s care or
operation, contact your authorized Pride provider.
WARNING! Your Jet 2, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from the ele-
ments. Avoid damp areas of any kind. Direct exposure to water or dampness could cause the
power chair to malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical compo-
nents to corrode and the power chairs frame to rust.
Should your Jet 2 come in contact with water:
1. Dry your Jet 2 as much as possible with a dry towel.
2. Allow your Jet 2 to sit in a warm dry place for twelve hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your Jet 2 again.
4. If any inconsistencies are found, take your Jet 2 to your authorized Pride provider.
Some of the parts of your Jet 2 are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. Always keep your Jet 2
between the temperatures of 18° F and 122° F.
n In extremely cold temperatures the batteries may freeze. The specific temperature at which they will freeze
depends on a number of factors, such as battery charge, usage, and composition of the batteries (e.g., sealed
lead-acid or gel cell).
n Temperatures above 122° F may cause your Jet 2 to operate at a reduced speed. This is a safety feature built
into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical components. See VIII. Opera-
n Avoid knocking or bumping the controller, especially the joystick.
n Avoid prolonged exposure of your Jet 2 to extreme conditions, such as heat, cold, or moisture.
n Keep the controller clean.
n Check all controller connectors on the utility tray to ensure that they are all tight and secured properly. See
figures 9 an d 10. Also check the charger harness connector.
n When the battery condition meter is completely lit, the batteries are fully charged and the controller and the
electrical system are OK.
n If two red LEDs on the battery condition meter are blinking slowly, the batteries are low and need to be
charged, but the controller and the electrical system are OK.
n If the battery condition meter is blinking rapidly, the controller has detected a fault in either its own circuits or
in your Jet 2s circuits. See VIII. Operation.
n Use a rubber conditioner on the tire sidewalls to help preserve them. Check for wear.
WARNING! Never use a rubber conditioner on the tread area of the tires; doing so may make the
tires slippery and cause your Jet 2 to skid.
