    Is it from static shocks? A surge from static electricity may be shutting it down.

    I had a similar problem on a Hoveround I was going to give away. When it was on full speed the thing would just lock up. Really dangerous. At slower speeds it was fine. Electronics! The tech said I need to replace the controller. I was quoted around $600.00! The chair was my mother's. She's gone so the chair sits. Maybe I'll source a used controller and donate the chair.

    Just curious, what model Permobil is it and how long have you had it? I'm looking into possibly getting a Permobil to replace my Q6000.

    Do you need a loaner manual while you get it fixed? let us know...

    Could be the controller. Happened to me. They'll also want to check the joystick and the wiring. Fixing the controller just takes a few minutes, it's just plug and play (with a new controller of course).
