    Problem with SmartDrive MX2+

    My ICON wheelchair with a SmartDrive MX2, which has been modified to the MX2+ configuration, was secured in my van when I evidently made a couple of sharp movements of my right hand. I heard the SmartDrive engage for about 3 second and then stop before I had a chance to deactivate it with a double tap. I turned the Push Tracker off.


    When I arrived home, I turned off the SD, waited a minute or so and turned both the SD and PT back on and got a blue indicator light from the PT and four blue lights from the SD - no error codes but it does not engage. When I back up, I can feel resistance from the SD, but none when pushing forward. I was hoping that there was a reset, but none obvious

    Any thoughts?

    I think the motor is the same as the MX1 which is a geared brushless hub motor. As such you should have slight resistance in the reverse direction when the unit is turned *off* and *off* the chair. But the drive wheel should spin with little resistance in the forward direction when off the chair.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    The big problem is the SD turns off when I double tap. The resistance when backing up is definitely more than normal, and I thought it might be a symptom.
