Water ran down into control board area
I have an electric wheelchair. I was having my hair washed by tilting and reclining over my kitchen sink. Some water ran down my back into the general electronics area; a board, switches, etc.
It was not as bad as a downpour but more than a sprinkle. All of the electronics comes on but not functioning.
I am getting a couple of error messages. I talked with the wheelchair manufacturer tech support to better understand the codes.
He originally said the bus connectors. Check to ensure they are plugged in securely, not crimped, or visibly damaged. They are in and not visibly damaged.
Talking with him more, he suggested checking the limit switches. Without a tech manually touching them, we have done the best we can.
Continuing to inspect things on our own, we can see where things got wet. We have held a hairdryer over the area.
I'm in quite a bind. Anything medical is expensive to repair or even to check out by a tech. I'm currently stuck in the air and unable to move.
Can anyone give me some advice on preceding, before calling in a tech? They most likely will not be available until tomorrow or later but even then, it will be days before any repairs can be completed.
Thank you all for your help.
Is this a good question?
