The first step is to turn your wheelchair on if it isn't already. Then you will need to hold the power button until you hear a beep. Move the joystick forward and hold again until you hear another beep, then move the joystick backwards and hold until you hear the beep again. Performing this swiftly is key!

I know it sure took me a few tries when I did it!
