Purchased a used Acorn 180 with T565 PCB Controller. Installed in my stairs which is about 15 inches longer than previous home installation. Managed to find a T565 quick guide to programming. I cannot get the lift up to the upper charging point. It stops about 15 inches short with a J3 error code. Supposedly the J3 would be cleared if I could get to the top charging point. I’m stuck! Need to get to the top so I can program the unit. I did try to jumper from the chairlift charge contacts to the charging point which cleared the J3 code but then it came right back when I removed the jumpers. Any ideas? Thanks.

You will need to get into program mode first in order to be able to move up to the charge point.
On the later version of the Acorn 180 you need to hold the bottom foot rest plus both the side safety switched to get into program mode and not the bottom and side foot rest switches as shown in a lot of publications.
Have a look at the site I found ,the best & most concise information for programming.

With your help I was able to get into the Programming mode. I followed all of the instructions through P1, P2, and P3. I now have another problem. Going down from the top of the stairs the carriage makes it through the turn at the landing and then stops with a J3. Pressing the down button again moves the carriage about 1/4 inch. After several attempts I get a F8 (Tilt Limit Switch). If I level the carriage the F8 goes away and then I eventually am able to complete the down travel.
