Default faster in reverse than foward ????

Hey guys , I posted before and have not found the problem yet. I have a 93 club car 36 volt. It will run pretty good in reverse and is really slow in foward. I checked the wiring and it seems to be wired ok. any ideas where to look from here ??

A 93 CC had a 1/2 power reverse feature.... maybe you have it backwards? Why not post a few pics of the cart battery bay? Let us have a look around ....

It may seem to be wired ok but I just today learned that it's better to pull all the wires and clean 'em up with copper bristles . Not only are you ensuring a good contact but in my case a wire on the motor (reverse) popped right out of the copper connector. I silvered soldered it in and plan to do the rest when I have time. Perhaps a rigged fix for you would be to switch the forward and reverse main cables and see it it slows in reverse? Don't trust amatures like me either

Is the FNR Lever pointing towards "F" when You are going forward?

If it is not, You may have the 2 wires that go back to the motor reversed, the ones we can see in the picture look right.

I just posted some pictures on a different thread a few days ago, check the A1 and S1 wires back to the motor.

I just went and checked the wiring and it all looks correct to me.. Do you think the battery pack could be the problem ??

Holy extra wiring Batman!

What all accessories are on this baby? I see lots of small gauge wiring coming from batteries and going to something...
