Default Re: Slow 48V DS

Switching the wires will do absolutely nothing, it is just a ON/OFF switch, it does not matter what side the wires are connected to.

Did You ever disconnected the white wire?

The proper way to test is to measure the resistance you are getting at Terminal #2 and Terminal #3 on the controller:

Turn Key Switch OFF

Disconnect Terminal #2 (black wire) from the Controller
Disconnect Terminal #3 (white wire) from the Controller

Set Your Meter to 20kΩ
Set FNR Lever to Forward
Place meter probes on the wires you just disconnected.
Pedal Up to Pedal Down should go from 0 to about 5kΩ

Set the FNR lever to Reverse
Pedal Up to Pedal Down should go from 0 to about 2.2kΩ

Edit: With Pedal UP, before You press it, the meter should read infinite resistance or 0L, the meter will not read until the VGlide touches the first pad.

None of those things have worked.

Upon doing some other research, I have a question. Is my speed controller located in my V-Glide?

Can it fail?

Is it fixable or purchase of a new one required?

The Vglide is the throttle pedal position indicator... the variable signal produced by the pedal position is sent to the speed control which tells it how much amperage to allow to pass to the motor.
The basic system components are controller, solenoid, vglide, F&R.
Once a healthy power supply is verified.
Solenoid is clicking (and actually letting high amp current pass)
Power verified to controller logic board.
Vglide signal should be verified as instructed above ^^^
All cables checked for defects
If the problem still is not found - check motor.
hope this helps

im back again with no change in the output of the cart(yes almost and entire year later). I would like some guidance in ruling things out. can I take the motor apart and clean it, maybe new brushes and posts? can I do the same with the vglide? same with FNR?

Did this cart ever run right since you've had it? Full speed forward- half speed reverse? I'm starting to wonder about the power wiring.

The only thing that controls the 1/2 speed on Your cart is the micro-switch #3.

That is the switch that has a white wire and a black wire and it is the closest one to the batteries.

Did You ever have a chance to disconnect those wires?

Can You post a picture of the controller showing the wires connected to it?

How many wires total go into the Multi-Step Potentiometer (V-Glide)?

That micro switch is how the 1/2 speed works on those carts, it is impossible for the forward/reverse speed to change if those wires are disconnected unless there is some other major wiring issue on the cart.

I had posted (Post #41) a procedure to check the Multi-Step potentiometer range and proper direction (0->5kΩ or 5kΩ->0), and the answer was "None of those things have worked".

I am not sure what that means, without resistance change on those wires the cart could not move at all.

Really need the information on the controller label and ohm readings. Without ever running right and no history this muti-step could be 5k-0 ohm.
