It's not any slower per say however it does kinda do what it wants. I've checked all the wires and all seems to be ok. My next guess would be obc? Reset it perhaps?

OBC only controls the battery charging levels and keeps it from running while the charger is plugged in. You can reset it - but I would expect no change. I know of no intermittent failures of controllers that would do what your describing either (although I'm not as smart as Sergio on these matters). What your describing really sounds like an intermittent/loose connection - did you check the cables on the motor also?

Also the v-glide could create exactly what you've described. You've complained about pedal "delay" before in this thread....I would really focus some time and effort on that puppy...something must be amiss in the accelerator circuit. I don't have a v-glide in mine, so hopefully someone familiar with testing/servicing your particular type of v-glide (potentiometer/Regen 2) will jump in.

Ya the v glide looks pretty sad. Wires are old and becoming exposed and the cover fell off somewhere on our golf course so it's been getting dirt and whatever else in it.

It's just weird because the day before I put water in it, itran fine. Then the day after, horribly.

Not sure if you can just buy a cover to replace it or not - but if its digesting dirt and crispy , it may be time to replace it outright. I know they aren't cheap. So here's what I would do first:

1) Pull the interfering battery(s) so you can remove it and clean/inspect it thoroughly for obvious failed or broken "resistors/wires or whatever else you see".

2) Test it - Even though your cart is not series - I THINK it uses the V-Glide that is discussed / described at length in THIS THREAD.

3) Find out from the site sponsor REVOLUTION GOLF CARS whether you can buy a cover. If you can - fix whatever isn't working properly - and re-install.

4) Buy a whole new one (from same sponsor because he'll know EXACTLY which version you'll need)

You may also choose to go from step 2 to 4 depending on what you discover.

Thanks a ton Joe!! I'll get all that done ASAP and get back. I have a tournament out of town this weekend so it might be a few days before I can get it done.

Holy something.... v glides are expensive. Definately gonna try to rebuild as much as possible. Thanks a ton for the link Joe. It's definately going to help in the task if rebuilding. AND they do have the cover available for sale by its self. Just FYI.
