Default 98 Club Car DS will not go

I was driving up a river bank this weekend(done it 50+ times this summer ) in my golf cart and it stalled at the top of the bank I pressed the brake to stop the card from rolling backwards but I also kept the gas down for some reason. I finally let the cart roll back down to the bottom of bank then I tried to put it in forward again it would not move and then reverse and it would not move. It seems to have a slight shutter/shake but will not move.

Any ideas or thoughts on what happened? Could it be a transmission or a pin of some sort I don't have a clue. Is this something I could fix myself or will I need to take to a shop?thoughts are more than welcome

You may have smoked the controller. Are your batteries charged up now, may have been the reason it never made it up the hill, low voltage.

Yes - you are not the first to experience failure. First thing to check is the battery pack. Note the voltage at rest. Then connect the meter to the pack and drive up hill. Note the lowest reading under load. Sometimes a 'good' battery drops out or drops a cell under load.
