Default 1996 club car stops moving and hesitates

I have a 1996 club car 48volt and it randomly moves slow and then speeds up and slows down. Then it randomly when I put it in reverse does not move at all. What could be going bad? The controller? The motor? Please help!! Thanks for the help in advance you all are very helpful!

In 1996 Club Car made both 48v Series and Sepex (Regen) carts. You have not provided enough information for anyone to be of much help. They are very different. Look in the *sticky* topics in the top section of the first page of this forum to learn what you have.

But the first thing you should look for is loose wires or corroded connections. Bad or loose connections can cause what you are describing. Controller & motor failures are not typically intermittent in the way you are describing.

Hello, I have looked and I have a 48vokt series cart. So what should be my next steps? The connections all look clean and connected.

I don't know series carts extremely well, but I'll take a shot. If it really does go "slow" and speed up (not stopping/starting randomly) - it sounds most like your "throttle". The reason for using that obscure term - is that you may have...

1) A POT BOX which connects via rod to the accelerator - it resides on the underside frame below the passenger's feet (known for frequent failure - used only on some '95/'96 models - its no longer made, and would have to be replaced with a MCOR 4 conversion kit)....see kit HERE

2) A Multi-Step Potentiometer (looks like a small pie shaped box which resides below the driver - between the batteries) which can be "adjusted or serviced". See HERE for an extensive description to inspect & service it.

There is also a fairly-small-chance that your issue is caused by your FNR lever arcing in & out due to wear - inspect it closely for arcing/burnt looking connections.
