Replace the forward/reverse switch. Check it with a ohm meter to be sure.

the switch seems fine and it transpires that the guy who was helping me with work on the car has just told me that he decided to wire brush the contacts on the motor while it was connected and court the 2 terminals White and orange A2 & F2 posts on the Motor and a spark came from them. (OH great) this is when the problem started. any idea what to do next please

Vehicle will run in forward, but not in reverse or will run in reverse but not forward


Forward/Reverse rocker switch –
improperly wired

Motor – improperly wired Check motor wiring.


Speed controller – improperly wired or failed speed controller FET

Since the wiring wasn't changed,....

you should always place in tow mode and disconnect batteries when working around the controller area,...

I hope that your not thinking it's ok just because it clicks.

all seems ok with the wires as none have been moved they all seem to make good contact. I have put the volt meter onto the 2 small terminals on the solenoid and in reverse get a full battery reading of 47volts when I depress the pedal but when I put into forward position and depress the pedal I get 36volts for a split second then no reading at all ????????????? HELP

sounds like these are still swapped, the full voltage in reverse is the FWD speed and reverse is reduced,

might just be a logic problem from the sparks,

Speed controller logic malfunction

Disconnect the batteries and allow the
speed controller capacitors to discharge.

I'm curious. Is the solenoid clicking in both forward and reverse?

yes the solenoid clicks once when you put it into reverse and with the car jacked up it runs great backwards then as I put it into forward when I press the pedal it click and tries to pull forward and the solenoid just clicks a couple of times but the wheels don't turn
