Default 99 ds regen2 speed control checking?

so i recently picked up a 99ds and it worked fine every day for 2 weeks.
then i went on a trip, come back, and its dead in the water
so im looking at the wire diagram and its helpful but i still
don't know what voltages im supposed to see and when.
solenoids both hit and open and close the circuit so i think they are ok
when i apply the go pedal the cart has a slight vibration for maybe a
full second then nothing....like it wants to move then doesn't.

i suspect the speed control is bad but i cant confirm that.
a system description or procedure to confirm my suspicion
is what i need. don't wanna drop 300-400 bucks just to find
out its something else.

Thanks in advance

Sounds like a bad battery. Attach the digital multimeter to the pack. Note the standing voltage and then watch the meter as you try to go. What does it drop to?

Regen 2 was not used for long and it is not a popular drive system. Parts are expensive and rare. Best to sell this one and find something else.

pack voltage is 50.7 give or take.
state of chage isnt the issue.
ive checked the obvious already
if you are trying to be a smartass keep it to yourself
i just wanna fix it not get in a pissing contest on the web.
i may be new to this cart and forum but im not new to
circuits and motors.

thanks scottyb ill check the pack voltage under load.
is there a low voltage cutoff where the cart wont
go if the pack voltage drops to a certain point?

This is not "that kind of forum" - resist the urge to bark! Sometimes members use their smartphones to reply - and the comments appear terse - they are NOT; they are meant to offer help or suggestions in all cases. Remember that nobody magically knows your level of knowledge....it becomes obvious after a few questions & answers and then the suggestions begin to match your particular situation!

Don't take this wrong, but

1998/1999 PowerDrive System 48 Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement Publication Part No. 101968404
1998/1999 PowerDrive Plus Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement Publication Part No. 101968405
1998/1999 V-Glide 36-Volt Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement Publication Part No. 101968406
1998/1999 FE 290 Gasoline Vehicle Maintenance & Service Supplement Publication Part No. 101968407

Each model that year has it's own Maintenance & Service Supplement

The supplement will provide maintenance and repair procedures
for those components specific to a particular type of vehicle.

Now there are a few folks that can give you a couple of test that will pin point the problem rather quickly, I can offer the PDF files and you can search the trouble shooting steps on your own,


Tip: a serial number and some pictures would move this along also,...and of course this is just my opinion

It appears he has a Sepex (Regen 2) per the topic heading. So I will assume you have a rocker switch for fwd/rev and a run/tow switch...not a big lever. Batteries "can" do this (although more common on a series cart) but its easy to test. Put your voltmeter on each battery (one at a time) and hit-the-gas! If one or two takes a dive in voltage, you have a good lead. Obviously the power-on circuit seems to be working if the cart tries to move. The next is a poor/corroded connection. Go over all the battery/motor connections and all the little connectors you can find to see if one is just holding by a few strands (even give them a little tug). If they look suspect - clean 'em up & refit.

Your next area to look is the accelerator components - Regen 2 likely has a multi-step potentiometer. Trouble is - you often experience "signs" that this device is failing before it does (but not always). There is a good article HERE on a lot of troubleshooting tips for Regen 2.

Lastly - there is a wiring diagram for your cart in the above "stickies" called Club Car DS Regen 1999-2002 Wiring . If you have a Regen cart - that diagram should match up.

did I miss something here where does it say 50.7 volts on the pack.

Also could it be the OBC lockout causing the problem? since it was sitting for a period and could cycling the OBC through a charge cycle and then unplugging it reset this and if there is a bad battery would this make it run for a short period and then give us more info.

Sorry to have offended your intelligence
