Default 1997 club car 36v accelerator pedal question?

Please help...

1997 club car 36v accelerator pedal question?

When the accelerator pedal is the pressed it is full speed up top and progressively slower the more the pedal is pushed down. Pretty much opposite of what it should be.

Is something wired backwards? Other than this issue the cart runs fine forward and reverse.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Can you verify whether the cart has resistor coil or solid state speed control?

They made the last 36v solid state cart in 1994. It could be a conversion or an earlier year.
Anyway, solid state CC uses 2 different throttle ranges and they are opposite each other. One is 0-5000 and the other is 5000-0. Sounds like you may have a mismatch. Alltrax controls are programmable. If Alltrax you could switch it.

If you have a multi-step pot., you can move one wire inside to reverse the throttle input. Does it look like a piece of black pie?

Yes. Which wires would I swap?

Take off the cover on the inboard side. The black and white wires should be connected in there. Leave the wire connected that's on the bottom post. The other wire will be connected to one end of the resistor string. Move that one to the other end of the string.
