Moving forward, my next project will be researching why my carts top speed is so slow? From a stand still my carts starts out with tons of torque, but quickly slows. Also when in reverse it barley moves. Trying to do my part as I did purchase my new charger from a site sponsor.

Tom,

Bypassing that OBC is just a temporary setting to test if your OBC was bad. Obviously your was. You need to replace the OBC or best is to buy and use a smart charger from now on like a Lester Summit II. If you are using your Powerdrive charger right now it is only in manual and has no charging controls at all.

2nd, your speed sensor has failed and your cart is in "Limp" mode. That is why it takes off hard and then slows down. Reverse is only 50% to begin with so now you have less than half of that..... (You can verify what I am saying by manually pushing the cart forwards and backwards, where you should be feeling a lot of resistance and also loud beeping. If you are not getting both, that proves the speed sensor has failed.) You can get an OEM replacement speed sensor here https://www.revolutiongolfcars.com/motors just identify if yours is the top-hat style or Flat snap in style. They are easily seen by looking up under the cart and the back side of the motor. That is where they connect into it at.

Cool and thank you for the information. I did purchased a smart charger to replace my power drive. Thanks for watching out for me.
