Default cart runs slow forwards but fine in reverse

I have a 2011 precedent that has been running fine. It had not been used in several weeks and now it all of a sudden runs slow traveling forward but runs fine in reverse.

Is the reverse horn working properly?

Speed sensor?? First put cart in Tow for a few minutes then back to run. Sometimes they need a re boot.

Yes, reverse horn works fine. I will try the tow run switch this afternoon when I get home.

Flipping the tow switch did not help.

Have you recently had any wires disconnected and reconnected from your motor or controller?

Did the speed sensor test, the cart freewheels and there is no beeping. It rolls without any resistance.

You have a bad speed sensor. David Hicks site sponsor here sells the good ones.

Definitely a speed sensor failure. Very common.
