Default 2004 ds not reaching top speed

New poster,long time reader. 2004 Club car not reaching normal full throttle speed. New U S battery pack with a full charge. Put a jack under rear end and lifted tires off the ground, then pressed pedal and the motor seems to be kicking in and out,thus not allowing cart to reach top speed. Any ideas? Thanks

First , don't do that. You can damage things running it with wheels in the air.

It is acting normal. When motor gets to max speed the speed sensor cuts power to motor. That's the simple way of saying it.

Are all the batteries hooked correctly. Check the cables again. Make sure the pack voltage is at least 50 volts.

That's what it is supposed to do with wheel in the air. Safety feature!

How fast does your cart run when you drive it.

Have you done the speed sensor test? Look at the top of the electric club car section for the speed sensor test post and it'll explain it perfectly.

Assume we're talking about an IQ system? 2004 still offered the Series system as well
