Default 1975_80 club car goes well forward not so well in reverse

We just bought our fist electric club car. I know nothing about them the research I have done makes me believe it is between 1975-1980(it has 3 peddles). We purchased this as a means of transportation in our campgrounds. It goes really well forward on flat ground. It doesn't do well in reverse. My question is is that normal or is there a way to fix it.

Describe "not well."

From the factory it should go 1/2 the speed in reverse that it does in forward, this is accomplished by the power feed for reverse only pulling from 3 of the 6 batteries.

I could push it faster than it goes in reverse lol. It is a cute little cart and the price was right. Now just have to learn how to fix it hope you guys don't mind a lady with lots of dumb questions.

We dont mind at all, and there are no dumb questions here, eery one of us had to learn somehow.

It is possible that you have weak batteries or perhaps one weak battery. You'll need a digital multimeter of some sort (cheap and plentiful at most big box stores) to find out. I have to run and will check back on this thread later, in the meantime someone will likely chime in with thee advice on how to perform the tests and get voltage readings. Rest assured, it's easy and the folks here can walk you through anything you need help with.

reverse is wired 18v from factory
