Thumbs up Accelerator pedal problem

I am not familiar with newer club cars and was hoping for some advice/help. Recently a friend bought a 2013 club car that has been lifted and customized. It is 48v and I assume it has stock controller. Any way she asked me to drive it and try it out. I immediately realized that it had a great deal of play in the pedal. It seems not to engage or move at least until pedal is the way down. Then seems to be all or nothing in range of power. Cart is strong and nice but I don't think this is right. I have a 97 ezgo txt 36v that I have up graded with altrex spm 400Amp controller, heavy duty f/r, all new cables #4, low profile tires with 10in rims, etc. Anyway I have smooth acceleration and power. Solenoid engages and cart pulls on slightest push of pedal. Basically she paid a lot of money for cart and I didn't want to hurt her feelings or worry her with out reason. My question is, it's this normal and right? Should it have so much dead area in pedal? Can I adjust this? Thanks any help would be great.

She could have an MCOR problem which would exhibit these type of symptoms.

Sounds like a MCOR problem to me.

If I'm correct hers is ds model. Has the old body style? Does this make a difference?

Maybe the rod is not rotating completely with play in the pedal or its stripped. Or simply mcor. Test resistance of mcor.

The older DS models had some accelerator pedal wear underneath where the pedal meets the shaft going to the MCOR. The fix was to cut a short piece of small fuel hose and install it over the end of the shaft that touched the accelerator pedal. The shaft wore a groove in the pedal and this fixed it. YOu might check that out.

yes DS has mcor
underneath the cart attached to the frame



pull the 2 prong plug and jump it with a paper clip

if it runs normal replace mcor

also check the rod and pedal for wear like basshawk says
