Default 36v to 48v conversion on 2000 ds club car.

Just bought a 2000 ds. I think it has been converted to a 48v.
My problem is when I step on the go pedal and hear the first click then depress the pedal just a little more The machine will snap your head back. Too much torque. Has a 700 amp. controler.

This old coddger can"t handle this! What's wrong? What can I do?

If you have the wrong throttle type the cart and the control will not sync.
What is the model # of the controller?

Since the cart starts off at full throttle you will need to test the throttle signal. We know it should be around 5000 to start and near 0 when the pedal is on the floor.
Simply remove the 2 small wires plugged into the controller pins #2&3 and plug your test meter into these spade connectors. Set the meter to ohms. A 20,000 Ω range is best. But any reading such as 5.5 would represent 5500Ω

7000 is higher than I like to see for a 5000-0 throttle signal. Can the grandson adjust the linkage until it is closer to 6000?

Has anybody been adjusting the throttle ramp rate on this controller?
Could just be maxed out?
