Cart runs okay in forward & I believe the 48v 1998 uses a resistor to reduce the signal in reverse. You can take the 2 small wires off of the F&R micro switch closest to the rear of the cart and slip them together covered in tape... if that fixes the reverse problem you may want to find a more permanent or correct solution such as restoring the original function.

There are three wires on that micro-switch #3, You want to jump the Green and the White wires together.

Another quick way to verify the motor is wired correctly to the FNR:
Put the FNR in Neutral and measure for continuity between the 2 cables connected to the swivel posts.
You should have continuity if they are properly wired to the Motor field coil (S1 and S2).
