Default Testing throttle output

Is there a way to test the percentage of throttle output, or do you need to take it to a dealership?

If you wan to see the throttle percentage that the controller is showing you need a scanner, which only a dealer will have.

Search for "MCOR testing" to get instructions for testing the resistance and voltage at the MCOR connectors.

With the batteries connected, Tow/Run switch in Run; place the black () probe on packs main Negative post and the red (+) probe on the yellow wire at the 3-pin connector near the MCOR. (The reading should be approximately ~0.32 to ~.5 vdc with the pedal up). Slowly press the Go Pedal and the readings should increase until it reaches ~4.65vdc or higher when the pedal is fully pressed. (Anything less than 4.60vdc and you are not reaching full throttle). If the reading is erratic or jumps all over the place it is a bad MCOR output signal..... Get one here https://www.revolutiongolfcars.com/mcors
(If no voltage coming out, there is another wire coming in of the three (3) there (may be white w/black stripe) that you need to probe and see if you get 5vdc.)

Thanks!!!

The small shop here also stated I could measure the current at the motor at WOT on a level roar. 47 volts or higher would prove thing were optimal? Does that make sense?

They are referring to measuring at the Armature, but there is more to it then they stated and more importantly that is "after" the controller and then based on incorrect readings you would assume it was an MCOR problem when in reality it was a Controller problem or vice versa.
