You are missing the right front battery. Use the positive of the left front battery and the negative of the left front battery. Both test points are actually on either side of the run/tow switch which is in the middle. And although the batteries might have a standing still voltage of 12+ volts---you need to make sure the whole pack maintains 48+ while moving. Go and try again

What this tells me is one battery is not being read? I tried reading the batteries several different ways with the same 37.5 volts. when I add up batteries 1-3 I get 37.5. What's wrong??
by the way, I just talked to my friend who bought one with me yesterday. same year, same model. he gets a reading of 15mph in the grass with 3 people!!
Using Figure C are you testing the whole battery pack by placing your meter leads on Battery 1 Positive and Battery 4 Negative? Notice where is shows FRONT of cart.

Okay... checked between the front left + and the right front - and I get 50.3 volts. Ran it again with the meter attached. Accel. to the floor at a whopping 7.8 mph, voltage drops to 48volts and pretty much stays there. Can I assume that the speed sensor is bad? From what I've read on here that's probably it.
Also, is the cart supposed to move when the tow/run switch is moved to "tow"? Mine will not move when in tow. Someone school me on the switch.
Thanks Again.

Your cart should NOT move in TOW so that's OK. I mentioned before that there are 3 settings in your controller for speed and yours seems to be at the first setting. Is the little grey pigtail coming out from your motor plugged in? How fast is it in reverse?

With mine when it was on Code 3 with 22" tires the best consistent speed I got was 18.9 MPH on a Garmin GPS. Speed Code 3 keeps your cart at 14.6 but the larger tires puts it at a higher MPH. With Code 4 and 22" tires I got a consistent speed of 20.3 MPH with a Garmin GPS on level ground. With the PQ I can get 26.5 and on most GPS's that would equate to 27 MPH. What size tires do you have and what Speed Code is yours set at?

The tires are 12's, I don't know the code but the dealer says it is the highest.
But I never saw them check that out for me.

The highest code is Code 4 and with stock tires you'd get 19.2 - 19.7 MPH. There should be a sticker showing that code on the inside of your dash. With oversized tires you'd hit that 21 MPH mark now and then for sure. For $300 out of pocket you could be at the 25+ mark easy!

I called the guy I bought it from and he told me that the speed sensor is probably bad. He's had one do the same thing before. The speed in reverse "seems" fine. I watched him connect the diag. tool to the cart before I bought it. He said it was already in speed #3 setting. He asked me if I wanted the faster take off setting changed but I liked the way it was. I'm supposed to go pick up my rear seat that I ordered from him on Wed. and he told me to bring the cart to him when I come there so that he can get the problem corrected.
I guess I can take a little bit of the blame for the problem since I wanted to make sure I got the first pick of the carts when they came off the trailer. He didn't have time to log them in, muck less have time to charge the batteries and give them a good check out. He did let us switch some parts off of some of the other carts to make mine as good as possible.
Anyway I'll post a final update once I get the problem fixed.
Thanks again for all of the info.!!

Scubabud, what is it that I need for $300.00 to hit the 25mph?

Thanks, Prec
