Default 48 volt not running right

Ok so I went for short cold ride today. Since it was cold I was riding slower maybe half throttle and my cart felt like it was cutting back. Most of the time I ride full throttle and have not felt it cutting back.Any idea what would cause it to cut back?

It could be a lot of things.

Start with the basics. What year is the cart and what drive system? Age and condition of the batteries?

ASSUMING the batteries are good (just because they are only 2 years old does not mean they are good) I would suspect something wrong in the MCOR. Cold weather may have something to do with it, or it may have been there all along and you never noticed it if you run WOT all the time.

I'm no expert on those carts, just my thoughts.

How cold is cold?
What batteries are in it? 8v or 12v?

Ok Jay let's start from the beginning.

When you say "cutting back" do you mean slowing down while the pedal is in the same position as if losing power, or is it cutting in and out?

When was the last time you charged the batteries? Did you give them a full charge?

What is the voltage of the pack (total voltage of all batteries)? What is the voltage of each battery?

You will need a hand held voltage meter to get these voltages.
