Do you have a V-Glide(v-shaped box between batteries on driver side and middle batteries) or a MCOR which is underneath the car and is a little black box?

They are the items which control speed. Depending on which you have, different things may be going on...

Ok, next question.

1. Have you made any changes to this cart upgrades, replaced f/r switch etc..etc..etc....?

2. Did you have power problem before you changed batteries

No upgrades it looks stock. I bought 3 for my business. They all have '03 Trojan batteries. Took one to shop and told me I needed batteries and v-glide. Replaced batteries with Exide batteries. It improved the power some. I checked the v-glide. It seemed fine. It goes all the way to the top bar and I cleaned the contacts with fine sandpaper. No improvement on v-glide power. I am comparing this to a '93 I have at home that has plenty of power. Both are 48-volt.

you have a 93 48v? That has to be an aftermarket creation... Club Car didn't enter the 48v world until 95, maybe 94...

Anyways, lets try this first, if you have a multimeter, check to verify the micro switch that is on the outside of the three on the f/r switch.. it should have a green, white, and black wire going into it... verify that it is working properly..

If that micro switch is stuck then it is sending the half speed reading to the speed controller.

Past that, if your wires are older, you may be losing voltage in the wires...

Other possibilities... worn brushes, or worn out amature...

first another question... does your car have a tow/run switch and a rocker switch for f/r? if so then Ive went the wrong direction in telling you what to do...


you aren't looking for voltage on that micro switch. Just set your multimeter to ohms and see if the micro is working.

there are three posts.. C, NO, NC... The common is your reference, with the switch disengaged, the NO should have no continuity, and the NC should have continuity... with the switch engaged, exactly the opposite...
