Default Fast and slow

Hello and great site. I have a n 07 Precendent that has been working great until the other day. It was set to #3 for speed from the dealer. The batteries are charging fine and I have looked after them. Just the other day I went to use the cart on 3/4 charge and it went real slow. It starts fast and then when it reaches speed it slows down. It still moves along but at a slow speed. I charged the batteries to full and tried again. Still it starts by gaining speed and then slows to a slow speed. Does the OBC need to be reset and if so do I diconnect "all" the batteries and switch it into reverse (in tow mode) until the buzzer shuts off?

Thanks...Steve

Called the dealer and they said it would be fixed under warranty no problem. They are sending a service guy out tomorrow. I believe he said it was a speed limit switch or something like that.

I will post up tomorrow when I get home to see if that was the problem. According to the service guy he said it is common in the Precedent.

It was the speed sensor and they replaced it under warranty no problem. He said it has a four year warranty or 1000 charges so I don't know what sort of cost it would be if I had to pay.

Yes warranty is always a good thing. Our dealer has been fantastic. They are located approx 45 minutes away but never complain about coming this way to fix things. I asked if I should load it on the trailer and he said it would be much easier just to send someone out to fix it. It also helps the area I live in is a golf cart friendly gated community so it is in his best interest to keep us all happy.
