Default Re: faster in reverse

Club car utilized a 1/2 speed reverse....... maybe you got the cable switched up and you have 1/2 speed forward?

i thank you for the response. the problem is , i personally did not install the new batteries nor do i know how they were installed prior.there is an extremely good chance its wired totally wrong . what i do know is that its a 1990 v glide. i apologize but i may need to be spoon fed!

So I guess the reversed cables should be easy enough to test.
1. Is there only 2 speeds in forward SLOW and Slow with little to no increase as you press the peddle ?
2. when in reverse does it pick up speed from slow to fast, the more U push the peddle ?

BUT , "2. when in reverse does it grasdually pick up speed from slow to fast, the more U push the peddle ?"

If no then it is not wired backwards !
Do U have a digital Volt meter and know how to use it ?
How many solinoids ?
Any BIG wire resistor wite coils ?

In order to help. We need to determine if you are wired for 1/2 power forward. The cart was originally wired for 1/2 power reverse for safety reasons. OR.... if you are having a speed control problem with the V-glide and resistor pack. If you are capable of switching a few cables around and/or giving us some readings from a digital voltmeter we can help The digital voltmeter is a must.

Normally you can buy an inexpensive one at Lowe's, Wall Mart, Home Depot, or various
auto parts stores for $15-$25 dollars.
A must have when owning/working a sparky
