Question 05 Precedent No Go when it rains?

A person at Ft Wilderness campground has a 2005 Precedent that will not do anything whenever it rains. It has a cab cover/enclosure with the windshield up and even if it wasn't being driven it will not go F or R. The reverse switch will buzz when in reverse but no movement either way. This has been going on for 2 years. Once the rain stops and it sits for an hour or two afterwards everything is fine. Yesterday his wife took the doggy's to the dog park with the cart. Everything was fine but once it started to rain it wouldn't move.

His service shop has replaced the motor, controller and key switch. They haven’t replaced his Go or Brake Pedal.

I believe I heard something about this condition before and it had to do with the Go & Brake Pedals getting water in them from a poor windshield design but this doesn’t fit his particular case.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Mine is a 2006 and even sitting or driving in the rain many times I’ve never had any problems with a No Go situation.

Thanks

wish I got a few more ideas but here is what it turned out to be...

He had the Go Pedal switch replaced... placed the cart in the rain… same thing!

The only thing that wasn’t replaced… literally… was the OBC… Once replaced No More Problems.

Final note… the OBC never got wet and was correctly covered, just the moisture in the air?!?!?!?!
