Check all cables and connections on the F/R switch. Does the F/R switch have micro switches?

Make sure you have continuity thru the forward and reverse switch both in forward position (which you have because it moves forward) and reverse position. Could be bad contacts on the switch. Check the motor connections also.

This is a Regen 1 cart... No need for a continuity check on the F&R... if there were no continuity it wouldn't tell the buzzer to turn on. You've got a bad controller. No doubt about it. Bad news man... This controller is no longer made, however the dealer will be able to hook you up with a Regen 1 to Regen 2 conversion kit... It's pretty expensive, somewhere in the 500-600 dollar neighborhood I believe. You'd be better off changing to IQ. It's a little more than that but it's WAY faster, powerful, and more efficient. Let me know if you need any help.
