Okay
The three small wires to the controller are 1 for positive power "on" and two for throttle position indicator...... did you find a wiring diagram in the stickies at the top of this section? Print that out and compare it to what you have ......

ok i do have a diagram and everything looks ok other than a white wire and a black wire that split at the forward and reverse switch mine are actually not together like the diagram shows them together then splitting but if i should have juice at the wires of the controller then that might be my prob

Yes. like I said one of them is a positive pack voltage and the other 2 are the throttle, which works on ohms. They are 2 very different signals .... don't mix them up.

I thought I was pretty clear that one of the 3 small wires will be power + to the controller ... that turns it on.




the other 2 will carry an ohms reading varying from 5k-0 ohms to tell the controller what position the gas peddle is in....... What part of this explanation is not making sense to you? The ohms? The power up for the controller?

yes actually i am new at this and not sure what ohms are suppose to read but 5k to 0 i understand a lil more know. i checked the one pos and didnt get nothing on either of them on dc volts so i will check the ohms or should i just replace considering its not reading 52.9 its just jumping a lil not trying to be agravating just wanna take the kids around the campground at our new camper but yes ohms are confusing me i am learning the ropes
