Default new batteries but same problem accelerating

I have a 1995 electric club car and when the cart "stuttered" before accelerating and sometimes refused to go up slight inclines, I replaced the 3 year old 48 volt batteries. Now, inclines can be negotiated, but the "stuttering" still exists and others have told me that this should not be happening and that doubtless the cause is something other than batteries. A solenoid was suggested but I have no idea what that is or if it could contribute to the probem. Any suggestions for solutions with detailed explanation? Thanks - - I am mechanically and electrically challenged.

I believe the brushes in the motor are bad, the motor can be rebuilt. Take it apart and check your brushes or if I can help let me know.

Your problem is caused by you requiring more amperage than your car can recieve.

Brushes are most likely it, they are 13 years old, when they start wearing out, they only make a partial connection passing less voltage. When you climb the hills, your connection isn't strong enough to go, so your motor starts shuttering.

If it's not brushes it could be any electrical connection in your car. The same concept could apply, it allows low amperage to pass with no problem, but with high amperage it has trouble. Check your f/r switch, motor wires, and speed controller wires, and solenoid wires. You are looking for loose or nearly broken wires. Tug each one firmly.

It could also be a weak speed controller, the same concept as the two previous. It may not allow enough voltage through to fully climb the hills as before.

Your solenoid is what turns your car on/off, itself probably wouldn't cause your symptoms.

If you are mechanically and electrically challenged, I would highly reccommend leaving the motor alone, you can do more damage by taking it off wrong.

Good Luck!
