Sorry it is a 1997 that I power washed and now is slow
 
I power washed my 1997 48v CC and now it is ver slow. I cleaned all the connectors on the pie switch and the f-r switch then put back together. I made the pie switch adjust all the wway to the top and that helped but it still is not up to full snuff. Right after I washed it it was buzzing for a bit them quit. I am not a good electrical guy so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is the controller the box under the back deck panel area?

what did you clean your "pie" with? denatured alcohol or 99% isopropyl is safe for de-engerized electronics and will expedite the evaporation of any remaining moisture. a air compressor &/or hair dryer helps too.

I cleaned them with a wire brush on contacts. I have set it out in the sun for two days so I would think it should be dry by now but not sure. I have ran it around town a bit and it keeps going just not as much power as it should have.

hmm.... could a bristle from the wire brush be lodged between the last two contacts?

on the controller, pull the wires off the #2 and #3 spade. using a DVOM set for Ohms, get a reading on those 2 wires with the pedal up and then again with the pedal to the floor..... Post your results please.

sorry, spade connectors... small flat pieces of metal that the wire connector slips onto.... there should be 3 of them in a row on the box.
