Default CLub car D/S I/Q Throttle

Question for you guys with more knowledge than me. I'm new to the cart world. At what point should my cart begin to move forward when I depress the throttle? Mine has to be depressed almost 3/4 the way down before I get any reaction. The dealer I bought it from says it has a 20mph speed code in it. It only goes 14 - 15mph. Original motor and controller with new batteries. 48 volt. O7' model DS IQ. Is there a manual adjustment that would help? Thanks for any help/advice.

From what I have read, there are two programmable speed settings. One is the accelerator response, which by default is set to "slow" (or "off"), ie, not a lot of torque when depressed, with a slow take off speed, gradually increasing to top speed. The second setting is the Code 04 or Private Use Vehicle, which costs about $100-150 at dealer to increase speed to about 20mph.

Yep,, Set for code 4. Dang thing moves like I want it to now. Don't think I need any upgrades for now. Maybe I'll get the bug and do something later. No mud or steep inclines on my lease so I can navigate pretty much any where I want with what I got. Thanks to all for the tips.

I have same issue with my throttle . . . what exactly did you adjust? I looked over my linkage and really only see one adjustment and it is for the pedal position, ie, loosening it allows the pedal to be positioned closer to floorboard. My pedal seems to move half to two-thirds of it's travel before rotating the MCOR input shaft. The other adjustment I see is within the return spring.

Not sure what year and model you have. I have a 2003 DS IQ. When you press on your accelerator pedal you should only have about an inch of travel before you hear a click. If you have more than an inch your throttle linkage is most likely worn and needs replacement or repair. Look at your accelerator pedal on your floorboard from the top view inside your cart not underneath. You can view this from below as well just trying to direct you to the exact spot for clarity. You will see a small hole where the pedal sticks through. If you look closely you will see a round rod that rest against the pedal and is moved or rotated when you mash the pedal down. It is that round rod and the spot on the pedal that it rest against where the metal wears and creates slop in your linkage. There are other places also in the linkage that create slop but try this first. Remove your MCOR (2 screws). Remove the slotted rod that goes into your MCOR. It falls out when your remove your MCOR. This rod has a fork on one end. One of the forks is the round part you were looking at from above at your pedal. Place a piece of fuel hose over the round rod on the end where it touches the pedal. Reinstall the rod and your MCOR. Takes about 5 minutes. The fuel hose acts as a shim for the worn metal. It does not take much wear to make a difference here. This fix will enable the round slotted rod to rotate a greater amount inside your MCOR allowing you to attain your full throttle position. Hope this helps
