Yuor description with the pedal makes it kind of obvious that you are dealing with a potentiometer issue! Sounds like when you let all the way off the pot is giving the controller a false ohm input and the controller is either doing a high pedal lockout or just simply not getting any good input.

pulled the two wires from v speed unit at the controller plugged in leads from ohmmeter put the ohmmeter at 2k and pushed in the pedal

when solenoid kicks in get about a 700 reading....pushing pedal all the way down....goes up to 1800

anything else I should be looking for?

tried it on 20 k reading,...looked at my last post and thought twice about using the 2k

when solenoid kicks in, have 0 but goes up to about 2.6 with pedal pushed down but here's the weird thing.....with pedal fully out, as it would be with out having your foot on it,..I'm getting a 5.6 reading but just pushing the pedal in a hair returns it to 0 and just a bit more kicks in the solenoid and than it climbs as you push the pedal in...........should there be a reading without touching the pedal??????????????


am I getting closer???????????

With no pedal it should be close to zero but there is a little tolerance there because it will not be exactly zero.
However 5.6 ( I'm guessing K and not 5.6 ohms) or something close should be at full pedal. And the reading should change gradually! No big jumps!

Can you adjust any linkage to get a reliable close to zero ohm "off pedal" reading?
Is there any return springs that are not doing their jobs?

linkage and adjustment is pretty rusty and it's starting to get dark....so I'm done until tomorrow but here's what I've noticed

1.I pulled the cover off the v speed switch and the amount of push I need on the pedal to return the reading to zero doesn't even move the arm in the switch...it barely even nudges the linkage on the switch but something is causing the reading to come back to 0

2. at full off and full on throttle the arm splits the copper plates at either end without sitting fully on either the first or the last plate is this normal?

oh and the reading does go up gradually from plate to plate


I feel like I'm getting somewhere but I don't know where,..is that possible?

i,m starting to agree i think your gonna find it in the microswitch in the V-glide, if you still have it jacked up you can try and activate the micro by hand and see if engages and runs every time.......if so than it might just be an adustment if not than ????............................................

First of all,..thanks to all for your input,..I know I'm a pain in the *** but at least I think I'm learning some things and I really appreciate it

I promise this in my last post for the night but I think that I stumbled on to something that might help somebody to help me through this:

I was cleaning up my tools and things and unhooking the boat batteries from the pack when I dropped a cable back on to the post that I removed it from and got a spark....****, I thought...hope I didn't screw anything up......I held the cable to the post and hit the accelerator....the **** thing ran, I let off...pushed again...it ran....did it again...it ran again...then one more time...no run this time...pulled the cable away and put back on......**** thing ran again and did so three times in a row until it decided to stop responding......now sometimes I have to hook up and remove the cable a few times but it runs repeatedly a few times each time before quitting....I even played in forward and reverse and got reponses from both


it seems that something is resetting or doing something when I remove the power and return it and now that I think of it....ever since the beginning I seemed to get positive responses from it more so from the plugging and unplugging of the charger than anything else because I never really was at a lost for voltage across the pack

Think Im going back to gas powered engines to play with


After I beat this problem first, of course!

Oh, by the way, I did play with the micrswitch in the v glide by pushing with my finger and got positive response from the solenoid each and every time
