Default Reverse and Forward switched around

Ok, I installed my new DCS Altrax 400 IQ on my 2006 Precedent, along with the Solenoid, and new wires. I was careful to do it all one wire at a time, referencing to the wiring diagram and the diagram I drew up prior to taking things apart. My only problem is when I put it in Forward, it takes off in reverse FAST. When I put it in Reverse, it goes Forward.

Is this a simple fix by switching around the Green and White main wires going to the motor?

Thanks for any help you guys can give this newbie!

The simplest fix is to just switch the Blue and Orange wire at the top of your AllTrax controller! Do not switch the green and white leads!

You can switch the blue and orange at the motor if you prefer, but the first suggestion takes about a minute to do.

The good news... now when you run over someone you don't like... just blame it on that darn Altrax Controller

You can program a slower throttle up rate and or a gentler throttle program... so you have a softer or more forgiving 1st 1/4 of the throttle.

Cool. Thanks Scottyb. I thought it may be because it is set up for a 5k-3 wire throttle and not a 0-5k. Which throttle type should I use?
