Default Re: 2000 club car with brand new batteries, will not hardly go at all!

You said in the post after you changed batteries it went slower than before right? It was slow before the battery change and it got worse right?

yea, it was very slow before too, i would say at least half as slow as any cart i have ever rented at the golf course. i dont really know what else to do, the local cart repair shop told me they were about 3 weeks behind so i may be screwed for a while!

Motor brush could be possible but the "slower now" more than before doesn't make sense. If anything it should be a little faster...even though its slow.

it might not ness. be slower now, i dont have enough room to let it pick up alot of speed but now that i think of carts i have rode before, they got up to speed fairly quick. but when i say slow, i mean like a fast paced walk slow

Thats why I thought the not "getting up to speed" part was being caused by the weak feild voltage.

The brushes....I don't know any other way to check the brushes other than pulling the motor off. 4 nuts, a few bolts and it's off. Have to slip it a few inches one way to slip off the shaft.

Once you get it off you will have to pull 2 bolts that hold the can on. (the outside part of the motor) then you can see the brushes real easy. Once you get those bolts out you may have to tap it with a hammer to come loose. Then it will slip right off and you can see the brushes. Do yourself a favor and mark te cables where they go unless they are already marked....that way when you go back togeher with it you won't have any trouble.

Just a reminder of caution: do not let any of the studs connecting the power cables to the motro turn! They can easily spin if not held tight (it takes two wrenches) and break off the connection inside the motor!

i have a friend of a friend who owns an electric motor repair shop, i just got word from them that the motor checked out ok, but they did say the brushes had some unusual groves in them, they said the conductive carbon dust inside could cause some problems, they are gonna straighten it out for me. if the problem still exists, is there someting small we are missing? new batteries, new controller, good motor, what else is there? what exaclty does the resistor coil do? what i cant understand is the motor is getting good voltage, does anyone think its the grooves in the brushes not getting all the nessessary voltage to proper parts?
