Default Still Need Some Help With a Problem Cart Please

I am still having a problem with a finicky cart. Sometimes, not always, when you push the pedal, you get nothing. You can release and push again or maybe 2 or 3 tries and then it will go. It will also stop sometimes in the middle of running perfectly. You can again release the pedal and re-engage it and it will go. Somedays it will give me no problems at all. I have new batteries with 51.5 volts, new controller, new solenoid, and new speed sensor. What could be the problem? Could it be something in the motor itself or the vglide switch. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here's my specs: 2005 Club Car DS Elec IQ 48 Volt Regen

Thanks in Advance!

the attached wiring diagram will give you some test points .

switch tow/run to tow first
Disconnect the negative lead off your battery pack before using an ohm meter to test .

for instance an ohm meter between #6 and #10 on the controller connection will test for the micro switch closing when you step on the gas

Thanks I'll check that! From reading around on the forum, looks like it might could also be the pre-charge resistor on the solenoid. I'll check that to see if it is loose or broken and I'll report back.

Do the test that ForBruce was discussing earlier in the thread. That will test to make sure the micro switch in the MCOR is closing when the accel pedal is depressed. If it's not, replace it. Part number 102101101

also when you do your testing you might remove that 16 pin connector off the controller so you don't get any "BACKFEED READING" from the controller.

the micor (microswitch) is located under the floorboard. you have to remove the pedal assembly when replacing it... but you probably can just do "DAWGS" test with the paper clip without having to remove it .

OK Thanks - I'm going to go ahead and order a micro-switch just in case since their only about 5 bucks. I need the three terminal one for a 48 volt correct?

OK I think I'm with you now! If I determine i have a bad switch then I need a new $150.00 MCOR part # 102101101?

By the time I replace everything on this cart I believe I could have bought a new one cheaper! Sure is an expensive hobby!

Thanks again for the help - I'll report back!

Yes . . that part number is for the MCOR . . Shop around, check prices on site sponsors . . $150 may be a little high . . when you call site sponsors, let them know you saw their ad on BGW . . several offer discounts for forum members . . .
