Default 48v V glide club car runs slowly. Please help.

Hello. I have a 1999 DS 48v that has a f/r switch and 2 solenoids. The solenoid on the driver side has a large coil resistor. It is running very slowly. The voltage seems high. Four of the batteries are at 9.6v and 2 are at 9.7v. The pack voltage is 58.3. I tried to load test it by brake torquing it, and the voltage did not drop very much. I did not record the voltage drop. I did smell something burning when I did that. It may have been the coil. It has a v-glide that I removed and it appears to be making good contact, and nothing looks burned. Thanks in advance for any help.

It sounds like a regen1 cart?

It has the controller that is pictured where it says "regen 2".

ScottyB, your volt meters are for 36 or 48 correct?

These carts are hard to fix, they only made them for 1 or 2 years and they are misunderstood. However the controller out put should be measured the same as any other controller. Test leads on B- and M- . Step on the peddle you should initially get a full battery pack voltage reading and then it should decrease to 0 as the peddle is depressed.

The regen resistor coil is eliminated with some of the upgrade controllers like GE/FSIP. I would go that route if it needs to be replaced. They are available in 300 & 500 amp models

it sounds like your reagan solenoid isn,t working........its just a 48 volt solenoid with a resistor coil on top so you can try replacing the solenoid see if that cures it.............................................

Is that the one on the driver or passenger side?

It has full pack voltage on all 4 terminals on the solenoid on the passenger side without even pushing the throttle. which doesn't seem right to me.

the reagan solenoid is the one with the resistor coil mounted on top.......your main solenoid won,t have that coil..........................................

The coil gets hot. Does that tell you anything?
