Default 06 Precedent brake problem

Help, my precendent suddenly started having brake issues. They grab hard when applied and do not release for about a second after i remove my foot from the pedal. I have tried adjusting the brakes without any success. It also beeps at me like it does when it not enough throttle is applied when coasting. I think it may be more electrical than mechanical. Ie an issue with the regenerative brake system. Thoughts?

Thank you.

No, nothing has been done to it since I bought it 2 years ago.

does it charge properly? could be a OBC problem
Does it run at full speed? could be a motor speed sensor problem

It goes to full charge but seems to deplete faster than it used to. It had new batteries two years ago when I bought it. It doesn't seem to be as fast as it used to be but I attributed that to the batteries being a couple of years old and draining faster than they used to.

do the push test, key on in gear and push your cart by hand if it rolls freely replace speed sensor if it tries to hold back sensor ok.....what you decribe sounds like a speed sensor gone..........................................

Can anyone give me detailed instruction on how to replace the speed sensor? I also understand there are two different styles of sensors.

Thank you in advance.

Don't know much about the Precedent but does it have a run/tow switch ? If so, I would put it in tow and see if you can roll it. If no, brake problem, if yes, see above

. . . there are two different types of motors, each with it's own type of speed sensor and they are not inter-changeable . . . ADC motor and GE motor . . . ADC motors have speed sensor on back of motor housing, mounted with 2 screws holding the speed sensor unit onto motor housing . . . GE motors have speed sensor on back of motor housing, press-fitted into motor housing . . .
