Default no reverse at first when it rains then it dies completely after awhile

I have a 2005 club car ds 48volt cart that will not go in reverse when it rains out. At first it will only go forward but after a little while longer riding around it loses all power. some have new fwd and rev switches and others have new controllers. i can not figure this problem out it seems to have no rhyme or reason to me. thanks for your help

Is it a problem with more than one cart?
Some have new F&Rs?

Maybe the micro-switches are getting wet? Are your solenoids clicking when the carts won't go?
Are the Alltrax LED lighting up green when the carts wont go?

yes the solenoid clicks and i'm 90% that the controller still blinks. i will have to double check next time one dies might happen again today.

It is a strange problem.....the controller does the actual directional switching and so it is either the signal to switch (Rocker switch) or the controller. I think?

these carts are ds they have the lever forward and reverse switch which reverses the polarity to the motor. i believe your thinking of the president carts.
