Wire very hot to A2 port on motor
 
What would cause the wire from solenoid to motor port A2 be very hot to melt wire? plus i have noticed at full speed it feels like it starts to pull back or sputter in speed?

the wire is brand new 4guage...2000 48v CC DS
the wire on the other side of same solenoid going to controller is older would that cause it?

possible, but like i said in most cases its loose or loose/dirty.... your speed might have been from wire for some reason coming loose and effecting speed until it just melted............................8)

The wire itself could be a problem. You need to use welding cable. It's much better for your application. However, you should also read my response to this same question in your other thread. This is a duplicate post.

Talk to ScottyB about making you some cables from either 2 or 4 gauge welding cables. He solders all of the ends and never crimps. Crimping isn't near as good as the solder joints.
