Sounds like a bad MCOR to me based on symptoms.

Go to Monitor Menu, Turn Keyswitch on. Cycle the Go Pedal and see if the "Foot Input" responds to your pedal. It should turn on while depressed, and off when released. A bad MCOR will never allow FOOT INPUT to turn on due to a bad internal microswitch.

I am having this same problem on my 2010 Precedent. I have a Curtis Handheld as well and when the pedal is down and cart running the "foot Input" in on. When it stops running and the pedal is still pushed down the "foot input" reads off. It is very intermittent.

If your foot input is turning off when your pedal is still on the floor you've got a bad MCOR. No doubt about it.

Tahoe dawg....I know you are very knowledgeable about this sort of issue. I am almost having the same issue except my 07 precedent that I put a rebuilt 400 amp Curtis controller and one of scotty b's heavy duty 200amp solenoid in, does it when I first get on the cart and push the pedal. Then it's almost like it's getting impulse power. The cart will shake,so you let off the pedal and push it again and it goes....it's in and out, but after it goes it usually doesn't stop or cut off. Please help a rookie out.

Sounds like throttle fluctuation of the MCOR, a different problem, but still an MCOR problem.

Thank you. So I have to replace? or is it repairable?
