I would bet it's the controller going out on it.

OK, finally got to get them voltages off the 4 posts on the motor, I'm goint to take a guess that something is seriously screwed up, heres what i got:

A1: jumping between 48 and 49 volts, thats with key on/off and in F/R

A2: 49 Volts with key off
50 Volts with key on
43 Volts at full throttle

F1: 0 volts full speed in Reverse
15 Volts no throttle in reverse

F2: o volts full speed Forward
15 Volts no throttle in forward


** just a little side note, i drove the cart maybe 50 feet to get to the garage, and when i went to check the voltages the motor was hot to the touch

If the motor was hot to the touch only after 50 feet then something is definately wrong . How hot is hot? ..I have never seen a motor get hot that quick. Do you have another motor you can swap out? Those numbers for your feild dont look right to me....but then again its a regen and I really dont know much about those motors and controllers. I would think that it should have NO POWER going to the feild at 0 throttle. To me it would seem if you have power going to those terminals on the motor at 0 throttle the controller/solenoid is bad.

i'll try to explain the motors temp, it wasnt like hot that it could fry an egg or anything, but i wouldnt wanna keep my hand on it for mare than maybe 10 secs, and no, i dont have any motors to do a swap. if i can find a selonoid (i've think we got one round here somewhere) i'll swap the regan one out and see if it does anything.

Trapper,

The voltages are too high (and reverse) on F1 & F2, (& A2) compared to the voltages that I gave you from mine!!!!

Try to find the soleniod and swap that out first!!
(something tells me your contoller is on the fritz!)

Your motor sounds fine, it's just getting the wrong voltages... DON'T DRIVE IT!!!
(or you'll have to get a contoller & a motor!!!)





Quote:
You should read at least 48 Volts... key on or off, full throttle or not!

With the key on...

on the A2 lug, you should 48 Volts no throttle
and O Volts Full throttle! (tried it forward, but NOT reverse!)

on the F1 lug, you should read 0 volts no throttle, to 3.8 volts full throttle IN REVERSE ONLY!!!

the F2 lug will read the same in FORWARD ONLY!!!

(for the F1 & F2 lugs, you may see the voltages run up to 6 volts as your pressing down the "GO" pedal then drop down to 3.8v...
that seems to be what mine did, so it must be normal!)

if your A1 does not read 48 volts your batteries are not connected correctly

if your F1 & F2 lugs are not reading correctly, your controller may be bad...

Hey Lockman....does your golf cart still have regen braking or did you disable it?
