Why dont you inspect the magnet in the speed sensor just to make sure it didn't break.

Thanks for the reply.

After checking a week ago the magnet was broke. I installed a new one yesterday.

The cart is only running 8-10 mph.

Starts strong for a few feet and dies. Replaced mcor and that is not the problem.

Whenever you disconnect the speed sensor and try to drive it this is what it will do: Start fine and slow way down after about 15 feet or so. Perhaps you have a broken wire and/or the speed sensor is not connected right?

So if the buzzer does sound but the cart does not try to stop itself can that still be the speed sensor?

Also, so you are saying he needs to look at the fault history and not look to see if the cart is throw a error code right then?

I beleive he said that he turned off the roll away feature. So does this need to be left on?
The rollaway feature can't be turned on and off. He needs to make the car fail and look in the current faults menu while the car is currently failing

Ok so hook up the computer and then drive some. Then that will throw the fault sensor?

It may. It depends on what's wrong. If it's a speed sensor fault, then yes it'll trigger it. If it's a bad MCOR it won't throw a fault code, but you can go to the MONITOR menu and watch the throttle frequency and make sure it responds to the foot pedal.... This is a common misconception with people using the IQDM machine. They think that just because there's a fault in the history that there is something wrong with it. They also think that just because there is nothing in the current fault menu that there are no faults. The "system faults" menu will only show faults that are currently happening. So the key is to make the car fail, and look at the menu while it's in failing state. That's the only way to narrow your problem down. Looking at the history is worthless.

Cool thanks. Right now I have told the dealer to concentrate on the speed sensor. I do think I will need batteries soon but not at this point.

Also, we have just put a new mcor on and it did not help.
