Was the cart in tow the entire time you were messing with wires?

He stated he drove the cart, so it was not in tow mode.
If you mean you mis connected one of the large cables on the control then yes the controller could be damaged.

Solid state devices do not like to see reverse voltages even for a mSec! Unless there is a fuse to protect them, they go POP!

Where does the yellow wire go to?

FYI the new SPM controls (Alltrax) have reverse polarity protection.
