Generally these motors have some heat issues that are compounded by regen braking. I have been told by PQ to remove Regen on all controls used with their motors.
I'm surprised it has lasted this long with such a serious problem. Controller damage from thermal shut down can be accumulative. Get the controller checked out and reprogrammed ASAP.
If it's possible you might want to pull the motor and have it tested also. 1 yr of running with a heat problem could have taken a toll on motor and control.

When you get it back together do the touch test..... Touch every connection after warming it up a bit, I had this problem also other than I never ran it hot enough to shut down..... I found 3 of my connections was not a perfect fit that meaning the ring terminal was 1/4'' bigger than the stud it fit over... I know that doesn't seem like it would make a difference but my controller barley gets what I would consider warm now. Also I check tightness on all battery conections almost daily, and dont know why but I can get a small turn on them just about every time.... Repeat! Check all connections for PERFECT FIT!!

Heres another thing that helped with cooling things down, like I said b4 get a perfect fit on everything even the bolts you use to connect wires to controller make sure the bolt fills the hole and where you have too make 2 connections on 1 controller lug use flat washer then terminal flat washer nut flat washer terminal.... this pic is a little blurry but you can see what I'm talking about

Default Re: FSIP controller issue UPDATED-IQ-SERIES CONVERSION

Well, here is whats going on, I sent the controller back to FSIP, they looked it over, gave it a clean bill of health, upgraded the firmware, and reloaded the stock shunt motor field mapping.

I am in the process of converting the cart over to series and using a contactor instead of the FnR, so parts will be coming in over the next couple weeks, I just need to decide on who's motor to use, and what charger to get, as I will also be ditching the OBC also

I want to thank some of the members here for help on this( you know who you are)
