Unhappy Intermittent Power Loss

I have a 95DS Club Car that loses power intermittently. It takes up to 5-6 minutes for it to start up again,then it drives normally. In the last 16 months it has had a new motor,controller,V drive, F&R switch, ignition switch, all micro switches,batteries & cables,solenoid & wiring replaced. After the last trip to the local Cart shop it worked fine for 6 months then the intermittent problem started again. I don't want to take it back to them for more guesswork. Any ideas?

Welcome to BGW! Is this a 48 or 36 volt cart?

Are you sure its a 36v because you say it has a new controller and 36v carts don't have controllers ?

The first wiring diagram on the stickies is for a 36v solid state controller...
I looked at that diagram for a few minutes and you pretty much replaced every part on the electrical system....
I would say it sounds like overheating, most likely the controller, but can you give us more clues. When you experience the problem, You just wait 5-6 minutes or do you press the pedal, move the F&R, move the key, etc...
If it happens often enough, that is good for troubleshooting. Have You tested anything while the problem was occurring?

Most of my work with carts has been on these early 36 volt controller carts, and I have to agree it sounds like a controller getting hot.

Could also be a solenoid faililing or "dropping out.". During the times when it won't move, do you hear the solenoid click?

Replying to all-----------Yes,it is a 36 Volt Cart.Overheated controller sounds good but problem occurs when cart has sat overnight or has just been run.
Holding pedal down,or not, key on & off, F&R switch back & forth, nothing seems to make a difference. Solenoid clicks & V Drive wiper arm movement is heard.
My wife has named this cart "Christine" and I have to agree it fits.

Thanks to all
