The 96 just wont go forward or reverse without smashing down on the pedal.. As you can imagine, there is quite a jolt when it goes from nothing to WOT instantly..

thanks again..

A loose connection can cause that kind of problem also. Don't cost much the fix. Check every wire and cable you have.

Just got off the phone with the shop we sent the "in laws" cart to... They said it is a "regen 1" and do not want to work on it....... They did say it could be any number of things and didn't want to start throwing parts at it and "nickle and diming " us to death..

With good news like that,,, any idea what could cause the **** thing not to
go with out stomping on the pedal??

Lastly, since I picked this **** thing up (and will most likely have to eat it... ), do you guys think it would be a candidate for a motor/controller swap?

Thanks

My Regen 1 does not snap your head back even when you "mash down" on the accelerator - in fact the acceleration is fairly gradual. So if your cart is really leaping off the line when you floor it - it points to the controller as the cause. After you mash-down-on-it can you release the pedal a bit and cruise normally?

You can change the throttle response on the controllers. It just depends on how you have your controller programed.

. . . what type of pie shaped box do you have under the driver's seat? Does it have 3 micro switches or a wiper arm inside of it?

Nope! You cannot change the throttle response on Regen 1 controllers (except at factory) and its unlikely his old Tee shaped black controller was set to neck-snap on start! That's why I asked whether it could cruise or can only barrel down the road at WOT. It is a really good question whether he has a pie shaped box under the seat, or a pot-box under the floor like me.

If your going to spend the time and money to replace the controller I would install a after market.

No real choice - Regen 1 controllers are no longer manufactured or sold (by OEM) and haven't been for quite a few years. There is one place I know of that will repair them for $100 (swap). Second option would be to convert to Regen 2 (about triple the cost of above). That's assuming it IS the controller - first he will need to do tests to confirm that.

Regen 1 is a very unique beast - read about it HERE. His options for upgrading and repairing are somewhat limited (financially anyway).
