New Batteries- Speed Loss
 
Club Car DS, I Just replaced the Batteries and went to 4 gauge Wires. On the initial drive the Cart drove normal for a couple hundred yards then goes into a slow and steady speed mode?? I believe the Cart went around 12MPH now it seems to be around 2-3 MPH. the Batteries I purchased are 190amp batteries if this matters.

Welcome to BGW!

Did you charge these new batteries yet? New batteries rarely have a good charge on them when purchased.

I Have. I did a full charge hoping it was the problem. It wasn't. Any other ideas?

Hmmm, Sounds like this could be the problem. Let me do the Test and see.

Re check your cables make sure all batteries are connected in series.

I did the Test. No Braking or Beeping from the Cart. It just rolled to a stop. Sounds like this could be the issue. Is there anything I should know before changing the Speed Sensor?

Sounds like your speed sensor is bad. I have never personally replaced one, but I have heard it's two screws and a pigtail...:thumbup:
