I don't really know. Is the connector identical to original or is it connected with an inline adaptor? If original the manual should help. Do you still have two solenoids and resistor coil? If so it hasn't been modified too much.

I'm not trashing your controller at all - heck, its newer than mine! And although I may be in a very small (maybe tiny) minority - my Regen 1 cart has proven to be a nice & reliable machine for my use....golf - and I would fix it if it broke. If your planning on modifying that cart for hill climbing or off road, or high speed with big tires - then it is definitely the wrong machine for that.

I'm afraid I just don't know anything about it - or what might have been modified when it was installed. Did you compare the circuit diagram from the manual I PM'd to you? Did you perform any of the troubleshooting steps in section 21A of the manual?

Did you find out if the all the original parts are still in the cart? You don't really know your controller sucks or not at this point - it could just as easily be the OBC circuit disabling it - so buying a replacement controller without at least some testing could be very frustrating (and expensive) for you.

Standard controllers (like DCX series) are NOT compatible - that I do know. If your controller has failed - you would need to buy something Regen 1 compatible like THIS

In fact - that might be the controller you've got. I think all Regen 1 controllers available now, use an adapter cable - did you check to see if you have one? If not - the manual will be EVEN MORE helpful.

Turning it from a Regen 1 into something else is well beyond my pay grade - I'm not that knowledgeable or capable. If you were to try, I suspect it would cost way more than whatever you would pay to replace the cart with something else.

If your keeping it - then its time to roll up your sleeves, open the manual and check things out as best you can.

In case it helps - a few years ago when my controller failed - I performed the tests from the manual and determined that it was the controller. I was on a different forum (this forum is much better but I didn't know about it back then). If you google "Probably speed controller (sigh)?" you'll find that thread. I did way-more-tests than truly necessary, but wanted to be sure it wasn't something else before replacing the controller.

You did say your solenoid clicks when you turn on the key (mine didn't when the controller failed) - so it is worth ruling out other causes first.
