Cart runs in reverse
Today I stopped my 2006 Ezgo and when I started to go again my cart would only backup regardless of what position the switch is in forward or reverse. Any idea what would cause could this, could the forward/reverse switch be bad? Thanks for any help in advance.

Re: Cart runs in reverse
Welcome to BGW. You did not say which drive system you have. If the cart has a run/tow switch this is the way the controller fails. Swap F1 and F2 wires at the control and you will have Forward only until you can upgrade/replace the control with an Alltrax XCT

Re: Cart runs in reverse
Thanks Scotty. I think my cart is a PDS my cart does have a run/tow switch. I was going up a hill when I felt the cart lurch but kept going. When I stopped and tried to start off again is when I found it would only run in reverse regardless of the switch position. I had hoped it was the Forward/Reverse switch. Guess from your answer it is going to more then that.

Re: Cart runs in reverse
It's worth testing the switch but this is a common way these controls fail

Do you think it would be ok to run the cart like that until I can get a controller. I use it to go to work at my local golf course.

Re: Cart runs in reverse
When you flip the toggle FNR on the dash to R does the reverse buzzer come on?

Re: Cart runs in reverse
Yes the buzzer does come on.

No it does not.

Re: Cart runs in reverse
Like scottyb said, probably controller. If all you want is stock there are probably a few folks on here that have upgraded so you may could pick up a used one.
