You have a DCS cart and if you had a big arc then you did have the run tow switch on which could have ruined your controller they the DCS controllers are very sensitive but try this troubleshooting guide http://www.studmonkeyracing.com/forums/dcs.pdf

Talking Re: howdy

checking the wiring diagrams none shows the reverse switch on. I took it for a ride yesterday. Forward works great reverse works great as long as you don't mind going forward all the time. I am a electrican by trade and I don't see how the controller can reverse the polarity to reverse the dc motor. but it must. Thanks again for all yalls help
