Default controller repair ?

Found this on Ebay. Just wondering if anyone has ever sent their controller in to have it fixed and what do you guys think about giving this a try?

They used to tell me that the oats are always a little cheaper once they have been run through the horse a time or two.

Are you speaking from experience? What was the problem? They have 100% feedback, so it seems that people seem to be happy with the service.

Your 1995 Medalist will end up with a repaired 23 year old controller with a couple new components and all the rest the same age as the ones that failed, so they may fail in near future considering they probably have the same MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) rating as the components that have already failed.

Also, the add says they repair Curtis 1204 and 1205 controllers, your cart has a Curtis 1206.

I sent them a message and they will also repair my 1206 controller, but what you said makes sense and I understand that it's only a matter of time before other components inside my controller start to fail. I want the SR 48400 or SR 48500 with 400 amp solenoid, but I'll also need a HD F/R switch and 2 gauge cables. Between all that stuff and new batteries, I'm looking at over $1,500. If I can get my cart up and running for $125 plus batteries right now, I think it makes sense. I have a tough decision to make.

If you have a 1206 you can find a working used one for dirt cheap if you are just trying to get running again.

Can you post a picture of the bad controller? 4 bar 1206? Pretty sure you can replace that with a plentiful 3 bar with a new cable running from the origin of the two cables going to A2

Yes, it's a 4 bar 1206. I have a WTB on this site and still haven't found one. If it's that plentiful, I should have found one by now. Any help would be greatly appreciated

You know you don't have to do it all at once. Do it in steps. I think that's how most people do it.
