Default RXV Auto Brake Problem

RXV Auto Brake



Looks like I will be the one to burst the bubble.

I'm searching for others who are having problems with the new rkv auto-brake.

Our fleet of 60 have been in service since last Fall and they are just now exhibiting problems . . . specifically, the auto-brake is locking up. About a couple each day now.

Bummer.

Anyone else?

Since it is new technology, we have to share our experiences. The fix, whatever it will be, will be a new fix . . . for a new problem.

(guess we're the Guinnea pigs on this one)

Let's work together to find out what's wrong.

Welcome to the Forums, Cartboy!

I assume you are referring to the RXV carts by EZ-Go? Yours are the first problems like this I have heard of. Any info from EZ-Go?

need some more info. Is the car just going along and it then locks up? or it the car not releasing the brake? Taylor Dunn has had A/C cars out for some time with a similar brake system.

Yeah, I meant RXV, like in the topic line, not the RKV I typed in the body.

They are locking up as they are moving along, not failing to release after being parked.

Our E-Z-Go dealer is clueless, since this is a new problem.

We suspect it has something to do with our course being hilly, that the auto-brake is getting worked pretty hard. Most of the lockups have been on hilly holes, after going down a steep hill, but not all of them.

This is my day off, when I play in league at another course, so I don't know what happened today, but yesterday there were two. One was on a flat Par 5, which follows a downhill Par 4. The other was one that had locked up previously, unlocked, then locked up in the AM when we were staging it.

But, I don't want to blame it on the hills and rule anything/everything else out.

It is so frequent that yesterday I cut a 2 x 4 to wedge in to hold down the brake release lever, so we can tow them back in.

Obviously I'm new here, but speaking of typos, the Edit feature does not seem to be enabled for very long.

It normally takes me a few readings before I catch my errors, so . . .

Since I'm new here, and this was the first golf cart forum google brought me to, is this a forum that most in the industry use . . . are there others?
