Default Club Car tech has E-Z-GO question.

I was at a friend's house today trying to help diagnose his 1993 E-Z-GO. It's got plenty of voltage, but it doesn't have power to climb a speed bump. It's so weak that when you put two people in it, it won't even go.. No Voltage drop... checked that... I'm thinking it's a potentiometer or controller problem. What's the procedure for checking the potentiometer and controller on these cars?

0-5k pot. Blk and white wires from controller. 0 ohms at rest with a smooth rise to 5k at WOT.
If it's a stock Curtis controller go to the Curtis website. The manuals are there along with testing procedures.

These carts are notoriously slow ..... but it should keep going even with 2 fat boyz in it

Maybe some very worn bushings.... if the pot checks out

Yeah... I know they are. I used to have three of them as kids growing up. That's actually where I learned golf cars like I do. Then I got a job at a Club Car dealer when I was 18 and I've been there ever since and forgotten most everything about the E-Z-GO World... Thanks everyone for your help.

Actually no not yet... I haven't had a chance to get back over there yet. But I'll let you know when I do.
