alright guys, latest update on my broke EZ-GO. EVERYTHING is fried. Controller, motor, batteries...everything. My friend tried to put a good controller in it and it smoked it too. From what he says it looks like about $1200 to fix it [cry]. And I only paid 2 g's for the cart originally [really cry] ! I'm saving my pennies for an upgrade system to swap out the re-gen crap. Anyone got parts I can come across to fix my cart ? If so, please reply. Thanks for any help in advance, CHRIS

I don't see how some water and mud would ruin your batteries and motor. I have heard of carts being sunk in ponds and revived. Start with a good wiring diagram and go over every inch of wire and every connection, every micro switch, reed switch, just every thing. Charge your batteries with 12v charger and then follow the current. There are ways to test your motor on this site. I hope your friend is not your cart mechanic. Good luck.

But it does sound like a good excuse to upgrade everything. Go higher voltage.

no, the guy who got the cart stuck is not my cart mechanic. The guy that checked everything is very competent with golf carts. He has about 35 rebuilds under his belt at the moment. What fried everything was that the cart was completely immobilized, not being able to move at all forward or backward and the kid kept trying to move the cart back and forth to get it unstuck. Finally the cart quit doing anything. By the way which took 2 men and my 22 hp John Deere tractor to get it out of the field. Well it was doing something, it was hot as hell and you could smell something very burnt. So...anymore suggestions.

Your best bet would be to buy a compleat upgrade kit that includes everything not sure what the ez go for but $1200 for a cc. That way everything matches.

okay, I got my problem solved. I purchased the speed and torque kit from Buggies Unlimited for a lifted EZ-GO. This kit will convert the re-gen crap to a series type. New speed and torque motor, heavy-duty solenoid, all new heavy-duty cable kit, 488 amp controller, 250 ohm resistor, heavy-duty forward/reverse switch...the whole 9 yards. My friend said the kit arrived yesterday so I should be doing wheelies by this weekend. LOL
