It's a trick question, like Jeopardy?
The answer is What's a DCS cart with a bad controller.

Seriously, look at the chart below and identify your drive system.... it's series or DCS?

Back to your other thread on the same question?

There are 3 options:
New OEM = most expensive 275 amp controller not suitable for modified carts
rebuilt OEM = same but up to 300 amps, still not suitable for anything more than golf course use. High failure rate with some rebuilders
Aftermarket 400 amp DCX Alltrax and HD solenoid = suitable for modified carts on 36-48v. 30% more torque and speeds up to 24mph.
That's what I would use.

swap the black and white #10g field wires and now you will have reverse, no forward. It is in the controller. Flip the TOW switch before doing any electrical work on your cart.

If the reverse beeper worked before you had problem, does it still sound when F/R is in R, even though cart goes forward?

If not, check for Battery Pack Voltage on Pin 4 (Org wire) of controller when F/R is in R.

You probably won't do any more damage to anything except the controller, but I'd carry a cell-phone with me if I ventured more than comfortable walking distance from home.
