Default Controller replace question

If you replace the stock controller with an upgrade on a 2000 pds will the upgrade have the j2 connector for the performance options?

I have an 01 pds with an altrax dcx400, they are programable. There is no option plug. My cart will now do 38-39 kph.

thanks. I will be going to the upgrade soon. Did you replace the wires, solenoid and motor also? Where did you get the controller?

Hey Gamer, When upgrading to a DCX 400 you should change your wiring to 4 Gauge instead of the stock 6 Guage. Also make sure you upgrade the wires going to the controller, not just the battery cables, also the little small one going from the solenoid to the B+ terminal on the controller. My experience has been that the stock solenoid works just fine on that application. Your stock PDS motor will be fine also. Remember when purchasing the DCX 400 that it also needs the PDS adapter harness and make sure the place you purchase it from knows it is for a PDS. The DCX 400 also is used on the DCS cart. It is a programmable controller and the field map for the PDS is different than the DCS so it needs to be programed correctly. Also the PDS adapter harness you will notice has no plug in for the speed sensor coming from your stock motor. Don't fret, the sensor is no longer needed with this controller. Hope this helps you. Bill

I did upgrade the wires to 2gauge and changed the solinoid for a wr586 200 amp. I found the stock wires and solinoid got to hot. The wires I made myself and the rest of the parts I got from a suplier local to me.
