possible but i would really try and eliminate everything else 1st just to make certain and to be cost effective...........i would rather spend 40 or 50 dollars verus 300 dollars......................................

Ok next thing to check would be the voltage input output at the solenoid. with the pedal depressed you should have 36 on both sides. If you have less than that on the out side it would give the sypmtoms of low battery voltage. If this is the case. A 15 buck solenoid and your in business

i checked the volt drop across the sol. and both sides read 36.72 and no change w/ pedal fully depressed. any more ideas?

OK Next. I'm guessing that your solenoid is equipped with a diode that connects each side(large terminals). Remove this diode and try the same volt test again. With the diode gone you should have the voltage on the side nearest the batteries. You should have the voltage on the other side (left) only when the microswitch on the accelerator pedal is activated. While you have that cover off go ahead and check for an open field in your motor. On the controller you will see a black wire and a white wire labeled F1 and F2 pull these wires off and run an ohms test on the wires. They run through the field coils in your motor. You should have good continituity.

Check the Forward/Reverse micro switches on the cam. Make sure they are activating. They are the weak link in this cart in my opinion.

i checked the micro switches and they work. i also ohmed the blk& white wires they are 000.5 and the sol. voltage with the diode removed is also correct.

Ok... As Shadowman, SP-Electronics stated earlier in this post. 999 times out of 1000 it is voltage related. But since we have determined that it is not voltage to the controller. And the fields seem to be fine in the motor, but before you spend money on a controller, try one more thing. Lift the rear of the cart and put it on jack stands and press the accelerator. This removes the load from the motor. If it runs ok like this, put a brick or something on your accelerator pedal and run it while checking the cables that run to the motor for heat build up. We know that the correct voltage is getting to the controller, so last thing to check is the cables running to the motor. Also see if the controller itself is overheating.

Have you checked the ITS switch under the drivers side floor board? It maybe out of adjustment are full of water mud. It may be cracked. Just some thoughts.
