Default G16 Controller?

Picked up a free 99 G16. I was told that the cart ran fine then started slowing down, then died, then sat in my father in laws barn for a year.

I found a broke connection on one of the motor winding studs. Checked the batteries, charged them fully, now I get a faint buzz at the motor and the cart wants to move but doesn't go. Checked the thottle postion and it ohms out correctly. I can jump the motor directly and the cart wheels move fast. Jumped the motor to move the cart to my garage and it moved quickly like a normal cart does. All connctions are cleaned up, no arcing or bad wires per meter.

I think I've narrowed it down to the controller, anything else I should check before dropping $$$ for an Alltrax?

Thanks-

Thinking of going either a Alltrax AXE 4844 or a 4855, possibly a 4845 if it will work.

Good deal Panic, don't know a thing about battery cars. But I love to hear stories of cars being brought back from dead!!
Whats the difference between a G16 elect. and a G19 elect?

I think the G19 is 48v while the G16 is 36v.

Picture from the lifted section.

Whooh! Panic, nice car! You've done a nice job. And your right, I rebuilt a G19 for a buddy, and it was a 48 volt. I forgot about that.
