Default Motor Break fail? 2016 RXV

Need some advise team, I had Bob Boyce come out and program my cart this week in TX and the first time driving it post upgrade I believe the motor break failed. Cart stopped in this tracks on then road and wouldn't move.

I talked to Bob, he advised it was the motor break and I removed it and pushed the cart home. The motor break smells burnt, event a day later.

I removed a Matrix #617766 motor break; pic attached. In my haste last night I ordered this from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but now realized it doesn't have a wire harness. Can I open it and wire in the old one?

Any advise would be appreciated.

Trevor

No need to "open it up", your existing wiring should have the male plug that connects to the black plastic female socket on the side of the brake housing.

Yes, and you can't do anything else with the socket, it's part of the ring coil inside the brake. As mentioned, just put the plug in!

1) DO NOT over tighten bolts
2) CLEAN MOUNTING SURFACES and motor lug
3) Do not unplug or plug brake connector with key on or in "N" ( Key off while PLUG'n)
4) Brake should be ENERGIZED (cart in tow mode - key to "N" ) while brake bolts tightened.

Put the cart on flat ground, chock wheels (both of these are very important). Tow position, key off, leave batteries hooked up ( you will need power during re-install.) Unplug the brake, remove 3x 10mm bolts on brake. Remove brake. Clean mounting surface on motor. Hang new brake on armature, push cart just slightly to point plug towards top to line up holes. Start all three bolts (just barely). Plug brake in, put cart in neutral (this should unlock the brake, don't let the cart roll away).
Tighten bolts evenly to 10 n-13 INCH POUNDS, if you don't have a inch-torque wrench, tighten the bolts enough to fully compress the lock washers, not much more.. Turn key off, tow/run back to run, turn key on, test drive, celebrate with beer
