Default ez go trouble

I bought a ez go cart today I am not sure what year but it seems to be a newer body style this is the first golf cart I have ever been around much less owned the trouble I am haveing is about 20 minutes into riding it it starts smelling like something electrical is burning and it loses power I can stop and let it sit for a minute and it takes off like nothing is wrong for a few minutes then it does it again any advise would be great oh and it is lifted with bigger tires but they are only 23 inches tall

Sounds like something is overheating. Does it have 4 gauge cables? Upgraded controller? Newer batteries? TXT? PDS? More info is needed

BTW - did the seller fill you in on any possible issues?

2 of the cables are 4 awg the rest look factory(or smaller) it has 5 trojan batteries and 1 interstate not sure what txt or pds means there is a picture of the cart on craigslist under lakeland florida it says fort mead if a picture will help you I asked the guy how long ot would run on a full charge and he told me 3-4 hrs with no trouble so I will be trying to get in touch with him but if it is a small problem I want to keep it I really like the cart but if it is a big problem I want to know so I can get my money back or something

Sounds like a lifted PDS cart. Where is the forward / reverse switch? What did you pay for it? I'm in Dallas, I'm not searching craigslist to find your cart!

the forward and reverse lever is between the driver and passenger I think it is a txt I was just on your web site and the headlights that are on my cart are the 9601 part # I will try to get you as much info as possible but I don't know where to look for model #s or anything I paid 2000 for it

OK - Now is there a toggle switch on the controller cover, next to the batteries and under the passenger side seat bottom?
