Default G29 electric regenerative braking question

I pulled my transaxle out of my G29 at one point, and in my haste I forgot to unplug the 3 wire connector to the motor for the regenerative braking and run-away control ( the same plug some tell you can 'gain a little speed by disconnecting' ). The plug pulled itself apart as I lowered the transaxle during removal. Once I had everything back together, I plugged it all back in. I'm just now curious if I damaged the wires either on the harness or inside the motor housing. Is there an easy test to determine whether regenerative braking and/or run away control is working? I did search around a little and couldn't find this information. Thanks in advance for your help.

Easiest way to tell if the tach sensor is working is this.. After driving the cart, try to push it around (parking brake not locked) , if it beeps at you and tries to stop itself from rolling, its working perfect.

Ok I got a question about the Regenerative braking. I unplugged it today and definitely noticed the acceleration increase. It actually freaked my wife a little when she drove the cart when she got home and she wanted to know what I did to it. I also saw that id did gain about 2 mph difference. It went from max 12-13 to 14-15. I did notice though a skip in as we were driving that it did not do before . Any idea why its doing that now? I plan to plug it back in tomorrow to see if the skip goes back away. Thanks for the help!!!!

Stock controller Sepex yamahas drive "funky" without the tach sensor, the only fix is "plug it back in".
