Default 2000 DS 48 volt very slow

I have a 2000 48 volt series with the multi step wiper board that is very weak. It has new batteries, and the owner has replaced the batteries cables with new 1 gauge cables. Where do I need to start? Batteries are 51 volts, and do not drop any when you try go. I'm leaning towards the wiper board, but I don't know much about how to test it. Thanks in advance for any help of where to start.

It will just barely move forward, and will only try to go in reverse. I tried to check the v glide potentiometer. Best I could tell, it starts out around 2 ohms then goes to 0 when I press the pedal. Should be 5-0 correct?

If it's a 5k-0 ohm 48v. multi-step he lost one of the resistors in the chain.

That's what I'm thinking. Can I replace it with a new resistor? What are they, 1k each?

Thanks! This one is a 48v 3 wire system, so I need to check each resistor according to the 3 wire system till I find the bad one and replace it?

Thank you very much! I've changed a few MCORS, but this is the first multi step potentiometer that I've messed with. Learn something new every day!
