just replaced batteries and solinoid....cart now runs but take off speed is crazy slow. Now my cart , on a full charge, doesnt have enough power to pull itself up a small hill...and i live in south GA...there are n hills. could this be the speed controller goin bad. cart is a 1999 G-16
All batteries are showing 6.2 volts. and all batteries are wired right. The cart didnt run like this before the battery change. Once the cart gets goin it will run great...it just is SLOW on take off. almost as if it has no tourque.
I too, doubt it's the controller that is causing your problem.
It's always a good idea to change the battery cables when you do a battery change. They can build up some internal resistance.
Do any of the cables or connections get hot after driving the cart?
New batteries take about 25 recharge cycles before they come up to their full potential.
What is your total pack voltage after a charge and rest for at least an hour?
It needs to be 38.2v or better and the individual batteries need to be 6.4v or better.
Weird how all the batteries had 6.2v and then 1 had 3.8v. Replacing that battery should do the job.
If you haven't replaced your battery cables, this would be a good time. Keep us in the loop with the outcome.
