48 volt club car stutters, has new batteries
Hi, My name is XXXXXX, X'm going to try and help you with your problem.When you're pushing on the pedal is it stutttering then at any speed?And do you hear clicking repeatedly as it stutters?
It runs fine for 2-3 minutes, then starts stuttering like it is "missing" Let it set for a few minutes, runs fine for another minute
when it stutters, it does it at any speed. Never noticed the clicking. I dont think that it does
Most of the time when a cart does this it's a bad solenoid.They're about $30 and that 's what send power to the motor.Internally they carbon up and get to the point where they don't make a good connection. Then eventually they fail all together.I'd start with a new solenoid first.Then have your pedal switch tested. It's a rheostat type switch that goes from 5k ohms to 0 ohms at wide open. You can test that with an ohm meter.
Dont think it is the solenoid. The low voltage light goes off and on, even with the key off. Is that a clue?
No that would possilby indicate a bad key switch or controller.Have you tried holding the key over or switch it back and forth several times to see if that helps.
What is the controller? I am pretty knowledgeable about mechanical stuff, build my own race cars and motors, just dont know anything about carts.
The controller is the electrical module that tells adjusts the amount of power send to the motor. It's told how much to send by the food pedal switch the ohm test of 5k to 0 ohms verifies the foot pedal switch is good.When the pedal switch is activated the solenoid clicks on and the controller then controls the amount of power to the motor.So in that order if the solenoid is good and not clicking on and off. the pedal switch tests good, And you can verify the key switch is good then I'd be concerned about the controller.Those are a few hundred dollars so you want to test other compnents to make sure that's what's left because you can't test them.
