RXV has the electric brake on the drive motor. I'm thinking the brake is not releasing! See if it does anything!

The brake does release I can push it so the brake is off. Any other ideas?

Does the charger come on? It makes a voltage check before it clicks on.

When did it last run? Any unusual circumstances?

Do you hear the brake release?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Most RXV problems are low voltage, caused by bad battery or cable connections, are the batteries original?

Does the charger come on? It makes a voltage check before it clicks on. I think so I hear a clicking when I turn on the key. Some times if I turn the key to forward and then off then back to forward again I can get it to go. This does not work all the time.When did it last run? Any unusual circumstances? about two week ago no unusual circumstances.Do you hear the brake release? the brake will not set. when it is parked I can move it.Most RXV problems are low voltage, caused by bad battery or cable connections, are the batteries original?
no the batteries are 2012 and I have replaced one of the cables because it was bad.Do you think it might be the Run/Tow Switch or the Key Switch?

Charger ok? What does voltmeter show at brake on motor? Brake should always be on! As it is spring applied and released when the power is applied.???

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Keyswitch or tow/run switch can cause similar problem.

What does voltmeter show at brake on motor? Brake should always be on! As it is spring applied and released when the power is applied.??? 24.6
is there any way to test the tow/run switch and the key switch?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

You say 24,6 volts? Should be 48 voltls!

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Check keyswitch the same way, has to have 48 volts.
