I have a 2009 EZGO RXV. It started running like the brake

Customer Question

i have a 2009 EZGO RXV. It started running like the brake was partially on. Now, it won't run at all. When you turn the key to F or R it lunges forward about 4 inches and stops. A beeping sound is constant. I can move the switch to N and the other switch to TOW but it will NOT roll. I can push the accelerator when in F or R and it won't move. It is fully charged. It is totally locked up. What's wrong?

Brake on drive motor is not releasing. Unbolt it from the drive motor and lay it back, to see if cart will roll and drive.

Brake has to have 48 volts to release.
