Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I can not put the cart in drive or reverse and it move, the cart won't move at all. But as I press down on the paddle to accelerate you can hear the motor running.

If you raise the rear wheels and turn them by hand do you hear anything unusual? If not, the drive motor coupler may be stripped, letting motor turn, but not driving the transmission You would have to slip the motor back to check the coupler.
