My EZ go cart goes full speed backwards but only slowly

Customer Question

My EZ go cart goes full speed backwards but only slowly forward. If I run it backwards for a few minutes it will then go forward full speed. Ideas?

Where is the F/R switch, on dash or at the knee?

Dash

So the f/r directional change is through the controller. So either the controller is bad, or the drive motor has problem. Swap the wires on the f/r switch and see if it changes the direction problem. If it does, motor is ok, and problem is going to be the controller.
