Sounds like the clutch is going out and belt is not grabbing. Could be a belt issue or Clutch
Sorry, I looked up wrong model apparently. I will OPT OUT, as I do not know about electric motor, only gas. Hope another expert can help you in this matter
I See it is electric cart, not gas, so it has no (gas ) pedal. Pead just controls throttle switch. I need the year model of the cart. Located near the passenger side glove box. Will be letter followed by numbers.. L099 would be 1999 model. Does the motor sound like it continues to run when the cart shutters to a stop? If so, the drive motor coupler, between the motor and the transaxle could be stripped.
1997 model, I would feel the drive motor and if the motor is running, remove it and check the drive coupler.
Will the cart roll? Brakes are not locked? Do you have a voltmeter to test voltage at the solenoid? Do you have 36 volts to each side of the solenoids cable connections? Does the charger come on and charge when attached?
6 volts on the large terminals on the solenoid?Has to have 36 volts! One cable to solenoid, comes direct from the posiitve end of the battery pack.?? Here is basic diagram.below.
Does the charger come on when applied? Do you hear the solenoid click when the pedal is pressed? Can you jump across the solenoids cable terminals and see if cart will run?
Check the voltage at he drive motor, it should have 36 volts on both the A 1 and A2 terminals, The field terminals change with the controller for speed.
You keep coming up with volts that are below 36 volts. A 36 volt battery pack , fully charged should be close to 39 volts.???
I would attach the charger and test battery voltage before and with it attached, to be sure it is charging and let it charge over night. We can continue this tomorrow after battery voltage is above 36 volts.
So it looks like motor could be bad. Did you run continuity test before removing it?
motor has no bearing on the drive end, so it can't be run out of the cart. Here is an Ezgo site that has motor test. Scroll down the opening page past the manuals to get to the troubleshooting section.
I have NOT opted out!
