Customer Question

48 volt cart not moving have 48.9 volts going into and coming out of motor. when i turn on key and push pedal I here a little sqeek from the motor for just a few seconds, and i let it sit a few min and the same thing. I just replaced all the batteries because the charger I bought was wired backwards and reversed polarity on all the batteries, could this have damaged my motor?
