Customer Question
2003 EZ Go TXT...

2003 EZ Go TXT (PDS) 36V Sometimes will not reverse after the switch on the dash is pushed. The reverse warning is not sounding at the time also.

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on?

I just bought the cart used a few days ago so I can't say.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 electric?

TXT (PDS) is all I know

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I will try myself first.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that is it.

Swap the two wires on the f/r switch, and see if problem stays same or changes to other direction. If it changes, replace the switch. If not, problem is not at switch but at controller. Look for loose wires or bad connections.
