Customer Question

2004 ez go that runs fine for awhile, but after it has run awhile or the pedal has been depressed a lot it fails to run forward, most of the time you can run in reverse for a minute or two and then it will run in foreward again. Any ideas?

Where is the forward /reverse switch? On the dash or behind the knee? If on dash, the controller makes the directional change. If it is the big switch behind the knee, the f/r switch makes directional change.
