Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 1 month ago

You are being foolish, the only thing that changes the cart from forward to reverse is the fr switch, and yours looks t be badly corroded. Get a new switch and cart will go in both directions!

you must not allow to insult. I asked for help, you do not give it to me. if all you can say is this ...
why are my connections different from the drawings you have? I wanted to know this. but you insult me.
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 1 month ago

Sorry, did not intend to offend, I just know how it works, and your switch is corroded, and the switch causes the problem. My sight is not what it was, so seeing your wiring is not easy for me.

swap A1&A2, but my A2 go to solenoid (without resist-the last on left looking from rear)
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
are you sure? I wll do this but if I burn something
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 1 month ago

You can swap the leads at the motor, and it will not harm anything. Just remove your negative battery cable before moving the positive cables.

the only thing not correct its: the rear buzzer dont beep
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
sorry. the only thing not normal its: going rear buzzer dont beep
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 1 month ago

Buzzer won't beep because it is on the other wire now. Get you a new switch and put the wires back in the correct position on the drive motor, and you will have a running cart! Thanks!

I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND MY TIME TO REQUEST A REFUND
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 1 month ago

So after swapping the cables all work! OK< but if it quits again, I would replace the f/r switch and be done. Please use the 5-star rating system to close the question and get me credit. Thanks!
