old ezgo DCS 36v. aftermarket controller. been going fine for over a year. sometimes I hit the go pedal it starts then will not go. I can put it in reverse and it may or may not go. Sometimes after it goes in reverse I can put it in forward and it goes again. Sometimes when is going I can feel a short loss of power but it keeps going. The batteries are fully charged and fairly new. The cables are good, clean and tight. I can hear the solenoid click when it's supposed to. The controller has an LED that normally green but blinks red when the trouble starts. It will not attempt to go again unless I turn off the key and then back on. Then it might go again or might give the blinking red LED. … read more
