Customer Question

I have an EZ go that was spuddering and then just quit, I replaced the solenoid, and now the controller but it is still not working. I just found out about the diagnostics and I am getting 4-1 beeps and wondering how to tell if it is the motor or something else
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: It just has been working amazing. After it was sputtering, I held down the gas and it took off and then stopped. The next day it allowed me to pull it in the garage even but now nothing
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: No it is electric
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: We have tested all batteries and they are good and the cart has a full charge The batteries are only a year old

Here is the beep code chart, and it shows you have armature open, check connections at the motor and then the motor! Sputtering could have been the motor brushes arching on the armature.

Right I know about the beep code charts...I was hoping you could tell me how to fix the issue
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 11 months ago.

Check the connections at the motor, and there is a way to run a test on the motor. Here is link to the motor test, you will have to scroll down the opening page past the manuals to find the troubleshooting guide wih motor test.
