Customer Question

My 1996 Club Car 48 only goes about 8 to 10 mph with pedal all the way down. I replaced the batteries with new and no apparent change.

Customer: Yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is there a speed sensor on the end of the drive motor? Unplug the sensor and see if it makes any difference in drive speed. Next , does the cart have the OBC? Try a reset of the OBC. Link below to see reset procedure,

If no change , the MCOR, motor control output regulator(foot switch) is bad.
