Customer Question
The accelerator does nothing...

The accelerator does nothing. It stuttered yesterday and stopped dead even though it has full charge.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your electric?

I'm not sure of the year but it is a California roadster

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your California?

I think it is a 2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your California yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to fix it myself. There is an LED light in side the back that shows red when I press the accelerator about halfway down.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

When I take the rear seat out there is a box inside the cart with an LED light on it. I would have to go look at it to tell you what it is

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just replaced an 8 volt battery that was low
