I am getting very frustrated and would appreciate any advice. We had a sudden rainstorm in Southern California and my cart was not covered all of the way. I had some water by the pedal which had already given me trouble before with various error codes. I was going to try and clean the connections but I decided to go ahead and order a new Linemaster pedal based on the info that I found on this site. (I confirmed that it is an exact replacement).
I installed that yesterday which was pretty straightforward since the wire colors matched up perfectly and only left the green wire (I believe this is the ground) which should be fine as that was how it was wired previously.
When I first turned it on, the wheels sounded like they wanted to engage but were not moving. I automatically thought it could be a motor issue but it’s odd because I did not have any issues previously. I jacked up the front of the car and moved the wheels freely with my hand. After I did that, the wheels then turned on their own but I have a lot of sputtering and the cart is not cleanly engaging like it used to.
I find it hard to believe that it’s the new pedal as my prior error codes have gone away, but i’m not sure what else to try other than trying my old pedal again and seeing if the sputtering goes away. It seems like the common response is that it is something motor related (I have the blue Ride-4-fun motor) such as the brushes but I had not seen any issues with that previously.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
