I just got a Ford Think with an upgraded motor and controller from Factory already but the Think has no cluster so I am unable to make it go.
I have figured out how to bypass some of the cluster to try to make the thing go, but it seems that the controller has some issue or fault and it won’t let the vehicle move. I have done as much troubleshooting over the weekend that I can but am running into the same problems. I can get the signal to have the controller turn on the contractor and have jumped 12V to get the Drive, Turf or Reverse selected but to no avail….it won’t move.
Not sure what else could be the issue and I don’t want to just assume the controller or motor are not working since they looks like they’re in great condition.
Any help would be nice. My next adventure might be to pull everything out of the cart and bench test things if possible.
Also, anyone know if swapping in a Kelly Controller for a Brushed Motor works? I have one (brushless) in my e bike and it is a great piece of kit. Love the custom programming you can do and they are fairly inexpensive. A regen sealed models for brushed motor 400A is only $318. I just want to use this thing and not spend thousands on the hard to find cluster or expensive used parts.
