2009 electric ezgo rxv

Just got our ezgo back from shop, New batteries,solenoid, computer rebuild. Says charger was bad as well so that is off for rebuilding. Get the cart home drives great for 1 day. Now it won't move on it's own but will run and drive great after a punch to engage movement. Checked all the connections we can see. Found the a bolts floppy. Tightened them up but not fixed. Any one have any ideas as to why or what this is. Of course after 1684.$ the mechanic has no clue but says it's prolly the motor but it runs like crazy after you ingage either forward or reverse movement.

Just a wild guess, a dead segment on the commutator in the motor.

Is this something that we can get replaced ? Or do we have to get a New motor?

Welcome to the forums.

From what I can see..... that is a 48vac motor. Probably three phase which means no commutator. Yours does not sound like a motor problem and I severely doubt it's bad.

but will run and drive great after a punch to engage movement.
Can you explain exactly what that means or what you are doing ?
Are you hearing the click of the main solenoid ?
Is everything else working.... like the headlights ?
Is the voltage gauge steady or erratic ?

I understand that unit can be code scanned. Make sure you get the scan that shows the motor is defective.

We park it on a hill it will roll and run any where. If you lift the back wheels off the ground. A small touch to roll the wheels in either forward or reverse . It's a minor push to move it.

No headlights. It is a 48 volt 3 phase.
