How to Repair an E-Z-GO Speed Controller

Posted by Tara Ann Garrett on Mar 7, 2018 10:08:53 AM

Every EZ-GO golf cart comes equipped with one of two kinds of speed controllers, a precision drive system or a drive control system.

All modern golf carts (Including any cart that is sold by Garrett’s) use the precision drive system or PDS, whereas older carts made before 1994 will use a drive control system.

These devices control the acceleration and overall speed of the golf cart, so when they’re not working properly it’s important to know what to do.

When your golf cart’s speed controller isn’t operating correctly, your cart will show it by running erratically or failing to drive at one constant speed. If your cart starts showing these symptoms, the first thing you should look at is your speed controller.

Here are 5 steps you should follow for a DIY fix to your golf cart's speed controller.
