What to do when your golf cart throttle sensor isn't working? Well, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue and fix it. In this article, we'll investigate what causes the problem and explain how to replace your throttle sensor. Here are the steps:
What causes the problem
There are a few things you can do to diagnose and troubleshoot a troublesome golf cart throttle sensor. First, check that the sensor is plugged in and properly connected to the controller. Second, use a voltmeter to test the voltage coming out of the sensor. Third, use a scan tool to troubleshoot any codes that may be coming up on the controller. Finally, if all of those tests come back clean, it may be necessary to take the cart in for repair.
Steps to replacing a throttle sensor
First, make sure that the power is turned off to the club by turning off the breaker at the fuse box or outlet.
Next, disconnect the battery cables from the club so that there is no power going to the club. It's also a good idea to ground the club with a wrench or screwdriver by putting it on a metal surface.
Next, remove the grip from your driver and take out the motor mount bracket with a pair of pliers. Once you have removed the nut at the base of your shaft, pull down on the shaft so that you can unlock the hanger assembly.
Then, use a wrench or pliers to loosen it. With this done, pull it out so that you can see and get access to your throttle sensor.
If your manufacturer doesn't include a throttle sensor in its kit, then it may be easier to order one separately at a golf cart parts store like 10L0L.
