Product Details

The Club Car DS V-Glide Assembly is your system's throttle sensor. This is the unit the communicates the position of the pedal to the controller in most cases. Some of the older systems use a resistor coil drive. Unfortunately, we see less and less of them as time goes on. If you do have one of these archaic systems, please call in and speak to tech support. We want to make sure you get what you need. We refer to these as the pre-solid state systems. The golf cart coil consists of different-sized wires with multiple turns to create resistance; this was power inefficient and replaced by the newer setups with controllers.

The internal guts of this golf cart v-glide are high wear due to their make-up and action. First, there are stationary copper contacts that mount in an arch. Then a moveable contact connected to the accelerator linkage wipes over them as you press the pedal. This communicates up to a five thousand ohm signal that the controller interprets as a throttle position. Once this happens, it can allow the proper voltage to flow to the motor, giving you smooth acceleration.

Getting this golf cart throttle sensor replaced is not a challenging task. It helps to be familiar with this type of work. If you are new to this kind of thing, no sweat. There is still no reason to take it to a dealer just yet. We can send you a Club Car OEM manual with your order. It will help explain how to do this step by step. If it still proves to be a challenge, we also have a tech line with guys who have been doing it a really long time. They would be happy to help you get unstuck. Call Buggies Unlimited today and get everything you need shipped right to your door.
