Default F/R Switch backwards

Hoping someone here can help me. I'm helping out a buddy with his 83 (Serial number says it's an 83) Club Car DS electric. It has a series of solenoids and coils. The F/R switch was bad so I installed a new one. Cart works great now however, the switch is backwards. When I shift it to forward and step on the pedal the cart goes reverse likewise when I shift it to reverse it goes forward. Just trying to figure out if I can simply switch 2 wires to the motor or the F/R switch. I've looked at wiring diagrams but they don't really help me. I'm a gas cart guy so these sparky's are foreign to me.

The wiring diagrams show me how to wire it but don't really tell me what each wire controls. I assume that I could triple check each wire with the diagram an see if anything is backwards but I was hoping to just switch 2 wires and simply reverse the polarity on the motor. Is this possible? I don't want to burn anything up.

This may help verify your cables are correct:



You may have the 2 cables on the swivel posts reversed.

Let us know if Your FNR does not look like that as there is an older model with 3 tabs on the driver's side.

Thanks Sergio. That looks exactly like the switch.

So if I switch the 2 swivel post wires (#5 wire with the wire to A-1) will it reverse the switch? If that's not the problem could it fry anything?

Are You using reduced speed for reverse?

If so, is the forward speed currently faster than reverse?

If You are using less than 36v for reverse, switching the 2 center cables will cause both the direction and the speed at that direction to change.

Nope. I hooked both bottom terminals on the switch to 36 volts. So I have 36v in both directions.

If both bottom terminals have 36v then most likely just the 2 center swivel post cables need to be reversed to correct the issue.

It worked perfect Sergio. Thanks again. I kinda thought that was how i should fix it, i was just a little concerned that i might fry something. So i needed someone else to reinforce it.
