The Precision Drive System (hereafter called PDS), was introduced by E-Z-GO in 2000. Not all 2000 models are PDS, though. There are still fleet models produced without the PDS system. The easiest way to determine if you have a PDS or not is by examining the environmental black plastic cover which houses the controller and solenoid. If it has a series of diagnostic codes listed on the outside, it is most definitely a PDS system.
The PDS featured a separately excited motor (which allows for regenerative braking) and a somewhat programmable controller. It is not programmable like the Alltrax product by the fact that you don't have all the options presented in a computer programmed environment. E-Z-GO elected to make it simle on the end user and limit the options on programmability.
On the outside of the the PDS controller (inside the cover of course), you'll see all kinds of multi-pin connectors going in. There's one on the front facing side which goes no where. It will either have a blank plug or a colored jumper wire looping back into another slot within the connector. Depending on which plug is installed and which circuits are connected, the performance characteristics of the car can be drastically altered. Since they are a whole lot cheaper and easier to install, you might want to try a different plug in your car to achieve the desired performance before upgrading the controller and/or motor. We also have various motor and controller upgrades available if the selected plug does not perform to your satisfaction. The various performance plug options and colors are listed below.
Please select your desired performance plug from the drop down menu below. if you have any questions about which plug might be right for your terrain and use, please feel free to call 800-328-1953 and any of our trained E-Z-GO certified tech staff can assist you.
