So we won a blue ground force drifter about 4 months ago and its been great. The only thing I did to it was run a 3rd battery in series to make it 36v. Nice little upgrade in speed for my little guy and he loves it. The other day it was ran real low and hard by the kids in the neighborhood. I tried to charge it but the charger (36v) light would just stay green even though I know it was dead so I pulled the cover off and found the fuse to be blown. I replaced it from one at the hardware store and it charged red and turned green when it was done as normal. I thought everything was good except when I turned it on the kart automatically just started going without hitting the throttle. I then turned off and sat in the kart and turn on to see what would happen and it went without throttle again. Very slowly and hitting the throttle didn’t do anything but all the lights on the throttle where flashing etc. Pulled over and you can smell like an electric burning smell and the motor was real hot so I disconnected it and removed the fuse. That’s where im at, looking for some help and advice. Everything is stock, the only thing I did was add a 3rd battery in series leaving the fuse in place and the 2 stock batteries in place as well. I was thinking of just changing out the controller and motor to make a true 36v but don’t know what I have to get and would like it to be as plug and play as possible since im no expert lol. Or if I can just buy whatever’s wrong right now and advice to help prevent this from happening in future..... sorry so long!
