Grandson's birthday present was the razor dune buggy. he is having a blast with it but (so far) have only one issue, he cant back up. Question, is it possible to install a switch in the wiring circuit before the motor to reverse the polarity in order to allow it to go in reverse? thank you!
Here is a wiring diagram showing how to wire the switch between the motor and controller.
When the switch is in the "I" position the Dune Buggy will go forward, and when in the "O" position the Dune Buggy will be in neutral, and when in the "II" position the Dune Buggy will be in Reverse.
I attached a PDF file of the above wiring diagram that can be printed so a paper copy of the wiring diagram is available for the installation.
sorry it has taken so long to reply! Thank You for your assistance and the information!!! This is exactly what I planned to do but needed to verify or confirm that I wasn't about to make a mistake and cause some type of damage. as soon as the needed supplies arrive and I get this completed, I will post my results to how well it performs. Tom.
thomas wilcox...how did the switch work?
I'm thinking about buying the Razor dune buggy but reverse is a must.
It works very well, I have installed it on 3 so far. The only issue will be deciding where to mount it. Just follow the simple wiring and you will do fine.,,, Tom.
3.48 Volts of throttle signal output should run the motor very fast.
The only thing I can think of is that possibly the controller can sense when the three battery indicator wires from the thumb throttle are not plugged into it. Maybe you could take the three battery indicator wires out of the thumb throttle's connector housing and plug them into the controller's throttle connector the same way the THR-89 wires are and see if it runs then. Just make sure to plug them into the right terminal holes on the connector so everything is wired the way that it should be.
Please let us know how it goes.
