I am learning a lot!
The controller thinks the batteries are 75% charged, so I am charging them now. the wire in the photo
is connected to the switch next to the steering wheel, it goes all the way to the rear driver side, almost to the end. I don't know what the switch is for.
The transmission does have the cooler in the front and the fluid color, smell and level looks good. I will losen the cooler hose to see if fluid comes out as soon as I get the motor to spinn faster, right now I don't think it's spinninig more than 200rpm.
So, I am starting to think that I have some other problem.
It is strange that, if I crank, the motor spinns and if I stop it doesn't.
One thing I was afraid of trying was: put the shift to drive, then crank, and as I crank press on the gas pedal.
quote from rillip3
However, the motor should not spin unless you press the accelerator. If it is spinning while you are not pushing on the accelerator, then you have two problems. You may need to check the settings on your potbox to make sure that you've got it correctly zero'd.
I am confused, doesn't the motor need to idle at least 800rpm to keep the pressure on the transmission?
