I have not used my trolley for 15 months and now it does not seem to have power as it will not go forward under load. If I lift the driving wheels off the ground and increase the speed, the wheels turn and go faster as the speed increases. However, when I place the driving wheels on the ground it will not move. Occasionally, the trolley Huddersfield as if trying to go forward but lacking power. The battery is putting out 12.2v. The speed controller goes from 0-7 with an audible click from 0 to 1 and the clutches seem ok.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

When a golf trolley has been laid up for a while, then there are a few things to check. In your circumstances with the power for the trolley seemingly getting through as you describe the golf trolley wheels will move when lifted off the ground. I would say the clutches are worn or corroded and need replaced. When the electric golf trolley wheels turn OK when not under load or resistance but do not turn with a load put on them, but the axle and motor do turn, then the first thing to check is the golf trolley clutches. There are a few wheel clutch tests described and available on the support page. The battery does seem to lack charge and if it has been lying around not charged for over 6 months then it would have run down. When a golf trolley battery (lead acid type) runs down completely this causes irreparable damage to the battery and it will need replaced. The battery fully charged should show around 13.5volts.
