|If you have later model EZGO PDS Golf Cart it is very simple to add a speed chip (EZGO PDS Electric Freedom Chip) to you cart by just plugging it in. Well sort of.|
Most PDS carts are usually year model 2000 and newer. A PDS (Power Drive System) cart can be determined by the type of Forward/Reverse switch and controller you have.
Your EZGO cart must have these parts or you don’t have a PDS cart and can not use a speed chip. The Forward / Reverses switch is on your dash and the controller is inside the small box with a run -tow switch on top (beside the battery pack under passenger seat).
Here Is How To Install Speed Chip In EZGO Golf Cart PDS
1 Flip the “run – tow” switch to tow.
2 Remove the cover (controller environmental cover).
3 Plug the Speed Chip into the controller(see photo for location).
4 Reinstall the cover.
5 Flip the “run – tow” switch back to run.
To make sure what mode you have now achieved.
Toggle the forward/reverse switch from NEUTRAL TO REVERSE 5 times
In a few seconds after the 5th toggle (beep) you will hear one of the following.
1 beep = all-terrain 13.5 mph
2 beeps = steep hill 13.5 mph
3 beeps = mild hill 14.5 mph
4 beeps = freedom (Speed) 19 mph
When that sequence of beep are done flip the “run – tow” switch back to tow then to run to escape the diagnostic mode. You are now in the Freedom mode if you were given the proper EZGO cart chip. If you hear one of the other amounts of beeps you were sent the wrong chip.
SPEED CHIPS FOR EZGO CAN BE PURCHASED FOR Under $10 – SEE BELOW.

I performed the task listed above regarding replacing the freedom chip, however the cart still does not operate in freedom speed. Diagnostic gives 3 beeps. (Replaced old freedom chip (red wires) with new one and it will not respond to the 4 beeps (freedom mode) or operate at freedom speed. Thoughts on if controller is bad, motor, etc.? Any other potential fixes?
what can i do to increase the speed on a club car golf cart
Bruno: Change Tire size, gearing , controller or motor.

Thank you for the instructions. Installation required fewer than 10 minutes to complete.
Prior to installation, my GPS claimed that our golf cart’s top speed was 13.2MPH.
I installed the Speed Chip this last Sunday and afterward, my GPS claims that our golf cart’s top speed is 18.8MPH.
That’s a 42% speed increase! Indeed noticeable, and FUN.
We have a 2012 ezgo express cart (electric) how can we speed it up, it is now going at 17mph.
I installed a red speed chip to my 2007 PDS it only beeped 3 times. Can not get to the freedom code setting?? Any ideas???
I have a 1997 electric ezgo would like to know the rear end gear rasho? Thanks
I too found my cart only beeping 3 and not 4 times signifying it was not in Freedom mode. I contacted a customer service tech and he was not able to help me diagnose the problem. What I noticed was the red chip they sent was not wired as the picture. Since the chip would cost more to send back I decided to pull out the wire installed in the wrong slot and reinstall as shown in there picture. I was then able to program the cart in put it into freedom mode. Since the wires are soldered to small terminals pressed into the connector body I did have to re-solder the wire to the small terminal. I recommend you contact the supplier and have them send you a new chip since these probably cost them less than a $1. This may or may not be your problem but an easy check versus thinking you have a controller issue.
Is there anyway to tell if the cart has no horn?
I installed the red speed chip today, I did not know I already had the yellow mild hill chip so that was an added bonus. I did not hear any beeps after toggling the neutral/rev switch so I tried again and nothing, went for a ride and noticed no engine braking when lifting off the foot pedal and definitely a lot more speed. The previous owner disconnected the reverse buzzer so they may be tied in together although if I leave the cart in reverse and turn it off it will have a low tone buzz to alert it was left in reverse. I live on a pretty steep hill so I will probably switch back to the mild hill or all terrain setting around home and back to the high speed for when I am at the beach since it is a lot flatter ground there.
