MCOR Application Guide


If you're interested in getting the best possible throttle control for your Club Car vehicle, the MCOR4 is the solution. It is the newest throttle control device from Club Car and can be adapted to almost any 48 volt Club Car vehicle with the correct conversion kit.  This page will help to clear up any confusion that you may have regarding an MCOR4 conversion on your vehicle.


The first step is to identify the throttle control device that your vehicle is currently equipped with. After you have identified it, it should become clear which conversion kit you will need to convert your vehicle to MCOR4.



POT BOX - Obsolete - This was the continuously variable potentiometer found on many early 48 Volt DS and Carryall vehicles. A Pot Box will be located beneath the floor on the inside of the driver's side I-Beam of the main frame. If you have a Pot Box, you'll need to order kit part #AM293201


Multi-Step Potentiometer - Often referred to as a V-Glide, this is the pie-shaped box mounted on the driver's side frame beam underneath the driver's seat.  If you have a Multi-Step Potentiometer, you'll need to order kit part #AM293201


MCOR1 - Part Number 102101101 - Obsolete - This was the DS MCOR found on all DS models since the introduction of the MCOR in 2000 until the MCOR3 came out in 2012. It is now an obsolete part number and is no longer manufactured. If you have a DS or Carryall and you need to replace one of these you must order an MCOR4 conversion kit. Kit part #AM293101

MCOR2 - Part Number 102528501 - The original Precedent MCOR. It is exactly the same as the MCOR1 internally. Externally, it mounts differently and has a different input shaft. It will only work on Precedent models. Will not fit on anything else. If you have a Generation 1 pedal assembly on your Precedent, the MCOR2 is for you.  If you have a Generation 2 pedal assembly, we recommend converting to the MCOR4.  More information on pedal identification is found below in the next section. MCOR2

MCOR3 - Part Number 103850401 - Obsolete - Replaced with MCOR4. If your vehicle is equipped with one of these, an MCOR4 will work as a direct replacement.

MCOR4 - Part Number 105116301 - The newest version of the MCOR. Works on both DS and Precedent models. However, if the vehicle isn't currently equipped with an MCOR3 or MCOR4, you must order a conversion kit to make it fit. Details Below.


PEDAL ASSEMBLY (Precedent Only)

There are two different styles of pedal assemblies for Precedents. We have included a photo of both to help identify which one you have.

Generation 1 Pedal Assembly (Shown at bottom of page) - Uses MCOR2 only. MCOR3 and MCOR4 will not fit. Period.



Generation 2 Pedal Assembly (Shown at bottom of page) - Can be used with MCOR2, MCOR3, or MCOR4. If you currently have an MCOR2 that needs to be replaced, you have the option of replacing it with another MCOR2 or ordering the MCOR4 conversion kit. Either way works fine, but we recommend the MCOR4 conversion kit.



MCOR2 to MCOR4 Conversion Kit for Precedent with Gen2 Pedal Assy - AM293001 - This kit will fit on any Generation 2 Precedent pedal assembly.

MCOR1 to MCOR4 Conversion for DS - AM293101 - This kit will fit on any DS or Carryall that is currently equipped with an original MCOR.

V-Glide or Potbox to MCOR4 Conversion for DS - AM293201 - This kit is intended to be used on a DS or Carryall vehicle that is not currently equipped with an MCOR.  Can be used on any 48 Volt DS or Carryall from 1995 (week 16 and after) until year model 2000 when the MCOR was introduced.  This kit includes all necessary brackets, wire adapters, a new MCOR4, and easy to follow instructions on how to convert your Pre-MCOR vehicle to an MCOR4 throttle control.


Notes: If you have a 2009 Precedent (Or Early 2010), read this. If not, it doesn't apply.

In 2009 Club Car attempted to eliminate the MCOR2 and used a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). It didn't work out and production stopped by 2010. 2009 Vehicles were supposed to all be swapped back to an MCOR2. This was a warranty repair. However, I've seen lots of 2009 vehicles still equipped with the TPS. If you have it, convert it. It's going to cause you trouble down the road.

2009 Vehicles that were converted from a TPS to an MCOR2 will have a TPS to MCOR Adapter (PHOTO BELOW) plugged into the MCOR. In IQ models, it's simply a plug designed to convert the 6 pin TPS connector to the classic style MCOR2 plugs. In Excel models, this adapter has three 461ohm resistors inside soldered into the three throttle wires. This adapter MUST BE in place or the Excel vehicle will not function properly. In 2008 and 2010-Present the resistors are soldered into the main wire harness and the adapter is not necessary. If you have an IQ vehicle that is currently equipped with a TPS, you do not need to order this adapter. All you need to do is install the AM293001 MCOR4 Conversion Kit onto your pedal assembly, cut off the TPS connector and cut off the two MCOR connectors, and connect all five wires from the MCOR4 to your vehicle wiring. Four of the five wire colors will match, and black will go to purple for the 5th connection.
