4104Re: [solectria_ev] "Engine" missing.
- Jul 2, 2008Greetings:
A long time ago I replaced the potentiometer (POT) in my 1992 Force.
I removed the POT and found some numbers on it that corresponded to the manufacturer's part number.
I was able to find a replacement part at www.digikey.com
Another method is to measure the shaft diameter, thread size of the nut and the resistance value between the two outer wires (when disconnected).? This will give you the specs. that you need.

Our E-10 had this a while back and our Force just recently developed the
same thing. There is a spot on the accelerator potentiometer that is
where it sits during normal driving and I assume the wiper in the pot
eventually rubs this area until it starts to fail. That failure results
in jerky power when driving with your foot in that position. The remedy
is to replace the potbox potentiometer. Does anybody have a source for
these? I definitely need to replace mine ASAP.
