Vectrix Vx1 quit running

I regularly use my VX1. It has had a problem for a few years that won't let me apply full power. Under heavy throttle, it loses power, or 'cuts out'. Two days ago, it quit all together. When I turned it on, it tried to pull forward a little with no throttle applied. But when I applied throttle, it wouldn't move. Then the screens went blank. Nothing. It's like the large fuse blew. Any thoughts?

sounds like your IGBT failed short circuit causing the main fuse to blow.
I've seen this failure mode heaps of times

You'll need a new motor controller
