Could be one or more of your batteries going bad. When is the last time you had the battery system load checked? Water level in all batteries (unless they're sealed) should be checked, as should all the cables for corrosion, tightness, etc.

Anyway, it certainly sounds like a battery related issue.

You'll have to do a recalibration. This is why you never disconnect a battery without having backup power plugged into the OBDII port.

Request the wiring diagram directly from Hillman.

If the smell is a burning smell, be very careful, a fire could start. If the smell is chemical, but very careful, a battery could explode.
That said, check your electrical connections and your voltage. If you don't know how to do this, call a friend or take it to a shop. The speed control, the wiring and the batteries can all cause what you describe.
One more thought, a dragging brake could also cause this problem.
Things to consider: When did the problem start? What happened or changed at that time? When was the last time it ran right?

Here's a link to brake adjustment info:
