Well one step forward and two steps back. I charged the pack and now I'm back to the solenoid just clicking and no movement. Voltage drops .4 when I apply throttle. Only thing I hear is a solenoid click. It's like I'm chasing my tail!
Edit: voltage only drops .1. Not that it matters! Really got me stumped!

I figured I'd give everyone an update. After running a battery of tests, both with ScottyB and FSIP, the tech guy(s) Stan and Roger think there may be a controller problem. I'm going to send it back and hopefully can get this problem licked sooner rather than later! Will keep everyone updated as I hate when I do a search and the thread has no resolution.

Just a small update today: I called FSIP and spoke with the tech department to see what the diagnosis was on my controller. They said it had a ton of corrosion on the inside! I thought that was very strange seeing as how I have never even had the chance to drive the cart. Oh well, it wasn't done curing when I called but they said it should ship back out to me today.

Got the controller back. Repair slip said logic board. So I put the controller back in the cart and it creeps forward! So I tried to take it for a spin around the block even though it's 4 degrees out. It's going great until I get to a stop sign. Press the go pedal and no go. So I proceed to curse at it and push it home. This experience was supposed to be fun and it has turned into a nightmare. I'm really at my wits end here. I know it's hard to help over the internet, but I'm stuck and since I spent all my money on the conversion I can't even admit defeat and take it to a cart shop. ANY ideas? FNR switch, solenoid? ANYTHING???

Let's get things straight, or at least so I can get them straight.
Where did you get the controller originally and was it new or used?

First thing to do is relax, You don't want to be flustered working on the cart or You could cause real damage or injury.

If the click is coming from the solenoid and since all parts are new, make sure You have +48v on Pin #1 on the controller.

Even if the solenoid engages, the controller will not send power to the motor if it does not get +48v on Pin #1.

Both the solenoid and the Pin #1 should get the +48v from the pedal micro switch.

If You can take a few pictures of the setup: Controller, Solenoid, Motor, FNR and pot box, it will help with more specific troubleshoot ideas.

I do indeed get 48v on pin 1. I'll have to get some pictures and a description to go along with them since I haven't had a chance to tidy up the wiring yet. I've learned early in life not to button everything up before testing! And it's a good thing too! I've decided to take Thursday and Friday off work and get this thing right once and for all. I just had to walk away for a few days taking Sergio's advice! I may throw the old FNR back in and see what that does. Can't hurt anyway. the HD one i got from scotty sure does go from forward to reverse a lot easier than my old one and is "grooved" in a perfect circle where the cam travels. not sure if it's supposed to be that way but like i said, it sure can't hurt to rule it out at this point.

Ok so I got an email from Scotty and went outside to run the recommended tests. Here is the response I sent Scotty. "I just now took the pre charge resistor off and pressed the gas and the **** thing moved! Forward and reverse! Does this mean the resistor is bad? Too late to take it out for a test spin, for this I just kept a drag on the brake pedal to keep rpms down.". So anyone think I'm onto something?
