The readings indicate the solenoid should be clicking, if not, Your solenoid is Bad.

I did not see any diodes across the small terminals, they may be internal, is there any polarity markings on the solenoid (+ and -)?.

Disconnect both spade connectors from the small posts of the solenoid.

Set your meter to 2kΩ setting.

Measure the resistance across the small posts, You should get somewhere between 200Ω and 600Ω resistance.

If You get nothing (0L on the meter), the solenoid coil is bad.

If You get 0Ω, the internal diode is shorted.

I cant catch a break
put new solenoid in
press petal it would engage
tires would spin around about 3 times then stop then about 1 sec later the solenoid would open
wait about 1 min press petal same thing

then I was testing the solenoid coil between the two terminals and one lead slipped and they touch together
made a spark
now i have about 3 volt between the two coil terminals
still reads 51 volts from 1 terminal to neg on bank

took new solenoid off and put on ohm/beep
got 183 omh between two small terminal
old solenoid that didnt work before reads 187 between two small terminal

May have taken out the controller. Was the Tow / Run switch in Run at the time?

Unfortunately that would have taken +48v through the controller solenoid activation transistor straight to negative.

I would agree there is a very good chance the Controller activation got damaged.

You may want to disconnect the battery pack for a minute to fully reboot the controller, long shot....

Also, did the new solenoid come with a diode or is it internal?

Did You put the pre-charge resistor back on top of the big posts?

new solenoid did not come with a diode
yes put resistor back on top, but took it off after the arch to retest and same result

the new solenoid does have 2 liitle screws on each little terminal right below where wires connect
