Looks to be the metal box.

Ok then you've got the speed switches and no v-glide. There is a MS for each solenoid. Do they all click when you press down on the pedal?

Yes.

And they can all click and not actually be working, which makes it more confusing

You'll know if the solenoids are firing, they are loud.

Hm. I can hear 3 definitive clicks. Kind of what I posted in that other thread. The first 2 do nothing. They click, but the cart doesn't move until the 3rd click, then she goes. I don't hear any other clicks, but it tries to go a touch faster when the pedal is floored.


I'm super new to this cart, so not sure how to test the solenoids or MS's....

Sounds like you've got some bad switches and/or solenoids.

With the cart off and in neutral, raise the seat and put your head near the microswitch box. While pushing down on the GO pedal with your hand, listen for 5 faint clicks. They will be much fainter than the solenoid clicks.

So, it clicks 4 times total.

1, 2, 3, then a bit of a dead spot until 4th click is almost floored.

You've got a bad MS. You can unbolt that box to get inside and find that bad switch. Once you're in there you can test to see if they click by hand. I would also test them with a DVM.
