Ok, what am I looking for voltage-wise?

And would that explain a slow *** cart?

Is there any upgrades to do with the switches or solenoids to squeeze more speed?

It could, because the faster solenoids are not engaging. You should be able to use the Ohm setting and see if the circuit opens and closes with the click.

No, once the system is working properly, you should be getting 12-15 mph. Anything past that would require a solid state upgrade.

I've got to sign off, have a meeting at 5, I'll be back afterwards...

The "faster in reverse" issue may be part of the problem as well

I'd be super happy with that. I'll wait to upgrade the next cart to really move. This one is just to get my feet wet... lol...

So, I'll test the MS's, and from there, I think I'll test the solenoids.

Maybe. It jumps in reverse, but I'm probably wrong to say faster. It just engages earlier in the pedal than going forward.

So, it looks like 1 of the MS's are bad. How do I test the solenoids? And where is a good place to get replacements if needed?

Put your negative lead on the main pack negative, then the positive on one of the big terminals on the solenoid. One will always have power, the other will have power after it clicks. Test with cart in neutral and key on. Push down on the pedal to test each one.

May not be a bad idea to have the rear in the air on jack stands in case something goes awry.

Your local CC dealer should have them, or order from a site sponsor.

I will work on it more tomorrow. How many volts should be present at the motor at WOT? And which lugs on the motor do I check?

The battery wires look crappy, could I be losing a lot of voltage due to old wires?
