There is a red wire and blue wire coming off the back of the key. I connected the blue wire to the top of the FNR micro switch and the red wire to the main negative on the battery pack. Is that correct? That's the way the wiring diagram I have shows it.

This is exactly how I had the FNR wired up.


The only thing I did different is run a cable from the negative post on battery 3 to the bottom left lug on the FNR for half speed reverse in lieu of bridging it like in the pic.

So you've got it all wired up and it's doing nothing? You do have the key in the on position correct?

Yes sir. Solenoids weren't even popping. I have the volt meter hooked up as well so I know I've got juice. Maybe I just need to start tracing the wires to see if I have any bad connections. I didn't replace any of the wires coming out of the speed box or on the solenoid bank so maybe some of them are corroded. I planned on getting to all that eventually but thought I had it to a point that I could actually make it come alive just to feel some sense of accomplishment!

The good news is that this is the simplest drive system out there. Do you hear all of the microswitches in the speed box clicking as you press the accelerator?

Yep. All the micro switches have a good audible click.

You can actually test the firing of the solenoids with the cart in neutral and the key on. Start with that and use your DVM to see if you are getting power to the yellow trigger wires as you press the accelerator.

Good idea I'll make that my next step. Is there a way I can actually test each solenoid to make sure they are firing off? I thought saw a video at one time where a guy had cables hooked up to the batteries and touched each solenoid to make it click. I'll have to look for that again. If it's not obvious I'm not much an electrician.
