Sure, you can use jumper wires coming off the main positive and negative of the pack and hook one to each of the small terminals on each solenoid. They should click loudly when 36v is applied. BTW polarity does not matter with the trigger wires...
Also, just because a solenoid clicks does not mean it is good.

You need 36 volts + on one small terminal and 36 volts - on the other small terminal. When the power is applied, the contactor inside should click and there should be continuity between the large posts. There should be no continuity across the big posts when power is not applied to the small terminals.

Beaten by Jake! Also, make sure the rear wheels are off the ground!!!

This is not right, if you removed the bridge and wired the 18v to the terminal on the left, when in forward (as shown), S1 would not be connected to anything and you would short the armature across the +36v to +18v.

The wire going to the speed box micro switches should be coming of the +36v, not one of the swivel terminals.

Edit: This should be the wiring for 1/2 speed reverse. http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/attac...tch_labels.jpg

That #5 label is the solenoid wire.

If You leave the bridge in place, yours should work without half speed reverse.

The speed box switch wire still needs to go to the constant +36v terminal.

Sergio thanks so much for this! I'll hook up the FNR like this in the morning and hopefully it works!
The only thing that confuses me about this pic is that there are 3 wires going to the bottom left terminal labeled "36 volt". That will be the main positive from the battery pack and the speed box wire,,, but is the third wire going to that terminal in the pic?

My FNR doesn't have a bridge/jumper. I guess I could make one.

If You already have a cable for 1/2 speed you don't need a bridge jumper, just wire it like the picture I posted.

The extra red wire on the +36v FNR terminal goes to the charger receptacle.

It can also be wired directly from the charger receptacle to the pack positive.

SERGIO, I LOVE YOU MAN!!!!

She's alive! Fired right up and all the solenoids are firing as well! I have to start replacing all the jumper wires on the solenoid bank though because the connections are all very weak and corroded and one of resistor coil connections was actually sparking when I engaged the accelerator. But that's easy stuff. I'm pumped! What a sense of accomplishment to have brought this 30 year old beast back to life! Couldn't have done it without you all!
