Put the cart on jack stands and remove the seat. Press the gas slowly by hand. Each solenoid should click in progression. Solenoid #1 is the master power supply #2 should start the wheels rolling and then each consecutive click should result in a slight bump in speed.

the old resistor carts do start off slow, that is to build up to the top speed
it is why you have 5 solenoids , that are controlled by 5 micro switches in the speed switch


check your resistor coils and solenoid


solenoid test
Quote:
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. remove all wires, restorer , and diode from solenoid
test 1
Connect an volt meter, set on continuity, place on the two large terminal studs. The meter should indicate no continuity, Replace the solenoid if continuity is present.
test 2
Using jumper wires attach from main positive and main negative of battery pack to the two small solenoid studs, polarity is not important. You should hear a click as the solenoid engages, and the meter should indicate continuity on the two large terminals. Replace the solenoid if continuity is not present.
if solenoid clicks rapidly solenoid is bad

a stuck solenoid could cause it to jerk and take off
as a solenoid not engaging would make cart slow

The top speed on these is around 12 mph, that's just their nature...

The sky is the limit. First thing to do would be to upgrade to solid state with a controller, then consider going to 48v but keep your 36v motor. People have had great results doing that...
