Default 82 club cart jerky acceleration

I have changed all the solenoids, new batteries, now the cart has a jerky start. Checked the micro switches and they seem to turn the solenoids on. Cart does not accelerate as youbpress on the pedal. Help...

check the speed switch inside the micro switch box

also check your coils for breaks

Seems like when you press on the accelerator it is full speed.

It looks wired correctly. Could it be the micro switches even thou they make the solenoids click?

your micro switches engage your solenoids, if one was bad it would be engaged or dead and solenoids would not click

i would test each solenoid first, starting with the high speed one

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
even a new solenoid can go bad

I removed all of the wires from the solenoid and I checked all of them and they do have continuity on the large terminals on test one, so all are bad??? It that's the case why would it run? They were all just replaced.
