Default Re: Club Car won't run with fully charged batteries

Cleaned solenoid connections. Wheels spin in fwd and rev with both cables on the right solenoid terminal. Wheels spun well fwd and reverse with the original cable positions, however, could not get them to spin once I turned the cart off then back on.

The left wheel seems to want to spoil up slower and spin slower, currently on jscks, could be something catching that I am not seeing.

I am going to clean up some more connections in the morning and report back.

With both larger cables on the right solenoid post what am I losing or what damage am I causing by leaving it this way? Should I just go ahead and replace the solenoid?

If rust and corrosion was causing some of your problem I'd go ahead and replace the solenoid. You shouldn't leave the two large terminals jumpered together. It would become a safety hazard. The main purpose of the solenoid is to shut down the cart if any problems occur. It could lead to a runaway cart and do damage. Also one wheel will spin faster than the other its the nature of the differential. So replace the solenoid and we'll continue.

Even with clean connections still seems like a bad solenoid. Should I replace it with an identical one or are there any better ones to go with?

Jeff 0181.
I think you and I have the same problem with our carts. Possibly the solenoid .
Please keep me posted as to what you do.

Sounds like a lack of previous owner maintenance and the weather on the Carolina coast will rust everything. I lived in West Ashley for several years. Check your cables as well. They may be corroded inside the insulation causing greater resistance, I see that happen a lot and it makes for a long difficult diagnosis at times. The replacement solenoids are slightly larger than the original ones, but you can use the stock unit it is fine and they don't fail often.

New solenoid is in. On jacks, the cart runs both fwd and rev just fine. Click when pushing gas pedal significantly more pronounced than before. Replacing all battery cables as well because it was needed.

Thank you for all the help with fixing my cart. It was surprising to find such a knowledge base dedicated to this and willing to help.

The Boss 20......New to this so please forgive me if not posting this or asking question correctly....but.....I have this same problem of cart stopping randomly. When I tried the suggestion of putting cart in tow and pumping pedal 20 times and then putting cart back in run, cart started up again. My question is.....what does this indicate. Does this permanently fix problem or is it just a diagnoses of a problem. Thank you.
