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

I have a 97 cc that solenoid activates when you press the accelerator and within 2 seconds it cuts out. This is a v glide 48 volt. The solenoid is new. Any ideas?

test solenoid first .. just hearing a click does not mean it's working ... new ones can be bad ... make sure it is a 48v solenoid

Solenoid is new and tested. I seem to be loosing the activation circuit. Does OBO control all this circuit. New micro switch put in v glide.

Thanks a lot crash test dummy, I was able to test all solenoids and found a bad one it was the far right side. (passenger side) The markings on it looked the factory one.
Is that causing the cart to slow down?
You were right , it made a click but the test shows no output.
Now I just need to find a new one, maybe someone local will have it without paying some ungodly price. otherwise I will just order one. Does anybody know who has a good price on a 36 volt solenoid.
