Default Club car just stopped

It is a 1997 electric club car. I was driving it when it jerk twice and stop dead. The batteries seems fine. Pushing the pedal I hear a click but nothing moves. Fuse is ok

Welcome, Krypty...have you checked all of the battery connections and cables? Give each cable a tug to check for worn or loose cables.

Checked all the batteries and battery cables. Getting a constant 50volts from the batteries and when cart is switched on it drops to a stable 49 volts.

You can hear a click when you switch to reverse and vice versa but it seems the power is not being distributed to the motor.

How can I check if it is the solenoid or the motor? Can sombody please give me a step by step way to bypass the solenoid or to check if the motor is working.

Motor in these things rarely go bad.... The solenoid can click and still be bad....make a jumper out of #4 or 6 cable and bolt it across the two large terminals on the solenoid to bypass the solenoid and it's switching circuit.

Thanks Scotty here is a picture that may also help.



1. Comes from the battery to connect here.
2. Goes from here to a control box.
3-4 Green wires connects to a coil on the frame.

Scotty: So I must use the 4 or 6 gauge cable and bolt it across Number 1 and 2 on the picture?

Thank you very much for all the help

I bought the cart secondhand but it worked for about a year.

When I checked the solenoid today that short piece of red wire was connected at number 1 on the picture with the other 2 red wires and one green wire.

Scotty, In his picture, What is the part under the numbers 3 and 4 with the green and white cables? I was thinking that was the solenoid and he should be jumping those two lugs.
