Default Club Car Caroche missing gears?

I have a vintage Club Car Caroche, cannot located the year but it has 5 solenoids and the three pedals. I just replaced all five solenoids. The cart moves in forward and reverse but seems to be missing some gears. When I press down on the pedal in neutral I get 3 clicks total. I jacked up the rear and engaged forward and seem to get the same 3 clicks and about the same speed about medium I would say. Microswitch problem? How do I troubleshoot? Thanks.

Yes - there are microswitches that engage each solenoid. Some are working some are not it sounds like. They work in sequence when you push the pedal farther down until they short out all of the resistors.

Thanks Volt A. Is there a way to test the micro switches or do I need to just change them all out?

You can test them with your DVM in ohms if you disconnect the power. These micro switches sequentially energize the solenoids so if you are not getting any power to the solenoids, the switch that goes to that one is not working or the wire going to the switch is broken. I am sure that there is a wiring diagram here for your cart. That should show you how to trace down the problem. The good news is that this is as simple as it gets. No electronics just switches and relays (solenoids).

Just getting back to this cart again. I found one broken microswitch and broken another one swapping out the other.

So now, I think I have all the microswitches ready but I made the classic mistake of not taking a picture and labeling all my taking apart. I was able to put 4 of the microswitches back under the foot pedal roller but cannot remember what to do with this last one that has a red wire connected to it. I tried the cart and it goes in reverse but no forward. When I press the free standing microswitch nothing happens. I am trying to attach a picture.

Any guidance on putting humpty dumpty back together again is much appreciated. Thanks
