Default 1983 36 volt club car solenoids

What are good solenoids for my cart. I did some reading in other threads and think maybe I have some old faulty ones. Here is whats going on. slowy push ped down, hear one click ( that is the main one to power them up, no movement) 2nd click, no movement, 3rd click small lunge forward, hesitates
then ask I push down further seems to go one speed. on the flats it maintains speeds, up a hill it slows down some , till I push all the way and then it goes. I do feel heat from the coils from on top of the solenoids. No maybe this all normal, I have never had electric golf car or any all electric. I have nothing to compare it too, anyone have some suggestions or ideas for me thanks,

Default Re: 1983 36 volt club car solenoids

ok first your coils do heat up , it is what they were made to do
here is how your cart works
you turn on key and it energizes the f/r micro switch
you place f/r switch in forward it energizes the 1st solenoid, this is the main solenoid it powers the other solenoids
as you press the go pedal you engage the micro switches in the speed box
there are 4 speeds. as you press on the go pedal it in turn activates a micro switch and in turn the solenoids
when you fully depress the go pedal you by pass the coils and are at full power
reverse is 18v or half speed
yes you will slow down on a up hill and speed up going down , DO NOT FREE WHEEL DOWN HILL use brakes to slow down or you will blow the motor

test each solenoid

solenoid test

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

then test each micro switch
