Default Is there a RUN TOW switch on an 81 Club Car

Hello, I'm at my wits end with this 81 Electric Club Car. I had it running, then installed a battery meter and everything sparked and smoked. Since then, I replaced all the micro switches , replaced the solenoids- and now I have now a no go situation-- can't go forward, and can't go in reverse.. I replaced all the batteries, and battery cables, and all motor, fwd& rev switch cables, There was switch somewhere at one time,, but it looks like it was messed with, no wires hanging from it... I found a 1981 wiring manual- and the schematic doesn't show the run tow switch- my question to the forum,,, should there be a run tow switch on this cart. I'll pay someone in Beer if someone north of Detroit knows how to make this cart work again. Its Friday- Everyone have a great weekend.

Nope, no run/tow switch. I put the link to your wiring diagram at the bottom of this post. Check every single wire and make sure it's going where it needs to. This is one of the simplest drive systems, so usually it's something easy, like a wire that has corroded off. Good luck!

I'm old enough to remember having a phone with no dial at all. You asked the operator for the number. :-)

Remember to turn the crank on the side.
