Default 91 electric club car ds wont move

Hi all,
I have a 36 volt electric cart that suddenly won't move forward or backward. I have 36 volts at the solenoid. The batteries are fully charged. I have the cart rear axle jacked up. When I jump the solenoid the rear wheels turn. Without the solenoid jumped pressing on the pedal has no effect. What can I check to diagnosis the problem?
Thanks,
Mark

if you hear no click of the solenoid then replace the solenoid
you can test it


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

this is the activation of solenoid


key switch >>> f/r micro switch >>> v-glide micro switch >>> solenoid




check all wires and micro switches

The f/r micro switch clicks like it should but the one in the v glide doesn't appear to do anything. I haven't checked the voltage coming from either yet but I am suspicious of the v glide one. I will remove it tomorrow and check it out. Thanks for the awesome diagram.

that switch is a *itch

to test it without removing it

jack up cart and place on jack stands
use a jump wire from the pack negative to the green wire stud on the solenoid
key on >> forward engaged >>> press go pedal
if cart motor runs then the v-glide micro switch is bad

I swapped the micro switch in the v glide with the one from the f/r control and temporarily put a jumper in place of the one for f/r and it works! I ordered a new micros switch today to replace the jumper so when it comes I should be back in business.
Thank you very much for your help.

Crash, try tracing the safety series with your finger on the diagram. I think a wire is miss-routed and a wire is missing.

The series on the diagram is--key s/w--f/r m/s--solenoid--v-glide m/s.

.
battery pack negative to charger receptacle
charger receptacle to micro switch V-glide (black wire)
micro switch V-glide to solenoid (green wire)
solenoid to f/r micro switch (yellow wire)
f/r micro switch to key switch (blue wire)
key switch to f/r switch (red wire)
f/r switch to battery pack positive


the black wire from the charger receptacle to micro switch V-glide is light
