Default Ran fine the day I bought it, a day later it doesn't

I went to look at a 2008 club car yesterday. It was extremely clean and it ran flawlessly, so I bought it, brought it home, took the wife and kid for a ride, parked it in the garage, plugged up the charger and left it for the night. Got home from work, this afternoon, and was going to go for a ride, but it won't go. The indicator shows it has a full charge, the lights work, the buzzer buzzes when switched to reverse, but it will not go. Nothing when it's in forward and nothing when it's in reverse. I can't image it being anything major as it was running perfectly fine just yesterday. My first cart and I am no mechanic, so I am clueless... All thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,
si

I know this sounds too easy but make sure the key in on. My buzzer sounds even with the key off but cart will not click or move.

Thanks for the thought... Man, I wish that would have been it, but I went and double checked and that wasn't the case.

thx,

Is there a run/tow switch?

Yes there is a run/tow switch and I double checked it as well. I even switched it into tow and let it sit for a minute and switched it back to ru... Still nothing.

Thanks for thoughts and please keep them coming!

Check all the battery cables. Tug them you may have a bad one.

When you said: "according to the indicator" what type of indicator are we talking about?

Make sure the cart isn't just in sleep mode. My cart did this once and I thought it had died. Pumping the accelerator pedal wakes up the controller. Did you try pressing the accelerator pedal a few times?

Check your batteries as well. Are they original ? Check the tow run switch as well. Bad connection, blown inline fuse etc.
