Default Diagnose problems with a 36v DS resistor cart

Batteries are brand new, the cart motor will run when on the jack stands but when you put it on the ground it won't move at all?

You know we going to need more than what you gave us.
What is pack voltage?
Are all your connections clean and tight? Any breaks in cables?
Are your solenoids working? Do you have solenoids or just resistor coil?
Have you done anything to the buggie recently? Did you wash it?

Meaning it has no power (torque) as it will only turn the tires without a load on it(?)

38.4 volts brand new batteries problem was there before batteries....old batteries only got to 37v
36v resistor coil cart...solenoid has to work since tires spin off the ground
Acts like zero torque with tires on the ground but spins the tires when on jackstands

What year is this cart? (Obviously it is not your '89 since you converted it)

Does it have the 5 limit switch speed switches or the v-glide/stepper slide type?
