Default Re: Club Car Precedent randomly goes into limp mode

I tested the voltage on the motor side of the solenoid by attaching my probes to the solenoid terminal and the negative post of the main battery. It reads 50.4 volts. Apparently the solenoid is not disengaging even if it clicks like it is disengaging?

It definitely can since the plunger that gets activated by the magnetic coil is not directly attached to the moving contact bridge assembly (it is typically a sleeve around the shaft).

Tap on the Solenoid with a rubber mallet or the hammer handle to see if the contacts release and the voltage on the Controller side drops a volt or so less than pack voltage.

Something I neglected to mention was that when I installed the solenoid I purchased a diode to go across the terminals of the solenoid. Based upon what Sergio said about the solenoid opening, I removed it. The cart has ran fine since. Good possibility I had it on backwards also. I appreciate everyone's help, looks like I have it running again.

Need to get one and put it back on there..... The banded/striped end always goes towards the positive activation side (Blue Wire)

Sergio can answer better than me, but I'm thinking a diode backward would hold the solenoid engaged making your controller think you had a welded solenoid putting you into limp mode.
