Default Re: club car won't go

Sorry for not getting back sooner.
I finally got a tester and have 20 volts at the post on the solenoid.
I have not changed anything.
The problem started with intermitent no go, seemed like it would go if you jiggled the F/R switch until finally it would not go at all.
Do I have to disconnect the batteries to test individually?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

jack the rear of cart up and with key off jump the large post on the solenoid than turn key on put in gear and press pedal if wheels spin replace solenoid..........you have checked batteries and cables to make sure you have voltage and charging system is ok right? .........if its a reagan cart it will have 2 solenoids make sure you deal with the right one..........................

Thanks Shadowman, here's what I have found. Batteries check out, 48 volts to the solenoid. Jacked the car up, jumped the posts on the solenoid, turn key on, put in gear, pressed gas, and nothing happens. I tested both posts at the solenoid and both have 48 volts whether the key is on or not. I followed the wire from the solenoid to what looks like the controller and tested where it connects to there and there is 48 volts there no matter if the key is on or not. Followed it from there to the motor and there is 48 volts there with the key on or not. What does it all mean, and what do I do now? Any help will be appreciated.

just to clarify are we talking about power to the small terminals? One side POS and the other NEG 48v.?\


Power should turn off at the key..... solenoid not hot all the time? Clarify large or small terninals on the sol. there are 4!

Scotty, I am talking about the larger terminals. I jumped those two with no action. So I put the volt meter to those posts not the small ones and tested each one and they both have 48 volts and with the key off or on. I am not sure if that is supposed to be that way. There is no click.

For starters.... that solenoid is a on/off switch. It is stuck on. The small wires are 1 pos and 1 neg. They give the signal to the solenoid to engage as it is now..... disconnect one and see if the solenoid does not disengage... or test the 2 small terminals and see if you have 48v accross them all the time be clear in your response with large or small terminal tests.....

After you have checked everything out, check the potentiometer under the cart between the brake and "gas" pedal linkages. There is a green microswitch on there that sometimes fails. The green microswitch controls the solenoid turning on and off when the gas pedal is depressed. You can jumper the microswitch to see if the solenoid clicks on. If that is the problem, you can buy the microswitch separately from the potentiometer assembly. Let us know what you find!

Wha hooo!!! I did what you guys told me to do and in checking out the wire going to potentiometer I found one wire that had been broken. I hooked it back up and pushed the go pedal and the tires started rolling!! I took it for a spin, seems a little slow but I am so happy to have it going again. You guys are awesome, thanks for you patience and help.

This cart should have moved under it's own power when the solenoid was jumpered, then????
