Default club car won't go

I am new here and hoping to learn how to troubleshoot. This is a 1997, 48 volt club car. This one will not go, I can hear a click from the F/R switch when depressing pedal. What do I do next? I have a volt meter. I have cleaned battery terminals. I suspect the F/R switch. Any help will be appreciated.

Phasetim, thanks for replying. There is no click from the solenoid. Can I jump the teminals on the solenoid like I would a starter on a car? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can jumper the 2 large terminals with a battery cable. If the cart runs replace the solenoid with one of the same voltage. I suggest you do this on jack stands .....

i personally prefer using a meter to test the solenoid.. if you are getting 48v to the small post and no click, the solenoid is bad... if you are not getting 48v then trace voltage backwards.. less exciting..

Ok, I did not jump the solenoid but I tested for voltage at both posts of the solenoid and I have voltage at both posts with key off and key on, no click at solenoid. What does that mean, what do I test next? Thanks for you help
