Default 2006 Precedent goes in reverse but forward only sometimes

I own at 2006 Electric Club Car Precedent that has begun giving me intermittent problems in regards to going forward. Going in reverse is never a problem but going forward is very sporadic. I have already replaced my MCOR. That did not help. I have checked my batteries and they are OK. I cleaned the terminals on my forward/reverse switch. Nothing has helped. I am not very good with a multi-meter so checking power to different switches, plugs, etc. is not easy for me. Some fellow club members have suggested maybe I have a bad micro switch but I can’t find any info on where one is on my cart. The solenoid has also been mentioned as a possible fix. I am all ears if anyone has an idea of how I can get my golf cart back running reliably.

Check the blue and orange wires on the controller. Sometimes they get pulled loose.

Might even be the F&R toggle switch.
Pull the switch out of the housing and swap the 2 end wires, then flip the switch around 180.
Afterwards is the problem the same or did the problem direction change?

When that happened to me I found the toggle sw jammed. There is a rubber gasket which seals water out of the switch. It came loose and was jamming one side of the sw. Remove the switch from its mounting and you should see the gasket out of place.

You are wonderful. I switched the forward and reverse wire connections and played 9 holes of golf with no problems going forward. I will order a forward/reverse switch tomorrow and hopefully again have both forward and reverse working. Thank you so much.
