Default No power, yet the batteries are fully charged

I put new batteries in my cart and charged the cart. They are Lithium. They are showing a charge of 58 volts. The cart ran great for a few miles. Put it away over night. Got in it and it ran fine for 1/4 mile. Got back in the cart and it stopped after 100 yards. Tightened the connections, checked the battery wiring and put it back on the charger. It ran another 200 yards and stopped. I do not hear any clicking. I have no headlights or reverse buzzer operating now. It will not move.
Before the new batteries it ran okay, just was slower and batteries were discharging in a day with less than 2 miles of travel.

I looked for crimped wires, bad fuses, loose wires etc. I see nothing.

This is a 2013 Precedent.

A friend believes the solenoid is bad. She is banging on the part of the electrical receptacle inside the battery box.
She says that is the solenoid.

I think she is just banging on the power receptacle. I am not too familiar with golf cart repairs, but I have only seen solenoids that are independent of the electric receptacle. Is the solenoid behind the panel at the back of the battery box?


I am not a fan on banging on things to get them to run.
Batteries are perfect. Voltage checks out on all of them and each of them. No obvious wiring issues and all fuses look fine.

I get no reverse buzzer. My parking brake works. No headlights. No clicking sounds when the GO pedal is pushed or released.

Should I swap out the solenoid or the micro switch near the FNR rocker?

It's confusing because it worked great. Stopped. Worked great and stopped dead again.
All advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Interesting...
What batteries specifically do you have, drop in or salvaged car batteries?
Is the cart all stock, aside from the batteries?

What kind of charger and controller do you have installed. And no that isn't the solenoid. The solenoid is behind the metal plate in the battery compartment.

Allied Lithium batteries 50AH 12.8V drop in batteries. The charger came as part of the battery set.

The cart has cosmetic upgrades - seats, roof, alpha body.....

The issue is more so a short/bad connection or now a blown fuse. If you have no lights, then that is not a solenoid or controller issue.

The metal plate behind the battery box needs to be accessed. You can jack it up and access the area by removing the plastic cover that protects the harness, controller and solenoid. Check all the fuse holders and use a meter to see where you are losing power.

No mention of battery voltages. Do you have a volt meter to measure the battery voltages? If not I was looking at WalMart today and you can get one for 10 to $15.

I thought I read about this problem recently from another person. Read this and see if it is similar to your problem.

New lithium ion batteries
