OK. But I don't need to see a pic of the FNR. The reason I asked is because there are a lot of carts of this vintage that began life with 2 solenoids.

I now know which wiring diagram to look at because yours did not come with 2 solenoids. I asked you this in post #5.

Maybe the colors look different in the picture, but it looks like You have a 240Ω pre-charge resistor, that is way too small for 48v and it will get hotter than the 5 watts rating could dissipate.

The correct size for a 48v system is 470Ω x 10 watts.

Also, why is there two wires on the negative activation circuit?

Is the OBC lockout by-passed and the old wire left in place?

Good catch Sergio. I knew something did not look right about that resistor.

Chandler this is what you should have:

On one large post: Red cable to pack positive, Red to OBC, Green to key switch and red to reverse buzzer.

Other large post: Yellow cable to controller.

One small post: Yellow to OBC. (This is your neg. side)

Other small post: White/Black to FNR micro, Red to controller pin #1.

And as Sergio pointed out, there should be only 1 wire on the neg. activation (small) post.

Follow them and see if one goes to B- on the controller or to pack negative.

Just remember your solenoid has a built in diode that has to have the small wires oriented one way only. Most others it does not matter.

Ok so body is off. One yellow wire goes to obc red wire withe resistor or diode built in goes to obc. Other yellow wire goes to a relay under dash. Big yellow to controller big black to positive. Other red goes to a white wire black trace to the micro switch on for switch. Also I found a box under floor that has wires going to it not sure what it is.

Your last picture shows the Serial Number, You have a DS Villager that was refurbished in 2003.

Here is Your wiring diagram which includes that additional yellow wire from the Solenoid to the brake lights relay:
