The picture really helps! I've been working on this diagram (http://www.lvssales.com/images/88-03...ecoils_36v.jpg) which would be more helpful if it had a color to number legend. What your picture shows me is that the power wire to ignition key should be hooked to the lower left connector on the f/r switch. On mine it's hooked to the white wire coming out of the lower right part of the charger input. I'll check it this evening and let you know how it goes. Thanks so much for all your help; let's hope this works!

Ok guys, here's where we stand. I swapped the wires per the picture (by the way Oxfordlawn, it really helped!!!!). I now have power at the keyswith and through the microswitch on the f/r switch, but the cart still wouldn't move. Next i jumped across the two big terminals on the solenoid and put it in gear and walla! the cart finally moves in forward and reverse! I'm assuming that means that i actually had two problems: 1) somebody wired the ignition switch wrong and 2) the solenoid is bad. What say i just order a new solenoid and call the problem solved?

How did you verify that the solenoid IS the problem?

i jumped a wire between the two main posts on the solenoid and then put it in gear and it worked. The microswitch on the f/r switch worked once i rewired it according the oxfordlawn's picture and notes. Doesn't this mean the solenoid is bad?

NO,no, no.

The solenoid is a switch. The 2 small posts are the activation circut. when you put positive to 1 small post and negative to the other small post the switch closes (makes contact) When you jump a solenoid you are just taking it out of the equation not testing it...... how would you test a solenoid?

I don't know. That's what a guy on another website said to do. Do you have any suggestion?

great but dont forget you need a ground on the other side of the solenoid, on the other small terminal. You need a power and a ground to make the solenoid activate. Make sure the ground side is working. Like I said, the ground side goes from the negative terminal on the back of the charge receptacle, thru the microswitch in the VGlide assembly and then to the solenoid. the microswitch closes and allows the ground path thru the microswitch as you push the gas pedal down.
Just double check that before you order a new solenoid. Very well could be no good, but just do that last check before you order a new one

Let me simplify it a little more....You need positive on 1 small term and negative on the other small terminal to activate the solenoid.... turn the key on and check ....do you have pos or neg present at either one of the small terminals? What about with the gas peddle pressed? The key is on? She is on jack stands? and the F&R is in gear? Okay you found pos or neg at one terminal Right? So make a jumper wire with alligator clips and supple the missing current to the other small solenoid terminal....... she clicks? now check for power going thru the solenoid when she clicks ..... If it works you need to look at all of the micros and key switch for the problem. Good Luck!

Thanks for the help! I know this is not as complicated as it sounds, but it sure sounds complicated....my MGB is easier to work on! I'll check all this tomorrow night and let you know how it turns out. thanks.

Just remember the solenoid is a light switch. it needs + and - to actuate the switch which i sjust power in / power out

SO just jumping it doesn't mean it is bad .... jus means it isn't working
