Ok guys, here's the question: what does it mean if the solenoid is clicking when the gas pedal is pressed, but the cart's not moving at all? It only moves if I connect the two big posts on the solenoid with a jump wire. Then it's all fine. the microswitch on the f/r switch seem fine by the way.

If the solenoid clicks and no there is no continuity accross the big posts ...then the solenoid is bad.

Ok guys, there's good news and bad news. The good news is I replaced the solenoid and rewired based on Oxfordlawn's picture (very helpful by the way), and things worked beautifully all day. The bads new, all of the sudden it just quit - stone dead. The solenoid has 18v on one big terminal and 36 on the other when in r/f respectively and 36v on the front, small terminal and nothing on the other small terminal (ground). However, it no longer clicks at all - no sounds at all. Again, if i direct jump the two large posts it will work fine, but otherwise it won't move. Any thoughts? Sounds like a fried solenoid doesn't it - but it's brand new!

Also, the wiring diagram for this buggy has a slight difference regarding the solenoid, f/r switch, v-glide microswitch, and charger vs. what the picture oxfordlawn sent shows.

In oxfordlawn's picture, the small red wire from the ignition key switch attaches to the f/r switch with the other two red power wires - this is obviously where it get's it's power. The small blue wire from the other side of the ignition key switch switch then goes through the microswitch on the f/r switch and then on the solenoid. The ground on the solenoid goes back through the v-glide microswitch and then on to the ground on the back of the charger input. (Question: where does the v/glide microswitch get it's power? or is it just a mechanical connection that gives it a ground?)

However, the official wiring diagram has the small red ignition keyswitch wire coming from the back of the charger input at the white ground connection (not from the bottom of the f/r switch). And the v-glide microswitch is connected on one side to the solenoid ground and on the other to the f/r switch where it get's power. Does that make sense? Should i back up and rehook it up more like the wiring diagram says?

any suggestions?

hey guys,
I've still got troubles with my '92 Club Car. It's blown two solenoids now. They work for about a day, and then they just totally quit. Last weekend I met a nice guy who was towing a club car home. He told me that it was because I was charging the batteries with it in gear (f or r). I don't know that if it was in gear when charging or not, but does that even sound reasonable?
Any ideas?

I think, You know the solenoid small terminals just need a pos and a neg charge to activate it right? Sounds like you do? One of them can be constant and one should be switched at the V-glide .......Yes you can trash a solenoid just by leaving it engaged for hours on end. THey have a limited service life. I built a cart for a lady who kept going thru solenoids. The solenoid was wired to activate when put in gear. Turns out she would leave the cart in gear because she parked it on a hill About six months is all the best I had would last. I stopped wiring them that way

Would it make sense that it would blow/fry a solenoid in a day? Then another the next day? After driving it only for a half hour or so each time? What about the charging while in gear issue - have you ever heard of that frying a solenoid? Also my new 6 v Interstate batteries together put out 38v according to my voltmeter. Is that a problem with a 36v solenoid?

Experiencing similar issues with 93 CC V Gluide 36v....have a 90 CC 36V also, one wired one way, the other another pertaining to ignition. Need a diagram the 90 running strong the 93 needs the ignition wiring......can I just wire them the same?
