Default '92 CC will move in reverse, but, no forward...

This happened yesterday over some rough terrain... (not THAT rough). I had to drive it home in reverse. When in forward the solenoid made a pretty bad noise...sort of a fast alternator clicking type sound.

Today I replaced the solenoid and the micro-switch...nothing. Same as yesterday.

There is no juice at all in forward. REverse seems weak.

Batteries are (were anyway) in good shape and could drive it several days on a charge.

Thanks in advance for any help!!! I've checked all the wires I can see and can't find anything.

Any ideas???

Sounds like clicking from a low amperage result of a bad connection...... Check cables and F&R contacts

is there any way to tell if the F/R contacts are working? I believe it's a connection problem, but, some of the old (little) wires are tough to see. Don't really know what to do at this point.

He had a seeing eye dog. Would have been an open that arched due to 93's had 1/2 speed on rev. on battery pack, would not move in forward. Had an open on an old van wouldn't put any voltage out.
