Default tow/run solenoid click but no go

First I will state that I have not had time to troubleshoot or research this, as we're off to the kids school, but I wanted to run this by the forum Gods to see if anyone had a though.

2000 Club Car DS 48 volt. Cart suddenly loss power and will not go, reports of a burning smell. That quickly faded. With the toggle switch in F and the Tow Run switch in TOW there is NO solenoid click at all, and the car will not go.

WHAT is ODD, is that when I move the tow/run switch back and fourth, the solenoid makes a clicking noise, I can feel it clicking. NO other cart I've been around or mine, 2001 does this. When I move mine from tow to run there is no clicking on the soleniod.

Thoughts?

Troy

First of all U should not get, nor anyone else should get a solinoid click with the SW in TOW.
It disconnects the electronics.

Actually that is not correct, I have done a LOT of research and this in the last 24 hours. This the first generation of Regens. They do click with the tow run as they are an ODD Duck. I have had three in my hands in the last two days all do the same, and function.. This needs link needs posted in the schematics but has not been yet..... check it out.

Avoid them if you can.. They're a pain.

The ones I have had my hand on are 1999 and 2000. But even the 2001-2002 parts manual shows that diagram and lists parts. My 01 is nothing like it, has an MCOR and 1 solenoid.

Talking Re: tow/run solenoid click but no go

Look at my ghosterdude IKE cart rebuild. Just got it up and running THIS week! Mine was NOT clicking...DROVE ME nuts. I know you said yours does click. But this was what resolved my non clicking problem.


The test: 1. turn the key to tow. 2. turn to run 3. If NO click sounds-You Jumper from {the top drivers side post on the controller} to {the passenger side solenoid- blue/whitestripe} *see crude attached paint file !!!!JUST TAP THE WIRE FOR A SECOND THEN REMOVE!!!! you should hear the solenoid click in.

my mechanic just wired in a toggle switch in that line (the pink one in the pic) that I could cut on and off.


*This is just manually doing what the controller is supposed to be doing for you. specifically the #3 pin on the controller if you wanna open er up and play computer geek.

Let me know if this works for you too.

Hang in there!
