Default Re: Problems changing Solenoid

Those readings indicate that the solenoid is activated... If it doesn't deactivate (click) when you turn the cart on/off then it is hot all the time and not wired correctly?

I will disconnect the wires from the small terminals. Could it be that the yellow and the red and white should be switched? Or could the resistors be connected to the wrong terminals?

I have taken the solenoid out and reinstalled as per the wiring diagram and still nothing.

Removed the three micro switches and found the 3rd one (inside to the speed control) was defective, Changed it with nbr 2 which I believe is for the Reverse buzzer and when I tried the go pedal, I heard a spark. I believe that I also heard the solenoid click at the same time. Don't know what shorted but now I get nothing again.
Perhaps I need to find some new micro switches. Any suggestions?

Great to hear that! Sometimes hard for us to say what is wrong. Is it still fixed today? On another note it is hard for some of us to follow the whole red wire, yellow wire description as the colors change year to year and model to model.... as techs we are more inclined to identify wires as to their origin and/or function... Anyway, real glad you have success!

Yes, it runs just like it used too. Also changed two of the micro switches now I have the Reverse Buzzer working again although I just might disconnect it cause it is a pain.
Thanks for all the leads and assistance.

Thanks Dave, your comment has great merit. I have left it alone.
