Default Problems changing Solenoid

Just changed the Solenoid on my 91 HA. The old Solenoid would click and sometimes go but other times would not.
The new one does not even click, checked the connections and made sure that the wires where the same as the old one and still no joy.

Any suggestions?

so the problem was intermittent before you changed the solenoid? have you checked all your connections for corrosion this was keeping my cart from doing anything. are you getting voltage across the small terminals on the solenoid

If the jumper cable across the 2 large terminals fails to move the cart.... then one of the following is happening:
You will need a voltmeter to check ...
1. you do not have 36v present at the solenoid
2. the F&R is bad
3.the controller is fried
4.there is a bad cable or connection
5.the motor is bad

I have 38.1V across the small terminals.

How do I check the rest?
Thanks for the reply

I have 12.6V at the 1st Large Terminal (Red)and 11.1 at the second (Yellow). Does this make any sense?

To test the large terminals ..... 1 test lead at the neg battery pack and 1 at the solenoid ...should be 38v also. The solenoid is a on/off switch for the power

That is what I did, but only getting 12.1V with the key on, nothing with the key off.

Looking at the wireing diagram for this car, where can I find descriptions for the numbers in the circles, ie nbr 52?
