Question Where to start?

Was given a 2000 Club Car, put 6 new batteries in it, followed wiring diagrams from this site, cart will do nothing.
It has the V Guide according to the wiring diagram.
I checked the battery pack in series and get 37.5 volts.
Got around 18.8 v on the seloniod.
Where do I start to see if it has bad componets?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Welcome to bgw .....
When you step on the gas do you hear the solenoid clicking? If not you can jack it up and install a jumper cable across the two large solenoid terminals... then try the gas ...if she rolls the tires it's either a bad solenoid OR a bad solenoid activation circuit

No controller box, it has a key switch, F/R switch, Wiper switch, and Resistor Group.
Getting the names off a picture of the wiring diagram off this site,

That will be an easier cart to fix Put the cart on blocks for safety!

Can you verify that the does have a resistor group and V-glide? Remove the cover from the V-glide. It is the black pie shaped box mounted to the frame under the seat. It has 3 clips on the cover..... See that the linkage is intack and the wiper arm moves across all of the copper lugs. Now test the micro switch inside the V-glide for continuity when key on ( in gear) and none when off.
Also take 2 test leads 1 neg and 1 pos and touch them to the small terminals of the solenoid? Does it click? It should if it is good.....

No contunity in the switch in the middle of the V glide.
I removed the wires and it shows 37.6 volts.
Linkage moves freely.
How much voltage to put on seloniod?

36v +/-
You have a bad microswitch there? Inside the V-glide? Or no power to it?

The micro switch has no contunity, it is a 3 wire type switch witw wires on the top and bottom spades.
I put my voltmeter on the wires and got the 37 volts.
If I jump the wires should the cart move?

The micro is an on/off switch 1 wire brings power in from the key? and other sends power out to activate the solenoid. Did you. the cart should be on blocks = no movement or somebody could get hurt....... the micro should close the solenoid and the speed wiper in the v-glide should then make the wheels turn
