Default solenoid problem

hello all im having problems with a 97 club car 48volt, when i press the gas pedal it clicks, the clicking sound seems to be coming from the solenoid and the little triangle box that controls the speed, i checked the solenoid it has 51 volts on both large post BUT when i press the foot pedal it clicks once and i loose power on one side of the solenoid. any idea's

That's nuts. It sounds like it is operating the oposite of how it is suppose to???

Check the micro-switch inside the Vglide

I have the same problem as you, and no one has responded to my thread unfortunately:

'00 Club Car - Possible speed controller issue?

I have a feeling it's the speed control because the F/R switch, V glide, on/off switch, Tow/Run switch, OBC, and motor seem to be working just fine. I wouldn't doubt the speed control burned up because of the lift/tires and how long we operate the cart at WOT.

Basically our motor isn't getting power from the speed controller, so that being said I just went ahead and bought a Alltrax DCX400PD+

Also, since my cart is a Regen II you can't apparently bypass the OBC to check if it's the OBC preventing the cart from running or not. I would assume that if the OBC was bad it wouldn't charge correctly.

Hey johnysland , sounds like you may have a short to ground Chassis someplace.
With the Volt meter set to ohms , connect the + lead to the first Battery +
and the Neg - lead to the Chassis, Reading ?,
Press peddle , Reading ?

On CC sparkys you should always read infinity if it goes to 0 ohms , something is shorted ?

cool thanks, ill try that in the morning, also oddly enough i tapped the micro switches lightly with a rubber mallet for shits and geegles and the golf cart worked until i switched from forward to reverse then dead again at any rate ill check for a grouning problem and im going to replace all three micro's, maybe its one of these issues, thanks again

i just think its odd that when i press the gas pedal i loose power to 1 side of the solenoid, The guy i bought the micro switches from thinks it could be the battteries, but power seems good other than it has been getting slower in reverse, they are putting out 51volts i will load test them soon but i don't think that would be the problem.

Sounds like it time for a new solinoid (do not use automotive solinoids)
