Default Dead cart, possible dead Solenoid

Newbie:
2004 Club Cart ds just died.
Yesterday, I replaced the battery cables from 2.0 to 4.0. Well not all the cables. The two cables going to the controller and soleniod are still 2.0.
When i finished i rolled the cart out of the garage, reverse horn buzzed, put the f/r switch in forward and started moving, stopped to go into reverse and the cart died.
after several hour later and reading alot threads I'm lost.

checked the batteries good 8.3 volts per batt. 51.0 over all.
checked key switch 50.1 volts
checked the power to the Solenoid large post 50.1 volts both post
checked the power to the Solenoid small post .31 volts
checked all wiring appears to be good
checked fuses good
no wiring seems to be bad
i tried to jump the Solenoid with a 2.0 gauge wire nothing.
f/r switch looks good

now i'm lost for thought
my feeling is the Solenoid is bad PLEASE HELP

Thanks in advance.

there is 50v across the sol with the key off? not good. if you jumped from large post to large post on the sol and nothing happened it sounds like the prob is beyond the sol.recheck all your wiring. why the heck do you have 50v at the key?

CORRECTION

Thanks for the reply
I rechecked the Soleniod with the key off post to post 2.049 volts, key on 1.97 volts, post to gound 50.1 volts, second post to ground 48.9
rechecked the key post with the key off nothing, key on 50.1 volts

still nothing

if i jumped the soleniod should the cart have moved?

Is there a chance that you "spun" one of your motor lugs when changing the cables?

When you step on the pedal with key on, does the solenoic "click"?

BGW has "smilies" for that!



In the past, I have seen that if a battery terminal connection is not tight,
it will show full pack voltage, but, it will break the minute you put a load on it! (pressing the go pedal)
thus, a "no go" situation like you have!

Just for ****s & giggles... loosen, then retighten all of your battery terminal connections!

It couldn't hurt!

Well... that was my only suggestion, since you've only replaced the cables between the batteries!

Maybe someone else will chime in and help... but it may not be tonight,
so have a seat, grab an adult beverage, and chill for the evening!
