First check the micros at the F&R .... Can you check them for continuity?

Did the micros at the F&R test good? You may have a bad F micro?

The micros are a can of worms. There are two bolts through the box to the frame. disconnect linkage under the cart. From above, remove the 2 bolts and the micros slide out with the plastic slide which activates them .... remember how everything goes back together. Each micro should have a clean crisp click when tripped.

You don't need to take this apart if the activation circuits are all good at the solenoids?

Have you tested the activation circuits at the solenoids or are you just moving solenoids around?

i am not skilled at testing the activation circuits at the solenoids.... can you clue me in..
i did check the two solenoids that i changed for a short.... they seemed ok... i don't plan to move any of the other solenoids.... the new solenoid that i bought last year has one of the small wire posts that turns....don't know if that indicates anything... it is a genuine club car solenoid, not a chinese piece of junk.. but i don't know why the post would move.

Testing the solenoid activation circuit is much simpler than taking the speed indicator box apart. first an overview of the solenoid.

A quick overview of the solenoid is :
The solenoid is a HD on/off switch or Contactor
the connection is made /broken between the 2 large terminals. The 2 small terminals are the activation circuit. typically one terminal will have a constant negative connection to the pack. When Positive power is applied toi the second terminal the contact is drawn up against the spring to make contact. When power from either side of the activation circuit is removed then contact is released and the spring pushes it away interrupting the circuit ...It doesn't matter which terminal is neg or pos.

Simply test for the pos and neg at activation... one will be constant (key on) and the other triggered by the micro switches

It is never good when an electrical terminal spins. This usually twists the connection off on the inside. carefully double nut it so one nut secures it to the base. then use 2 wrenches to tighten the wire nut. Do not over tighten the little nuts need only a few ft/pds pressure. Let me know if it does not pass the activation test. I can set you up with a new set?

sorry to be late responding,, had to cut down a tree..

the new solenoid (club car oem) is the one that the small post was twisting... perhaps i need to replace that one and the main one on driver side... or maybe replace all of them and keep 3 for spares... thanks for explaining the workings of a solenoid... now i'm trying to figure what you mean by checking solenoid for activation... if i apply voltage at the poles, should i hear any type of noise? do i apply at small posts or the large posts.... like i said before,,, when all are connected, i can read full 38v at each of the solenoids except the driver's side main solenoid... is there suppose to be a reading there too?

scotty.....latest...... i removed the micro switch on the forward/reverse lever... it is shot.
would that be a major cause for no voltage getting to the solenoids? i tried to get readings across the small posts on the solenoids by pushing on the throttle pedal... no readings... i am hoping the micro switch is the cause.... don't know when i will get to a shop for a new switch...
