Default PLease help me Im a newbie.. 1990 Club cart trouble.

Hello everyone. I just joined this site and have gotten some good info so far. Thanks so much.. I have a 1990 DS Club cart 36 volt that I just purchased cheap and it wont run at all. I have read alot on here and did some tests and I am at a point where I think I MAY have a resolution.. The batteries were badly corroded and some other connections were bad. I fixed that. My cart wont do anything. I charged the batteries and tonight I listened for the click when I depress the pedal from the single solenoid that it has and no click so I jumped across it. When I jumped it, I put it in forward and the wheels went forward withOUT depressing the pedals. I moved to reverse and did the same. The rear wheels went in revearse without depressing pedal. I thought that IF I jump across the solenoid that only when I depress the pedal that the wheels will move if the solenoid is bad. SO does that mean I have a bad F/R switch or is it still a bad solenoid, OR something else. I'm sorry for my ignorance if this is an easy issue. I can fix pretty much anything but I have zero experience with golf carts. Thanks in advance for any help on this matter..

Welcome to BGW!
A 90 CC is a resistor coil cart, NO? Is there a row of bed springs behind the batteries? I recently saw a CC act like this. It had 2 problems. 1 was a failure in the solenoid activation circuit. 2 was the throttle position indicator lever was not returning to zero in the V-glide. (the solenoid coould be bad also?)

Makes sure the solenoid is good by testing the activation. to activate connect pos (pack voltage) to 1 small terminal and neg to the other = the solenoid should click. Just because it clicks does not mean it works. check for continuity between the 2 large posts after it clicks.... so non before(off) and continuity after it clicks (on)

Sounds like Scottyb is on the right track with this.... Does the solenoid click?

There was no click. I got a solenoid and it fixed the cart. Thanks for the help guys =)
