Default Problems with Club Car

My Club Car, about 2005 vintage frequently does not go when pressing the accelerator pedal. When I push it a number of times and sometimes push the car back or forth it will then start working fine. Any ideas?

You didnt say for sure what year or model of Club Car you have "about 2005 vintage" isnt enough information, if in doubt give us serial number from below passenger glove box. It always help us when trying to help you with problems to know what cart we are talking about? There are different voltages, drive control systems and even models ( DS or Precedent models ) so please give us more info??
Have you checked batterys all cables for good connections especially at batterys? Depending on which model you have you tried switching the F&R back and forth while trying to go? Sounds like a intermitant bad connection so when we have correct info on year and model we can help you?

Old Mec, thanks for the reply. The serial number is PQ0437-434798. I have checked all cables and batteries. You can hear what sounds like a pick up relay trying to make connection as you press down on the pedal. The problem is very intermittent but is persistent in that it has been doing this for a while.

From what little info I have on later later models your Club Car is a 2004 Precedent and they are all IQ controlled. Sounds like you have a solenoid thats not making contact all the time? They can click but still not make contact inside.
Normally I would say to jack up rear wheels and jumper large cable studs on solenoid BUT this is too new a cart for me give such advise as you could do damage to controller etc if run-tow switch is in wrong position etc.
HELP SCOTTYB or TAHOEDAWGZ71 as you both would be working with this model and have correct info for forum member?
SORRY RTRIM3 better to be safe than sorry?

Thanks again Old Mec. The one most admirable quality in an expert is to know when not to give an answer. I appreciate your help and the redirection of the question to others.

Try opening up your seat and prop it open and let controls dry out. The Precedent supposedly are sealed better than older DS micro switches on F&R switch, but sounds like water has gotten into some part? If your weather is like mine ( 98 high and 80 for low ) it will dry out over night?
