Default 96 CC powerdrive solenoid

I have a 96 CC 48V Powerdrive,just put new batteries in and a new solenoid.car didnt run when i bought it.After I put batteries in i thought the solenoid was bad and replaced it. I read about resetting the OBC and did that and solenoid did start clicking. I do have 50 volts on the other side of solenoid.It also clicks when i turn on the key. I have looked the car over and cannot find any loose wires or smashed ones. I have also looked for a wiring schematic for this model and cannot find an exact one. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. ideas controller?? OBC ?? Motor ??

Sounds like a Regen 1 because you say that the solenoid clicks when you turn on the key... It's a little black GE controller mounted directly above the motor facing downward towards the ground. This is probably the biggest piece of junk controller Club Car ever used... That's why they only used them for 2-3 years. My money is on the controller being bad... It usually is... On the other hand... if you have a series car, (Lever operated F&R) you've got some wiring issues if the solenoid is behaving this way.

Thanks for the reply, the controller is silver and is made by GE.The f/r switch is the not the lever style.I have a feeling they changed some things on this model half way thru the year.I have had no luck finding a schematic that matches the model i have. Does the solenoid clicking when the key is turned on sound like a wire in the wrong place ?? I wired it up the way it was when i got the car. the solenoid is a lester 4 post rectangler shaped.

It's a Regen 1 converted to Regen 2.... The solenoid clicking is normal... however it sounds as if you've got a bad potentiometer or solenoid. Use the stickies to check the Potentiometer frequencies. Also check the motor for continuity between the A1 and A2 posts and the S1 and S2 (May be F1 and F2, same thing) No cross continuity, only same letter post to same letter post... If it passes both tests you're gonna need a new controller.
