Default Re: cart makes noise but won't move

To start with the 1996 CC was a transission year with several different controls and early and late models please I would like to have complete serial number to get better idea what your cart has for controls. Also do you know if OBC has been changed and what color is battery indicator on dash?
Now lets go back a little and let me confirm what happened?
#1 Question your key switch came apart ( is this a stock CC key switch ) and you put it back together CORRECT? Do you mean that the switch came loose from dash or really broke in pieces and you were able to repair?
#2 Question did you unhook batterys before taking dash panel loose so repairs could be done to switch? If you unhooked battery pack did you follow owners manual for procedure?
#3 Question after repairing key switch the following now happens "BEFORE TOUCHING PEDAL"?
A-You turn on key the main solenoid clicks? ( you have 2, one main, one regen )
B-You hear the F&R micro click without moving F&R rocker switch?
#4 NOW you press pedal and hear a sound like electricity ( is this a humming, buzzing or clicking sound ) is this correct order of sounds?
This may seem strange to ask about but gives me an idea what is happening to help diagnose problem.
Please send complete serial number and confirm if I am correct with what is happening so far.
