Go to basic's and check battery for charge and condition, them clean ALL battery cable ends and check contacts. You really need a single float hydrometer ( auto parts store )and a digital volt meter ( Harbor Freight $5.00 ) to run and maintain your cart batterys. Look at STICKIES ABOVE for "State Of Charge Readings"
Then you can finally start to check what the problem is AFTER confirming batterys and cables are in good operating condition.

Have you checked battery and cable conditions, without battery power you wont have any clicking etc happening? Its like a car with the key turned off if you dont have 36 plus volts you have nothing.

In the early "stock" carts ( I find that many carts that old have been converted in some manner ) like yours there was either 4 or 5 micro switches inside a white box with red ends mounted on top of frame rail under drivers seat. Connected to pedal and inside the white box is a plastic board afair cut in various lengths that touches micro's in sequence that turns on solenoids to change speed.
The tracing order is as follows
#1 power to key switch
#2 power from key switch to micro on back of F&R switch
#3 power from micro on F&R AFTER either placed in F or R to 4 or 5 micro's inside white box with red ends
#4 micro in white box to first solenoid ( master power feed ) that feeds through brass bar to other solenoids
#5 micro's in white box to the other solenoids to give changing speed by going through solenoids to large coil resistors in sequence
Hope this helps you check for problem?

Now "SPEED" on an old CC like yours means either major changes to late model parts, Curtis PB-6 throttle control, ALLTRAX solid state controller, Solenoid, 4 gauge wiring, HD F&R switch, 6 new 8 volt batterys OR 2 additional 6 volt batterys to make a 48 volt cart out of your 36 volter, OR TRADE UP TO A 2000 and up "DS CC" with 8 volt batterys.
