Buster45, WELCOME !
Check for output at the F/R switch in Reverse position. Physically you can look for broken cables and bad connections. You may simply have some corroded contacts since cart has sat for a long time? Undo, clean and reconnect cables on the Rev side of switch. Do you have a voltmeter to trace it out?

Check your F/R switch contacts. Wiggle the F/R switch back and forth with the pedal down and see if you can get some kind of movement in reverse.

As you probably figured, I'm pretty green on electrical things. I tried moving the reverse switch back and forth, still no movement. Does the forward side on the switch go to the solenoid and reverse side back to the motor?

IF you have tried jiggling and slamming the switch a couple of times and checked all of the connections you can find then I would give up. Honestly, without a background in DC electrics a high voltage cart is no place to learn with out a good instructor by your side. There is enough amperage under the seat to weld with. This might be a case of better safe than sorry...
But if you want to pursue it the wiring diagrams for the cart are posted in the stickies at the beginning of this section.

Is Your Reverse Cable Hooked Up To The Batteries?

that was my exact thought.... there is a wire that goes to your main positive to the f/r board, down on the bottom of that board there is another post, there should be a wire going from there to 18 volts positive

Thanks for all your help. I took pictures of my old battery setup prior to taking them out of the cart. Could see where everything went back except for one wire off the F/R switch. Looked at buddies cart and put it where he's is. Wrong, to neg on battery. Hooked up as diagrapm and it works, thanks a bunch. Will ask buddy at work about his reverse? tbc

So did you end up with the saftey version (18 volts) or the full speed version of reverse?
