Does your car bump just a little each time you try?

you need to go over all the wiring cause you can use 12 volt batts, depending on what you did you might have burnt the controller...........if its a 97 and the controller is black they are junk anyways but you had to mis wire something.......did the solenoid have a resistor and diode mounted on it?............................................... ....

I agree with shadowman...You had to hook something up wrong. 12 volt batteries will work but your run time will suffer. If you can't find a diagram just ask. Someone will have one.

aw-- jack your car up, then have someone push the pedal for you... see what voltage is getting to the small posts on your solenoid when pedal is depressed with keyswitch on, and car in forward. If you are not getting atleast 48 volts then you have a problem before solenoid, if you are getting voltage then your problem is the solenoid or later. That should help you eliminate half the cars systems anyways...
