In reading back through this thread I realized I never confirmed that your cart has a controller and is not a resistor cart. I have made several references to the controller and you did not say you did not have one.The following is only applicable if you have a controller.

Once we get this thing going you are going to need to get the diode to protect the controller. I still think you are not getting power to the activation circuit based on a test I had you do earlier. Here is how we can check for sure.

1.Put your negative lead from multi-meter on the negative battery post of the firs battery in series (it will have a big cable going from it through the OBC and connected to the B- terminal on the controller). Put your positive lead from multi-meter on the solenoids small terminal with red wire connected. Put the key on, F&R lever in forward, and depress the go pedal. You should get a reading of pack voltage after pressing the pedal and 0 before. If not getting pack voltage when pressing pedal, then you are not getting power to the activation circuit and will need to back track down this circuit to find out where you are loosing it. According to wireing diagram (you can find in the stickies) this is the path: Voltage sent thru key, to a microswitch in the Vglide, then out to micro on f/r lever, and then to the solenoid. So back tracking the next thing to check would be the micro switch in the F&R lever.

2.Put your positive multi-meter lead on the top lead from microswitch with the black-white wire connected (see first photo). Negative multi-meter lead same as before. Put F&R lever in forward and depress the go pedal. You should get pack voltage, if so then micro switch is good and you have broken wire between F&R and solenoid. If no pack pack voltage then step 3

3. move positive multi-meter lead to other terminal on micro switch. Key on push pedal should get pack voltage. If so then bad F&R micro switch. If not go to step 4

4. The green and white wire coming out of the v-glide should have a connector you can disconnect and put your positive lead on this connector. Negative lead same as before. With F&R in forward, press the go pedal. You should get pack voltage. If so then broken wire between v-glide and F&R. If no pack pack voltage then step 5

5.Check v-glide micro switch.The easiest way to check it is to check continuity on it mine has a blue wire and a green-white wire coming out of the v-glide that are from that switch. Mine had connectors about four inches down the wire. I disconnected the connectors and put one lead of multi-meter in one connector and other lead in other connector (see second photo). Use the ohm meter on multi meter. Micro switch off should be "open" switch on should be "short". If switch on is short then it is good go to step 6

6. Check blue wire coming from on off switch. With on-off switch off connect positive lead to blue wire coming from switch. disconnect connector on blue wire coming out of v-glide and put positive lead on "on-off" switch side of that connector. negative lead same place as before. Turn on-off switch to on. Should have pack voltage. If not then bad on off switch or broken wire from on off switch back to v-glide.

If you just want to do a quick check of the micro switches, just check continuity on both. Use the ohm meter on multi meter. switch off should be "open" switch on should be "short". I described how to check v-glide with out opening it in step 5 above.

Here is the wiring diagram I referred to.

Did step one and have pack voltage at small terminal

Does that mean bad solenoid ???

I spent half the day coming up with that test procedure and you stopped at step 1. LOL
OK
When you performed this test:
Put the negative lead on the small yellow post of the solenoid and the positive lead on the large red post of the solenoid. You should see full battery voltage. If not, the OBC is not grounding the solenoid and it is either not properly hooked up, or it's bad.
you said you got pack voltage which indicates that the OBC is providing negative to one post of the activation circuit on solenoid.
Step one from my procedure indicates that you have positive (pack voltage) at the other terminal of the activation circuit when pedal is pushed.
If the solenoid does not click then you must have a bad solenoid.
What has me confused is earlier I had you perform this test:
"Going back to the solenoid, it does not click. First we determine if voltage is present across the small solenoid terminals. If we read 48 volts when pedal pushed and the solenoid does not click, replace the solenoid. If you do not read voltage we have to determine where we are losing the voltage."
You said you got zero and that should have indicated that you were not getting voltage to the activation circuit. Regardless it sure seems like a bad solenoid to me.

That had full pack reading as well I agree I think the new solenoid is bad ?

Changed it with another solenoid and still nothing any other ideas

Is this still the situation: it will run if you jump the solenoid and solenoid does not click when you press the go pedal?
Can you post what solenoid you are trying to use and a picture of how it is wired? Attached is a picture of my solenoid installed for reference.
