Default Reverse Only Club Car DS Series

My cart all of a sudden quit going forward. Put it in reverse and it goes. I don't see any lose wires and I cleaned the contacts on the forward/reverse switch. When in forward, I hear a clicking sound much like what you hear on a car with a dead battery. I have NO experience dealing with electric golf carts. I plugged up the charger and it seems as if it will not take a charge.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Quote " I plugged up the charger..." Does this up mean in?

Reply Quote " switch might have gone up on you" Does this up mean out ?

Still doesn't make sense to me. I never knew there was an up or down adjustment on a Forward/Reverse switch. Either way...doesn't have anything to do with the batteries not charging.


Double check all your connections and make sure they are clean and tight. Make sure they don't look burnt.

Thanks for all the input. I cleaned all of the cables and found two that were in questionable condition. Replaced these two and BAMMMM, it works.
Thanks to all.

That's nicer than the pm I got! if two cables were in bad enough condition to make the cart not go up in forward....how far off do you think the rest of them are from the same condition? Are they all they same age? Cables corrode on the inside and resist electric current. Good luck.

OK Guys. Here's another way you will have reverse and no forward.
The reverse runs off the first 3 batts on the drivers side. If these batts
are good, you have a reverse. Forward funs off the total pack. On this
particular cart, the last battery was totally shot, which would not let
the current flow . I put a used battery in it's place and the cart is
back in business.

That depends on what model cart you have. Only the resistor style 36 volt club cars use 18 volts for reverse.
