Default 2005 Precedent Suddenly quit working

hi all

I have a 2005 CC Precedent that I have had for about a year. I recently put new batteries in the cart and the cart ran fine for about a week (although I did forget to put the run/tow switch in tow when reconnecting the cables, the cart ran for a week) My wife backed the cart out of the campsite the other day, flipped the fwd/rev switch to fwd and nothing. The cart is dead. I did some troubleshooting, have 53 volts across the pack (not under load). I thought I may have fried the controller and some of the CC troubleshooting pointed to that so I replaced it with no luck. The cart is still dead. The solenoid does not click when the pedal is pressed. I tried jumping the two large terminals of the solenoid with no luck. (There is pack voltage at the 2 large solenoid terminals) I read through the coil per the CC manual for 180-200 ohms and had 190. One thing I did notice is the reverse buzzer doesn't seem to work unless I plug the charger in for a few minutes. Then the buzzer works until the battery is disconnected again for more troubleshooting. The amp meter on the charger goes to below 5 amps in just a couple of minutes so I am sure the batteries are charged. I am at a loss, any ideas?

Thanks!

The batteries are brand new. I've checked all cables for security. I checked the forward/reverse switch (there are no other switches that I am aware of). I did check the fuse, it is also good.

I do have the service manual, that is what I've been using to troubleshoot with. I replaced the controller with no joy. I am going to wring the wiring tonight and see if I can find anything.

I got it figured out, thanks for the help. It was the high pedal switch in the MCOR. When i jumper the connector, the cart runs fine. The switch is open when the pedal is up (as it should be) but stays open when the pedal is depressed. New MCOR on order!

Just a follow a follow up...I replaced the MCOR and the cart now works as advertised. The high pedal switch is bad. I haven't had a chance to look too far into the old MCOR but it seems the housing is sealed and it will be difficult or impossible to get in to replace the switch.
