Default Lightning Stike - Cart charges but will not move

I have a 96 CC 48v powerdrive DS that most likely took a lightning strike. Several itmes in my barn blew out from a lightning strike and now the cart does not move. The charger that was plugged in still works (hums), the cart batteries are all fine, the fuse in the yellow holder looks fine, the solenoid clicks, the reverse buzzer works. Someone told me it may be the computer, is there any way to check it or can it be anything else?

Thanks for the Help

If the solenoid clicks the computer is not the problem....

Any idea of what I can check?
How many volts should the solenoid read when I step on the pedal - 48v?
Are there any other hidden fuses?
Any way to check the electric motor?

tried to jump the yellow wire - still didn't work
tried to reset the computer - didn't work
can the link between the solenoid posts cause it?
can the solenoid burn out and still click?
Can I test the controller?

yes a clicking soleniod can be bad so you can jack the rear up and jump the large post see if wheels spin........you can test the controller however you,ll want the service manual for that cart to do a step by step......anything else is a waste.....................you said the charger hums? does amp meter on front work?...........................does the soleniod have a diode and resistor on it?..................................

OK I'll try to jump the solenoid tonight
The meter looks like it's woring fine - I plugged it into another cart and it appeared to be working fine
yes it has a diode/ resistor I guess - looks like a straw in a u shape between the posts.

you want to make sure the charger works on your cart......thats good if it works on another cart and won,t work on your cart that tells us which way to go.............the fuse on the charger receptical is good right? not the one in the wire the one 80 amper that sits right on the receptical when you lift the seat......has an oblong clear plastic cover on it...........make sure it didn,t blow that fuse it has to be good.....it dosn,t look like a regular fuse and some people don,t even know its a fuse.......................................

I'll double check the charger tonight - but last time it was plugged in I'm pretty sure it was humming.
I checked the large fuse last night - it looked fine
I used an ohm meter - I put one wore on each post & it went to zero so I think that means it ok - but I'm that stuff is new to me.
