Looks like it 4 out of the 5 would have stopped it by themselves.

Of course you know about the orientation of the diode? You can use a 1-3 amp diode.

Thanks, Yes I figured out the orientation from the wiring diagram for the polarity. Great diagram BTW. I am hoping the dealer will have these parts or can get them fairly quick.. I live in a retirement area and golf is huge here as are the Club Car carts. Dealer is a modern facility and see the Club Car semi trailer here quite often.

I am really enjoying this so far and just hope I don't get hooked like some guys do

OK folks heres an update.

I replaced the faulty M/S's and diode and wired up an off on key switch. I triple checked the wiring to the solenoid and that looks correct.

the inside and out Micros on the F/R switch have both normally closed and normally open contact terminals.

Which are the correct terminals??

I have tried both ways and the solenoid now clicks but acts differently depending on where I put the wires on those terminals.

Still no Forward or reverse movement at all

I checked the wiring on the F/R sw on an identical cart and how the solenoid operates. Mine does not operate the same way

The solenoid on mine energizes when the F/R sw is put in forward or reverse and clicks off in neutral. If the speed pedal is pushed down in forward or reverse it kicks off the solenoid. Thoughts??

One MS is wired normally open when it should be normally closed....

You are close

The F&R micros should only bring power to the V-glide Micro so the V-glide micro is the one that's wired reversed

I think that's it

I just realized then verified with a meter that the micro I put in the wiper housing is a N/C it should be a N/O like the one that came out. Thats why the solenoid is kicking off when I press the pedal DUH ME

The micro was right. It is closed when the pedal is at rest then opens when the pedal is pushed. I really would like to know how its supposed to work I think its backwards

I put a normally closed micro in place of the one I took out because I think the wrong one was put in by someone else. One of the small nuts has been forced out of its holder leading me to believe that the po was in there.

Tracing the wiring diagram the micro will now send power to the F/R Sw micro which should energize the solenoid when the pedal is pushed down. Then I can trace the F/R functions. Its starting to make a little more sense.

Sorry if Im boring you guys but it helps to think out loud sometimes....

Default Re: 1994 DS Series *** FIXED***

My hunch was correct. The micro in the speed switch had been changed with the WRONG ONE. I replaced it with the WRONG ONE.

It needs to be normally closed, which is opened when the pedal is at rest thus opening the circuit. When the pedal is pressed it shuts sending the power to the solenoid. Its all right there on the bloody wiring diagram

As soon as I figured that out all the rest of it fell into place

I have Forward and Reverse. I still need to get the buzzer going as well as the headlights which I assume pull power from the solenoid. I will figure it out

Thanks to the members who helped me out. Beers on me!!

Nite all
