Here's an important tip: Respect that battery pack at all times. It has LOADS of potential to surprise you with a careless wrench or loose cable.

Install the new solenoid FIRST and test the cart. Make sure it runs with the new solenoid BEFORE you switch out the controller. I know this takes more time, but you'll thank me later. Besides, it builds your confidence that you know what you are doing. Good luck, yell if you have questions.

the 4 point plug is not used on the new controller....

it is used on the origional controller to program connecting to the plug under the dash board or under the f/r switch depending where yours is located...

you can used this existing harness now for other things like radio or converters etc..you have 4 isolated wires to play with

FORBRUCE:

It looks like we have the same cart...can you send me a photo of how you installed your controller?

I just installed mine and it will only go a few feet forward and a few feet backward...????

I got the solenoid that scotty at carts unlimited sent with it and it already had the jumper installed so what do I do with the original 2 wires??

Any help you can give would be great...you could even call me at 919-625-8921....very frustrated, Kyle

Please define "jumper". Not familiar with this term in this context.

Did you install the new solenoid first followed by a test run as instructed?

He is referring to the DIODE across the coil as a JUMPER
