Default Well the volt meter lights up and thats all

I wired everything up last night and today and wellllll the volt meter works. nothing else. lmao. I knew it wouldn't but glad to see something worked.
Question: On the HD F&R micro switch, are there supposed to be two wires coming off of it? and if so where do they go to? a diagram would be nice. Its converted 48v series with 500amp alltrax controller.

First you are dealing with a greenhorn as this is the first time I have atempted to do anything like this before. I started with a 96DS 36v series cart with resistors. I tore it down to the frame. Did away with everything except the charger plug-in and the key switch. Got a 6" suspension from imaginative and a high torque motor (was going to do his 4x4 conversion but ran out of money, will add later), got a axe 500 controller from Scottyb along with all the HD wires, solenoid and F&R Switch, and got a votage reducer from everything carts along with a light kit and seat covers. I wish I knew how to put pictures on here so you could see how I have it wired. Thanks for the input Shadow

it runs forward and backwards now. Light on controller does not come on though I am working with scotty on this matter. yeas I have Diagrams but not 1 with everything (controller, solenoid, v-reducer, HD F&R,) showing how to tie all these together. Told ya I am Green. I am figureing it out though its kinds\a fun to tell wife I got to stay in garage to fix cart(drink beer)

Sometimes that's all it takes ! Sort of gives you time to ponder the situation .
