Default 1988 Electric Club Car Takes Off

I just got this cart and don't know anything about electric carts, so trying to figure it out. I've went through checking the wiring, it all looks good. But no matter whether the key is on or off, as soon as you turn the lever to forward or reverse, the cart takes off. Any suggestions where to start?

yeah your solenoid is stuck in the on position......if its a 5 solenoid cart its the furthest left one on drivers side the other 4 are speeds.......try rapping the master see if that does anything if not you need to replace it........36 volt golfcart solenoid................good luck enjoy it and have fun but yes take care of that problem..............................

Shadowman. You was completely correct. I tapped on the solenoid and it was fine. Thank you very much. After doing what you said, i was able to take it for a ride right away. Short distance cause the batteries were low. I charged them completely, but didn't last long. I'm gonna have to replace the batteries, but happy I got to atleast ride it today. Thanks. I want to research changing to 12 volt batteries and save some money. Farther down the road
