Default Cart lost speed and won't climb

I have an 88 Club Car DS. It has a lift kit and a rear seat has been added.
Until recently it ran fine. Now it will not climb hills and I have lost speed. The batteries have been replaced and that did not solve the issue. About a year ago two solenoids were replaced and I think I it was told the #2 and master.

I have tightened every wire in the cart which is the extent of my mechanical ability.

Any ideas?

New batteries have to go thru multiple charge cycles before coming up to full potential . . . assuming all else with cart is ok, wait until you have charged the batteries several (10+ cycles) and see if it improves . . . if not, then the techs here can help you diagnose your problem . . .

its also quite possible you lost your higher speed solenoids.......jack rear up and run thur paces..........listen for all 5 solenoid clicks and watch wheels to see if speed increases with every solenoid click..............................

Remember the part where I said tightening wires is the extent of my mechanical ability? However, I am willing to try and check the solenoids myself. What does "run thur (thru) paces" exactly mean.

I really appreciate all the feedback!

While rear of cart is up in air, slowly accelerate, listen for solenoid clicks and watch if wheels speed up at each click to next speed . . .
