Default Club Cart motor/other problem?

We got an older club cart 70s/80s from a neighbor. It had been in storage for years. I cleaned it up, cleaned the electrical connections, lubed, got new batteries, etc. Seemed to run fine at first. Now you have to push the pedal slowing or it will not go. Even then somtimes it will not go in forward or reverse, you just have to keep slowing pushing the pedal and eventually it will go. You can hear the solenoid (or electric motor/switch) clicking each time you touch the pedal.

I am pretty handy, but don't know much about electric golf carts.

Does anybody know what this problem could be? How I might be able to fix it?

Thanks very much!

if it dosn,t have 3 pedals i beleive it would have to be an 80,s cart and should have 5 solenoids........the only way if you don,t have any of the manuals for the cart is to lift seat and look............will be a row of them 4 have coils mounted to the tops.................................

OK, I took some time this weekend and dug into this cart a bit more.

Serial Number = A9230 291972 (assume that means 1992 model)?
Motor Serial Number = 1012191
DC Controller = 1204-015

Now I looked for solenoids, but I really only see one from what I can tell?

In any case, at least I now have some more info.

The problem is the same, if you push the pedal too fast - no go. Push slowly and "usually" it will start to go and be fine until stopped again. I can hear a click everytime I hit the pedal, just sometimes it goes and other times you have to keep trying.

Any idea what that might be on this make/model?

Thanks again for your help

Bump and update.

I have cleaned all of the connectors. Confirmed the solenoid is good by jumping the two big posts and pushing the accelerator.

Cleaned and verified (the best I could) both the F/R and wiper switches.

Still no luck. Really strange, while working on this last night, I was able to get it to go in drive/forward 3 times in a row, then not again.

Here's a little more detail on what's happening:
1 Key on.
2 Moved to F (and R, buzzer works on R)
3 Slowly pushed accelerator pedal.
4 With cover off the wiper switch, I can see the micro-switch in there click when the wiper arm reaches the second copper square. The wiper arm starts at the farthest right spot and moves to the farthest left spot when the accelerator is fully pushed (seems to be adjusted right)?
5 The solenoid clicks right about the time the microswitch in the wiper arm does.
6 NOTHING HAPPENS! OR if you very slowly push the pedal (over and over) it may just start to go, and will run until you stop. Then same problem again.

I don't know what to do next? I really appreciate any advice you can give? Any idea what the problem is? How to troubleshoot further?

Thank you!

Replace the master solenoid. It's the one closest to the driver's side. It's the only solenoid that will kill operation in every speed. The others will only kill their designated speed when they fail.

I think he said single solenoid cart?
Still it could be resistor coil or controller cart in 1992, right?
It would sure help if we could at least identify which drive system the person is asking about?
It is hard to do this without a test meter, there may be an intermittent micro switch on the F&R (or in the V-glide, again which drive system?) .... We need more concrete information before we can help.

you guys are right I missed that part.

Change of story here..

If the clicking you're hearing every time you push the pedal is indeed the solenoid and not a micro switch I'd say the micro switches work for sure. If they didn't, the solenoid wouldn't click every time. I'm leaning towards the possibility of a bad solenoid. Just because they click every time doesn't mean they work every time. I'd replace it. As for the drive system. It's a 92, it shouldn't have a controller. The controller cars were only available in 93-94. It's been converted at some point. Whether it's a factory style configuration it's hard to say, but regardless, the solenoid theory stays the same. Try laying a hammer across the two large posts of the solenoid. This basically bypasses the solenoid. See if it'll run everytime you give it throttle while the hammer is there. Be very careful not to touch either of the small posts with the hammer as this will cause a direct short if you're not careful and will create an arc. If it performs like it should, replace the solenoid.
