do you have it hooked up?...easiest way is just jump the 2 large terminals and turn key on put in gear hit pedal see if it activates if it does its bad......you can test with a meter it still needs to be hooked up......pos probe of meter on one small post where power comes in and neg probe on the other than turn key on put in gear and hit pedal you should get battery voltage ( 36 volts ) if solenoid does not energize its bad....if you don,t read voltage need to find out why ( bad microswitch ?) ( bad or broken wire ) ..................................

I tested the solenoid and it was around 36.1-36.6, that isnt the problem i guess maybe it is the power leaving it but i would like to check the moter to see if its good

So you have 36.6 volts leaving the solenoid or just to it?
