download, save, & print this wiring diagram of your cart.

Study it until you can see how the power goes through the F&R switch thru the v-glide thru the coils to the motor. Now use the voltmeter to trace it. We know the positive goes to the f&r. so find the always hot side of the f&r at the bottom. Check to see that nothing else on the F&R is hot. Now switch the lever and see if the power goes first to one side and then the other (forward and reverse)

OK, I checked the voltage on the wires at the bottom, green and Red. The red connects to battery 1 positive terminal, the green to the positive terminal of battery 4. The reading is 19.00.

The reading of the purple and gray that go to the motor register 19 when the lever is in reverse, but nothing when the lever is in forward.

The reading for the white wire going to the V glide and the gray wire going to the motor reads 38 in forward and 0 in reverse.

I assume this clears the F/R switch as the culprit?

Sounds like a properly functioning half speed reverse Club Car F&R
On thru the solenoid and then to the v-glide Jack the cart up on blocks then proceed>>>>
The white wire from the F&R carries power to one side of the solenoid. Is it present on one of the large terminals when in forward and reverse? Now depress the 'gas' peddle. One of the small terminals should carry positive and the other negative. The solenoid should click closed and power should now be present on both large terminals. Trace the white wire to the back side of the V-glide. Power there too? I guess no power this far

P>S:
Here's a nasty little secret about electrical troubleshooting...... Just because it worked one time doesn't guarantee it is going to work all the time. The intermitten short is common and hard to nail down.

Thanks, this may be a dumb question, but if the solenoid was replaced and the new on clicks open and closed, does that eliminate this step and take us right to the V-Glide?

Well lookie there, when I was moving the colored wires coming from the V glid going to the resistor coils I see the white one was fried and broken loose.

As you suggested, the solenoid voltages checked out. When I moved the colored wires to trace the white one from the solenoid, I found the burnt wire.

Should I replace all wires and V glide or just this one wire?

Fix ( shorten with a new end if it will reach) if that works consider a thorough inspection of all cable ends and evaluation of whether or not replacement may be necessary. Old corroded wires offer lots of Resistance ( not good ).
They are a fire hazard (resistance = heat) and they are power robbing.
But hey, Your cart will be running in a muinute.....Congrats. You got lucky, rookie!
