94 36 volt club car solenoid?
 
I am side tracked from my steering issue.

About a month ago, my wife took the cart out for a drive. She got to a stop sign and the cart would not move. She moved the F/R swith back and forth, then turned it off and on, cart moved.

Last night, the same thing happened to me, but it worked again. When I did get it home, I smelled something hot.

This morning, the cart was dead. When I turn the key, there is no click. Once the cart is on, I get a loud click when the accelerator pedal is depressed. I assume this is the solenoid making the noise.

Is this most likely the solenoid causing the problem? If so, is it an easy fix on this cart? From what I have read, I believe it is a V-Glide with one solenoid in front of the batteries. I appreciate any help one can give. I called a local shop and they wanted $130 just to pick up the cart and deliver it back home.

Uh Oh, I tried to jump the solenoid, I heard a pop and it no longer clicks. Is this bad?

Solenoids can 'fry' in the open or the closed position. Does sound like you need a new one 8)

I picked up and installed a new solenoid, still won't work. There is no sound even when the key is turned on. Any suggestions?

does the cart have a controller? if so that may have been the pop you heard.......................................8)

Is that in the F/R switch?

I went out and replaced both microswitches (one in the V Glide and one in the F/R switch.) I now have the solenoid popping when the gas is pressed, but the cart still does not move?

Popping or clicking real fast on and off?

It "pops" when the pedal is pressed then makes no noise.
