Default No Reverse

I have a 1999 club car ds powerdrive plus that I have completely rebuilt. This model used to come with 2 solenoids and when I upgraded to the alltrax 500 amp controller, the regen solenoid was removed. So it has more of an IQ setup now. My question is, I was trying to bypass the OBC for the auto charger I bought from ScottyB and once I figured it out (bypassed the ground going to the OBC), now my reverse does not work. I have forward, just no reverse. Before I did this procedure, everything ran just fine, the only issue was charging. Now that the charging issue is solved, the reverse issue has crept up. Any ideas on what could have happened? Everything on this cart is new...switches, v-glide, motor, controller...down to every last bolt.

Does the solenoid activate in reverse?

Nope. It does in forward, just not in reverse. Almost seems like my rocker switch is bad, but its brand new.

And the backup buzzer use to sound when put in reverse, and it no longer does either?

Any ideas on why I could've lost reverse?

I figured it out...I traced down the re-wiring that I did and found that I had 2 wires on my switch reveresed. I feel like an idiot now...oh well, got it fixed.

Thanks for letting us know. I'm glad it was something simple.
