Default Testing Motor On '96 Electric Club Car Cart???

Can anyone advise me as to the easiest way for me to test the motor on my '96 Club Car Cart? I replaced the solenoid thinking I had a short going to it but that did not solve my problem. The cart was running great but now it seems to run for a short time then totally stop. I've got new batteries (~ 1 year old) and they are full of water and fully charged. When the cart stops running, the batteries are not below 80% charged. Do I need to test my motor? Please advise. Thank you.

You are describing a common problem associated with the controller. You have controller failing.

Thank you, Bonduranth. I was reading more after I posted and the controller was mentioned by another post. I appreciate your confirmation! Hope you have a good weekend!

Just did this to test my motor.

Disconnect all 4 wires on motor.

Jump A1 to S1

Hook batt + to A2

Batt - to S2

I used jumper cables and 2 of my 8v cart batteries to give the motor 16 v so it wouldn't be too powerful.

Mine worked :)

If you let the cart sit for a while does it start running again? If not, what do you have to do to get the cart to move? How long/far is a "short time"

Test each battery and post the voltages.
