I can't think of much more, if the fuse is ok, we may have to start checking motor, controller, solenoid...

Interesting post. I had the EXACT same thing happen to me this weekend on my 99 DS. Washed it and drove it into the garage just fine. Shortly (within two minutes) I went to use the cart again and NOTHING.
Turns out that I got some water on something that the cart didn't care for. Sitting in my 122 deg garage (Phoenix for ya) for an hour dried everything up and now it runs just fine (other than its previous OBC issue). Heres to hoping that you did the same thing and once everything dries you'll be good to go.

Sounds like the controller got wet. Check fuses first then:

You need some plastic, grocery bags will do, some tape, Duck tape would be good and some rice.
1 - Make a pocket or pouch around the controller.
2 - Pour rice into the pouch.
3 Come back in a couple of days.

Yes, or go to a shoe store and round up as many silica packets as you can.
I fixed an iPod this way one time!

Try bypassing the FR switch, maybe that got wet and fried the contacts.

I have a 2007 Precedent. If the F/R switch gets wet, it won't move. The switch is easy to take apart. Either let it dry out or spray it with WD-40 to displace the water. I prefer to let it dry so, WD-40 will attract dirt.

Went to the course last night and the cart works. I think Moonbuggy is right, the F/R most likely got wet and when it dried it was fine. Thanks to all who helped.

Good to hear every time I wash my cart my reverse buzzer sounds until it dries very annoying but just what it does
