Should the key switch have voltage on one side?

I only checked it for continuity when turned on..

just answered my own question there..it has power on one when off..then on both sides when on.

I am no expert, but...
First, make sure the rear wheels are off the ground when by-passing things...
The positive side of the solenoid coil (blue) is provided by the OBC blue wire. That circuit also powers the red+ of the buzzer, since the buzzer is working, that is probably working.
The negative side of the solenoid coil (blue/white) comes from the controller.
The controller sends the negative side when it gets a + voltage from the microswitch (green/white) in the MCOR.
Just because you hear a click it does not necessarily means the micro switch is working.
The 2 pin connector in the MCOR is the micro switch, it gets its power from the "blue" coming from the key switch.
You can disconnect that plug and test the continuity between the 2 pins in the MCOR. It should show continuity when you press the pedal and hear a click.
You can also use a paper clip and short the 2 pins in the connector itself and the solenoid should activate.

The small blue wire going to the solenoid is a positive wire...I get full voltage when i check it.

But...I also get full voltage when I check the blue and white wire..I thought this was supposed to be the negative side..

I am not familiar with electronics or diodes..could this be my problem?

What happens if a diode goes bad?

If iI check from blue wire to blue and white wire it doesn't read any voltage.

The the blue and white wire is the negative, but the controller is the one that grounds that wire when the pedal is pressed. You are measuring a "dead" wire so you are getting the voltage reading thru the coil, which will be about the same as in the other side of the coil.

Good, keep the voltmeter there, then disconnect the 2 pin connector at the MCOR and put a paper clip on the connector, The voltmeter should read 48 volts. If it does not and all your connectors and wires look good, the problem is likely with the controller.

When trying the paper clip test...I hear a humming noise for a few seconds then it stops...

If I unhook the paper clip then retry it gives the same humming noise then stops after a few seconds.

Their is no voltage reading between the blue and the blue and white wire before or after the humming noise.

I unhooked the blue and white wire...ran a wire from their directly to #6 ground...the solenoid clicked..I pushed accelerator and wheels turned...that was a sigh of relief..atleast something is happening now...lol

The paper clip bypassed the micro switch..Me running the ground wire straight to battery ground bypassed controller and it worked..

Do you think it would be a likely guess that it almost has to be the controller being faulty?

That's good news you getting the motor to run.
Where was the humming sound coming from? Since the solenoid did not activate, was it coming from the controller itself?
Did you try the gas pedal when you heard the humming sound?
