If it has coils, its not a series, but rather a resistor cart...

So I think you have resistor coils right?
If so, is there a solenoid beneath each one, or do you just have one master solenoid?

Ok, these systems are darn near bullet proof, I would say the solenoid is more than likely the problem...

Bingo! I checked continuity across the solenoid and it was closed. I then tapped on it and it must have then closed because when I hooked the battery up, no sparks! I then hooked the charger up and it worked as well!

So, this may be a dumb question, but would you go ahead and replace the solenoid or is this a once in a million occurrence?

By the way, thanks again for the assistance!

I would say go ahead and replace it, especially since it very well could be the original and it has been clicking for 22 years everytime someone puts their foot on the gas...
