So let me try to help clear up how the system works. There are five micro switches in the silver box at the end of the gas peddle linkage under the drivers seat. There are five solenoids. One solenoid is the master solenoid in the other four are speeds. The master solenoid is the one farthest to the driver's side of the cart.

Each of the solenoids is activated by a microswitch in the silver box. The five micro switches are activated sequentially when the gas pedal is pressed. So that when the gas pedal is pressed initially the master solenoid is activated. The master solenoid then feeds power to each of the speed solenoids. Now the speed solenoids are ready to be activated. They must be activated in the proper order to get the proper speeds. There speeds range from lowest on the driver's side to highest on the passenger side.

Put the cart up on blocks. Remove the seat. Using your hand to push the gas pedal down listen carefully to hear both the micro switches and the solenoid's click as they are activated.
All solenoids are working like they are supposed to do. I have no idea why this cart is running wide open on the main solenoid. Could the f&r have anything to do with this??????

This sounds like a simple problem where the last (highest speed) solenoid is wired to the first micro switch but we need to verify what you have.

If you donít have a volt/ohm meter, youíll need to get one. Itís gonna get plenty of use with an electric cart. Cheap one will do, donít need a Fluke.

Disconnect both cables from the end of the resistor bank and from the master solenoid. Insulate by wrapping a rag or towel around each, bind with tape. Remove the buss bar across the solenoids. Check for continuity across EACH AND EVERY solenoid with key off, forward/reverse lever centered and without pressing the go pedal.

Press down on go pedal and check ALL solenoids again.

Repeat with lever in forward, first without pressing on the go pedal and then with pressing on the go pedal. Check again each time you hear a solenoid energize. Check both with key on and key off.

Repeat with lever in reverse.

I think before you get to the end of the tests, youíll find the problem.
