Smile Club Car DS suddenly stopped working! Help

Took the cart for a 30min stroll through the hood last night everything was normal. Pulled into the drive way and sat and talked to a neighbor for a while. When I went to pull the cart into the garage nothing. So here are the symptoms:

Headlights turn on/ off just fine, as the batteries are far from dead.

Tthe reverse buzzer does not sound when I place the rocker switch to reverse.

When in forward, if I press the gas it clicks but It comes from a black box in the front of the cart. Not the solenoid.

If I connect the charger, the charger clicks but doesn't start.

I checked the batteries and connections and they look good.

All wiring conections seemed solid.

The fuses are in tact.

The only issue I saw was that one pole of the solenoid transistor looks charred, and the plastic casing around it is melted.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Mine occasionally does this. Seems to be related to key switch. I turn key on and off about 5 times and bang it works. I am not sure what's causing it......?

The model and voltage help a lot, but determining a year is easy. Locate your serial number tag, it should be under the dash and at the top of the floor mat area. Post it and I (or someone who beats me to the draw, I respond a little slow) will show you how to decode it.

Could be an OBC issue, since you said it won't charge either. Had it charged correctly up until this point?

Checked all the microswitches? Mine had one that was going bad a few months ago and did a similiar thing. Sometimes it would run fine and sometimes it wouldn't work. Replaced the 5 dollar microswitch and all is well.
