Default Oh, sorry... crossthreading is usually really bad.

I guess I'm just really frustrated with all these challenging issues.

I'd love to test the motor but one of the bolts (the one with the purple wire) won't come off. When we originally discovered that this was the wire that was disconnected, we tried to remove the bolt using PB Blaster but it wouldn't budge. We managed to reconnect the wire to the terminal end and did indeed get a good reading, but this action also prompted the new solenoid to stop clicking.

Disconnecting the purple wire from the other end (at F&R ) will serve the same purpose.

What batteries do you have? 36v or 48v system? It sounds like it is a 36v cart with 48v worth of batteries in it. By the way, are you hearing the Microswitch in the V-Glide click? Or is there no clicking at all?

Three Holes in each battery compartment.

Yes, we can hear the m/s in the vglide click. We just put in a new one.

Default 36 v....

We got it at a local golf cart shop and the tech gave it to us. I even saw the book where he cross-referenced our cart's serial number, so I think it's the right one. As it turns out, the old one we took out seems to check out fine as well.

Is it just me? Looks like one of the batteries is NOT connected in the middle. The cable appears to go under the cap and not come out?

You're correct. I'd connect the other end of that cable to the correct battery and then try running the cart again

That cable should go to the battery post with the green wire from the F-R switch and the other smaller red wire on it

Default Whoa!!! If it was a snake, I'd be dead!!!!!

That was the issue!! That's exactly why I kept telling my husband that I wanted to post a picture and get fresh eyes on the cart. Simply amazing!!

So... in case anyone goes to read this really long thread... the advice is to go through all the tests suggested here (especially the solenoid) and when checking connections and wires, make sure to look at the cart from ALL angles. Look from the left side, the right side, underneath-- hang your head upside down if needed. We didn't see the original problem of the dangling purple wire because the loose end was hanging just on the underside of the cart.

And... a picture and some really smart and kind golf cart folks can make a wonderful day.
