Well some good news if I understand correctly, when you press the go pedal the voltage on the two smaller terminals on the motor are basically none or 1.1. This doesn't change? Test the MCOR instructions in the stickies.

Steve....I think the lights were added on and not a very good job..They have the negative and positive going to the batteries....Problem with that being a ground is there is no continuity between block and frame.

Im about convinced it is/was a conjunction box..

Thanks

. . there should never be continuity between a ground block and the frame on these carts . . . even factory common grounding block is isolated from frame . . it provides a convenient ground point for their light kits so there are not too many connections at battery/controller negative . . .

My 2003 DS IQ has that block. I forget were the wires go to, but it is original. I connected the neg for the relay I am using to power my power supply to that block. There were other wires I just don't remember we're they went.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

OK my friends....A super nice guy sent me a service manual on this DS cart...Part the way through I discovered the solenoid was bad...Got the new one in today, put it on and now my reverse buzzer works, it will move in reverse fine, but will not go in forward. I do feel a little attempt to move in forward but after just a few seconds the solenoid drops out...I checked out the F/R rocker switch...Orange or middle wire has 49.8. put in forward (blue wire} 49.8 volts and reverse {brown wire} 49.8 volts...

Anyone have any ideas where to check before I start testing all over...maybe a simple fix....

thanks

BTY..continuity is good on all wires from F/R switch to where ever they go

I knew sooner or later this would come back. From your comments earlier you said the solenoid was clicking after jumping it. It is time consuming to diagnose a problem and assuming the information you get back is correct.

The comment that conginuity is good on all the wires from the f/r switch means exactly what? How can I know what you did by that comment? You are no where closer to finding the issue as you were a week ago.

Scooterman....It did click when I did the test you told me to do...but still would not go.....I posted that....You then told me to check mcor....

I got hold to a service manual to check the mcor and decided to start at the beginning and check everything..That test showed the solenoid was bad even though I thought it was good.

Now, with the new solenoid on it does go in reverse, but not in forward...

Also, what I meant by checking the continuity on the F/R switch was just that. I checked the continuity on all the wires to and from the F/R switch to where ever they went. To the other end,.

While waiting for responses, I have probably checked the continuity on pretty much all the wires, cleaned just about all the terminals and have replaced a few wires and terminals that just didn't look good trying to find a solution to this problem....

Hope Im not upsetting you, I need your help....

Not upsetting me sorry if that was taken wrong i just need to be clear on what you're doing otherwise I could give bad advice. I'd hate you to burn up a $500 controller or replace a good part.

So you're saying the cart goes in reverse? That can mean a good thing.

do you have a schematic of this cart, can you post it? IS this it/
Electric Club Car wiring diagrams

If your F/R switch is the old style with the wires going to the motor to change direction, swap the Forward cable with the reverse and see if the cart goes forward. Disconnect power to do this.
