Default 1997 txt controller problem

When I press the accelerator, the solenoid makes contact but the cart does not move. I checked the foward/reverse switch connections and contacts and all seems normal.I believe the controller may be bad but I don't know how to check it. If someone knows how to determine if the controller is bad I would appreciate your help. I have a meter. The controller has a B+,B-,M-,and A2 terminal. It also has 4 wires from the ITS, that plug into terminals 1,2,3 and an orange wire that plugs into a terminal next to the B+ lug.Thanks Dick K.

That means you have a Series/Fleet system. Raise the rear axle on stands, and jump the large terminals of the solenoid with a 6g wire. Ease into the gas and see if the wheels turn. You have just bypassed the solenoid and if the cart works, the solenoid has failed.

ps: Don't let that motor spin-up to speed without a load on it.

I checked the solenoid and it is working fine,thanks. I was wondering if you knew of any voltage or resistance measurements to check out the controller.

Solenoids can click and ohm-out fine, but not engage correctly. Jump it as described to rule it out. I have no test procedure for controllers. Common test is to replace it with a known good unit. Hard to do in your situation however.
