Default Electric EZ Go just quit, batteries are good

i have an electric EZ-GO that just quit. Don't know the year, i bought it used but its less than 10 years old for sure. I re-charged the batteries and they are fine, about 41V across all 6. when you press the pedal you can hear the solenoid click, then you feel a vibration like the motor is trying to turn but can't.

See what pack voltage drops to when the cart is shuddering. Post it here, please.

so i assume its a 36 volt system, 6- 6 v batteries. They are fully charged so some are over 6v, hence the 40v total. the pack voltage drops to about 31v when the accel is pushed down. this is when the cart starts to shudder like it wants to go but can't. brakes aren't locked up because i can push the cart easily by hand. sorry but i don't know if its a PDS or DS? the SN is 2479344 which i assume means that it was built in 93, but that doesn't seem to jive with what i have seen online.

according to EZGO here https://shop.ezgo.com/my-vehicle/sel...px?appid=19518 you have a 2007 36V TXT.

About 31 volts when you press the accel down? That sounds like batteries that are shot.... Under LOAD your pack should not drop below 31 volts...

I agree, put the meter on each battery and redo the voltage drop test for each one. One (or more)may drop significantly. (it loses 10v someplace)
If unsure how to analyze the results post test #s for each battery here.
Give a standing voltage and loaded (trying to go) voltage reading for each.
