Default Cart won't run..

My cart was running ok, slow but batteries were old . When it was shut down the last time it never could be started again, bought new batteries and still nothing, not even a back-up tone. I am thinking the switch , but not sure. any ideas will be greatly appreciated. It is Marathon cart

Check all battery cables and connections. Give each one a firm tug.
Check voltage at charge receptacle on cart? What is it?
Check individual battery voltages. What are they?
Determine if you have a Marathon resistor or Marathon controller cart and then...
Locate appropriate wiring diagram from Sticky's at top of first page and trace each connection and verify.

If it has a metal cover over some coil looking things between the batteries toward the back it's resistor cart.

Those things you don't want to touch shortly after driving.

Does a Marathon cart have a Reed switch?
