Default Marathon no go

I've had no problems until now, Was using my 93 ezgo to pull a few trucks around the yard and I believe I've burnt up something, Kinda smelled like something was burning. What would be the first thing to check? the solenoid?

The F&R switch? Take a clear pic of the 4 F&R connections and cable ends and post that here.

Thanks for the reply ScottyB, Im trying to figure out how to add pics to the post, not sure if i can do it from my phone, so Ill have to get them to the computer and add them. Is there a way to bypass the FR switch to check it?

Solenoid does looked burnt. Simple check, just jump the big terminals of the solenoid, see if it runs..
