Default Shorted my EZGO and now it wonít move

I put in a battery meter and it stopped working. Was going to check it. Voltage going to it and the two wires shorted. Didnít think anything about it I put it all back together and was gonna pull it in the garage and go on eBay and buy another. It wouldnít move. I donít know much about these guys. I believe itís been rebuilt from the bottom up. Serial number on the frame and none on the body. Iím not sure as I havenít seen a wiring diagram on for this cart. I will show it seems they would be a fuse somewhere albeit an in line fuse or car fuse or something. The only fuse Iíve seen is a car fuse inline for the headlights that looks wired aftermarket. It has one resistor on the solenoid (I think itís the solenoid) and no diode. Itís a 2005 ezgo txt. Any thoughts or knowledge would be appreciated. I have no experience in the wiring of carts. But I am an electrician. It canít be hard to figure. I I knew how it worked. Or had the schematic. And I hope I didnít fry the controller... thanks guys

Check for pack voltage at the red wire coming from the charger port and pack negative. If none, probably cooked the reed switch in the charger port. Take it apart and bypass it.

Thanks kgsc. Looks like they have already bypassed the reed switch.

If I was you this is how I would try to find the problem. Connect the common lead of your meter to bat neg. Now get access to the connections on the key sw. With the key turned on you should measure your pack voltage on both sides of the sw. If not work backwards to find the open. My reasoning is that if there is a fuse its going to be close to the PS and before the sw.

Walter, no power. Would they be an in line fuse in the corrugated harness?

And would a short like this kill the PMC controller?

Both wires going back to the controller read continuity. Iím thinking I fried my controller. Any more suggestions guys?
