Question Wrong Solenoid in my cart? w/ Pics- Please suggest correct solenoid I should be using

Hello, I recently bought an old project cart. I didn’t realize this at the time but is the pictured solenoid a 12volt instead of a 36 volt solenoid? This would explain a lot.

I want to put the correct solenoid in it so I can get everything functioning as it should.

Can someone suggest a part to replace this that will work? Also, are they pretty universal for this type of cart solenoid? (Where I can buy one for a 36volt cart and slap it in)

Thank you in advance!

It’s an 82 resistor cart

Looks like a 12v to me. (Ford maybe?) Also you have at least one wire missing.

I'm not the EZ-GO expert, but can you post a photo of everything around that so we can see what you have?

Exclamation Re: Wrong Solenoid in my cart? w/ Pics- Please suggest correct solenoid I should be u

Yeah the jumper wires are not hooked up at all (to the key and MS on the pedal). I tested continuity and itís showing the solenoid is activated

I got the right wiring diagram and will hook it up correctly once I have the correct parts. Just checking if I had to get a special 36 volt solenoid.

Iíll include a photo, enjoy the laugh

You think this one will work?

Nothing there to laugh about. Yes, you need a 36 volt solenoid. Easily found in here.

Look above for "Site Sponsors." You will find what you need.

We must have posted at the same time, LOL. I know nothing about that seller or the quality of that product. I would use one of the site sponsors.

BTW. That is a fairly old cart judging by the motor orientation (not that it matters.)

But I noticed that red wire going across the battery pack. Look closely at your wiring diagram. That does not look right to me.

You donít want to use those 12v car batteries long term. You need to use 6v deep cycle batteries eventually. But those will do for testing- they just wonít last long.

Good call Luke. I knew there was something else not quite right. Did not notice it.

If he has car batteries, it's possible that it's a robocart (or an old cart I've never seen), and was wired to use a 12 volt solenoid.

Best bet is to assume all wiring is suspect. Do you want to spend the time and money to chase down all wiring and correct it, and pay $600+ for new batteries? Likely that's not all that's wrong.
