Default Cart intermittently does not run

My 00 EZGO TXT ran fine but occasionally would not start until I pressed the peddle several times, then it decides to suddenly move again. The solenoid clicks when it does this fit, however, what is more likely the problem?...solenoid going bad or something else...maybe a f/r microswitch? This is a series cart.
Many thanks to all who help!

the solenoid can click but not actually make contact. I would suggest first checking voltage on both sides of the solenoid (especially the controller side.).

Thanks I will check it. Is this going to be tricky to diagnose if the cart decides to start working again? It ran good all day long but then tonight was dead. Tomorrow it will be working fine again when I go testing it.

Ok yesterday while the cart wouldn't start, I jumped the solenoid and that made it work. Put a new solenoid in today. It's been running so far (knock on wood)!
