Post 1997 ezgo txt electric cart quit running need help

my kids were running the cart and it just quit.
the battery cables were pretty bad so i
got some new ones and started replacing them
and every time i took an old cable off it sparked.
and when i put a new one on it sparked.
if i put it in tow mode i get no sparks.
any help would be great!
trouble shooting guide etc.

You likely have a DCS electrical system on your 97.

You should always put Run/Tow in Tow mode before performing maintenance.

Hope you didn't do any other damage....controller, etc.

Yepper........ and any time when working on the electrical system, disconnect the Positive+ and Negative- Main cables too to save the controler.

Welcome to the Forum.......... Ask questions and Show photos of your cart.

replaced the controller with a used one that someone gave me.
and no kids drive the cart without me on it
also when i took the controller out and shook
it, it sounded like a box of rice krispys
