Default Help on a 1993 EZ Go Freedom for a OLD Butter Bar

My son and I bought a 1993 EZ Go Freedom Golf cart upon my return from Baghdad Iraq. We cleaned it up and I replaced all the batterys and most of the cables. I replaced the solenoid. When doing so I had the Resistor touch the Diode on the solenoid. Well it blew the resistor up faster than a insurgent would fire a rocket into Camp Victory. I went to a guy who repairs them and he told me that it doesn't need those to run. I put a new solenoid on it without the Resistor and Diode and it does not work. Before this process of replace the solenoid we had the cart running for about two days. I was getting a 4-5 second delay when I stepped on the gas pedal. I would mash it and it would take a little while before it would take off. Does anyone out there have any ideas? I am handy but I don't know the first thing about these things and have educated myself along the way. I am frustrated because I had it working and was told by a friend that the solenoid was going bad so I replaced it and now it doesn't work. It worked just fine before I replaced I guess I should have left well enough alone. THANKS

Welcome to BGW!

The resistor is not absolutely needed. Did you use a golf cart solenoid or an automotive type....automotive will not work. First thing I would do it check all your connections and make sure everything is right,, its real easy to get something off. Grab a diagram and make sure everything is good.

These should get you pretty close. And here is a Service Manual in PDF format that should help you. Specifically page 63 in the PDF. Its 31 megs so if your on dialup...well you know.

If these diagrams don't help you there are more around someone can post. The diagram in the service manual is better.

I checked all connections they seem to be tight and good. I got a volt meter and measured everything. The system checks out at 36 volts. When I go from one side of the solenoid to the other I only get 2 volts is that right? Still won't move.

Does the solenoid click at all?

solenoid sticks. found out it was the forward reverse switch and another switch I think it was the accellarator switch. Going to replace them tomorrow and see what happens.

I hope solenoid clicks, not sticks. That could be dangerous.

It clicks. Sorry about that but I have been working Flood duty here in Iowa and must have been tired when I read it. I ended up replace a switch on the F and R Switch and I also replace a switch up by the throttle control arm. Everything seems to work now. Thanks to everyone for helping out. I will post when the next problem arises.
