Default 98 ezgo electric won't move

I have an electric 1998 model, it just stopped and won't move. The switched all seem to check out ok, the backup buzzer won't beep as before. I dont know if there is a fuse or breaker on it somewhere?
Any suggestions?

Mike

I had the exact same problem this last weekend. Turned out to be a break in one of the "new" 4g battery cables. You could not tell by looking at the cable that it had separated from the connector terminal due to the shrink wrap over the crimp..., but push/pull on the cable let you know something was not firmly connected.

Check your cables/connections.

I checked all connections and found one that was was not completely broken but i replaced it anyway. It did not help the problem.
the relay or selinoid does not kick in or click.

Grab them and tug on them. If the treminals move at the bolts, tighten them, if they pull apart, repair them.

Default Re: 98 ezgo electric won't move

we were driving around the park this weekend, pulled up in the driveway to get something to drink..., and the cart would not move. My cables all looked and acted firmly connected..., until a friend firmly pulled on the bad one. If you cannot see the terminal crimp, pull really hard on them all, none of them should pull free from the terminal. If the cart was running and simply stopped, with no smoke or noise included, I'm suspecting you have a bad connection someplace, likely on one of the batteries.

Do you have and know how to use a volt/ohm meter? There should be one black and one white wire coming from your charge connector. These two connections represent the entire 36v series configuration. Check there with a volt meter for 36 volts, and monitor the voltage while you wiggle the battery wire interconnect cables.

If you have a constant 36V, get the specs on your solenoid and check the terminals there for proper voltage readings.

All that I just said..., I learned from the guys at this site, and so far it has been very, very helpful.

Cool Re: 98 ezgo electric won't move

Oh, I forgot to mention..., my reverse pizo worked, the lights and radio worked as well, so I knew I had volts, but after a little wiggling of the wires the pizo (reverse buzzer) stopped working. This led us back to the battery connections.
