The solonoid is Cole Hersee and there is a part attached to it made by Curtis (PMC) not sure what that part is.

The reason I ask is my friend installed 400amp controller with 6g wires and 70amp solenoid and it runs hot like fire. To much resistance with those parts. 1/2 hour running the cart and you can't touch the solenoid or wires, too hot.

i think your battery cables are what started the fire, some of the cable ends were pretty crappy ( no offence meant ) so you need a controller i would get an alltrax 300 amp and since you need more than just a set of battery cables i would switch all cables to 4 gage..........every 6 gage cable in the cart take out and replace with 4 gage...............as for a motor if your using the cart on just flatland you can get away with the 300 amp controller with a high speed motor ...............that the controller and 4 gage cables will get you about 25 mph...........if your rough with the cart and use it on hilly roads also than go a minumum of 400 amp controller that and the high speed motor will hold up..................battery cable and battery maintence is very important without it thats the kind of thing that happens ( fire ) as for the batteries if it didn,t melt the casings at all than you can save them by tapping into that round area and as mentions get those wingnuts off and throw them away...........good luck with it and take your time and do things right.......if you decide on higher amp controller and high speed motor get a heavy duty solenoid and beef up the F&R switch................................

Running a lifted cart with 6ga wires and a "higher performance" controller is just asking for trouble.
For example, lets say thats a dcx 300. now thats not 300 amps peak, it will acutaly put out more than that. An original factory controller; depending on the model will put out 300amps peak.

Still 6ga wires on a lifted cart, with a "stronger than stock" controller will cause issues like this, especialy with connection problems. Do you have the proper fuse on the system that came with that controller?

Your controller could by chance still be good if you can try and power it up. Refer to alltrax bench testing http://www.alltraxinc.com/files/Doc1...am-Diagram.pdf to see if it will still power up

As for the melted battery terminal(s)..., "IF" the battery still tests good under load..., I have seen people drill into a flat portion of the exposed post and connect the wires with a machine screw..., just to get the cart moving agin, or to continue troubleshooting.

This gives you a good/decent enough connection to get you back to the house or into the garage where you can fix the problem correctly. I know of at least one guy who has been driving his cart around for several months with this exact fix.
