Fleet or DCS?
Did reverse work before you changed solenoid?
Get any sparks when you changed solenoid?

Cool Re: ez go electric cart reverse not working

Thanks for quick response. Prior to any problems, both forward and reverse worked fine, then changed solenoid after disconnecting battery and forward worked great, didn't check reverse until hour or so later,no response; opened up thebox that actuates reverse or forward and noticed some fairly bad corrosion on connector that contacts engage when reverse is selected, I wiggled the connector while in reverse and it did engage. I replaced the lug and cleaned the wire,coated it with dielectric grease and now neither forward or reverse works. I'm going to jackstand it and try to bypass and go to motor. do you see problem with that or any other advise. I did notice that the assembly, particularly the reverse is a little sloppy and am not sure the contacts are working as well as they should, maybe jumping those would give me some more clues and would be simpler.
