Default 2006 ezgo not moving

This is a 2006 ezgo TXT PDS. I was changing my tail lights when one wire hit the motor terminal. I thought I could do it without turning off the run/tow switch. Never forget to turn off that switch. I have replaced the controller (which was bad blown transistors). I've checked the Solenoid its OK. I checked the on/off switch its ok. I checked the F/R switch it ok. I checked all wires they are ok. I checked the motor by testing for continuity between F1 & F2 and A1 & A2 Thats ok. There was no continuity between A1 & F1. I applied 36v + to A1 and Negative to F1 with A2 and F2 jumped The motor ran in reverse I tried reversing the wires to see if it would run in forward but it ran in reverse even with the wires switched. I've checked the controller by checking the voltage from B+ to A1 while pressing the foot pedal. The voltage started at 32 volts when foot pedal switch engaged it went to 24v then as I pushed it down it went back up to about 30 volts. The batteries have 38.6 volts. Any help will sure be appreciated.

Sounds like you are jumping all over the place instead of troubleshooting in a logical progression.

As you have just learned, always put Run/Tow switch in Tow before doing any anything to the cart other than driving it or charging it.

With Key ON and either F or R selected, does solenoid click when pedal is pushed?

-------
BTW: To reverse motor direction, only swap the cables on the A or on the F terminals, not both.

Ok thanks but how do I put it into diagnostic mode?
I need more information on how to reverse motor direction. I jumped A2 and F2 and applied positive voltage to A1 and negative to F1. Do I jump A1 and F1 and apply positive voltage to A2 and negative to F2.
I also checking the inductive throttle sensor do you know what the OHM value should be on the sensor.

1. Text at bottom of attached label tells you how.

2. Basically, you reverse the direction of current flow though either the Armature windings or the Field windings, but not both or it will continue to spin in same direction.

Also, you have a Sepex (SEParately EXcited) motor, and the field windings are not designed to handle anywhere near the amount of current that will flow through the armature when connected directly to a battery pack.

Field current is only about 10% (or less) of armature current, so a sepex motor might be destroyed trying to test it like a series wound motor is tested.

Basically, if you got it to spin, it was good. If you still have continuity through the field windings, it may still be good.

3. IIRC it is around 300 Ohms, but that isn't how to check it.

Download the Owner, the Service and the Parts manuals form this thread in the stickies: Basic Ezgo electric golf cart wiring and manuals

There is procedure for checking/adjusting the ITS. And tons of other good info.

JohnnieB, Thanks for your help. I found out my beeper is not working. I hooked voltage up to the red and the green wires and the beeper worked. I also tested the motor and it works so my conclusion is I have a bad controller which I just bought (rebuilt).
