Default 2007 EZ-GO will not move

I have a 2007 EZ-GO. It had a problem intermittently at first with it not moving, now it's all the time. What happens is when you turn the key on, the battery gauge comes on and is at full charge tell me the batteries are charged and okay. Then when you push the gas pedal in either forward or reverse nothing happens. It makes a subtle click, which I assume was the micro-switch.

I've been reading about problems with the solenoid and the speed controller(?) and I can't really relate to well with other peoples' problems because it seems like their carts will move SOMETIMES and other times there's nothing. Mine has nothing all the time.

What should I start testing and how should I test it?

Any advice would be great!

Thanks!

I would open the environmental cover, and also open the seat, and then try to start out and MAKE SURE the solenoid is or isn't making a noise. I am sure others who know more about electrical theory will chime in soon! And welcome to BGW!!!!!!

Use the flow chart below to determine the drive system for your cart....

There is a click sound but it sounds like it's coming more from the pedal area of the cart?

It could be my mind tricking me but that's what it sounds like. To me, it doesn't sound like the solenoid is making any noise.

Another area of interest was there is no reverse "beeeeeep" when you put the cart in reverse. Does this mean anything?

I would say you may have no power to the keyswitch....Check the source which may be a fused connection at the main battery pack +.

Is the small wire present (Not the 10g charge wire but another smaller one)

Well with the key off there are no lights, then one click the battery gauge lights up and then with two clicks the headlights come on. Would all this happen if the key switch didn't have power?

I will check the fuse (which I'm assuming is the big one that is hooked onto the battery).

What small wire are you talking about? I'm not sure I follow...

The power source for the keyswitch, and all the other switches (except accessories such as headlights) is the controller.

No reverse beeper? That sounds like the small red wire from the solenoid's battery side large terminal to J1 Pin-5 is bad. That is one of the two voltage sources that powers the controller's control circuitry.

Attached is a schematic of a PDS drive system with the solenoid activation circuit highlighted.
All the wires highlighted in RED should have full battery pack voltage on them to get the solenoid to click.

Johnnie this diagram is pre 2005. After that time the Reed switch was eliminated. I'll have to dig out another diagram for the archives

Same diagram is in Service manual 28646-G01 revised Oct-2006.

Except for being a fuse instead of a Reed switch, the wire routing is the same in my 2008 PDS.

However, if you have a diagram that accurately shows a post 2005 PDS, I'd love of add it to my stash.
