But wait... I'm very sure There was no G16e in 1999. Is your system 36v or 48v? The F&R is a super common failure point on G16E, but, so was the controller. (Don't trust stickers on the easily changed plastic body, only trust what parts you see, and the serial number , SN wasn't on the plastic body). G16E SN was on a aluminum tag riveted to the frame, it should be on the parts under the seat, up front. On the driver's side if I recall.


Oops, there was still a G16e available in 1999........ My mistake! I thought after 1998, G19e was the new way....

It is definitely a 1999 g16 e Yamaha electric golf cart I pulled out the controller today it looks brand new I put the cables to it after cleaning the terminals and the golf cart red on jack stands for a few minutes then I remounted the controller put all the cables back on in their original place connected to three wires green white and yellow reconnected the battery cable to the solenoid and I just got a clicking noise the tires would not rotate I am wondering if it could possibly be the brushes in the DC motor that's the only thing I haven't pulled or changed any other suggestions. What is the F & R?

Any more suggestions I double-checked the motor it works I put in new brushes make sure all the cables were clean all the way to the floor and reverse switch assembly I think I would need to know what cables go to the solenoid is clicking and working and sometimes the wheels spin I have one new battery the other ones are a little bit older but they all hold 6 volts or better need to figure out what the heck the problem is maybe it's the controller it looks brand new I cleaned off all the terminals

So are you saying the cart runs if you hold the controller in your hand, but when the controller is mounted to the frame it does not run?

Perhaps your motor is shorted to the case, and thus energizing the frame when you press the pedal?

Just a shot in the dark, I don't know why else the cart would only run when the controller is not mounted...

I don't know where you read that I never said that if I hold the controller it runs and when I put it back in place it doesn't run. But I did have a friend come over who knows alot about golf carts and he said that it's the batteries because I bought one brand new one the other batteries are 2013 they are over 5 years old and so one new battery in 50 old ones cause the car not to charge properly especially under a heavy load it goes down to 30 volts when I'm just driving it down the driveway so I think I need to buy new batteries thanks for your help
