Default Golf cart won't start when hot

Hi all, I have been here a while just trying to read and learn.
I have a ParCar 2 stroke golf cart that I use occasionally.
It will always start when cold outside, but once I take it for a drive to get it warm, it will not start.

It is some kind of electrical problem, not a gas/jet issue.

I am not sure what year mine is, but mine spins backwards in reverse.

I have been troubleshooting this for a while now, and am hoping the experts here can help.


When it is hot, I check the voltage at the output side of the relay (into starter/generator) and there is nothing. But there is voltage on the trigger side of the relay (wire off gas pedal).
So that tells me the relay is bad, well I put in a different relay (off a Ford) and same problem, starts when cold, drive it around the block and it won't start again.

I have now bypassed the gas pedal switch temporarily and went from the battery to the solinoid little terminal which should start the generator spinning instantly. Well it works when cold, but once again when it is hot, then it doesn't do anything.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Rob

If the engine turns over in forward and reverse but will not fire it is probably the coil.
