Default Gas EZGO Electrical problem

I'm getting 12volts to all studs on start/gen except DF and nothing turns. Also not sure what model i have, so I'm not sure which wiring diagram to use. The manufacturing code is J1687. Is 87 the year?

Looks like an 87 to me. The emblem should be in line with the steering column.

Use this manual.

Sweet! Thanks. Question? I have two micro switches on the F/R switch. Is one for forward and the other reverse? Also is the limit switch the one activated by the gas pedal? Thanks

One of them is connected to the backup buzzer, and nothing else. I hate noise, so I disconnected mine.

The other one is connected in series with the pedal switch, and the key switch. All 3 of them have to make contact for anything to work. I don't know what the official names are without looking it up.

If you have 12 volts everywhere the chances are your ground is missing enabling everything to float. There should be a large braid from the negative battery post to the chassis. From that chassis point there should be a ground to the F/R switch and a ground to the engine block. Remove the chassis ground and clean the stud and the chassis to bare metal. Clean the cable lugs and make sure you have a good ground to the engine.

If that does not fix it we can move on.

If you go to the sub forum EZGO tech, scroll about half way down you will find the circuit diagram for the 89. I have checked and the wiring matches the colors you quote. SO there lies your answer.
I would recommend that you check the grounds as I mentioned as many problems are caused by bad grounding and it is an easy fix.

This is my 87. The muffler stands up on the driver's side.

Ok i made sure i had a good ground. Ground the frame and tested with power probe. Getting 12v to A1 and F1 and F2. I have no volts on DF. Is this correct. I feel as if the starter gen is bad. Thanks for the help i feel I'm soo close to getting it to run.
