Default Re: 2002 TXT issue (solenoid?)

The white wire is for the oil pressure switch. Most golf carts don't have the oil light but Ezgo they went ahead and installed the wire in case you wanted to install one.

I cannot say for sure about the coil being bad. Do you know how to test it with a DVOM ?

Do you know how to test the Pulser Coil under the flywheel/fan ?

Ignitors are something that very rare go bad . In my 16 years working at a golf course that had a fleet of these carts I never once replaced an ignitor.

Most of the time if they do go bad then it was mostly caused by the generator over charging or someone maybe connecting jumper cables backward. Also trying to crank a cart with dead battery with a 200 amp battery charger in the start mode. Those are killers on these ezgo's sometimes. I try never to do these things.

I will include this diagram. It's already on this site but here it is anyway.

Take that meter and make sure your wires are good using a DVOM set to continuity test. I have seen more than once where pulser connects have a lose connector on it.

Do I see a homemade connector in your picture ?? going to pulser coil. Check the pulser to see if you get AC volts when spinning over at these homemade connections . Set your DVOM to the AC scale . You connect one lead to black wire and other to red and white going to pulser under flywheel/fan. See what your readings are and post back results.

Thank you so much for help with troubleshooting!

We are back up and running! So it ended up being a dirty connection in the plastic plug that comes off of the igniter. Nothing a little electrical cleaner couldn't fix :) I was able to figure this out utilizing the continuity tester tracking the wires to the pulse coil.

Not so funny story - I got everything put back together, while picking up the tools... i dropped a wrench on top of the solenoid and it landed on the metal bracket that holds the solenoid and the positive terminal battery cable that attaches to the solenoid. HOLY SPARKS!!

Again, I truly appreciate you taking the time and helping!

Cheers!

That reminds me of the time I installed one of the cheap amazon solenoids... Worked fine. Took the cart and parked it in my shop and shut off the fans/lights. I heard a sizzling sound coming from the cart in the silence... lifted the seat and saw the base plate of the solenoid glowing. The contact inside the solenoid had shorted to the metal mounting plate on the bottom of the solenoid, which was mounted to the metal frame. IT had basically welded itself to the frame where it was mounted!

Luckily I got the battery terminal disconnected and removed that POS. I'm grateful I caught it when I did before the cart burned itself to the ground or the battery exploded - neither of which would have been pretty. Needless to say, I'll never buy a cheap solenoid again!

Great news
Glad I was able to pass along what I have learned in the past. I am just glad I still remember because father time is not on my side
I have done things like you did in the past on dropping something. More than I like to tell about but I have been doing this type work since the 1960's
