Check ground connections or if ground is adequate. Jump the solenoid and if it starts, then its a solenoid problem. Check key switch if there is continuity. And check for busted/blown fuse.

To jump the soleniod, get a 6 gauge wire/cable and touch the two big poles .

Had same problem with my workhorse after checking everything it turned out to be a 4 dollar microswitch located by the accelerator under the plate.

Glad to be of assistance. I have a 96 EZGO workhorse. I also have a couple of Yamaha G2s and a G1. Going by some experience.
