Default Yamaha gas cart won't shut off

I have a gas Yamaha that won't shut off.?? Switch under the floor panel is fine. Cannot figure out why the engine wont' quit, I have to unplug a coil wire to stop the engine.
Any suggestions on what to look for????

Disconnect the positive at battery and check to see if the solenoid is
locked up.
All so what is it?
Like that grumpy parts man MAKE MODEL YEAR?

Thanks for the info, will disconnect battery and see if solenoid is stuck. Will get back to you about MAKE MODEL YEAR if problem continues.
Thanks

Don't think it is the solenoid sticking, If you pulled the coil wire to kill it a stuck solenoid would continue to turn it over.
VR backfeeding the solenoid maybe.
Next time don't pull plug wire, remove either of the small wires feeding the solenoid and see what happens.

g-16, g-22 there is a 2 wire plug in front on the motor near the front swing arm mount. Make sure both sides are connected. Next check ground wire coming from that plug to fan side of motor.

Pull the wires on the voltage regulator. If it runs correctly this way, the vr is bad.

Bad vr will feed the relay and the cart will not shutoff.

The guys have taken the engine in and out of this thing trying to fix it, so I'm not sure where all the wires should be going. Would it help to know the year model and make for a wiring diagram? after all the above has been looked at of course
