Default Melex golf cart 36v solenoid not clicking dont believe I have voltage I need

I have a melex 36 volt cart with brand new batteries and a brand new solenoid. I get power to solenoid and key switch is functioning properly but when I step on gas pedal I donít get voltage to the 2 big lugs on solenoid. Solenoid doesnít click or anything. I have batteries wires correctly and all ends were cleaned. Anyone run into this problem before ? Where should I start ? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Check for blown micro switches.

Which drive system is this? Resistor coil or solid state speed control?
The solenoid should have 36v between the 2 small posts when you press the gas. If you got the diode installed backwards when changing the solenoid you may have blown a micro switch. Start doing some switch testing

I did not have 36 volt between the two small posts when pressing accelerator pedal that was before I even broke the diode. Will this thing move without the diode?
