I read on another post about putting a paper clip in the wiring harness side of the two hole connector to the MCOR to test. Since I have pulled the end off mine, can I just join the blue wire and the green wire temporarily to see if the cart will run and therefore tell me if I need to buy the MCOR or try to fix the switch inside?

Yes, You can just connect the Green and the Blue wire together to by-pass that switch.

You can also run like that until You get the MCOR replaced, just make sure you turn the Key switch OFF when parked.

Ok. I jumped the two wires and it worked. Tell me again what this bypasses?

There is series of safety "interlocks" that must be closed/engaged before the controller will activate the solenoid.
Tow/Run on Run.
Key Switch ON.
FNR on Forward or Reverse.
Pedal microswitch closed.
MCOR Throttle signal more than 5% (not exactly sure on the minimum percentage).
With the pedal switch by-passed and all of the other interlocks ON, there is a small possibility of a signal fluctuation in the MCOR resistance track could cause the cart to move by itself.

It is very unlikely to cause it to move when you turn the key ON since too much pedal signal when the key is turned ON would trigger a HPD fault and the cart would not move.

So you should replace the MCOR, but that is how that switch plays in the entire safety system.

Edit:
I am obviously not paying much attention this morning, You have a Series cart not a Sepex.
In this case the HPD fault would not protect you from a throttle signal issue accidentally causing movement at Key ON.
Make sure the key is always OFF when you are stopped and your foot is not on the brake if you use the cart with the by-pass in place.

Ok. Thanks Sergio and everyone. This has been a very helpful group and I will replace the MCOR with the updated kit. Thanks!
