Thanks for the reply. I need all the help I can get. Unfortunately, the cart IS working this morning. I am getting 37 volts across the solenoid with the key on and the go pedal pressed slightly.

While I am waiting for it to stop working I am going to familiarize myself with the troubleshooting steps in the manual, and take some voltage readings.

I almost hope it is the solenoid because it looks easy to replace. I will try your suggestion also.

Thanks again.
