Default starter spinning, engine will not start

I'll preface this with I'm a bit mechanically challenged, can usually figure things out just takes a while. The engine on our cart will not start, the starter is spinning, engine is getting gas, spark and air but the engine will not start. The kids were riding it around the neighborhood and it just stopped running. The radio was on while the kids were riding it and they mentioned radio interference when the gas pedal was pushed. The radio worked fine while the cart was not on which leads me to believe we may have an electrical issue, but i have no idea on where to begin to troubleshoot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Start checking your wiring. I'd look at the solenoid first to make sure all the wires are connected, if one of those are off you are dead in the water. It used to happen to mine, I had a connection that wasn't tight and it would fall off and kill it.

Thanks for the response. Just inspected solenoid wiring, all wiring looks good, no frays or burnt wires and all connections are secure.

May I ask how do you know it's getting spark? IF it's truly getting gas air and spark ya might pull the plug (to be sure on spark) and check for compression while it's out......

As far as the stereo goes I once had one in mine and it cut out while pressing on the gas pedal, I even wired it directly to the battery. Never did figure out why so I took it out and went to an MP3 player

BTW, What buggy do you have?

Three responses, and not once did anybody ask what kind of engine it is, or what year the cart is.


2 stroke, or 4 stroke? It makes a difference in troubleshooting..
