Default 2002 Club Car DS just stopped after installing 2 gauge wires

Ok, newbie here with a question. I replaced my batteries and everything was fine with the old cables. Then I replaced my cables with 2 gauge cables because the old ones looked pretty bad. The cart ran fine for maybe 15 minutes and just stopped. After reading on here, I realized I had to have something through the obc. So, I used a 5/16 carriage bolt, carefully following diagram I found posted here. Still no go. Reset obc per instructions on here. Still no go. Checked water. All good. Charging battery pack now for the first time. Charger needle went to the right and is humming like its supposed to. Each battery showed about 8.15 volts before charging. Forgot to mention it is a 48 volt with 6 8 volt batteries. Sorry for the long post, but is there something else I need to check as to why it won't move?

check all your wires and cables ... give them a tug and a wiggle

Is there anything to spray on electrical connections to clean off dirt and grime without messing up anything?

I haven't found any loose wires, but it is still charging after 3 hours and still at 10 amps on the charger. I assume that is ok. Up to about 54 volts on the pack.

Ok. According to Sergio ' s diagnostic procedure, either the micro switch in the FNR is the problem or the accelerator pedal. I know where the FNR micros are. Is the accelerator switch in the box on the frame rail?

Or are you saying one of the micros is the pedal switch?

Yes there is a micro switch inside the Vglide, the pie shaped box referred to as a Multi-Step potentiometer.

Power comes in from the key switch on the Blue wire and the switch completes the connection to the Green/White wire that goes to the FNR micro switch.

The FNR micro switch completes the signal from the Green/White wire to the White/Black wire that goes to the Solenoid to provide the positive activation side of the circuit.

Check the FNR micro switch first since it is the easier one to access.
