Default 2006 Ezgo pds only reverse

I know itís a common issue and Iíve seen a lot of the posts about it. Thank you to everyone on this site. You guys are awesome.
I changed out the solenoid (I thought that was the likely problem since there was burnt wires on it). It didnít fix the problem. I switched the cables on F1 and F2 and now the cart only goes for 20 yards at a time before it cuts out.
From what Iíve read itís likely either the f&r switch on the dash or the controller. Is there a way I can test the switch without destroying the rivets holding the plate in the dash?

Just drill out the rivets... it’s about time you had a $5-$20 pop riveter anyways... you can get one at any hardware store... lol

Check the voltage the F/R switch is send to the controller at the controller.
Battery pack voltage comes out of controller on J1 Pin-1 to center terminal of F/R switch. In F, the voltage is sent to J1 Pin-3 and in R it is sent top J1 Pin-2.

Attached are diagrams showing voltage paths through a PDS controller and where Pin-1 is on each jack.

-------------
as for running a few yards and stopping, put controller in diagnostic mode and listen for the beeped error codes. The text at the bottom of attached PDS label tells you how to get into diagnostic mode.

----------
If you push the center pin in the two drive rivets that hold the switch panel in place, you can pop them out and reuse them if you can find the pin that was pushed out. Otherwise, sheet-metal screws work.

Push the pins gently and they will fall into the pocket below them if they are plastic. If aluminum they will have to be drilled out. You can also put the cart in tow, unplug the 10 connector and check for continuity between pin 1 and pin 3 for forward and pin 1 and pin 2 for reverse.

Thank you so much to everyone who responded. I hope you all understand how much your advice is appreciated by myself everyone who will read it in the future.
The problem was a worn wire from the f&r switch that ran underneath the cart. Speed bumps (known as topes here in Mexico) are abundant here.
