Default EZ GO Textron

Troubleshooting 1989 EZ GO Text. I have good voltage to small terminal of solenoid but nothing forward. Jumped solenoid to motor and motor checks OK. Before I replace solenoid could micro switches be the culprit (wired wrong?) Not sure next step!

Solenoid activation happens when + and - are present at the small terminals.
If you are missing + or - the solenoid will not activate. Check the activation circuit.
If + and - are present and the solenoid does not activate (close) then the solenoid has failed.

Welcome to BGW!!!

The description of your cart doesn't add up.
If it is a 1989, it's a Marathon body style and has either a Resistor type drive or Electronic Speed Controller type drive.
If it is a 1999, it could be a Medalist or a TXT and has either a Series or DCS type drive.

Once we know for sure what the cart is, we might be able to find a schematic for it.

Plug your serial number into this site and it'll tell what it was when it left the factory, or at least you'll be able to identify the body style from the pictures on the page.

Ooops! Scotty added a schematic to his post while I was typing.

Thanks Guys! I put in a new solenoid it has correct + voltage at small terminal. Other sm terminal (nothing) with key on and F/R switch in forward. This is puzzling. My '89 EZ go is Resistor type.

Okay just checked solenoid with key off and F/R in neutral and I have 36v on both small solenoid terminals.

.1 volt on left large solenoid terminal 0 on right large. 36volts on small terminals.

Got that reversed in photo! As you look .1 volt right large terminal and 0 large left terminal. This is a new solenoid.

I got confused by the "1989 EZ GO Text. " description. Apparently you were abbreviating Textron as "Text." rather than misspelling TXT, like I thought you did.
For future reference, your cart is commonly referred to as a: "1989 Marathon Resistor" cart.
Using that description will help those trying to help you.

Here is a schematic and a wiring diagram.
Where, exactly, are you placing your DVM's Negative test to get those voltage readings?

It should be attached to the most negative terminal on the battery pack.
That is the one with the black wire from the Charger Receptacle and the high current cable to motor attached.

Unhappy Re: EZ GO Textron

Thanks for diagrams. It looks like all is wired properly. Still no juice to motor and attached is the measurements on new solenoid.

First of all, if you have your DVM's Negative test lead attached to the most negative terminal of your battery pack, you cannot measure a negative voltage on one of the solenoid's small terminals.

Does the solenoid click when pedal is pushed?
What are the voltages on the solenoid's large terminals when pedal is up?
What are they when pedal is down?
