Default 1988 Marathon -solenoid clicks-wont move

I have a 1988 Ez- Go Marathon that has plenty of battery charge, but it will not move at all. When you push the pedal the solenoid clicks but the cart it self will not move. I tried taking a wire and jumping the solenoid but it did nothing. I have a meter on hand, I think if I had a wiring diagram or instuctions on how to check the correct voltage at each point, I possibly could trace down the problem. If you have a wiring diagram with the correct voltage readings....please post....also...If you have a solution Im open to suggestions....Thanks

Check the voltage at the battery,then at the solenoid.They should be the same or within a few tenths of a volt.If good to this point,connect the meter to the output terminal on the solenoid(wire going to the starter/gen.) and press the pedal.If you have the same voltage as the other stud,you have a starter-issue.If you don't have voltage,then the solenoid is bad.I've seen them click,but not transfer power.Another quick test is to take a screwdriver,cross the solenoid terminals and see if the starter spins.There is a ground at the frame,near the battery,make sure it is clean,and all of the connections are good.Hope this helps.
