Default 91 ezgo solenoid clicks, wont move

working on 1991 ezgo electric was working fine, started quiting on my brother and he said he would let it "cool off" and it would work again for a little while. I brought it home replaced all cables with 1/0 cable on batteries and motor. sometimes it works sometimes it dont. The solenoid clicks. I have 37 volts on solenoid and to the controller when i press the pedal. Any suggestions?

Have you tried jumping the solenoid when its not moving to see if it moves? Clicking doesnt always mean working...just a suggestion..

If there is a pedal switch under the floor mat i would check there.

solenoid works fine. I have 37v on input side and 10v on output side when pedal is not depressed. when I press the pedal I get 37v on the out put side of the solenoid and to the controller

Have you checked the potentiometer?

Remove the resistor from the 2 large solenoid posts and repeat the test, same results = solenoid is working.


P.S. CheahaGolfCarts
1991 Ezgo does not have a peddle box or a peddle box micro switch used with the ITS system 1994 & up. Instead it has a potentiometer with a micro switch located on the center bracket between the batteries.

I have a 91 also. Once had a similar issue and it turned out to be the FNR switch. The switch was getting hot and would loose contact if not in exactly the right position. I rebuilt and beefed up the switch. No problems since.

moved fnr switch while having pedal depressed and it would move a little. So i took it apart and it still looks new, but it did have very slight dirt/black residue on about 10% of each of four contacts so i cleaned them with a small brass wire brush. do i need to put some type of electrical contact grease or something on this before i put it back together?

Perfect thread, I'm having the same issue with mine. On our last trip the kids took two carts for a cruise and returned on foot with two deaf carts a mile away. They both have charge and they click in reverse and forward but no movement...
