Electric Vehicles club car president: I have a 2004 electric

Customer Question

I have a 2004 electric club car president. it was just stalling while driving and once we let off the pedal and depressed again it would go again. this got progressively worse. it is now much worse. we replaced the sylinoid and that is working. reading up it sounds like it could be the controller. before we sink more money into that part do you have ideas on what we should look at?

Bypass the solenoid by putting both cables on the post, this is the connection the solenoid makes.

Ok
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that worked for a couple of times but then it quit again. tried the bypass again and it still isn't going. the issue is VERY intermittant
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
let me clarify by VERY intermittent it is mostly not working and then once every so often it seems to kick in and go then quits after a couple of feet
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
The solenoid may not be getting steady voltage from the foot switch. Check the small wires on the solenoid for battery voltage at pedal down!
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
If solenoid is dropping out , you get erratic operation.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok thanks. will try that
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
OK
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what is the voltage supposed to be?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
If cart is 48 volts, that is what it should be!
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
that is what it takes to keep the solenoid closed.
