If you turn the shaft where motor goes, one wheel should turn. To turn at wheel, you have to lower one wheel so it can not rotate, then when wheel is turned shaft should turn all the way to the motor shaft. With both wheels off ground, it will not turn the motor shaft, as the opposite wheel just turn in the spider gear in the differential.

Carts rarely have broken rear end, but can have stripped drive motor coupling, or bad axle/hub connection.
