Customer: replied 6 months ago.
First thank you for responding and for you info the club car working by gasoline
About your questions, yes the reverse buzzer is working and the battery pack voltage too
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Gas cart! Ok, battery voltage is ok? If you go direct to the starter solenoid, where the battery cable attaches, and jump across the two cables, will the engine spin?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Looks like this?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I know this box where the caple attache but i dont know how to jump across the cables?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Use old screwdriver or another short battery cable and touch the two terminals at same time.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No the engine not spin I jump the cabels there are sparks but the engine not start
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Can you turn the engine, using the drive belt/ Engine not locked? Engine should have spun, or battery, cables, starter bad.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
u advice me to replace the start cable
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

No , do you have jumper cables, so you can go direct to the starter solenoid , to see if it may be battery or cable problem? You can turn engine with drive belt?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
How can i turn the engine with drive belt?I dont think my gas cart have this option ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Engine is driving a belt to the transmission. Or just see if you can put a wrench on the starter generator, just to be sure the engine is not locked up!

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
the engine not locked up
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

OK, with jumper cables, can you go direct to the starter / generator and spin engine? If not starter is no good.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok as already I did the jumper please can you locate the starter?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

The cable from the starter solenoid, goes direct to the starter/generator. One terminal on the starter solenoid is the +battery cable, the other, is cable to the starter.

Hi again sorry for late i think i found my problem you know the clutch drive it look like not move when i press the padle the statrer generator move but the clutch stack which cut the belt so what do u think
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

If the belt is locking the pulley, it will affect the start. Jump the drive belt off and see if the engine will run.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The pulley is stuck so when i press the pedal the starter generator move but the pulley stuck which cut the belt
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Sorry what do u mean of jump the drive belt of
I need belt moving to move the pully which start the engine but the pully is stuck
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

OK,the pulley on the generator? Or the pulley on the engine drive shaft? I was thinking drive belt from engine to transmission.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The pulley on the engine drive shaft
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

If the pulley is locked and will not turn, the engine is locked up. I would remove the belt to eliminate it from the possibility of it being belt or pulleys. Then if drive pulley does not turn, engne is locked up!

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
i remove the belt and I couldn't turn the pulley ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Remove the spark plug , then try again, but sounds like the engine has failed!
