Customer: replied 1 month 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 1 month 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 1 month ago.

Looks like this?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I know this box where the caple attache but i dont know how to jump across the cables?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No the engine not spin I jump the cabels there are sparks but the engine not start
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
u advice me to replace the start cable
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month 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 1 month ago.
How can i turn the engine with drive belt?I dont think my gas cart have this option ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month 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 1 month ago.
the engine not locked up
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok as already I did the jumper please can you locate the starter?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month 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 21 days 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 21 days 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 21 days 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 21 days 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 21 days ago.
The pulley on the engine drive shaft
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 21 days 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 21 days ago.
i remove the belt and I couldn't turn the pulley ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 21 days ago.

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