Good morning, just back from action, and I see you have had no response. Do you still need help? First thing , connect the charger, and see if it will come on, this is a voltage test ,to see if the primary circuit is complete. If charger comes on, cables and batteries are ok. Do you have voltmeter to check the voltages? Do you have 36 volts to both terminals of the solenoid, with key on? Do you hear any click from solenoid when pedal is pressed? do you have 36 volts to the drive motor armature terminals.?

Evening Sir, unfortunately yesterday was the only day I had to work on this cart because starting at 0500 this morning til the 27th I'm off doing a Dept of Defense contract job. I can tell you from yesterday that my voltage meter showed just shy of 37 volts on the batteries but that's all I could tell you other than it did nothing, no clicking or anything

OK> when you get back to it, check for battery voltage at the key switch, that is where everything has to begin. Have a good night.
