Customer Question

I have 1998 ezgo. I charged up the batteries backed out of garage when I started forward in just won't go. I used volt meter. From -neg battery to both sides of solenoid and voltage drops to about 20 volts when pedal is pushed. Is it the solenoid that needs replaced?

Voltage should not drop off. Not the solenoid, check battery voltage and cables.
