Gas or electric cart? The foot pedal has to close switch and send power to the solenoid.
Do you have power to the foot switch.
You are not getting voltage from the foot switch to the solenoid. Do you have a voltmeter to test ?
Sounds like voltage , not bad solenoid!
If you jump from the big terminal, to the small , the solenoid is good. and you need to check the foot switch.
At the foot pedal assembly.
Trace wire from solenoid,back to it's source.
You have to get a voltmeter, less than $10.00 at auto or retail store!
you may have a broken wire, and it can only be found with meter or testlght.
