Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Make and model of the cart? Ezgo or Club Car? If you attach the charger does it come on and charge? Are we sure the solenoid is wired same as before? Send pictures if you can. The F/R control should be in neutral when straight up. I assume this is electric cart and not gas?
OK, try re-positioning the handle.
Is there not a screw holding the lever to the switch shaft?
Does the solenoid click when you press on the pedal to go? Maybe the f/r switch is not the problem.
Does the F/R switch move to its positions and lock in the detent? No direction forward or reverse? Here is the schematic.
Positive battery cable from the battery pack goes to one main terminal of the solenoid, the other side of solenoid goes to the controller and the drive motor S1 terminal. What other cables go to the main terminals on yours? Phone call is extra and I had rather continue here as I don't know what good a call would do. You did see the link to the wiring diagram?
