Not sure about solinoide closing
On the rt and lf large wires it reads 1.5
Until I depress the gas pedal then instantly goes to 0
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 3 years ago
Solenoid should have 36 volts on both sides.

Any thoughts on the difference in voltage.
Or could it b the power controller.
Also one more thing just found out.
Last yr. The kids drove it home...about 2 miles with the left side tire locked up.
Like dragging one leg. Then it never started again.
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 3 years ago
Does charger come on? Do you have 36 volts on both large post of the solenoid? Did you look at the Mr Carts site, showing all the tests!

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The large bolts are reading 1.5 v lf and rt
And since I'm at a camp site I'm unable to see the mr. cart site. I only have 2bars.
Thanks
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 3 years ago
Check all the battery connections, looking for a broken cable or connection. Follow the cables back from the solenoid, looking for a break in the circuit.
