ez go metalist no also forward and losses power switch is rocker on dash
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 3 months ago.

Has the solenoid ever been replaced? It is what has to complete the circuit for drive. The actual forward/reverse change is in the controller if the f/r switch on dash is good. So I suspect the solenoid s not staying engaged. Either it is loosing power to it from controller, or it is just not good..
