Customer Question
It will not go...

It will not go forward or reverse. Replaced batteries 5/15 and just put a new solenoid in it. Replaced the speed sensor about 2 months ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the sensor have a wire-wrapped magnet? If so, have you checked it with an ohmmeter?

I believe so and no I have not checked with an ohmmeter.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '15 electric?

It is a 2004 Club Car Precedent 48v

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I explained in my first sentence what I have done so far.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it, first issue I have had with the car
