Does the solenoid close/click, when the pedal is pressed? Do you have 36 volts on both sides of the solenoids cable connections? Does the charger come on when attached to the cart?

to all three questions
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 7 months ago

Does the solenoid make the connection to the controller and drive motor? If you jump across the solenoids large cable terminals, will cart run? Just because the solenoid clicks, does not mean the internal contacts close.
