If you attach the charger does it come on? Do you have 48 volts to both sides of the solenoid?

CHARGER DOESN'T COME ON YES BOTH SIDES OF SOLENOID 48 VOLTS
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 2 months ago

With charger not coming on, you have a problem in the primary circuit. The wires from the charger port, thru the battery pack, back to the charge port. Look for a bad connection or broken wire.
