Customer Question
I have an intermittent...

I have an intermittent problem. Sometimes when I push the accelerator pedal down, nothing happens. I release it and press it again and the cart works fine. I want to fix it before it strands me.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

I have a 2006 txt.

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

I,m fixing it myself and haven't done anything yet. I have the full service manual if needed.

When the pedal is pressed, it has to close the solenoid and send a signal to the controller. Check the solenoid for voltage from the key switch. The small terminals on the solenoid are the ones to test. If it gets voltage and the solenoid, doesn't close, your solenoid is going out.
