OK,So the only thing that would affect power to the motor is the solenoid, cables, and battery beyond what you've replaced.You need to check for voltage getting to the motor with the cart jacked up and put on jack stands.If you're not getting battery voltage to the motor you can then trace it back until you find the component stopping the flow of power.Make sure your battery cables on the batteries aren't corroded at all. and they are tight.Any corrosion will cause resistance and less power will be transferred on from that point.Check that stuff and if you need more help let me know.Thanks

Could it be the brushes in the motor all connections are clean
Expert:  Jeremy R. replied 2 years ago.
Yes it could you can check voltage to the motor and if it's good then the motor would be the problem.They don't fail very often though so keep that in mind.
