When it does not work, do you hear the foot micro switch clicking, and does it click the solenoid? If the solenoid and foot switch clicks, and cart does not run, the solenoid needs to be replaced.

I do hear a click and a attempt (surges forward a bit) to go then nothing.

Moments latter everything works fine
