The cart has been stored for the past 4 or 5 years. The batteries take charge but when you put in gear and press accelerator nothing happens

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

We we're trying to put in in running shape, the batteries were cleaned and charged. They all maintained a charge so I don't know what process to take to track the problem

Do you have a voltmeter to check the voltages? Ezgo or Club Car. Do you have voltage to the key switch? Ezgo has a reed swithc at the charger receptical, and if it does not close when charger is unplugged , you get no voltage to the key.
