Year model? Where is f/r switch, on the dash or at the knee? 36 volt or 48-volt cart? Do you have battery pack voltage to the solenoid?

2007 36 volt cart. 37 volts at solenoid. Ju.ping solenoid or applying 12 volts to the small terminals has no effect!
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 months ago

Small terminals get 36 volts too! But if jumping solenoid does not help, the solenoid is not the problem. Are you getting voltage to the drive motor on the field pr s terminals? The A or armature terminals have to have 36 volts at all times. Here is basic troubleshooting guide.
