Customer Question
I have a 94...
I have a 94 ez go. New batteries, solenoid clicks, runs good for a bit then quits.. Depress the pedal a few times, sometimes goes again.. Replaced potentiometer and solenoid, still does the same thing.. Can the f/r switch cause this? Joe

Hi Joe

I’m Wayne.

I will be assisting you with this issue today.

what you are describing is the forward/reverse controller

the terminals for the contact is worn and or burn marks

you will need to replace that

I hope this helps you

Good morning Wayne, cleaned and sanded the grounds.. Still wouldn't move, still click at the solenoid when I pressed the pedal.. Pushed the pedal a few more times, like 10, then moved again.. Still doing what it did before I replaced all the other parts.. Working right now, I know its going to quit again.. Any other suggestions?
Technician: Wayne, Engine Rebuilder replied 3 months ago

Hi Joe

the only thing it can be is a poor contact

reason being all the parts that were replaced that would cause that

next thing to test is the F/N/R microswitch

here is a wiring diagram of it click here
