Default 1982 DS Trouble

Hey guys. Just rebuilt a 1982 DS with the 5 solenoids. All new solenoids, everything cleaned, installed new batteries 2 days ago.

Cart has been running flawlessly. Got on it today (lever in F) and turned the key and the main solenoid clicks on, unclicks with key off or FNR in N. Cart is still running fine.

I assume this means the micro switch in the "speed box" for the main or master solenoid has failed. I have never had to go inside of one of these boxes but it seems to me if the micro switch fails the solenoid would not get the 36v+ to engage. Thoughts? Or am I missing something here. Thanks!

Now I'm more confused. Just took it out for a ride and it has stopped acting up.

All is good now but I've never had a problem "just go away." LOL at this.

Either the micro-switch is failing in the closed position or the throttle linkage is not allowing the slider inside the box to move back away from the master solenoid micro-switch on "pedal up":

Thank you Sergio.

I have never been inside one of these. That part #6 in the diagram, is that the way it is shaped or is it cut away to show other parts?

Also, from the diagram would the master be on the left or right? Can't tell without the wires.

That is the way it is shaped (so happy to finally be able to contribute!!!). I can take a pic of mine and the "box" if it helps you; box is on the workbench and "slide" is hanging in the cart, fully visible.
