Default Problems with my 98 ezgo

I just bought a 1998 ezgo. When we got it home it ran fine. The next time we tried to ride it wouldn't go. I checked the batteries and all seems fine. I replaced the solenoid and checked the micro switch under the floor. What should I check next?

Without more information I would start by checking the reed switch in the charger receptacle. You can do a search here on the forum for reed switch and you should find plenty of threads describing how to check/bypass it.

I'm guessing there is no solenoid click when you try to go? Trace out the + side with this chart below.
The - side of the solenoid activation (black) comes from the controller

Okay that's different

Look for a bad cable connection or a bad F&R high amp connection
