    Hello Cartaholics!

    I have a Club Car DS electric golf cart that won't go. Worked fine before.

    I turn key on...

    Turn F/R to forward. I can hear the Micro Switch click, but when I press go

    Turn F/R to reverse. The back up buzzer engages. I can hear the Micro Switch click, but when I press go

    I tried to follow all battery connections and noticed previous owner by passed fuse with a bolt.

    Went to talk to mechanic at Dallas Golf Cart....stated it sounded like potential F/R switch. Purchased for $98 and replaced.

    I also bought a fuse and replaced.

    I filled battery cells with distilled water.

    So now I charge overnight and go to test. Still No Go...same sounds.

    Super bummed right now...any suggestions?

    The serial number should be on a tag just under the glove box on the passengers side of the golf cart or inside the passenger glove box depending on the year and model.

    Serial # AA0115-007523

    October 2017 was the last time I drove it.

    The serial # was under the ignition panel.

    That is a series cart with which I have very little experience but I would check the OBC lock out Schematics and manuals are on my website

    Your picture didn't load. I don't think yahoo mail allows hot linking images.

    I tried to post it on the site. It looks like this. The end does not have a speed sensor that I can see.
