Decoding the Mystery: When Your Electric Club Car Golf Cart Refuses to Go!

The Clicking Conundrum

It’s a scenario that can leave any golf cart owner scratching their head. Your trusty electric Club Car, equipped with a 36V power system, has suddenly transformed into a stubborn statue. The solenoids, those tiny electrical switches responsible for transmitting power to the motor, are clicking away, but the wheels remain steadfastly planted. First video shows the issue, second video lower on this page shows what we found was wrong!

Possible Culprits

While the clicking solenoids may sound like Morse code from your cart’s mechanical heart, they’re actually communicating a few potential issues:

  1. Battery Woes: The most common culprit behind this issue is often related to the batteries. A weak or dead battery pack can result in insufficient power reaching the motor, leading to the solenoid clicks without movement.
  2. Faulty Solenoids: Despite their rhythmic clicking, solenoids might be malfunctioning or failing to transmit the necessary current to propel your cart.
  3. Controller Gremlins: The controller, which dictates the power flow from the batteries to the motor, can also be responsible for your cart’s unresponsiveness. If the controller isn’t communicating effectively, your cart may stay put.
