I’ve got a 1996 EZGO TXT 36v that I’ve put a new ITS sensor, new forward reverse switch, new controller and new solenoid and it still won’t run, it just clicks at the solenoid. I did the test on the motor and it runs. I’ve got power at the motor but it won’t go. Any ideas?

Have you downloaded the 1996 E-Z-Go Text Service manual? It has a great troubleshooting section that you can use with a multimeter to diagnose.

I have the same cart but my solenoid is not clicking, so I am running down the list now.

Any chance you could take a picture of your solenoid? I’m a bit confused as to the direction of the solenoid. The old solenoid that I removed had the lip on top and terminals closer to the top but when I received replacement it was labeled the opposite direction with lip and terminals on bottom.

I appreciate you uploading pictures of the solenoid. I thought I had wired the two front small terminals backward but looks just like yours. I can only get it to run with a jumper from positive side of battery to the small post with yellow wires.
