Club Car Gas Golf Cart Won't Start Throttle Cable Smoking

I have a 1990 gas Club Car golf cart that won't start. Today when pushing the gas pedal to try to start it the starter did not turn and the throttle cable going from the carburetor to the electrical box started smoking and burnt the cable case. Could this mean I lost a ground or something and the cable was acting as the ground?


Yes it's more than likely a bad connection on the ground strap. It will either run from the starter generator to the frame or the engine to the frame. you'll probably need a new throttle cable also once you fix the ground problem.
