Electrical Problem???


New Member
I have a 2007 yamaha Golf Cart. I use it about 1-2 times a month. However last time I used it, the turn signal was left on and drained the battery. Upon discovering the drained battery I charged it. Now the problem is no power to the starter. I have headlights, taillights, turn signal, horn, brake lights etc... however no starter when the accelerator pedal is pushed. I removed the plastic guard on the "starter's solenoid" I believe, and am able to jump across the (+) and (-) with a jumper wire. When arcing across the wire, the starter cranks over like normal, however the accelerator pedal is not doing anything. Is there a switch, or fuse that might be blown between the pedal and the starter, or are there any other trouble shooting ideas any of you might have for me. Thank You.

Welcome Mike!

I'm no Yamaha tech but it sure sounds like your solenoid has died. Can you check for voltage on the small terminals?
