Replaced Forward/Reverse Switch on a EZGO TXT 36v Now I Have No Reverse

I have an older EZGO TXT. Not sure of the year. Just replaced the forward/reverse switch and now I have no reverse. Solenoid clicks but no movement. I have checked everywhere I have researched to check for correct voltages. Everything checks out. Any help is much appreciated.

Is it series or PDS? On a series cart it is possible for this to happen if the cables were installed on the F/R in the incorrect position.

I am not sure. How can i tell? If I swap the cables on the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock post on the switch I only have reverse, no forward.

See below wire diagram. 3 and 9 should both be connected to motor stator. Top and bottom should be connected to A2 on motor (possibly controller as well) and B+ on controller.

Sorry for the delayed response. Finally got to a chance to check everything. All my wiring is correct. My controller doesn't have an A2 terminal. I even tried swapping all the cables around. Still the same. I have one or the other forward or reverse. Solenoid clicks in forward and reverse. I feel like it's something simple, maybe not.

If the wiring is correct and solenoid is clicking both directions then your FNR is probably just gone bad.

Place multimeter on M- and B-, if you read voltage in one direction and not the other with pedal pressed just enough to activate solenoid that would confirm FNR.

It's a brand new switch. Just replaced it. Voltage in forward and nothing in reverse without pressing the pedal. Same when I press the pedal. Guess I need another switch?

New doesn't always mean good. Especially the past few years it seems like everyone forgot what "QC" was because I've got plenty of DOA parts even from quality suppliers.

Try unplugging the orange wire on the FNR and see if it goes both ways just to eliminate possibility of a controller fault, but sounds like the switch is bad.

Unplugged the orange wire. Nothing changed. Still only have one direction. Solenoid clicks in both directions. Gonna order another FNR now.
