Club car golf cart

I have a 1999 club car golf cart. Just had new batteries, new motor control, and new solenoid. The car runs great in forward but when I put it in reverse, i makes a noise, but does not move. Can anyone help me? Thanks iman41

Can you describe the noise? Is it a hum? or a buzzer like a backup alarm?

And, this may be a stupid question but I want to confirm that your cart is electric and not gas powered.

Why was controller and solenoid replaced?

The motor control and seloniod was installed after the new batteries. The cart died and the golf cart repair shop said that the controler and selonoid had to be replaced. Concerning the noise in reverse, when I put the cart in reverse, it makes the normal reverse noise but does not move, Hope this helps. Also, it is a 48V electric cart.

I posted a question about my golf cart. Up-date. I had new batteries install since the old ones were five years old. The car was running great but died. Had it repaired again, the service man told me that the motor controler and solenoid were bad and I had them replaced. It is running great, but suddenly when I put it in reverse, it makes the normal noise but does not move. Hope this helps.

I am not too familiar with golf carts so I am just shooting from the hip here.

I would suspect that you can put the cart on blocks and do some testing. You should be able to check with a meter to see if the motor is getting voltage when put in reverse. Or maybe there is something loose like a belt.

Thanks, I will give it a try. PS I looked for loose wires but could not find one.

The noise is the normal reverse noise. As I said the cart runs great in forward but when I put it in reverse it will not move. Thanks

As I said, you should be able to chase down the 48 volts from the battery to the parts until you get to the motor. Looking on line I see there is a "Forward & Reverse Switch Assembly for 1996 & Up Club Car 48-Volt PowerDrive Models" maybe that is bad.

Not sure if the solonid has anything to do with the drive but you did mention the solonid was replaced, maybe that was installed wrong.
