Electric cart will not go

I have an EZGO 99 electric cart. Step on gas all I get is the solenoid clicks. Tested batteries at 38V, cleaned all wires an cables nothing still happening. When this problem started I was driving it very slowly then it stopped an I saw a small puff of smoke come from under the front of cart, smelled like wire but can't find anything. Don't know what else to check?

Welcome to the forums! Have you changed the solenoid? What voltages do you get across the solenoid when it is energized?

If you were driving and it died with a poof of smoke that's your best clue to find the problem. If the poof and smoke came from the front of the cart there is very little up there so it should be easy to find the culprit. I'm guessing something shorted out and I'd start by looking at the ignition switch and any wiring leading to lights/switches if your cart has them.
