Welcome to the forums.

I moved you to your own thread. Your cart is a different make and model than in the thread you posted.

If you have six batteries..... 6 x 8v = 48v is your operating voltage. If you are measuring 38v you have a loss somewhere. Start by checking the voltage at each battery first and then the whole group before the solenoid.

If the cart was working then suddenly stopped it could be any number of problems; bad key switch, bad accelerator pedal sensor/switch, bad solenoid, bad controller, broken wire or a loose connection. Most often it's something pretty simple and relatively inexpensive to fix. I usually start at the batteries with a volt meter and follow the current through the system until you find where it stops.
