club car golf cart (gas engine) will not start

I have been working on 2 gas engines golf carts that would not run right.
One had a gas problem. I fixed that one & it runs fine. The other one will not
begin to start. I think it is a electrical problem. I put it in forward gear, turn key to start, depress accelerator pedel & nothing happens. No clicking -----
nothing, I have charged the battery, key switch ok, new solenoid. Fuse (10
amp.) ok.

There are micro switches on the gas pedal that could be bad, there should be a box under the floor board that the cables run through or somewhere in that area that has the switch inside. these are a common issue that goes wrong with them.

I still believe you have a bad micro switch that will give a no start condition . I was a golf course mechanic for ten + years and that would be the 1st place i would go to for this condition.

Great !!! It works again. Thanks rotti1968. You were so right about the
mirco switches under the brake/accelerator pedals going bad. I
disconected & cleaned the mirco switches that were full of sand. This
used golf cart was driven on a sandy beach or through all the sand traps
on a golf course. There was about 2 inches of sand around & in the micro
swltches box. It starts & runs great.


Thanks again, willie

HELP!!! I ran the golf cart for 4 days with no problems. It would not atempt
to start the 5 day. I recharged battery, key switch ok, kill & run switches ok
(below floor). The forward/reverse/service switches ok. I jumped the 2 post
on the new solenoid & the starter turned as starting. Cleaned battery post &
ground to frame. How do I check the voltage regulator?

I am lost again (rotti1968) HELP!!!

Thanks again, willie

PS: Is there certain way to hook up the new solenoid. There was not markings by the posts. I connected from + battery to 1 large post & did
the same as the old solenoid was hooked.

I have the golf cart runing again. My local Car Quest parts store sold me the
wrong solenoid. The right one is a continuous duty solenoid that they replaced.

Thanks again rotti1968 for all your help.

This is probably not the correct way to ask a question, but here goes.
I have a 96 Club car, gas (forgot to check what engine I have) I have had this for 4 years and never had a problem, until about 6 months ago
Problem #1 it started about 6 months ago, you press the accelerator and its like a spinning/slipping belt noise, after about 5 seconds, it will crank/start. I have replace the belt, still the same thing
Problem #2 just started today, no slow speed, when it starts, it only runs at fast speed. I took the cover off the throttle box and cleaned everything, still same thing. Thanks for any reply

I think you may have a kawasaki engine fe290 .... I would check your battery connections make sure they are clean and that your battery is good 12 volts and load tests good , your starter may be starting to go also. thats for problem #1 . Problem # 2 when you say at fast speed is it over speeding? or it will not idle down or respond to the throttle? you might have a governor issue external or internal.

I have an old club car which used to run fine but has bbeen sitting and now won't start. I added gas but the fuel filter seems to only have a very little fuel in it. Does anyone out there know how to prime the fuel system?

There is no real priming of the fuel system. There is a fuel pump on these engines, or use the impulse of the engine to pull fuel . you more then likely need to clean your carburetor, and,replace your fuel filter since you say this unit has sat for sometime.

My gas club car won't start... the battery is fully charged but the engine won't turn over.
It was stuck in the mud and rocked back and forth but stuck so bad it had to be towed out. It started ok for the evening but I heard a loud pop as I went up a steep hill and when I later turned off the engine... it wouldn't start.
Any ideas why it won't start?
Thanks !
