Can you please tell me why my go-kart will not run?
I only hear a click when pushing down on the throttle.
My neighbor has a Crazy Kart with the same battery connector as mine.
To troubleshoot we connected his battery wire connector (male end) into my go-karts battery connector (female end) and the wheels turned when pressing the throttle.
Thinking I had a bad battery, I bought a new set and fully charged them, but I still have the same issue with only hearing a click when pressing the throttle.
To easily troubleshoot this problem we recommend to install the battery pack from your neighbors Ground Force Drifter again and see if it runs with it installed. If it runs with your neighbors battery pack installed however it does not run and only clicks with the new battery pack installed then that points towards the new battery pack being defective.
We would normally recommend testing the Voltage of the battery pack when it is under load however since you have access to a good battery pack that would be the easiest way to troubleshoot the problem.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
I got my go kart to start go briefly after pulling the brakes lever a few times.
However, do the same trick doesn't work anymore.
I unplugged the brakes from the controller and still won't go.
if I do this and the go-kart runs, does that mean the controller or the brake lever need to be replaced?
Bridging the brake switch wires together on the controller did not make the go-kart go.
Does that tell you where and what the problem is?
Please let us know how it goes and if you have any questions.
