Question about Cars & Trucks
YAMAHA GOLF CART, GASOLINE OPERATED. WHEN I TURN ON THE KEY OMETIMES IT WOUNT START. CHARGED THE BATTERY AND TRIED TO START IT SAME THING IT WONT START. WHEN I PUT THE GAS PEDAL TO GO FORWARD THERE IS A CLICK AND A SLIGHT HUM BUT WONT START.
Check the starter solenoid, but sounds like the starter is bad. If it is draining the battery when you try to start it, then it is the starter. Check for a bad ground first though. The starte requires a great deal of amperage and a weak ground could be the problem.

so many possibilities...
does it roll fairly freely? (checking to see if the brakes or rearend seized up)
Are there any "bad" sounds like things grinding? (Connection between Motor and rearend, axle splines...)
If all that is solid, it is likely in the controller.... (it takes a solid charge right... No bad batteries in there or loose connection? might want to check all the battery connections to make sure none are burnt...)
1997.. does it have the electonic speed control by that year? the other possibilty is that the accelerator is not working corectly. they used a resistor system on old ones that has contactors that would get worn out.... Newer ones control a potentiometer(sp) that controlled the speed.
Only a few real components to check, but if you are not mechanically and electically inclined, could be tough to isolate.

With the engine running at about half power/speed, put a volt meter across the battery terminals. The meter should read somewhere around 14.5 volts. If it is below 13 volts it is definitely not charging. Consider that the battery, unless new, could also be failing.

There is a custom Golf Cart that looks like a Jeep and is considered an electric club car. If you get a chance there is a show called Barter Kings and one of the shows actually shows one. They are not cheap.
