Sound like you have either a bad C.D.I box or bad pick-up coil.Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

Yamaha G1 Golf cart...Engine does not crank when key is on and gas pedal is depressed... suggestion??.. I've heard that the CDI might be the issue...Discontinued part?

cranking is turning over which indicates that the battery and starter is doing the job
cranking but not firing indicates ignition or fuel problems
now that you have the correct terminology perhaps you can get an answer
first test is to pull a plug ground it out or use a spark plug tester crank it over to see if there is spark
Good spark forget CDI and coil so look at fuel
NO spark indicated , check for 12 volts from the ignition switch on the start circuit
Ignition switches have to power wires to the coil
on gives power when cranking and the other continues power when the starter is nor engaged
power in both positions move on to next check
no power from the switch to the coil when cranking --get new switch next check if both wires have 12 volts is the ignition circuit
check for safety micro switches not working right up to the CDI
power to the CDI but no spark --replace cdi
power from the cdi nut still no spark --replace the coil
AS to not available
check after marker as the units are generic and made by electronic companies not golf cart manufacturers so it is a distinct possibility that a cdi from some where else will fit

Ezgo golf cart 2001 model turns over but will not start. put in new battery and fresh gas. any ideas?

See if the spark plug is firing. If not then you looking at ignition coil or a ground being where it's not supposed to be. If it is firing then look at fuel pump, carb, air hose.

36 volt ezgo

First of all, lift rear axle off the ground and place blocks or jack stands underneath. Check to see if you have 36 volts On your batteries. Now you want to run a jumper across the big cables on the solenoid. Press the accelerator and the motor should engage. Clicking is a pretty sure sign that the solenoid is bad. Please let me know if this is useful. I can further elaborate more troubleshooting if this doesn't solve your problem.

You will need an assistant.Mark and Remove all spark plug wires and 1 spark plug. Put the wire on the plug and hold it with INSULATED pliers ( the shock hurts like mad if you try this by hand). Place the electrode end of the plug against the motor somewhere where you can see the end clearly ( be sure you are in the shade ) . Have your assistant crank the motor over and watch for the spark jumping across to the electrode. The spark must be blue - any orange or yellow in the spark indicates a weak coil. Hope this helps!!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Try replacing your spark plugs. Make sure its getting gas. Make sure your air filter is nice and clean. Check your fuel filter. and if all those fail try replacing your coil.

I can jump the solenoid, to turn car over but will not start

You seem to know what you are doing by jumping the Solenoid. Jumping the Solenoid tells me it would not crank with the Key and that can mean you also lost the power to the coil. You need to check the "Tickler" wire at the Solenoid for the cranking problem. You need to check for spark at the plugs for the NO start condition.

When you jump the Solenoid make sure the Ignition is in Run position. A bad Ignition switch or Ignition Relay can keep power from going through the Ignition. You may want to backtrack from the plugs if no spark, to see if the Coil is getting power.

If you have fire at the plugs check your Inertia switch if you do not hear the fuelpump. You will also need the Ignition switch to work for the fuelpump to go on. All problems can come from Ignition switch.
