You may have dirt that has put the threads in a bind. If you can, lubricate the threads and holder and try again. It may help to go a little higher and then back down.

They say that is does not have a cabin air filter. That being said a dirty filter would only restrict the air flow and not stop the a/c from getting cold. Hook up the gauges to make sure you have the proper pressures. If so then check to see if the low pressure line is cold going into the evaporator. If cold then check the heater hoses to see if they are both hot. If they are then you may have a bad heater control valve letting the heat into the system . Block one heater hose with a clamp to see it the ac will cool down.

Fitting batteries to any vehicle large or small you use the same basic rules.
You ALWAYS wire batteries positive to negative, (+ to -, or red to black).
You NEVER connect more than one wire to each battery terminal post.
The batteries on a golf buggy run in a basic 'serial' setup. You link the batteries together as a chain. The batteries and cables should 'snake' across the battery box with an open positive terminal post at one end and an open negative terminal post at the other end ready to connect to the correct leads on the buggy.

Your best option is to recheck the cable routing you used. you might have knocked a connector loose or nipped a cable putting the glove box back.
Are you getting any warning lights or dash messages as a possible clue to the 'No Start'?

Which engine is in it? Comment below and I'll try and find a diagram for it. First take lots of photos and notes before you start as reference for when you get stuck. (You will get stuck)! you might need to remove plastic guards, covers and some air intake pipes to gain access to some of the pulley wheels when putting the new one on. You will be working by feel only for some of this job so trace the route of the belt with your hand all the way around so you know where its supposed to go.
One of the pulleys the smooth side of the belt runs over is on a spring loaded tensioner arm. This needs to be swung against the spring to slacken the belt. Some engines have a slot or pair of holes you can line up and insert a pin to lock it in the 'slack' position. Again follow the belt around its whole length as you take it off to remind your self exactly where it goes. Fit the new one, this may take several attempts, and carefully release the tensioner.
A lot of companies recommend you change the tensioner as well. I agree as I've had one fail on me when my belt snapped. the tensioners just bolt into place and need to be fitted before you refit the new belt.
Once fitted, again trace it with your hand to check it is squarely set on all the pulley wheels, then start the car.
Then, KEEPING YOUR HANDS WELL CLEAR, look and check the belt is moving smoothly on all the pulleys you can see and not sliding from side to side. Check the dash board for any warning lights or messages and turn the engine off. Refit any pipes, guards and covers, recheck for any warning lights and messages on the dashboard and that should be job done!

This is a valve built onto your vehicles automatic transmission to help control transmission fluid flow for gear changes. To be honest, if your not good with transmissions your best option is to pay a Good gearbox specialist to deal with it. Messing about with automatic transmissions as an amateur is just asking for trouble.
