The most common problem for Sega controllers not working is the controller itself. With the controller laying on a table with the buttons down take the back off with a small phillips screwdriver. Carefully lift the circuit board out trying not to disturb the buttons as they will fall right out. Turn the circuit board over and remove any of the soft rubbery pieces that may be stuck to it. You will see a set of contacts for each of the buttons. Clean these contact with a pencil eraser. Put it all back together and it should work like a charm for the next 20 years.

You should definately check the jacks for your console, that includes the controller's male and the console's female jack. If you have to, go ahead and wipe them clean with some alcohol, letting some drip in and let them air out. Its possible that some stuff has dripped inside the console's power or reset switch that caused problems with your Sega. You could try and go ahead taking the console apart, checking the terminals and stuff inside for mositure. Also, you shoudl try a new contol pad, as it definately didn't win any awards for its reliabitly.

Electric golf cart won't run on cold mornings. I hear solenoid click but nothing happens. When the temp warms up, it runs normal. I replaced controller, solenoid, speed control and ITS & switch.


Depends on how cold it's getting outside. Cold weather is ******* a battery. Try load testing your batteries. That "clicking" noise makes me believe that it's trying to start, but it's not pulling enough amps. Considering everything that you've already replaced, I would start there. Assuming you've already made certain all of your connections are good. Also, make sure the ground wire for your electrical system is good. Not loose, corroded, etc...
You can even call the local golf course and ask to speak to the golf cart mechanic. I would get several calls a week from drivers when I worked as a diesel mechanic.
