I purchased a 2006 club car gas precedent and noticed it would start slow sometimes. The belt was slipping so I tighten the belt then the starter destroyed it self. Ordered and new starter and belts. Still it stared slowly. Battery tested very low so replaced it also. Still same thing. Someone said the solenoid could cause this problem so I purchased one. Here’s where the issue happened. When I was changing the solenoid I accedently hit the hot cable on the battery with the orange wire and it sparked. I in stalled the solenoid and soon as I connected the battery the starter began to spin. I traced the orange wire and it has a diode inline and it was blown. Replaced it and now I can connect the battery and the starter won’t spin until I turn the key switch. Thought it might be the gas peddle switch but when I unplug the peddle the key will still spin the starter. I’m out of ideas. Any response will be great. Yes I regret not disconnecting the battery.
