Okay lets get to work. Based on your serial number you have a :

Make: Medalist

Type: Electric 36 V

Model: Electric Medalist

Sounds about right?

@gerryr, this could be as simple as the reverse switch being the problem. It is a mechanical contact and could be not making the connection. You can check that by switching the wires from the forward/reverse switch and see if you now have only reverse. If so, you know it's the switch. You did not tell us if your cart has a backup beeper and if it still comes on. Also, let us know if this cart has a dash mounted toggle switch.

I replaced the forward reverse control board. Now I have no reverse. Reverse worked prior to replacing control board.

@mikegolf have you tried to switch the wires to see if you then have reverse but no forward?

I have a 1997 36 volt EZgo and it’s running fine while in forward but when shifted in reverse it still goes forward?

mine was the micro switch on the passenger side of the forward reverse switch. I just bent the prong put on the lower side of the metal just below the white tip of the switch. This way it pushes further into the switch housing.
