There is a story here. Anytime someone had to remove the key switch plate, you know something good must have caused it. The reason is that the rivets that the factory installs have to be drilled out to pull that plate off. So what was it? We have heard nearly all of the excuses, from my kid lost it, all the way down to our favorite explanation of "the golf cart was not running, so we started bypassing switches to see if something was bad." All of which can be remedied by getting the right parts to fix the job, like the E-Z-GO Plastic Rivet for your Key Plate.Wiring around things is not a suitable troubleshooting method. You can seriously hurt yourself or others if you magically make the golf cart run and are not prepared for it. You should call the expert techs at Buggies Unlimited for a walk-through on what you need to do to identify which hard part is causing the problem. Once you have, ask for sales and get some E-Z-GO plastic rivets coming to reattach that key switch plate.
