Default Re: Another "Ike" casuality question ???

The green wire from the key switch connects to the large terminal with the positive cable from the battery pack.. The only way to ditch the OBC is to buy an aftermarket charger.. The OBC is the "brains" for the PowerDrive charger.. To make the cart operate without the OBC, the small yellow wire that connects to the solenoid needs to be disconnected, then run a wire from the solenoid to the B- at the controller.. Then at the charger receptacle, disconnect the 10ga. black wire on the back of the fuse, replace with a new 10ga. jumper to the negative terminal of battery #6..

Hope this helps..

The blue wire leaving the key switch, goes down to the microswitch located with either the pot box or V-glide.. From there, a green/white wire goes to another microswitch located on the F & R switch, a red wire goes from that switch to the main solenoid..

More than likely both of those microswitches are toast.. Put the rear of the car on jack stands and using a small jumper wire, jump from the positive battery cable to the small terminal with the red wire at the solenoid.. If the motor and controller are OK the motor should run when the accelerator is depressed.. This is assuming the pot box or V-glide is OK..

Good luck..

Hey LIVIN this may help , it seems like you have taken the Challange of getting this cart Back up and running ! If you are planning on keeping the cart its worth the $20+ dollers
I strongely Recommend you buy the Maint/Service Manual for the Cart it has all the procedures in it for trouble shooting the stuff which you are going through . http://www.monstergolfcars.com/19989...ual/p_471.html

While it won't offer the expert openions which some of the guys here have built up from years of working on Carts , I find the Illistrations and step by step trouble shooting instructions extremely helpful.

Sorry for interrupting CC John

I changed the resistor in PTO box, and still nothing.
Tonight I will look for signs of corrosion at resistor's and diodes .

Anyone please feel free to make any suggestions.....Thanks

I'm here in Round Rock, TX. I looked at two "IKE" cart, the first, the guy said it was just close to the water. It was under 6'. EVERYTHING under the seat was corroded, and eaten away. He wanted $500, and got it! I offered to haul it away for free. He laughed. The other was found a mile from there house, upside down. He wanted $500 also. I just laughed at him. So, to me steer clear of all IKE carts.

Livin hi again,
It's about time for the Manual to arrive so hang in there.
49 Volts is really low for a Battery Pack since the 48 V cart is bead at 48 Volts.
Remember the rules for troubleshooting anything, KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), this means disconnect all Gizmos not required, 48 to 12 Volt convertors, Light , Turn Signals
, charge meters ...etc. and disconnect them from the Battery side if this is where they start.
Next charge the Cart to 100% and let the charger trip off.
Then disconnect the 2 Large wires going from either side of the Battery Pack (Red And Black) so all you have is the Pack , read the Voltage again.
If the Voltage jumps up its time to move to the Next step and see whats pulling it down, otherwise check the lowest reading Batteries and replace them.
This should be reading 52-55 Volts for good batteries and good charge.

Let me know what you find out ?

Livin,

Have you pulled the motor off of the rear axle and inspected the condition of the internals.. The motor on my "Ike Cart" was junk after being submerged in salt water.. The brush holders were eaten away, along with major corrosion damage to the armature..

Also, if the cart went under with a hot battery pack, more than likely the controller is shot too.. All of the small speed control terminals were eaten off of the controller in my cart.. I have the control harness laying on my workbench and it has begun to ooze green goo out of the cut ends of most of the wires.. This is due to the salt water that wicked into the wires..

Anyone planning on reviving an "Ike" cart better plan on replacing every electrical component & wire in the cart.. If you don't, the submersion in salt water WILL come back to haunt you..
