Default Re: Club Car IQ solenoid always engaged

If it was unplugged, then it is not the problem.

While You have the 6-pin connector unplugged:

Make sure the FNR is in neutral.

Measure the Red wire to pack negative, You should have +48v.

Measure the White wire to pack negative, You should have +48v.

Measure the Yellow wire to pack negative, You should have +48v when the pedal is pressed.

This will test several components, fuses and switches.

Correct, I forgot to say Key On for that test.

That signal comes from the MCOR microswitch, it should have been +48v once You press the pedal (not just with key on).

With Key On , cart on Forward and rear wheels raised.

Measure from Pack Positive to Blue/White wire on small solenoid post.
With Pedal UP = 0v
With Pedal pressed after micro switch closes = +48v

Yes, the 42 volts was after the microswitch on the mcor closed. There was 0 volts until I turned on the key and pressed the gas.

I'll do the other tests tomorrow and post results. I really appreciate the help.

I just noticed I gave You the wrong link for your cart wiring (although very similar).

This is the DS IQ diagram:
http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/attac...ds_iq_mcor.jpg

That +42v reading would indicate a problem with either the Key Switch or the MCOR micro switch having an excessive voltage drop.

You can isolate the problem by measuring the voltage from Pack Negative to the Light Blue wire at the small Solenoid post.

With the Key switch ON.

If You get +48v (pack voltage), the issue is the MCOR switch.

If You also get +42v there, then the issue is the key switch.

Please note the test in previous post for the solenoid activation circuit is to be performed from Pack Positive and with the OBC Red-to-Blue jumper in place.

I came out to check those things and my charger is still running on 8 amps. It never runs that long. I checked the pack voltage with the charger still connected and it was 60.5.

I did the solenoid activation test you said to and I have pack voltage from the pack positive to the blue/white solenoid wire without pushing the gas. Also, from the pack negative to the light blue wire I only have 30 volts.
