Default Re: 95' Club Car Potentiometer Problem

Your probably explaining it right I'm just not so savvy with golf cart lingo.

So when i put each of the prongs from the volt meter onto the controller terminals its reads 50v.... When depressing the accelerator it still reads 50v.

Not suppose to do that?

One point to know. Never use the frame as a ground on electric carts. All neg. wires go to battery pack neg. in one form or the other.

Disregard my answer I thought you were talking about the solenoid again.

Did you ever get your original problem with the microswitch taken care of?

Only thing that iv done is removed the old potentiometer and replaced it with the MCOR4... cart worked fine until the Poteniometer box broke, replaced it with MCOR4 and nothing.... Not sure what to do.

Not sure if anybody else is going to be able to help either. If all you can tell us about your problem is that "it's broke" it will be hard to diagnose w/o seeing it. So think of anything that seems out of the ordinary like wire dangling, any sparks while putting it together etc.

Check the controller has all of the signals it needs to work:

With the key switch ON and the FNR in Forward and the rear wheels off the ground.
Terminal #1 (Red wire) Should get +48v (approx) when pedal is pressed.
Terminal #2 (Green wire) Should get +5v (approx) when pedal is pressed.
Terminal #3 (Yellow wire) Should vary from 0v to 5v (approx) when pedal is slowly pressed all the way down.

Sorry, think i misunderstood what you said about the original problem with microswitch. I thought you were referring to the one inside the old POTBOX housing, I did completely remove the old potentiometer "potbox" that had the microswitch in it. Where you talking about a diff microswitch?

Thanks Sergio, I will check the controller with the info you provided.

Terminal 1 (Red Wire) showed 49v pedal pressed
Terminal 2 (green wire) showed 0 pedal pressed
Terminal 3 (yellow wire) showed 0 pedal pressed.



Also, forgot to mention a while back before I put the MCOR4 in, i tried to replace the micro-switch inside potentiometer-box, but when i wired the batteries back together I did it backwards, and a little smoke came from somewhere.
