Default 95' Club Car Potentiometer Problem

Hello,

My 1995 club cart pot box housing suffered some damage. Still worked fine. Occasionally the twisting mechanism inside the pothook housing would pop off its correct location. When that happen I would go underneath cart and pop it back in, everything good. Most Recently one of the prongs on the microswitch inside the pot box had broken off. I replaced with a new microswitch. Suddenly cart will not move. Solenoid just clicks.

Info:
Cart is the 95' model that uses the pot box housing with microswitch, not the V-Glide.

48- Volt cart

Batteries show 48.9 across.

Solenoid shows 48.9 on both prongs when pedal is not pressed, not sure if it should be doing that.

Tested microswitch using Ohms, shows 1 when pedal is not pressed. Shows 0 when pedal is pressed.

Not sure what is going on please help.

The original CC Potentiometer is one of CC's worst ideas, and they know that. Your best bet may be converting to an MCOR

Thanks for the reply.

Someone did tell me that a while back, but I thought I could fix it. If its the better option to convert then I will do that. Could you direct me to the right place to purchase and install the MCOR kit for my cart.

Thanks

Either way, the MCOR is way better than CC's original pot box. I lucked out, since my 95 was built during the first week of production it has the V-Glide

Ya I am going to do that.

As far as my solenoid goes, should both stems be showing 48.9 volts when I'm not depressing the accelerator ?
