I think you're right kernal. I've been pretty much all over the thing, I havent come across any electronics. It's an 01 series cart with the V-Glide etc. Thanks for the info.

No, No the OBC controls the CC charger. The charger is not mounted on the cart. It is a separate unit.

My charger is a seperate unit. So is the OBC something I need to be concerned with if I go to larger #2 cables? What does it actually do?

I appreciate the feedback. I'm comfortable working on the cart, I just don't know every detail about the thing....Yet

I bought the cable 35 ft , solder slugs , 5/16 Lugs , and shrink tube for under a $100.00. I had to make my own (2)1/8 hole lugs for the f/r switch because I could not find them at the time

if you remove the back cover behind the seat backs you can find the OBC if you look to your left attached to the firewall. it is a thin yellowish rectangle with a negative cable running though it . this is what tells with your charger to turn on and off .

the 2ga cable will not fit though the hole . Scottyb at carts unlimited sells a bolt kit (or make your own) for this so you can attach 2ga on both sides of the obc

His cart is being converted from 36 to 48v (see original post). His cart never had an OBC - it was born without one. If he hasn't already, he'll need to purchase a smart charger (with crows-foot connector) to charge; when the 48v conversion is complete.

I'm close to a Grainger. Which of these would be the best choice?

I've never built my own (come to think of it, mine are more than 5 years old - guess I should be adding a new set to my "budget" one of these days) - but those who have done series carts generally seem to favor welding cable because of the higher copper strand -count and flexibility.

I do have a fairly new Lestronic charger. So I'm good then, I don't need to worry about the OBC?

It looks like the welding cable has more capacity.

You can't worry about something you don't have!
