Default Club Car IQ Rebuild ~ Courtesy of IKE

I recently picked up a Club Car IQ (from a friend) which was flooded during Hurricane Ike. I decided to take on the challenge of bringing this cart back to an operational state.

Cart Information
Year: 2005 (I believe)
Model: Club Car IQ 48v
Motor: 3.2 hp
Accessories: Lifted, After Market Tires/Wheels, Fold down Rear Seat/bed, 2 week old batteries...

The known facts before picking the cart up...it was Flooded (by Saltwater), Depth was unknown, No other physical damage.

At first glance the cart looked as if there was no damage done to it what so ever. It was only until I started breaking it down before the real challenges presented themselves. Attached are a few pictures "apparent" tests I face...

The main question is...Do you think this motor is salvageable! jk

Any suggestions, comments, hints, lessons learned, etc…would greatly be appreciated at this point!

I will try to post some updates when available.

Send that motor to PQ. They can rework it for you.

If the seals in the rearend were good it should be ok. The contoller looks like its toast and the solenoid is most likely shot too.

You most likely have a full electrical rebuilt on your hands.

Since finding my cart in the woods I have completely replaced and upgraded all the electical stuff in my cart. Including the original cart wiring. Now I know that what I have is done the way I like it.....Right.
Good luck and have fun with the build.

Chevy...Thanks for the heads up.

I went ahead and bought a 9 hp (high speed) motor for my rebuild. It states it will reach a speed of 24 mph.



I managed to find a used Curtis 250amp Motor Controller, which was taken off another IQ cart...due to a customer upgrade. I managed to get a pretty good deal on the controller, so I will run it with the new motor until I can afford to upgrade it (for more torque). I will try to find a local Club Car deal and pay them to raise the speed.

I currently have all electrical items off the cart and will be replacing them with new or gently used parts. I have upgraded to 4 gauge (600v) welding wire. I think my biggest challenge will be with the existing wiring harness. It’s kind of a pain trying to find some of the pins and pin connectors.

Since it basically everything is off the cart...I am currently spraying the entire frame with a 3M rubberized undercoating material. This should help with the salt elements the cart will face on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Your only salvation will be to replace everything electrical. If not you will have problems creeping up forever.. Salt water will wick it's way up every wire and terminal, then comes corrosion and head aches yu will not believe..
GOOD Luck
