Don't do that or your meter will not work right!

Those SOC led meters need to be connected to power at all times. The meter only resets to full once it senses charging voltage (>56v) for a period of time.

The terminal marked C is the one that controls when the LEDs are ON, just connect that wire to the BLUE wire at the key switch.

That way the meter will only light up when the key is ON.

OH BOY!! Thanks for the heads up!!!

All right from square one...

1.-A BLUE wire from the Multi-step potentiometer goes to one side of the "Key Switch"
2.- A GREEN wire comes off the other post on the switch and ends up at the onboard computer.
3.- NOTE there also is a third wire coming of the key switch it's orange/white and goes to the "Dash Light"
..So your saying insert the new cut on/off pot in in series in the blue line as it comes into the Key switch...
Correct...?

Your meter needs 3 wires to work:
The +48v terminal goes directly to the pack positive.

The - negative terminal goes directly to pack negative.

The C terminal turns the display ON/OFF and it needs to be connected togheter with the Blue wire leaving the key switch.
The Green wire at the key switch is directly connected to the pack positive and it has power all the time.

The Blue wire at the key switch only has power when the key switch is ON.

Yea Bill you had a totally different meter than I understood you to have. The meter I was talking about and showed pictures of was a 2 wire style.

Wow, this sure got away from my original question that started the thread.
I guess the question is still up in the air as far as preference to my hooking the TWO WIRE digital meters up DIRECTLY or via the key switch.
The way I read it, some say it won't last long if hooked directly and some say it works better if hooked directly. I will reiterate that I already have two analogue meters hooked up to the carts, directly. And they will stay connected. I have purchased two Chinese digital meters that are two wire. The meters are filled with glue to make them vibration and water proof.

Apparently, from what I get on here, some like to hook them up via key switch and some like to hook them up directly.

Well I've always been one who is unafraid to ask a question because I know if I want to know there have to be others looking for the answer too. So often this means a thread takes on a life of it's own. But in a place like this it just means getting more info to work with.

If you look way way back I started the digital meter in the cart thread and began using the Cheap China ones which I regretted, but I'll leave that alone and suggest going to the very last page of that thread.
Digital Voltmeter Display Installed

Mine is and has been hooked directly to the batteries WITHOUT using any switch. I like to see what the voltage is when the cart is sitting without having to turn the key on. I also like to see the voltage when the cart is charging which happens with the key off. It's been over 6 years and no hiccups... Just my 2 cents and it's strickly your call... your cart.
