Default Re: New XCT400 IQ installed now battery probs?

I have a bad solenoid - sending it back to scottyb for replacement or repair.

But I was able to check speed before I removed solenoid! I'm still breaking in the new batteries too.

I was able to get 31mph!

I love the new controller really brings the Precedent to life!

Once I get the new solenoid back I will post some updates if you want.

It has a surge at half throttle - I'm hoping the solenoid will take care of it as it was acting up and not engaging after stopping. I had to tap it and then I could go again (until I stopped)

You may want to change the mounting orientation of the solenoid, most manufactures of that style solenoid specify a horizontal mounting plane.

The ones that allow it on the vertical plane (white rodgers) specify coil on the bottom.

Sergio - I didn't even think about that!
So much for my following instructions.. Great catch.

I haven't mailed it yet, as its in the box - do you think it's worth a try?

It was sticking - I had to tap it after I stopped to go again. Controller was not seeing enough volts until I would tap solenoid then it was good to go.

If you think I should try and rotate that sucker 90* I will - lemme know.

This forum never fails to impress me!

The heavy copper contacts are connected to the end of a spring loaded plunger.

The way it is mounted, the coil when energized needs to overcome the force of the spring plus the weight of the contact arm hanging upside down.

I am not sure if it would cause your problem, but It is not the specified mounting position for those type of solenoids.

Definitely mount the new one the correct way.
