Default Re: can i make a resistor coil for an old ds?

ill have to check mine but way higher than that....charge it then do a load test on each battery....a 36 volt cart is DEAD at 36 volts ....39 volts after a charge and 12 hour rest I believe....battery problem all along I'm thinking...

I'm not a resistor cart man, but what you are saying sounds to me like you are not getting good current flow in your first one to three pads in your v glide. Maybe cables have internal resistance.

That's what I was thinking last nite , vglide or cable ...but he HAS to get the voltage up there first ...could swap some cables to test that but need to start off with a full charge I'm thinking...

i am charging it to nite. i will let it sit tomorrow, then will load test the batteries. i have a 36 volt discharge machine, that i can use. These are trojan batteries, about 3 months old, not one round of golf on them yet!

Also, i have changed all wires except the 6 vglide wires.

I am thinking it may be the motor, its a rebuilt upgraded one. At 34 volts, it hauls ***.

I will report back tomorrow with readings. Thank you guys

Ok, I charged all nite, After rest volts are 39.4.

Took test drive, pretty much all is the same. The highest voltage i get when floored is 35.2 volts.

I did replace the blue vglide wire, as someone suggested, no difference.

So I pulled the motor and sent it in to the place that rebuilt it. I am thinking maybe something in the new motor is causing all this heat, and this voltage drain.

After test driving for awhile, , the cart is at 37.6 volts.

I wish you had a factory motor to use. That system is built for golf and golf only. It's designed to meet the requirements for the amp draw of the factory motor. If the motor you're running is pulling more amps than the factory motor, the rest of the system may be inadequate.

crap. When i first came across this cart, there was supposedly a bigger motor in it. The old guy is the original owner, of this 93 cart. He had this motor in there for a few years, with no problem.

Originally one of the wires came loose, was arcing, and welded itself to the motor wire stud. So i sent that motor in to be rebuilt.

So the new motor that has been in there for about a year now, is the one in question here. Through all the removing and reinstalling of the batteries, vglide, all wires etc, i noticed the A1 motor terminal was not as tight ( on the motor), as the other 3. You could wiggle that post, very slightly.

That is why i pulled the motor and sent it back in yesterday, for them to check out.

I was hoping, that this wiggle could be the source of my heat and the voltage starving??
