Default Re: ?correct charger OBC, or no OBC

I just went to see if it would go while on the charger, it won't.

So I guess the OBC is mostly ok except for having to bypass to the solenoid. Could this actually be a problem in the controller rather than the obc?

The speed controller sends a neg (ground) to the solenoid fed from pin 12 (blue/white wire) but the controller must first sense a +48V at pin 10 (tan wire) fed from the key switch and +48V at pin 6 (green wire) fed from the limit switch on the accelerator pedal.

Good luck

Pin 12 blue/white
Pin 10 tan
Pin 6 is not grn but purple/white
Pin 3 is green and appears to come from MCOR

The tan and green both read 48 when pedal is depressed
but nothing on the blue/white grnd

The connections on the plug look fine. You are counting from the wrong end of the plug. The white wire is in pin one which makes the green in six and so on.

You should have +48V on the tan you turn your key on and +48V on green after you press the accelerator.

You need to put you measuring meter pos lead on battery pos and neg lead on Blue/White pin 12 with the controller plug plugged in. You will have to use a sharp point on your measuring probe to pierce the insulation. When you press the accelerator the voltage should change from approx 48V to zero.

Good luck.

The blue/white is the wire that goes to the neg side of the solenoid, I have zero on it

If you had zero (or ground) on the neg side of the solenoid and the key switch is on with the tow/run switch in run then the solenoid should be enrgized but I assume that it is not.

Between what two points are you measuring zero? The blue/white and?

Does the buggy run when you bypass and energize the solenoid and press the accelerator?

Pos batt terminal and blue/white.

Yes it runs but only 9mph, it used to run 16mph and is supposed to run 19mph (prior to increasing tire size).

I don't know if you saw my other thread but I accidentally shorted the two small terminals on the solenoid and since then I have had this problem. Actually it didn't run at all even when I bypassed to the solenoid. Then all of a sudden it started running.?

I'll check your other thread. Sounds like you killed the electronic switch in the controller when you shorted the solenoid. The electronic switch will send a ground to the solenoid when you press the accelerator. There is a way of changing the top speed but i think you need a
iQ display module (IQDM).

I recommend that you buy yourself a maintenance service supplement Manual number 102318806 Edition code 1202D0707B.

Cost me about $100 in Aus but you should pick it up for $30 - 50.

Money well spent.

Is this switch something I can replace?
The controller is supposed to have the 4th setting in it.

I was going to get the supplement but if I wind up changing controllers I don't know that it would do me any good. (If I change I will get a much higher amperage)
I'd just as soon rather get the original working right.

I have had the cover of my controller off and it's full of electronics. If you are skilled enough or know someone that is, it would be possible to check or repair the switch.

Even if you end up changing your controller for a larger unit it still would be handy to have the manual. The wirring is unlikely to change.
