Thank you for the info. How do I do this? Charger arrived today and all systems go so far. I must have overlooked the step you are referring to.

Oh are you referring to the permanent blue/white wire connection? I did that per the advice and photos through modifying the 6 pin plug. Let me know please. Thank you.

I have no blue or white wire on the OBC. I can do the #10 black wire reroute but, I'm not sure if I need to do anything else. Like maybe the yellow wire. 2001 DS 48v.

I assume you have a Series cart then, and if so, take the "Yellow" wire that is on the solenoid and run it over the B- on your controller. Your negative was coming from your OBC, but you will now get it from the controller.

A couple of questions. Do I remove the yellow wire at the solenoid or jump from there to B-? Do I still move the black #10 wire to negative pack?

I tried moving the yellow wire to the B- and it charged for about 4 minutes and then shut off. Cart would not run.

I then hooked the yellow wire back to the solenoid and jumped from solenoid to B-. Batteries charged for 4 minutes and shut off. Cart would again run.

I have not done anything with the #10 black wire yet.

If I have indeed bypassed the OBC would the charger shutting down be a charger problem?

I'm sorry to be such a bother but, this place is pure gold for information and I hope to return the favors soon.

Man don't worry about that. Let me restate it a little better for you.

1- 10g black wire needs to be ran from the back of the charge receptacle to the main pack negative. (This wire use to go into the harness and back to the OBC)

2- If you are using your Power Drive charger as an interim, you also need to take the gray sense wire from the back of the charge receptacle and also run it to the main pack negative. (If you are going with an after market smart charger, the gray wire is not needed (you can just roll it up and ty-wrap it) unless you have a DPI charger and then it can be used to disable the cart from moving while charging.

3- Take the yellow wire that is hooked to the small post on the solenoid and "used" to go to the OBC, now needs to run over to the B- on the controller. So the yellow wire will now be connected between the solenoid small post and the B- at the controller.

Ok I can do all of this. I am wondering about the charging plug tho. Now I will have only one wire coming from the plug, the red one. There is a black jumper on the back and the grey wire for disabling.

Lets hope not....

Lets talk this out a little more.... We made a 10g jumper from the back of the receptacle down to the Main Pack Neg. You came off the same post as the existing 10g wire that use to run into the OBC harness. So in reality, what you did was take the negative pin from the receptacle and it now goes to the Main Pack Neg just as the positive pin from the receptacle goes to the Main Pack Pos; so now for charging purposes, the circuit is completed by a connection at the Main Pack Pos & Main Pack Neg terminals....

Cart batteries are charging up a storm now. Charger kicked off like its supposed to. Thanks for the help. BUT, the cart wont run unless I plug the yellow wire back into the solenoid. Something else I am missing?
