I bypassed my OBC due to switching to lithium. Just cut 10 gauge black wire, added a ring terminal and connected to negative battery terminal.

Why would I need the 10ga wire, if I have lithium and charge through an Anderson connector. Just need to splice white and blue wires together from 6-pin connector, right?

Then you would not. The 10g would be needed if you were using your OEM charge receptacle.

That's the route I went. The OEM plug is more sturdy than the one that came with it.

Ok, that makes sense. I charge my lithium directly through the BMS, so I won't need any of it.

If you are referring to the Yellow wire that runs back to the small post on your main contactor (solenoid), then you will not have the Negative. It is required for solenoid closure. The only other place you could run it is the Main Pack Negative. And if you have your OBC still present, it is supplying the Neg thru the Yellow wire that runs from the OBC to the solenoid.

I think I have this correct. There are a lot of different configurations being discussed on here, so I just want to make sure I am not confused.
I have a 97-99 DS series, 48 volt with a Curtis 400amp controller.
I am converting to lithium and wish to remove the OEM charging receptacle and the OBC.

Correct me if I am missing something here.
I run the black cable from the battery that goes THROUGH the OBC and run it directly to the controller?
I run the wire from the solenoid to the controller?
Then I can remove the two items? Did I miss anything?
Thank you for your patience.

I run the wire from the solenoid to the controller? Which wire are you mentioning? You referenced removing the OBC and Charge Receptacle.....
Then I can remove the two items? Did I miss anything? Double checking.....
Thank you for your patience.
Want to be sure we are on the same page....
