So this would be on the controller side of the 6 pin plug, not the obc side of the plug as it will be gone? You are correct.
And when I get the Alltrax, that won't be an issue either if I understand correctly?

ok, perfect, thank you.. so yeah, it's either an OBC replacement or the Charger.. Just when I wanted to buy the alltrax instead...lol baby steps I guess. :)

so, I should let the obc work as is for the time being to let it control the charging while just using the one jumper (to grey)?

Something else I found "interesting"..(so maybe it means something is wrong?)...I jumped the relay in the charger, bypassed the obc..and I could not get the charger to work..even though it worked perfectly the day before.. After retracing my steps and going back and forth on these forums...for some reason I kicked the gas pedal to see see if that would initiate something.. The moment the brake unlocked, it started charging. Is this normal? Seems like it should maybe ONLY charge if brake is locked..

Without the OBC's ability to stop/start the charger, it is not going to charge correctly. I would fully bypass it and then replace it or get the smart charger.

I just finished converting my 2007 club car precedent from 4x12 to 6x8. I took out the obc and connected the blue and white wires, hooked the red wire from the charger to positive battery and the black wire from the charger to the negative battery. It has brand new US batteries (just put them in today )the pack reads 49.2 volts and I get over 48 volts on both sides of the solenoid and at the green and white wires that run to the motor from the controller. What should I look for?

I have a 2008 Club Car Precedent PQ08 electric golf cart and the OBC is bad and trying to decide if I should jump it or replace it. I have the OBC jumped out as well as the relay in my Power Drive 3 charger jumped out just so it will charge. However I am afraid of over charging. I just installed brand new Trojan batteries have no real way to optimize the charging cycles. Should I leave the OBC jumped and get a Club Car smart charger (ERIC) or replace the OBC? Thanks

Hello everyone!!! Iíve been through this whole thread and has great information. I do have one question regarding the bypass. I want to remove the obc completely and have a 99 ds series cart. I have already done the black wire at the charging port and yellow wire at solenoid. The wire I have in question is the red wire that goes from obc to controller. Do I just remove the terminal from the controller b+ and move on?

That red wire should be going to the Battery side of the solenoid (Unless someone rerouted it). It supplies control power to the OBC.
