In the first picture on top the Club Car V-glide throttle body. 5K-0 So you need a 5K-0 Controller to match. Now what size? At 48v, 400amps is enough to feed all but the biggest of motors. What does the manufacture reccomend for your motor?

Thanks Scotty,

So just to clarify, If I were to buy the 5K-0 Controller - New 480 AMP LogiSystems Controller. (pictured below)



Here is the link to it on ebay.

Since this controller has only 3 terminals (instead of 4) I can assume it does not have the A2 terminal. So for the wire that goes to it on my current controller I connect it directly on the A2 post on the motor.

Before I pull the trigger, Does this sound right?

Don't buy a controller just because it "looks" the same.. You never know what type of throttle it will take, what type of voltage it is etc... etc.... '

side note, not ALL club cars have 5k-0... some have 0-5k... I think that was reserved for the 36v club cars and the first year of 48v cars...

If you have an A2 connection on your current controller and your new one doesn't heres what you do.

You have a cable running from the motor's A2 to the A2 on the controller, you also have a cable going from the F/R switch to the A2 on the controller. Simply take the cable and bolt it together and tape it up or run a cable from the F/R straight to the motor's A2.

Tonight I heard from a cart guy who told me that in 93-94 CC used a 0-5k controller and then in 95 they went back to a 5-0k. Since my cart is a '93, I was told I definitely need a 0-5k controller.

Do you guys agree with this? It sure look like I have a 0-5k with the 4 posts.

Did U ever buy that Volt/Ohm meter I recommended back on the early thread.
If yes then do what scottyB described and test it ,
then you will know for 100%.
In a lot of cases you don't know what mods the Previous owner did so ....etc.

He did the test but he came up with some crazy reading and I couldn't make heads or tails of the results? Go back a page and you can see he posted it?

Default Multimeter Readings

OK, Admittedly I'm not a EE. I didn't realize the readings were crazy. They seemed good to me. So I went out and tested it again. Seemingly better results this time:

Setup:
  • Analog Meter
  • Meter at OHMS x K
  • Red lead from meter to white wire coming from the throttle
  • Black lead from meter going to the black wire coming from the throttle
  • Turned the switch on

Findings:
  1. The meter read ~0 when it was connected to the wires and no pedal applied
  2. Depressing the pedal moved the meter to 5K when fully depressed.

Can I safely conclude that the controller is 0-5K?
