Default Re: Green 2001 moves but jumps

Ok went back out found it to be the starter solenoid clicking to beat hell so I bypassed it and the cart runs just fine forward and reverse. The solenoid is pulling in and dropping out over and over. I un-hooked the yellow wire then jumped the 2 battery cable wires and it ran good.

The next problem is it will not charge. It didn't come with a charger so I am using my power driver charger is that my problem?

The Powerdrive charger will charge it. Do you know if that is a known working charger?

Yes charger works used it in my 98 cart and also used my 98 charger on it and it still doesn't charge.

This is from David, the Club Car guru around here:

Charging System Troubleshooting: (Charger Won't Turn On)

1. The first step would be to make sure the vehicle has enough voltage to trigger the charger turn-on signal from the on-board computer. Check the battery voltage of the entire battery pack with a digital volt meter. Put the positive lead on the MAIN positive battery post and the negative lead on the MAIN negative battery post. Total voltage should be at least 36-38 Volts. If it's not, you must boost the batteries individually. Contact me for further instructions on how to do so. If you do not have a digital volt meter you can perform this test by attempting to run the vehicle. If the vehicle has enough energy to make the solenoid switch "click" and attempt to run, it also has enough energy to engage the charger relay. This step may be skipped.

2. The next step is to check all wiring. Locate the charger receptacle of the vehicle. On the back of the charger receptacle you will see three wires. Red is the positive. Black is the negative. Grey is the On-Board computer control wire. Make sure that the red wire is in good shape and follow it all the way to the MAIN positive battery post. Make sure there is a good connection on the battery and ensure that the wire isn't corroded or broken. If it is, clean it and re-attempt to charge the vehicle. The black wire is not at risk of corrosion because it is wired directly into the on-board computer. As for the grey wire, give it a light pull outward and ensure that isn't broken inside the charger receptacle. The grey wire will often break inside the receptacle and will easily pull out the back. If this happens, you must replace the receptacle.

3. If you have a Club Car DS or Carryall vehicle you will have two fuses to check near the charger receptacle. One is an inline fuse located on the grey control wire mentioned in step two. It is located inside a yellow rubber fuse holder. Pull the fuse holder apart and check the fuse with your meter to ensure that there is continuity. If the fuse is bad, replace it with a 3/8 amp fuse. Anything else will damage the charging system. There is also a larger fuse bolted to the back of the charger receptacle. You'll see that there are two black wires bolted to the back of the receptacle. This is where you'll find the fuse. On the opposite side you'll see a fuse element inside a plastic window. Check this fuse with a multimeter as well. On the continuity setting, place each lead of your multimeter on each of the nuts where the black wires are bolted to the back of the receptacle. If you have continuity, the fuse is good. If you don't, replace the fuse.

4. Check the charger relay. Pull the cover off of the charger and locate the relay. On PowerDrive 17930 models you'll find the relay on the bottom floor of the charger at the front. On PowerDrive2 22110 models you'll find it bolted to the front wall of the charger above the circuit breaker. Make sure both power cords are unplugged from the charger and pull the blue wire and red wire off of the charger relay. If you look closely at the relay you'll notice that there are four posts. Two large posts, and two small posts. These red and blue wires are plugged into the smaller two posts of the relay. Once you've gotten them unplugged, set your multimeter to check for DC voltage and insert the leads of the multimeter into the ends of these two wires that you unplugged from the relay. Plug the cord into the golf cart. It is not necessary to plug the other cord into the wall. Within 2-10 seconds of plugging the cord into the cart, you should see full battery voltage on the screen of your meter. If so, this is an indication that the on-board computer is communicating with the charger and commanding the relay to turn on. If your charger hasn't been "clicking" on, replace the relay. If you don't see a change in voltage on your screen when this test is performed, this is an indication that the on-board computer has failed and is no longer able to communicate with the charger. The on-board computer must be replaced.

Default Re: Green 2001 moves but jumps

here is a thought after reading the above post and one other one I found regarding how the OBC works and what I found out on my 1998 CC. I plugged in my know working charger to the "new" 2001 and nothing so I took the charger back to my 1998 and plugged it in and nothing. at this point I got paranoid thinking I burned out the charger plugging it into the "new" 2001. I then had my son drive the 1998 around for 10 to 15 minutes and he brought it back in and the charger kicked in and started charging.

Now on my way to work this morning I was thinking since I just put in batteries and then I reset the OBC and the batteries and pack are at 51.4 vdc with maybe 2 minutes of run time on them after I jumped the starter solenoid could it be that the OBC has not saw enough drain on the batteries and enough run time to charge them since they were at full charge to begin with? Could this be my problem? I read that the OBC records run time so it knows how and when to turn on the charger?
Thanks

By the way all the above steps from jakesnake27 are ok!

Possibly. Try this. Plug the charger into the cart, WITHOUT the AC cord plugged into the wall. Does the charger click within about 5 seconds?

The charger does not click with in 5 seconds. Also tried another solenoid and the cart still hops could it be since the yellow wire from the OBC goes to the solenoid and is causing the solenoid to jump in and out?

Sounds like the OBC has bit the dust...
