Default Re: No power at key after dumb (STUPID!) mistake

I'll have to verify the serial this evening but I'm pretty sure the serial is correct. I bought the cart used a couple of years ago from a large local dealer who sold it to me as being "factory converted" from 4/12 to 6/8. Would the that cause the variance? With certainty the computer is located on the rear wall of the battery well.

Sergio ..... And THANKS!!! I sure hope that fuse is blown. I will gladly pull the batteries if that' all that is wrong. I'll probably relocate the fuse to make it easily accessible while I'm at it. Your picture is fantastic .... Even a dumb old electrician like me can find now. :)

Can you tell me what the blue wire (16V) is supplying power to on a stock cart? I ask because I am putting a switch on my 48/12 converter to avoid the constant drain when I don't need it. I don't want having to turn that switch on just to drive the cart to complicate normal operations for others during typical use.

The first 2 digits after PQ in the S/N are the year on manufacturer, there is no way it is 60...

If Your module is on the back, the picture I posted is the correct one.

That picture was taken with the 2 middle batteries OFF and the heat-sink folded into the battery compartment.

Look at the picture for the shape and location of the black fuse holder, You may be able to get to it from underneath the cart without removing the batteries.

Disconnect the battery cable in either case so You don't accidentally short anything.

We crossed posts...

That Blue wire connection to 12v or 16v is in case You don't have a DC converter, not a good idea unless You seldom use it or the batteries will get out of balance.

It was probably used for lights, You should be able to move it to the output of Your 12v Dc converter.

There is nothing on the cart that needs 12v to operate, only add-on accessories use 12v.


Here is the wiring diagram for the 2008.5 - 2009 Precedent:

A couple of extra thoughts. If you move that blue wire over to the 12v converter output you also need to remove the 16 to 12v converter. It's up under the front of the cart. It is nothing more than a big resistor. Second if your cart was factory rebuilt they would have changed the serial number. It would start with a 2P or 3P instead of PQ.

It was the fuse you indicated in the exact location.... Hallelujah!!

Instead of applying power from my converter directly to the blue wire, I removed it and taped it up and then removed the 12v (actually 16V) line side wire from the headlight switch and I applied 12V from my converter to that post on the switch. The headlights work great, but no tail lights ..... of course I discovered that after I had everything buttoned back up. Oh well, add that as one more thing I've done wrong today. I'll get this fixed soon enough.

THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!!
