Default Charger problem?

I just bought, my first cart, a 99 48v club car with power drive charger. When I plug in charger, it runs for a few seconds, then trips breaker. I've bypassed breaker with 15 amp fuse, as shown in a post on here, & it blew. What could be the cause/solution? Appreciate any help.
Thanks

Default Re: Charger problem?

I'm assuming it's a Powerdrive model 17930 charger or a Powerdrive 2 model 22110 charger? This is almost always a problem with the rectifier or heatsink. If it's a Powerdrive 17930, part number 1015914 heatsink would be your issue. If it's a a Powerdrive 2 #22110, part number 103517601 rectifier would be your issue. I recommend changing the relay and the circuit breaker while you're in there. It won't cost you much more money to change all three pieces.

Did you get this done? My 17930 is doing the exact same thing.
I just got the cart/charger (my 1st electric), so I wasn't sure if just needed a new charger. The transformer 'looks' pretty bad. Charger has been in the weather for a while.

Most charger repair is less than 100 bucks......UNLESS, it has been left out in the rain or moisture. All bets are off then.
Transformer can loo bad, but burn spots in the wiring is bad news. Although rare to have to buy a complete new charger, left out in the rain and have a bad transformer and a new charger would be in order.
