Default Re: 2004 Club Car DS wont charge or move

I'm in the process of the long charge but I have a couple more questions. I bought one of those Stanley universal golf cart chargers for $100 have any of you guys had any luck with these? Also the battery light on the cart stay on all the time does this have any significance?

The on board computer OBC is on the cart to control the charger for the golf cart chargeing. The light is also controller by the OBC. I suspect the charger you have is not going to charge the batteries well enough to operate the cart.

In your prior posts you sorta gave me the impression that you thought the obc was a "glorified charger timer". Unfortunately the engineers at Club Car got overzealous in it's design and functions; and assigned it numerous tasks. Read THIS THREAD for most of the details as to what it controls. When your buddy drilled it, he altered or eliminated it's ability to perform many (or all) of those tasks...including (but not limited to) the effective functioning of the battery light. It may be signalling battery pack undercharge...or...not! The poor thing got a drill right thru the brain after all!

BTW the Stanley charger is not a good long-term charger solution - just not enough horsepower or brains to keep those big batteries healthy and avoid sulfation. But the DPI Accusense charge is a good choice since you seem to be avoiding use of the new (admittedly complex) obc, and you will still be able to keep those expensive batteries healthy with a purpose built smart charger. And as someone suggested in this thread earlier; you can sell the Powerdrive charger and recoup some of that cost.

quick question what's the box mounted to drivers side of the frame with a black wire coming from it? On this cart that wire is unhooked and I cant tell where its supposed to go.
