Default 1992 36V CC melted V Glide

V glide melted on my cart which caused it obviously to not go. Ideas on not melting new one? Low voltage is the culprit I am told and typically in the batteries, however all batteries load test at 6.4 volts and are less than a year old. Battery cables maybe?? Thanks!!

Make sure all cables are in good shape. No corrosion, no crunchy wires, and make sure the terminals are shiny and not rusty. This goes for the entire system, not just the connectors on the V-glide. And I can't stress this enough, do NOT buy an aftermarket V-glide or you'll be buying another one soon.

Big tires?

My info tells me 6.4v is 100% for a 6v battery so must not be much of a load test, it's not even taking the fluff off the charge?

Lets get a pack reading when the cart is charging uphill. That's a load test and I'll bet it's not going to read 38.4

If You still have that extra solenoid your neighbor gave You (other thread you have), You can by-pass the VGlide entirely at full throttle so no current will flow through it:

- There's minimal rust I noticed today on motor connections but I'll clean that up. I did buy a cheap V glide off Amazon so yea prolly got what I paid for. V glide side all connections were clean. Should I look into new battery cables, they too are a year old and free of corrosion but something cheap I bought on Amazon.

- Tires are stock. Not sure I follow "charging uphill"? I mean I hooked up load tester pressed button for 10 seconds as it says 6.4 was the read out, but needless to say the batteries aren't my issue.

- V glide did seem to melt at WOT range so I like the idea of bypassing, yes I still have the extra might be the way to go.

Problem is the- cheap V glide. Pure garbage.
Sounds like you have a pretty stock cart. Good V glide should work in it

Charging uphill is the act of going forward up a hill with vigor. That my friend will put a load on a cart.
A load test that does not draw the batteries down one bit is no load at all.
Clearly you do not understand the importance of a proper load.
An automotive type load tester is not going to test a golf cart battery because it draws 50 amps and a golf cart draws hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of amps.

Agreed, lesson learned. Going to local shop today to buy new, then I need to find a hill to vigorously climb.

New V installed and cart still no go. I understand there's not many parts to this thing and the only things I haven't checked would be motor and FnR switch. Thoughts?

Does the solenoid click when you try to go?
If no (as I suspect) there are 2 micro switches involved... one on the F&R and one in the V glide. Check them both with a meter.
