you can by pass the obc

to by pass OCB
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK.…do not attempt unless you are familiar with electricity and electronics!
There are two ways to force the charger to turn on regardless of the OBC.

The first method is to disconnect the cart’s gray wire at the fuse near the charger receptacle. Then using a jumper wire, connect the receptacle side of the fused connector to the cart’s negative battery terminal. This will energize the charger’s 48V relay. If the charger doesn’t come on, it could be bad connections, wiring or charger relay.

What's the second way.... I really would like to know how to hot wire the charger itself I did try your way it didn't do any good I know I have at least 12 volts in the batteries and I know it takes at least 30 before the charger will kick on but my volt meter is down. I have a friend coming over today with his. I'm very new getting into electric carts after I know the batteries are good where do I go from there

if the frist way did not work your charger is bad



The second method is to open the charger and remove the 120V wires from the relay and jump these together. This totally bypasses the relay and the OBC wire.


(If charger comes on but the charger ammeter shows 0 amps, check the fuse at the charging receptacle under the clear plastic cover.)

Both of these methods should both be temporary measures for troubleshooting, or as an emergency method of charging the batteries when they have been discharged so far that the OBC will not charge them.

The OBC provides the optimum method of charging the cart’s batteries. If the OBC is bad, it should be replaced

You can charge your batteries with a car battery charger. If they are 6 volts do 2 at a time.
