So you left the resistor out of the loop and left the pig tail unplugged at the motor?

Yes, you will loose the small benefit of energy going back into the battery pack when breaking as long as the voltage of the battery pack is at point lower than fully charged. I plan on removing the DB solenoid entirely. Unfortunately my stock motor locked up and I'm in the process of replacing it. I feel your pain and totally understand the "money pit" description.

Well guys lol. I think I may have found a problem . My Charger is 36 VOLTS!!! I don't understand cause when I checked the voltage while the cart is charging it is reading 54 volts? So I have a useless 36 volt dpi charger I am looking around for the best deal on a 48 volt charger but from what iam reading because I have a cart with obc it must be a 48 volt 15 amp charger . Money pit keeps getting better lol

Are You sure it is a 36v charger with a round 3-pin DC plug?

I don't think it would work at all, with or without an OBC.

If You do have to buy another charger, get a smart charger that does not use the OBC.

I just googled that number and it came back as a 36v charger. What type of plug does it have?

Measure the voltage at the connector on the cart that You are plugging the charger into, that will tell us how it is wired to the pack.

You can damage your new batteries if some are not being charged.
