Default Re: 2000 club car ds money pit help!!

Back working on the cart. I have the cart on charge and I am testing each battery while they are charging I have 5 batteries at 10 volts and one battery at 8.6 volts is it posible for one battery not getting charged? If so what do I look for

Make sure the red wire from the charger receptacle is connected to the pack positive battery post, that is the one with the cable going to the solenoid.

So now that I have my capacity problem solved let me make sure I am hearing you guys right. The solenoid that as resistor coil on it tie the to power wires together on one post on the solenoid and unplug pig tail going to motor and leave it like that for good?

Let's keep the answer in context:

If Your system is operating properly, due to the increased tire diameter (and resulting torque loss), You will likely not experience any increase in speed and You will loose Regen/Dynamic brake as well as walk-away brake.

If the system is not working properly and the Dynamic Brake solenoid does not close, the resistor will severely limit the current which will result in low torque/acceleration (and glow red).

The procedure You described is the correct one for testing the second case and it can be left permanently in place if You do not need the motor brake feature.
