I have attached the pics of the old wires and fuse (i took it all apart and cleaned it the best I could)...

I have never changed the fuse and did some searching on the forums and found that my 2000.5 club car ds 36v has an 80 amp fuse, so I bought one at Auto zone...

My plan is to fix the new fuse to the top of the receptacle and wire it from there (a 10 g wire from the positive on the receptacle to one end of the fuse then another from there to the #1 battery positive post...another 10 g wire will go from the negative on the receptacle to the #6 battery negative post).

Hope these pics help...if anyone has any input on if this fuse is good and my plan is ok please let me know.

Thanks
If you plan on bolt those tabs to that piece of metal like you show in pic #6, you'll create a short. Those tabs are the conductors for the fuse as well as the mounting points.

So I first tried to hook the system up going through the old fuse...plugged in the charger and nothing...
Then I wired it directly from the positives and negatives to the #1 battery positive and #6 battery negative and the charger came on instantly which was good...
BUT the amperage on the charger went up into the 20-25 range (seems to be higher than I remember it doing previously) and then bounced back to around 15 and the needle was bouncing around alot...so I unplugged it...think I am close but this seemed to be kind of weird to me...
Any thoughts?

Did it ever charge with the new system but with the old fuse? Sounds like an "almost good" connection in the battery loop.

Before I did the solid state conversion the charger functioned perfectly. I have not used the charger in a while (I kept the batteries charged with another charger). This was the first time I tried it with the new system. When I tested the cart my volt meter read 38.1 at rest. Think I just need a new fuse in the loop?

Since you connected the charger directly to the pack (in affect by-passing the fuses), I'd check pack daisy chain for something that wasn't "clean, bright and tight" or a turned around battery.

That charger wire fuse was only used in carts that are not disabled when the charger is plugged to the cart.

If You were to drive OFF while the charger is still plugged, you could rip off the plug and cause the wires to short.

If You loop the charger cord through the steering wheel, You don't need the fuse.

The charger itself already has a fuse to protect against a charger failure.

Gee, I didn't know we had the option to omit a safety feature the manufacturer designed into the cart. I can tear out that **** reverse buzzer now.
