Electrical parts are picky, so electrical parts suppliers are often cranky...

Club car pretty much offers no warranty for its parts if a dealer doesn't install them. That leaves it up to a dealer to decide how to handle that. You altered the part, which shouldn't of hurt it, but you gave them grounds to reject a warranty issue. I have successfully shoved 4ga wires through those things a bunch of times.

On a side note: For future reference, you can run a separate 4GA wire around the computer and leave the 6GA intact, and it will operate perfectly. This will prevent any possible damage due to that wire.

I agree 100% on with the idea of NOT DRILLING the OBC myself but neighbor was doing all work himself and so he ruined the original part? Some of the 4 guage wiring available has a thinner covering and so no need to drill as long as the terminal is not installed until later.
As I stated before here in my area the people are all over 60 and must save as much as possible with the LOSE of retirment funds going on in the USA today.
As a after thought I told him that he could have left the original 6 guage wire in place and ADD the new 4 guage wire around OBC. He was going by instructions recieved with new cables and it looked like a good set as they left OBC cable end off to make installation easier.
As a retired auto mechanic I know that in many cases electrical parts are not warenteed when installed by NOVICE and can not be returned even if defective?? With all the ( Chinese knock off parts ) flooding the market its a bad situation for dealers as well as owners to take up the slack in sub standard parts available even from reputable dealers. I had to replace 4 solenoids before finding one that worked and at that I doubt the life will be very long? When purchased from cart dealer, I found NO NAME, NO PART NUMBER, NO PLACE OF MANUFACTURING, on box or part itself and the price was not any less than original equipment? I always understood that anything shipped into USA MUST HAVE manufactures name and where built plainly shown on part? Has this gone by the way like most of our protection rights in the wave of GREED?

Unfortunately a lot of parts don't have that info, and they should....... Greed always wins the battles.

It's all a greed situation, I would ask the dealer to see if you replaced the wire with the original 6 ga if he would try to get a warranty claim on it, if it works, great! If it doesn't work you will know he at least tried for you. Win, win for him. If he is an authorized club car dealer you can always make a complaint with Club Car, but remember the greed winning thing.

Good luck!

p.s.-- i live in florida, i Know about retirement funds being dwindled. It's horrible for someone that worked their whole life to lose it due to a bunch of corruption and greed.

I just saw a internet sales company ( UNNAMED ) that lists # 586 White Rodgers BRAND NAMED solenoids that have on the plate MADE IN CHINA on them in photo? In the price list they show made in USA and NON MADE IN USA with only about $3-$6 price difference?? At least they admit that the parts are cheaper. Im well aware of the fact that nearly everything is made out side of the USA, or at least componants of an assembly.
I live about 10 miles from the ( Fair Trade bridge into Mexico ) and see all the AMERICAN COMPANYS trucks strung out for miles hauling American ( MADE ) goods in from Mexico. Funny that they ship them (TO) Mexico before bringing them ( BACK ) into USA for sale?? The Rail Road line from Mexico comes nearby also and I see train loads of GM, Chrysler, Ford cars and trucks and farm equipment with American emblems on them. What a laugh.

MADE IN USA HAS GONE DOWN THE DRAIN LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE?
IT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING GOOD ANYMORE BECAUSE ITS A LIE?
