Tell her to keep that beauty, please do not have cigarettes or open flames around flooded lead acid batteries....

Note- Seriously though, the LEL of hydrogen gas is only 4%, so it does not take much of an ignition source to make it go BOOM!

My pond? Heck I'm lucky to have a 5 gallon bucket to take fishing!

You and Sergio are the main ones teaching the rest of us about these Club Car mysteries!

I am flattered you think i am a good student!

Yes, another oversight for today. Thank you, and I did not see it while I was snapping the photo.

Well here's the one in the cart. I see a broken resistor already. And it looks much worse in person than it does in this photo.

That broken resistor (may be 2) and the salt/moisture corrosion is 100% the problem....

You can still save it, but I would replace all of those resistors due to moisture contamination and integrity concerns. They are cheap if you have a Radio Shack near by or you can just order them in strips from Mouser and throw the extras in the drawer for next time....

And that might be a wintertime project! But I think I will rebuild it.

I have been working thru the same issue on my 95 (in another thread) and Nole has been a great help. The pictures and info from both Nole, Sergio and Mooncarter have been a great help. Thank you all for your wisdom and advice. This is a great forum !

Very kind words VT, thank you for including me in that elite group.

The reality is, Sergio and Nole are the true experts. Those two and a select few others really know their stuff.

I just do what I'm told and hope to learn something in the process.

Heck. One time Nole even let me hold a flashlight so he could see better.
