Default Club Car Battery Disconnect Sequence?

I have a 2003 electric Club Car with the "Regen" feature. I want to clean and service the battery cables.

Is there a specific disconnect - reconnect sequence for the battery cables?

If so, could you please provide instructions?

Many Thanks.

Default Re: Club Car Battery Disconnect Sequence?

Put the Tow/Run switch in "Tow"

Start off with putting Baking Soda on all terminals and rinse with water

Remove the main NEGATIVE cable from the battery on the drivers side, and leave it disconnected

Remove 1 cable "end" at a time, clean, and spray with a battery terminal protectant,
Reinstall, and go to the next lug!

When all of them are done, clean and spray the Negative cable that you took off first... then reinstall

Put the Tow/Run switch to "Run"... charge the batteries, or test drive!

Lockman,

What exactly is the tow/run switch doing? Is it simply breaking a connection electrically? If so, between what?

It shuts down the solenoid and controller,

Anytime you do anything electrical, on a CC electric cart (that has a tow/run switch)
That switch should be in the "Tow" position!

If not... and you short something out, (eg. touching a wrench from the battery to the frame)

You may have to count on buying a new soleniod and/or controller!

If ya' got it... use it!
