Default Re: Help with my dads cart

Current update. Dad hasnt been able to find a short anywhere. He put in a new 15A fuse, turned on the key and everything was stable (no blown fuse). He realized he still had the cart in "tow". He left the key in the "on" position and flipped to toggle from "tow" to "run" and the 15A fuse popped. He is about to loose his mind.......

What shouldn't be happening IS so that short or grounding issue can be anywhere. There might be a common denominator that has been happening with IQ or Precedent models that other members might suggest but if not I would first look for NON-CC wiring issues that might be causing this like aftermarket lighting, brake lights, horn, radio, etc. then:

Following diagram these are fed by that 15 amp fuse

9 Pin connector in dash
Controller
F/R switch
Solenoid

Have they been disconnected then tested with key on and tow/run in run?

Thanks Shadowman, I'll keep this in mind as I start tracing wiring.

To not keep this thread open, I just wanted to let everyone know that Dad and I traced out each wire and could not find any obvious issues with his cart. So, he is going to break down and take it to a professional. Thanks for everyones help in this matter.

Well good luck and PLEASE let us know what they found... just incase someone else has the same issue down the road! Alot of those wire leads ended up in the controller so it could be expensive!

Good luck again

Well Dad got his cart back from the shop and all is well. The issue was the "pre-charge resistor" in the yellow wire at the solenoid had gone bad and was causing the fuse to pop. They put a new resistor in and all is well. Thanks again for everyone's help and patience.

Thanks for the feedback on the problem and I'll be keeping it in the storage banks of what brain I have left for down the road. What's funny is that we were looking right at it in your dads first picture! I hope he is good to go for a very long time!
