Default A8620 Died

Greetings,

My first problem post so don't beat me up to bad.

As part of a purchase I am now the proud owner of a V A8620 Club Car. Previous owner had it stored under a tarp on a covered patio for 2 years with sporadic use. She had 6 new batteries installed about 6 weeks ago. The first two weekends I used the cart it ran like a charm. Brakes need adjusting since she used the hill brake instead of wheel chock to keep it in place bu that is another post. Last weekend I climbed aboard turned on the key, put it in forward and got nothing but clicks. One under the pedal and one under the seat.

I have some familiarity with an 82 EZ Go I tinkered with half of last summer. When I lifted the seat I saw fewer similarities than I expected so joined this forum. With everyone's help I hope to spend more time fishing and less time cart tinkering.

thanks for any suggestions.

WFR

Look to the fireing range, turn head to left, and you will see me waving back as I drive by the lake to see the waves, or then again I will be out fishing.
You have a resistor cart, not real sure on them but scotty is. I think you may have a bad solenoid, I'm not sure beyond that. I live in the slums of Lake Erie. Jerry's should have them.

Thanks Fishing Dude, I was out on NW Reef Sunday. Brought in 12 keepers.

I was thinking it might be the master selenoid. I am also going to clean and/or replace the cables back to the selenoids. Am I crazy or is there less space to work in the CC electrical compartment than the EZ Go.

YEs I have seen many posts on here where the master solenoid is the problem. I have also seen where some have swapped out the master with another for testing to help in diagnosis..but a voltmeter would be much easier if you have one. The master solenoid is the one on the farthest left side (drivers side) good luck

Thanks ooxfordlawn, I have a voltmeter and I am sure I have seen a post on the forum on how to test them. Now the fun begins finding it.

Fishing Dude, it was the master solenoid. When I tried to remove it the large front terminal snapped off exposing the burnt plaskolite inside. I am going to take scottyb's advice in another post and replace all 5. Know of any suppliers that offer quantity discounts?


i swear everything I touch is so rusty or corroded it snaps off in my hand. ****, now I need a mirco switch and 11.5" connector bar. Even the hold down rods are half eaten away on their tops.

Oh well, I start on-call tomorrow so cannot leave Columbus for PC for two wweks. Plenty of time to order goodies and get them delivered.

For your solenoid connector bar I use a piece of 1/2" heavy wall copper tubing flattened and drilled to fit. Its heavier than stock and I have only had one case where it got hot and that was with a 2 speed motor and HD wiring along with HUGE TIRES?
Wouldnt this be a good time to switch over to a PB6 throttle control and a solid state controller and dump the resistor set up? You would have about $300-$500 in change over costs plus wiring that would be offset by cost of 5 solenoids and possibly some resistors and insulating board costs on your stock setup.
Just my .02c worth??

That is definatly something to be considered. I was just sitting here putting together a parts list so now would be the time to compare.

Thanks Old mec. I will post the comparison and let everyone know what I decide.
