Post bypass of obc

I have seen several posts suggesting to ground the yellow wire connector
from the power source (yellow wire) at solenoid, to ground connection at
# 6 battery ground in order to by-pass obc for test purpose.

My question-why would you ground what is suppose to be a 48 volt connection for the solenoid ? How will this by-pass the obc and not create more
electrical grimlins????? Thank you--Matt

p.s.--1989-48 volt club car

OBC bypass & Test = --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The black wire coming out of charge recepticle has a yellow fuse holder, open it up and connect a jumper from the end coming out of recepticle to the negative on Battery 6 or the last one in series. Plug in the charger if it comes on your OBC is most likely TOAST.

Hope this helps

Question Re: bypass of obc/no volatge

Scottyb-when does the 28 volt power come from for the yellow wire at
the solenoid (also connects to #3 post on control box)?
I have replace 2 each switches at the forward/reverse control,charged batteries & checked for full voltage & tested the specific gravity for each
individual cell.Also replaced the solenoid .I have inspected every available
connection and checked with ohm meter for complete circuits.

From what i have learned the obc is suspect--yet the only function it
is used for is to charge batteries and montor other functions not related
to starting.Any suggestions??? Thank You-Matt

I dunno? Maybe someone with more late model CC experience can answer those questions for you? Is your F&R a lever or a toggle switch? Lever is a series cart, and Toggle is the IQ

A series cart, much less complicated
What seems to be the problem?

1998-48volt club car with one solenoid.
series cart with lever type f/r control.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
ScottyB-What i want to know does the power for the yellow wire at the soleniod come from the potentommeter (speed control) through the
obc to #3 connection at the control box? Or is the entire function
controlled by the application of 48 volts across the soleniod to power up the control box.I have no power at the yellow wire to feed the solenoid
thus no power to the control box and system. Thank You-Matt
