Default Precedent 4 ga cables

I am replaceing the stock cables on the Precedent with 4 ga.

There is a black cable that runs from the negative of the last battery
(-48 v.), thru the current sensing device (not sure what it's called) and then to the controller.

The new cables have the all lugs attached, and I cannot get it thru the small hole in the current sensor.

Does the sensor come apart someway so I can get the new wire thru it, or do I cut the new lug off, pass thru the sensor and reattach a new lug?

Thanks for your help, Dave

The best way is to get the cable through there is to cut off the lug and attach a new one once you have the cable through. I wouldn't take the other parts apart because they may not go back together quite right.

I cut off the connector, passed wire thru the current sensor, crimped (AND SOLDERED) the new ring terminal on.

It looks to me that the current sensor will only allow a 4 gauge wire dia. wire to pass thru it.

Has anybody used 2 ga. on a Precedent - and what did you do about getting the wire thru the sensor?

Thoughts please.

Have fun ! Dave

Yep there is a High quality 2 gage flexible wire which when creased will go through.
Someone posted a the web page on here in the past 3 weeks ,

Any Help out there ?

If this is easier...it is OK to leave the stock wire going thru the OBC hole and run an oversized 2 ga. cable around the OBC...you know 2 wires going to and from the same place. This way the OBC can read the voltage using small wire, and the motor can suck amps thru the larger cable as needed. Just make sure your stacked connections are clean and tight..my thoughts would be the 2 ga. cable on the bottom and sitting directly on the battery terminal post, with the 6 ga. on top of that.
But thats just my thoughts

Hello,

I am pretty sure your cart (all Precedents) have the IQ OBC. To provide the computer all the info it needs to do all it can for you, a by-pass cable will not do it. The "sensor collects" amount of current flowing during charging. That info is stored and can be read to tell you things like average charge rate, %s of discharges, how long it's been since last charge, how long since batteries were equalized, when to send charger into equalize mode based on time/charges since last equalization (if you ues charger designed and built for CC), etc., etc. Yes, it is a sensor, and keeps memories saved but it does a lot more. (Not to be compared to a OBC on non-IQ OBC.) So, if you take your cart to a dealer for sevice he has all that info, + more, at his finger tips. (yours too if you purchase the handheld and learn how to use the darn thing)

I would find that "super-dooper" 2 guage cable and use it, or just use 4 guage for going through the OBC. The difference in loss in that one length is negligable unless you are thinking of going to very high voltage. Then I doubt if you would use the CC IQ OBC at all.

---just my 2 cents worth---

I know many that don't agree with my opinion on the subject of the IQ, charging, etc. Sometimes I am sure I come across as a "know it all" (which I do - HA!, NOT), but for sure I don't! Early-on I just fought my way through many issues caused by me and my lack of understanding of the IQ. I blamed most of them on the IQ. Guess I am feeling guilty about that.(?) I haven't experienced any additional trouble regarding the IQ since I realized that it is smarter than me. Perhaps I am just lucky now. I'll leave it alone if it will leave me alone.
