Scottyb,,,, If the OBC is bad, would it be possible for that to cause the arc when the ground cable is removed?

The thing with the hole and the Battery cable going through it IS the OBC

I went back and read the entire thread .
So lets get to the Basics

1. What type of charger do you have , we are assuming it is the Club Car charger which is designed to work with the OBC (which other charger may not)
2. Charging your Batteries for days at 5 Amp will ruin the Batteries so STOP charging until we get the problem
Fixed.

The charger is the Club Car Power Drive. Why would they route the ground cable through the OBC?

So OBC ( On Board Computer ), turns your low Battery light on the dash ON, and tell the charger what the state of the batteries is so it will knoe when they are finished charging.
So the cable is actually sending voltage information to a coil inside the OBC. try this , reset OBC


Resetting the OBC
To reset the OBC the following must be done in this
order:
If no Tow/Run Switch then skip that step

Key Switch to Off
Forward/Reverse to Neutral
Tow/Run Switch to Tow
Disconnect the Battery NEGATIVE () wire from the Battery Minus terminal on the battery pack.
Put the Tow/Run to Run
Forward/Reverse Switch to Reverse
Key Switch to On
Lock the throttle pedal down
The reverse buzzer will sound and go off in about 30 seconds. Leave the cart like that for 5 min to cause the OBC to reset.

To reconnect the OBC back into the system:
Key Switch to Off
Forward/Reverse Switch to Neutral
Tow/Run switch to Tow
Reconnect the Batt wire to the battery minus terminal on the battery pack.

Once the OBC has been reset, the cart can be troubleshot. There is always a chance the OBC has completely failed and the reset process will not fix the
problem. Consult your Club Car manuals or contact Alltrax for more troubleshooting of vehicles with an OBC.

Well, Guys, I followed the OBC reset procedure (4 times as a matter of fact). The buzzer would not sound off while following the steps. After reconnecting the ground wire to the battery pack, buzzer works fine. The arc, that I was getting previously, is GONE! THANKS A BUNCH!!!! BUT, the charger continues to charge down to about 5 amps and remains there. MAYBE the charger has a flaw?
