Default Re: getting ready to start 36v to 48v conv????

In your diagram there is a foot peddle switch in the upper left ...like an ezgo, use this as the F&R micro. Hope that helps.

Also, I never connect the third wire on the PB-6. The pot does not any input. That's the way I was taught ... find the two that give 0-5k and use them for 2&3.

Ok, you lost me on the first part. The foot peddle switch would be the micro on the PB-6 or the micro on the F&R? Or would we need to add the F&R micro in the loop between the PB-6 micro and the controller?

As for the 0-5k, that should be coming off the black and white wires correct?

I am really lost on the micros!

Thanks,

Robert

Yes, verify you have 0-5k by setting the meter to 20k ohms and sweeping the throttle down...

Okay the micros are just silly safety switches....
36v positive will go to the key > the F&R micro > the PB-6 Micro > to the solenoid and controller.

That above is just one way you can do it. Only other thing you would need is a constant Negative at the other side of the solenoid activation circuit....
Is that starting to help?

Remember the micros are on/off switches ...... so key on? check. F&R in gear? check. Throttle depressed? YEP & away you go Each 'check' is a micro switch or key switch being flipped on....... this prevents accidental motion.... you have to mean it to do all those things.

Ok, that makes sense!

So with this wiring setup, I would only need the one micro on the F&R, correct?

What would I use the others for? Reverse Buzzer?

That's your call. they are all safety switches ..... I set up one for my neighbor with just a key and the PB-6 micro. So his cart is key on > push the gas the solenoid clicks and power to the controller .... if it is in gear it goes.... there are a few versions of this that will work.
I think you are getting the picture now?

Well, the wiring is done and all is working 100%. Thanks to Scottyb and everyone here on the forum!

I have not converted over to 48v just yet but will do that on Wed or Thursday. At 36v I gained a few Mph from 12 to 15 with current setup.

I ended up installing an AXE4855 with PB-6 and MZJ400 solenoid, all new 2ga wiring. Need to work on the programming and throttle response, but probably wont mess with it until I convert over to 48v.

Thanks again for all the help! I will post some pictures maybe tomorrow.

Robert

I am very new to the forum, and I recently purchased my first golf cart, and i am very ignorant in the process of a conversion. After reading alot of topics, it seems 48v is the way to go. My cart now is a 1982 36V Club Car. No batteries, no roof, no windshield, but i would love to take the fall/winter and restore this beast and convert it to 48v. Where do i need to begin?? Like I said, i am very ignorant, so simple for me!! PLEASE HELP!

82 is a little early for me, 84 and up is all I know. The theory is the same search the site with the google search engine and you will find tons of reading on 48v conversions....

I'm in the middle of the conversion and have a question. I'm getting the lever on the PB-6 over about 3/4 of the way. Since my Alltrax Controller is programmable, can I program it to max out the throttle without having to get the lever over 100% of the way?

I'm using a spring to connect my peddle lever to the PB-6.

Thanks.

You will never be satisfied with this setup. The connection needs to be solid.
