Did you just try and hook up 2 wires for the throttle or the 3 wires it requires?
Did you measure the 0% throttle ohms?
There is no reset on a controller.
Don't NEED a diode.
I'm going with you have the wrong wiring. What diagram did you use to wire this cart?

Default Re: Motor controller and Motor match?

I used the "89-03 36 volt electric club car wiring diagram with Solid State controller".

When I take the cable from M- and connect it to B- (effectively jumping over the motor controller) then touch the "gas" pedal, the motor, of course, jumps right into full speed (while on jack stands).

Because of this, I thought I had a burnt out motor controller so I tried another out with the same results. You made perfect sense about my having the pot switch backwards but i didn't have any success. I think the last two things left that it could be is a burnt out m/c or wrong wiring.

Thanks,
Scott

Do you have positive power to the #1 small terminal
Do you have 5k-0 ohms when measured on #2 an #3 small terminals?


Part of the problem is you have a morphadite...meaning its patched up from different models. Not that its a bad thing, it just take more time to work out the bugs. I wouldn't use that diagram, I would use a basic series diagram.

Sorry... when you say basic series diagram, do you mean one with the solenoid setup?

OK, so that tells me its either the controller or wiring. Where did you get the controller? Is it used?

YOu say you used that diagram. Did you wire out some of those components, make any modifications from the original to try and simplify it?

I mean this. Its a basic no frills schematic. Works flawless. It has a PB-6 pot box but that does not matter. The controller doesn't see any difference other than one is stepped. The throttle wiring will be different but the rest is the same. That one uses an alltrax, You would swap terminal 3 to 1 and 1-2 to 2-3.

Edit

On that model Alltrax uses terminal 3 for power, Curtis uses terminal 1. Alltrax uses 1 and 2 for throttle, Curtis uses 2 and 3.

The diagram looks to be the exact way that I have the cart wired. The only thing I'm not sure on is the F/R which could be the culprit. I'm not sure where A, B, C, and D are located on the switch. It looks like A and C or B and D are the rotating part of the switch with the other being the stationary part of the switch?

That happens more than you would think.
Looking at the back of the cart....the F/R terminal sticking out on the right, where does it go?
The bottom left?
Right side rotating puck?
Left side rotating puck?
