Default Re: motor check

first theres a lot more to your car than a motor and a solenoid... an external motor test is a sure way to tell if the motor is bad, but it requires removing all wires from motor and that can be risky...

Before looking at your motor, verify that your v-glide (thing between the batteries on driver side) is not burnt, or the wire connected to the arm on the inside of it is not broke off (have to take two batteries out and pull safety cover off. )...

Next, make sure the 4 wires going to your f/r switch are all on properly, and that there is no signs of melting there.

Make sure your resistor assembly has no loose nuts, breaks in resistor, or burn t areas..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If nothing else proves wrong, then you can try this test, with EXTREME caution. Disconnect your main negative, and main positive battery cables..

WD-40 your motor post, and then wire brush them.

Using two wrenches; one on the nut below your cable, and one taking the top nut off; disconnect all four motor cables from motor.

Using a multimeter set to ohms do the following test

A1 to A2 should have continuity
S1 to S2 (or F1 to F2) should have continuity

A1 to motor case, should have no continuity
A2 to motor case, should have no continuity
S1 to motor case, should have no continuity
S2 to motor case, should have no continuity

If one of those values do not match, then you have a problem..
S1 or S2 without continuity is a broken field, A1 to A2 without continuity is a broken field... anything with continuity with the case is a big problem...

If all of those values do match, then you could still have a bad motor, or more specifically a totally worn set of brushes, or even a shot amature(sp?)
~~
Remember: Be careful working on that motor, its 15 years old and doesn't take kindly to rough housing :-) If your motor isn't broken and you spin those posts, it will be broken. I can't tell you how many motors I've had to repair behind people that did that.

? Not necessarily. The Club Car way is the only way to be sure.
