Default Microswitch

When I hook up the wires to the microswitch on the v-glide the switch blows out? It is a 94 club car 36volt contoller model. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

Welcome to BGW ron


Your going to have to get a diagram and do some checking. You will need a volt meter etc. Theres no telling what is mis-wired or shorted.

On a 94 you have 3 micros at the F&R. 2 are on a positive circuit and 1 is a negative circuit...... if you get those leads switched you will have just what you explained. Check this?

I'm struggling with a used 94 CarryAll I purchased. Been reading all I can in the forums. Worked all day yesterday, checking connects, testing the motor...solenoid...

Finally got it running at the end of the day...but didn't really know why.

Wouldn't run this morning at first, but after checking the F/R switch with a voltmeter..it started.

Turned it off....then tried it again and it wouldn't run. Then I jiggled the connects to the V-drive ..nothing....so I moved the black and white wires to the v-drive nothing. Then when I moved the ble and green wires, I heard a click and the cart started running.

I'm guessing I need to replace that micro switch. I cleaned the v-drive yetserday, and cleaned all the wire connectors....but I didn't take the micro out to check it.

Am I on the right track...or could it be something else?

A microswitch will fry like a fuse if there is a short. But if they fail from wear they are usually intermittent for awhile, then fail .... typically

Thanks. I printed a lot of your postings to help me yesterday.

The cart had come from FL, so I was concerned about corrosion...the wire connections at the v-drive had some.

I'll just replace the micro.

LOL........ A repair manual of my posts That sounds scarry
Remember the rest of the micros are the same age and numbers of clicks..... Cheap as they are .... wouldn't hurt to replace them all & put the mocro switch problems behind you

After a long afternoon with some refreshments and a meter, I discovered that the resitor or the diode was wired backwards. I don't know which one realy I just kept checking until I got 36v to positive with the top wire on the microswitch in the v-glide. It was reading 36volts to negative. Hope this makes sense, This was all due to a solenoid change and I did not pay attention to the way it was wired in the first place. I am new at this stuff and learning, but We are back in the mud now.

Thanks for all of your replys.

Yep you are right about the diode and it will do that on other cars as well.
