I Need to Bypass OBC 48v on 95' Club

Make sure switch is off and cart is in tow , if u use scottyb's 1st example .
For jumping relay example just make sure the charger is not plugged into the wall.
Check Voltages ever 2 hours , the charger should get to 60 +- volts.
Unplug let it set for an hour, if the Voltage is above 36 Volts the OBC should allow
charger to turn on

If the batteries are real low bypassing the OBC is not going to solve your problem,you need to charge the batteries one at a time.

This is what I do 1)remove all the cables 2)make sure you have water in batteries.3) if they are 8volt you can charge with a 12 volt charger for about 20minutes or so each.You can pull the caps ooff when they are charging and if the cells are bubbling they are charging,if a cell isnt bubbling it is a bad battery.then you can hook your batteries back up with clean cables and posts and then reconnct the charger and it should work.

Exclamation Re: bypassing OBC on 2002 Club Car

Thanks For The Info. Will Probaly Try Individual Charge First To See If That Works. I Notice Some Older Post Saying You Could Not bypass The OBC On the Models With A Rocker Switch For Foward & Reverse Is This Tru?
