In several cases after the OBC wouldnt allow charger relay to click in I reset and got charger working again. The OBC is a needed part connected to Club Car carts to control function of off board Club Car chargers. If you are using another brand of charger with timer or built in control you dont need an OBC and many are disconnected.
