Default My Icon Stumped..WHAT !!!!! 89 CC Problem

Scottyb, I dont think you are stumped, just want sure what I tried to explain...You are still my Icon and hero....

Ok all my buggys gone wild experts...Here is my problem....

I have an 1989 Club Car 36Volt....The top speed is little slower than my 84 CC...however ...TAKE OFF speed is extreamly slow...NO or Little power taking off.....Slight up hills and it crawls....Will not think about spinning a tire in gravel.....get the picture....

All new batteries.....V-glide is in great shape...All battery and V-glide cables are great shape or new....Coil pack was cleaned and some new bolts and washer/nuts replaced...great shape...motor and solnoids terminals were cleaned....In other words...Nothing wrong with battery or running system....

The cart ran the same prior to new batteries, cables and v-glide....

OK>>>>>HERE IS MY PROBLEM THAT I NEED HELP ON....

The wiring diagrams on buggysgonewild and internet show a 5 coil coil pack with 6 terminals....Mine is a 6 coil coil pack with 7 terminals....No one to include google has seen a 6 coil pack...
In order for the cart to move there (WAS) and has to be a jumper between terminals 3 and 4, as I have them marked on diagram....It will click without jumper but not move....As you can see in the diagram I have a blank terminal on the v-glide.....

I either need a diagram of how to hook up a 6 coil 7 terminal coil pack...OR..how to do away with something that is already there....The old V-glide was burnt pretty bad so I dont want to just experment with changing wires around to see if it gives me more take off power and speed....

SO...my friends...rack your brains and let me know something....please reframe from saying I dont know just try this and see it if works...Someone may know how to possibly drop one of the coils and how to hook it up...hummm...

Ok..thanks a million....

Bill

Sounds like somebody added a solenoid to get more speed.There should only be 5 solenoids The first one is the master and the rest are 1234 speeds.You cant put anymore micro switches in that pot box.

89 only had one solenoid, and from your picture of the resistors it looks correct. Not really sure where the solenoid are, or I am just not seeing them in the picture.

I made a 1986 Club car with a 5 solenoid system have five speeds (cart started to run on the first master solenoid)

So if your car is a 89 and has solenoids, then something is seriously wrong.

Sorry didnt look at the pic.My mind was wandering.A 36 volt resistor car is not going to have much power as they were clubcars cheapest cars.They stopped making them for that reason.They arent good for lifting or putting back seats on,other than that they are OK.

The 86 I upgraded does 25 MPH and the guy is still using it today and I did the upgrade 6-7 years ago.

Okay here is the deal ...... From the pic I can see you have an extra bolt in the board and probably an Extra coil .... Remove the heat shield and give us another look ..... I have one of those resistor carts here so We can figure out just what somebody did to your cart and get it running as best as it can

P.S. ...... Stop trying to confuse us more than we already are .......... Stock cart has 6 bolts and 5 coils ..... you show 7 bolts, so likely you have 6 coils

I just printed out both of your diagrams ..... you got some weird custom BS going on there, Bill. I will compare them to stock ans show you how to get back to stock.

I knew my man Scottyb would come through for me.....You are right ...6 coils with 7 terminals....Not sure what somone was trying to do when they put the extra coil on the cart....Two things that confuse me is the BLANK terminal on the V-glide and why the jumper was put on there....(it want move without the jumper)....You would think it would be like a car...put another gear in and it has more low end power but thats just not the case here....plus the top end speed is about half...

The old v-glide was melted bad and I hate to just try switching a wire and burn this one up....,

Oh yea Scotty.....I used my own number system in my diagrams to make it easyer to see where each cable went....ALSO...cant really go by color coded wires either...I think there is one different....

Some questions I have is:
1. why do I have a blank terminal on v-glide
2. why do I HAVE to have a jumber between 3 & 4
3. If the extra coil was added (not original) can I just do away with one..which one......hummmm..

Oh yea...no heat shield on the resisters...the sun was shading part of it...I will try to take a better picture today and post but you can see the 6 coils and 7 terminals..

Ok....racking our brains again....

Bill
