That 4 Pin plug is for the handheld programmer. It'll function fine without it. What kind of controller did you buy? If the large connector with all the pins will plug into it I would go for it. Don't worry about the 4-pin plug. It's useless... especially if it's an alltrax.. I believe they use a different type cable for their programming.

OKAY SWEET! I thought I had the wrong one. So did you read the question about the solenoid? Do I need to upgrade to HD solenoid before firing this baby up? I dont want to blow my new controller? Or can I just use it as is until stock solenoid goes out then replace with HD? Also, alltrax state you should use minimum of 2 gauge cables when using 500 amp controller? I have 4 gauge is this okay?

Tahoe is correct. The Alltrax has it's USB-serial cable that you can purchase and connect to your Laptop. That 4 pin is only used for a Curtis/CC programmer. Sorry for the delay but I have some serious issues with my INTERNET provider and I had to borrow my wifes Verizon Card for the time being. I also tried borrowing my neighbors but the signal is too weak... LOL

Good luck!

Everything is hooked up and ready to go, but I am afraid to try everything out with my stock solenoid. Do I need a heavy duty solenoid to protect my controller or will it be fine with the stock?

I'd replace it with a heavy duty one before I did a whole lot of riding... I don't think it'll damage the controller, but it may cook the solenoid. I've got an IQ PLUS solenoid on mine (2006 Precedent, 350A Controller). Club Car uses them on the heavy duty vehicles that come standard with 8 6Volt batteries and a 500A controller. It works great and it's MUCH cheaper than the so called "Heavy-Duty" solenoids.

Thanks tahoe. Where can I get one? Any of our sponsors or can I order one from your dealership?

I couldn't be any more frustrated. I tried everything out and it still will not move. I guess I will have to take it to a qualified club car technician... Bummed.

Put a test lead on the fuse and make sure it's OK... Please don't assume that it's OK... test it. Will the cart go into charge mode or is the OBC locked out? Could you or did you tighten or loosen the cables off the motor using just one wrench which could of twisted the terminals? Did you break the large resistor on the solenoid? Does it show resistance using a ohm meter? In other words... retrace your steps first. You still have your original motor... try that as well... there is either something wired wrong, some lead broken, something left off... you have to check everything again.

You can buy one wherever you want. I'm not a sponsor so I can't persuade you to do anything. I'm just here for the tech support.

Cart will charge. I don't know how to test the fuse? I have a multifunction tester that I just picked up though if thats what I need to do it with??? I used a socket wrench to take the nuts off of the motor. I don't see how two wrenches could be used nor have I heard that. How do I check if they are twisted? Lastly, will the multifunction tester test the solenoid? Still reading instructions on the tester sorry....
