Every potbox is 5K-0, as is every V-Glide with either the three pin or six pin plug, and every MCOR. The old 0-5K V-glides did not have plugs.. they were hardwired into the system by removing the rear cover and hooking the wires directly to the contact posts... White and Black.
No problem David... As I stated in a previous post, I never tried to test the potbox on my cart.. After being submerged under five feet of seawater for over ten hours while plugged in to the charger, every electrical component and wire was considered to be junk.. The only electrical part I saved and reinstalled on the cart was the reverse buzzer, it was the only part that survived..

Guess I`m going to have to crawl under it again and see what the readings are with my VOM. You all know what thats like for this old man? :-) As long as I can change the settings on the controller I don`t care. Out of curiosity what would happen if I set it for 0-5K and it was a 5K-0 ? Take off HARD as soon as I touched the pedal?

Did you upgrade the wires too? If so to what?

CT,

You should be able to access the controller thru the removable access panel between the seat and bagwell.. Just unhook the green and yellow signal wires at the controller and connect your ohmmeter to them..

CT, I did upgrade the battery cables to 2ga stranded and soldered. The welding cables are probably better but mine seem to be working just fine. I covered the ends with heat shrink to prevent corosion.

Removed the bag well basket and then the access cover. I do have a 5K-0 pot box. Actual readings were 5.49K down to .38K....give or take, actual readings due to bad connections or what ever makes it a 5K-0. Thanks for the advice of going thru the access panel, made it so much easier!!
