Default 2001 48 volt cc carryall 2 obc problem

I have a 2001 48 volt cc carryall 2. was told that the obc was bad so I replaced it. Then plugged the charger in to it so it could charge and it smoked the new obc. This made me think that It was my charger so I put another new obc on my cart but didn't plug the charger to it this time and it smoked the obc again. I tried my charger on another cart (same kind)that was working fine before plugging my charger to it. After I hooked my charger to the other cart it would not do anything and all the wiring on the back of the key switch was melted. Any ideals? Thanks for any help.

Before this whole problem started what was happening? Charger wouldn't turn on OR was OBC SMOKED OR charger wouldn't shut off and charged at low rate? As you have damaged another cart with your charger I would say you have a defective charger, unless it was not correct CC model? If you dont have electronic knowledge I would take charger into a qualified CC dealer for repairs. Who told you that OBC was bad ( dealers mec or anyone with any qualifications? ) did they personally check to confirm diagnosis? I am presuming you checked and double checked any wiring that was connected with remove and replace of OBC? If in doubt I would double check with wiring diagram. Did you give full CC serial number AND TAKE IN OLD OBC UNIT TO HAVE DEALER CROSS REFERENSED, when getting new OBC? There are many different part numbered OBC units and to make it even worse the cross over parts manual some times gives incorrect info? I had this happen several times but was lucky in that it wouldn't turn charger on? Before replacing another one I would first check and make sure new unit is direct replacement for old unit by comparing part numbers on old and new? Sorry that not only do you have your own cart to fix but now you have another one as well with burned wiring??

Sounds like something is hooked up wrong. Check your wiring very closely with a diagram.

my cart seemed like it was not charging & it would only move a few feet and quit. After a couple of days it would not move at all. I figured that this was because it was dead. All batteries load tested good. BTW my cart is a 01club car carryall 2. Took the charger to a golf cart repair shop and they said that they didn't have a cart that they could plug it in to to test it. I told him that my neice had a 2002 clubcar iq & ask if the charger would work on her cart. The repair guy said yes that it would work. He told me to plug it in to my neice's cart to see if it would charge it. Her cart was running fine before we plugged our charger in to it. The charger came on and stayed on for about 10 sec & shut off. We left it plugged in for about 15 min to see if it was going to kick back on but it never did. After unplugging our charger from her cart, the cart would not do anything! We started checking all the wiring and found that the wires on the key switch were melted. Some of the wires were melted through out the whole wiring harness. We went to a diff repair shop that said if the on board computer was bad that it would not let the charger kick on. We took our OBC to that shop & they sold us a new replacement for it. Got it home and hooked it up just like the wiring diagram showed and after a couple of min it started smoking and had a burnt spot on the front of it. Hubby said that he thinks that the voltage suppressor in the charger is bad. If you have any ideal what it is or what we should do, please let me know. Thanks for all your help. feleciaelaine

Also does anyone have a wiring diagram for either cart. Pretty sure I have the right one but would like to make sure.

Question--How long have you had this carryall and have you had problems before with batterys or charging system? What is age of batterys and who did load test on batterys, and have you or someone qualified done any other tests like pack voltage and individual batteryvoltage OR hydrometer tests with single float unit with temperature correcting scale? Personally I WOULD NOT TAKE THE ADVISE OF ANY SHOP OTHER THAN A CLUB CAR DEALER IN YOUR CASE TO BE SAFE AFTER POSSIBLY BEING MISSINFORMED TWICE NOW?? Not that the OTHER shops maybe more than qualified as many private shops are BUT?? Was either of these "REPAIR SHOPS" a Club Car Dealer? If not I would possibly have my doubts how qualified they could be to OK the use of a 2001 Carryall 2 charger in a 2002 IQ cart? I'm sorry that I have no wiring diagram nor parts list showing charger for your 2001 Carryall and this makes it impossible for me to confirm whether chargers are universal from yours to your nieces cart. I assume your carryall 2 isn't a IQ cart ( rocker switch F&R control under right leg ) and is a series cart ( lever swings right to left F&R under right leg ) AM I CORRECT?
