Default IQ charger delete

My charger has been acting up lately. It was throwing the circuit breaker in the electric panel, so I checked it out and found the diodes were bad. Fixed that and seemed to be working again.

Now the reset is tripping after a few minutes of charge, and the reset is hardly a year old. I havn't had a chance to trouble shoot yet but I don't want to put much more in this charger.

If this one is gone I'm contemplating going with a normal or onboard charger and ignoring the obc.
Has anyone done this on an IQ cart?

Thanks

You have one of the best chargers built and along with OBC gives the best care and life from your carts batterys. I know when you have more than one problem it make you want to throw it away and go simple but I feel you need to repair and keep your CC charger.
You may have damaged your reset ( is this the one on front of Charger? ) by the diode being bad? Go to Lester Electrical site and use their test sheet to confirm what is happening ( besides parts can be defective ) and solve your problem.

Ya, I'm gonna trouble shoot it first. I'm just look'n ahead at the same time.
When I first got the cart I had a real bout with the obc and that was with a CC mechanic working on it.

So for that sake I've considered changing the charge system.

Anyone else done it?
