Default New to electric carts

Ok I have a question because I am new to electric carts. What is A OCB? Is this something I will need eventually? And most Importantly for ScottyB is this something I can get my hair caught in? :)

OBC on board computer.. it controls the charging of your vehicle... also, a failed one can prevent your car from running...

thanks for the clarification. So maybe there was a reason the cart was donated. I guess I will have to wait and see what the new batteries do.

The obc has a hole in it that a wire runs through, the hole actually reads the amps in the wire. It also reads battery voltage to cut charger on and off. You can troubleshoot obc with a jumper wire. From last battery postive, to the small post on the soleniod that only has one wire, should be a small yellow or blue/white wire. Don't leave hooked up as a fix, only to troubleshoot charger problems.

Make sure not to do this on a regen or I.Q. car.. it can blow the controller.. I learned that the hard way..

I don't think so..... But watch out for that electric motor !!!
What voltage is your cart and how is the battery fund coming?
