Default Re: F & R switch sparking when engaged

I am saying leaving the COIL ENERGIZED shortens it's useful life. That is different than leaving the key on. But, if the cart is mis-wired and leaving the key on does energize the solenoid....

Back from the dealer again. Ok, new solenoid, wireing errors straightened out (with schematics from dealer) and 38 volts at v-glide wiper brush but still no go! I'm lost. I have double checked all connections, wires, etc. Any ideas? I don't hear the new solenoid clicking when I turn the key on but 13 volts going through key switch circuit.

Lightbulb Re: F & R switch sparking when engaged

I am gonna get this volt stuff under my hat! Moved the red wire from the key switch to the #6 battery (36 volts) and we have ignition. When cleaning and repairing connections a few days ago I had to shorten the red wire due to installing a new connection. Well I just hooked it up to the nearest negative post never thinking it needed a full 36 volts to operate. Gimme the dunce hat I'll wear it a while. Can't wait to get offshore and pick the technician's brains about this stuff.

goin for a ride. gonna turn on the heater and check out the back of the property.

Had the same thing happen, to a point. I started to install the new solenoid about an hour ago, but while yes, it was fried, why were sparks coming from about a foot away. I checked it out because it took entirely too long to get a new solenoid in the first place. One of the F/R switch (where the sparks were) micros were, was 1/2 gone. Was reading this thinking well?... how did he?... then I saw the last post. So, maybe I'm heading in the right direction? If one of those sticks/explodes can it not really fry everything?.... (Sorry, 1st Post). Thanks.

The micro switches are so lightly made that they burn up like fuses in a shorted circuit. Usually not the cause but the victim.

Oh, okay. It was kinda sideways and melted to the housing. Its my 1st project, so I'm a little wary. Don't want to get zapped because I missed something. Thanks.
