Default Charging problems

I installed some new cables (see Cable Problems.).

Short:
Sometimes the cart charges and sometimes it does not.

Long:
After putting the cables on, I hooked it to the charger. It started charging, but I looked at it later and the battery light was on and the charger was not running (no hum.) The next day (yesterday) I tried it again, and it charged fully (7+ hours). Rode it around today for 45 minutes or so then started charging it. Charger came on and was humming. Looked at it 10 minutes later and the battery light was on and the charger was off.

Resetting the Club Car On board computer - reset the OBC

To reset the OBC the following must be done in this
order:
If no Tow/Run Switch then skip that step

Key Switch to Off
Forward/Reverse to Neutral
Tow/Run Switch to Tow
Disconnect the Battery NEGATIVE () wire
from the Battery Minus terminal on the battery
pack.
Put the Tow/Run to Run
Forward/Reverse Switch to Reverse
Key Switch to On
Lock the throttle pedal down
The reverse buzzer will sound and go off in about 30
seconds. Leave the cart like that for 5 min to cause the
OBC to reset.
To reconnect the OBC back into the system:
Key Switch to Off
Forward/Reverse Switch to Neutral
Tow/Run switch to Tow
Reconnect the Batt wire to the battery minus
terminal on the battery pack.
Hope this helps

Default Re: Charging problems

Looks like I this is my fault. When putting in the new cables, I ran the one from the negative post(under driver) to the controller under the hole instead of through it. Somehow I found people doing the same thing with the same problem. Cut the end off and ran it through the hole and put an end on it, then it started working.

Thought I would update so people who search will see the solution.
