Default Re: 1998 Club Car Problem

When I tested the new key switch the same way it tested good so I am confident that I tested it correctly. Anyway, the other tests that you explained is just what I had done. Pack voltage it 49 volts. Battery side of the solenoid is the same 49 volts. The other side of the solenoid unfortuntely also has 49 volts and when I turn the switch on and press the pedal it goes to zero. I know that is backwards but I don't know why.

Take the diode off and retest.

thanks scottyb. I will do that tomorrow. I also ordered a new diode and resistor tonight. running out of cheap parts to change.

I retested with the diode removed but got the same results scotty.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I would have full voltage on both sides of the solenoid?

It all depends on where U are testing the voltage from.

If You are using a common location (same location) for the ground lead ,
AND the solenoid is either shorted or closed normally it should measure the same ?

Power off ,If the solenoid is not engaged ,measure across the solenoid for continuity,is should be open, and show infinite resistance.
now with power applied and key on peddle depressed the resistance across the solenoid should be close to 0-1 ohm.

I am using a common location. The solenoid is new so I assume that it is not shorted. No contunity across the solenoid ever. I know that I should not have pack voltage on both sides of the solenoid with the power off and the solenoid open but I do and don't know why.

Progress at last. I found an old post by TahoeDawg that helped me out. I ran a jumper wire for the negative activation post on the solenoid to the B- post on the controller and it ran. Looks like the OBC is bad. Could reseting the OBC fix the problem or should I just not bother trying and get me a new one?

read this = http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/elect...er-system.html
and consider
$0 cost for resetting OBC ??
$150 - $250 for new ??

Do whichever U makes U happy !
