97 Club Car Charger won't click on
 
I have a 97 CC Centennial Regen. It had been in storage for several years before I got it. I put good batteries in it and when I tried it it wouldn't go. The solenoid clicks and the backup horn sounds but nothing. When I plugged in the charger it clicks but doesn't start to charge. My charger does work on other carts.

I tried to reset the OBC and unlike the directions I received, the backup horn didn't stop after 30 seconds. I also don't appear to have a tow switch or a fuse receptacle, just an inline fuse in a yellow waterproof case,

Would a bad solenoid cause the charger from charging as well as making the cart not move? What would be the next trouble shooting steps. Thanks

Get a digital volt meter, Lowes, Harbor Freight, auto parts store.

Measure across the entire pack , a 48 Volt cart with OBC controlled charger will not come on if the pack vontage is lower than 36-38 Volts.

let it go until it stops ( the backup horn didn't stop after 30 seconds ) this is draining power off the OBC.

The horn stopped very briefly a couple of times during the 5 minutes but never stopped completley

Should I send you the whole cart or just the horn...LOL

I will try it again, these are the directions I used.

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.

SHould I wait for the horn to stop before I start timing the 5 minutes. Like I said it stopped momentarily a couple of times but started right back up. Should I start timing after the first time it stops?????

With the last battery in the chain disconnected , this can only last so long , the horn cannot run without electricity and having the last post on the last battery in the pack is removing voltage . Tough it out !
