Default heavy duty f-n-r switch

I bought a used 1995 club car that someone has started upgrading then burnt the f-n-r switch up. cart hasn't moved in over a year. it has an 400 amp axe contoller and heavy duty solenoid already, the cables are 4ga. but i am replacing with 4ga welding cables. I am not familiar with club car, i need to know what f-n-r switch to get? is the heavy duty club car good enough or is there one better? any info on the plum quick f-n-r switch? any help would be greatly appreciated

Check with forum sponsors for correct HD F&R control. Most HD American made controls will do very well unless the cart has extream add ons ( way larger diameter tires, high motor HP or multi speed, strange extra battery wiring that hits F&R with higher voltage, Towing heavy loads, and many other things that put way above HD loads )? The AXE4844 400 amp controller is not that much higher than stock 250-275 amp so I would look for any reason that F&R burned up rather than just maybe a old unit already damaged just to keep from burning up a new HD unit?

I believe the cause was that they used a 4ga battery wire with a 3/8 lug instead of 5/16. the cable was arcing the cooper connector. I am replacing the cables with the correct ones.

Yes any arcing can cause damage and extreem heat so unless you find some thing else you should be alright. Does your cart have a 250 amp fuse between pack and solenoid to protect system? Also on solenoid do you have pre charge resistor across large post and a diode across the small posts with color band toward plus input side of solenoid?

The standard 36v CC F&R is much more capable of handling the loads associated with upgrades than the stock 48v unit.

Old mec, yes it has the 250 amp fuse and the diode is in place, Scotty B, so should i order a regular 36 volt switch or the heavy duty 48volt
