Default Re: Not getting a full charge

The computer has a lockout circuit to help prevent the car from driving off while the charger is plugged in. It feeds negative to the small yellow solenoid wire when the charger is unplugged. The computer may be stuck in the lockout mode. You could bypass it by jumping a wire from that solenoid post to the b- post on your battery system.

Only do that if you have a physical handle for forward and reverse (not a button). Jumping the others systems causes smoke and a broken controller.

If that fixes the car, I still recommend getting a new computer. The charging side will soon follow.

if you bepass the low voltage circuit in the charger it will kinda sneak past the OBC if its bad and that just tells us what direction to help you, the cart and charger talk to each other.......so yes by messing with the charger we can tell you what might be wrong with the cart..................

did you take the wire out of the receptical and solder it? did you use silver solder? i,m not certain you can repair that wire thats why they give you a new one in some OBC kits......that wire will rot and cause the kind of issues your having and since yours camp out it could be as simple as replacing it..........the receptical has to come out of cart and taken apart to do it........................

i re soldered the gray wire. Can you use any wire of the same value or is it somehow special? I did the whole jumper bypass thing on the charger and now the charger is steadily charging. But I want this thing to operate properly. Now what do I do.

theres something different about that wire i beleive......your charger will not shut off with it bypassed so after 10 hours or so unplug it ......the only way to get it right if your grey wire is now ok is to replace OBC but again i would do that wire 1st if it works its much cheaper than a OBC..........................

Ok you asked the question but you do not want to do anything !!

1 do you know that the charger has a solenoid in it ?
2 do you know that the OBC controls this solenoid ?
3 do you know where the OBC is (in the cart)
jumping the plug takes the OBC out of the picture !!

5 download the manual and have a go at it yourself !
