with the controller out disconnected wire's taped what voltage do you get at the solenoid.

and If your wanting to make a hotrod then get a 400 or 500 amp controller and get rid of the OBC get yourself a new charger with built in controls. you can get a charger complete, new, for less than an OBC.

the controller has an H-Bridge built into it 4 on off switches thats how it changes direction so with power to both sides of the solenoid it sounds like the controller is bad !!!

in fact it has two H-Bridges in it one for the F wire's and one for the A wire's

where o where can i get all that for less than a OBC?????? id love to bypass it! soo basicly your saying im gonna need a new controller?? i will do that test when i get home to nite and post results!

im not sure what is the deal with my charger, it will charge at 10amps till it reaches 51v-52v but will stay at 5amps the rest of the time and make my batteries leake. is that normal?? i have (i guess) the stock charger

thanks

Your batteries may be overfilled if they "leak" under charge.
The cut off voltage for that charger is 58V but I have seen many go as high as 63v with no problems.

5amps is the 3rd stage of the charge cycle... it is normal.
How long have you let the charger sit at 5amps?

ok good! i was getting a bit worried, i thought it would hurt the batteries to charge more than 50v

not to long cause i was not sure of the leaking. they are brand new batteries that is whay i asked too

if your charger isn,t shutting off that could also be the OBC i have seen that on more than one 1998 where it just over a period of time fried the batteries.......new OBC and new batteries problem solved...........don,t ask me why but only on a 98 have i seen that happen and at 1st i refused to beleive it was the OBC but in the end it was.....if everything is right your charger should time out at 16 hours wether batteries are fully charged or not and shut off.....this did not happen on carts mentioned...............

oy....of corse the first cart i get has to be the odd one!! lol

im gonna let it charge for 16hrs and see what it does for starters. but an OBC could be the reason it is not running???? what is the fuctions of an OBC?? and is there a way to by pass it to see if my controller works?? plus id like to by pass it all together and just put my charger on a plug in timer till i get better charger

scottyb told me how to do a controller test BUT i think its for another unit, unless i read wrong:

If the motor is not turning, the problem may be in the directional switch or motor. The controller is bad and must be replaced if there is no voltage.
I probably should mention controller test is done with at least one rear wheel jacked off the floor and key on, directional selector in forward. ~ test leads on B+ and M- should read 0v then push the gas and watch the voltage rise to full pack voltage?
i dont have an "M-" terminal on my unit, so im not sure if this is my unit

yes a bad OBC will keep it from running.....all it really does is control the charging system and yes you can eliminate it but you,ll have to buy another charger........a few of these guys have done it so i,ll let them explain how its done the right way............................
