Default 2004 Club Car Charge issues

I have a 2004 Club car 48volt IQ regen. I am having a strange problem with the charger. When the charger is plugged in, I hear the click and the hum of the charger, but the volt meter does not move. I tried another charger with the same luck.

Yesterday I used a trickle charger to get the batteries charged up some suspecting the voltage had dropped below where the charger would kick in. This morning when I plugged the charger in, I heard the click and the hum, but the volt meter would start and then drop to 0 every 2 sec. I tried a reset of the OBC and now the charger just clicks and hums with no volt meter movement.

I am getting 48.0 volts on the battery pack. I was under the impression I should be getting around 50 volts on the pack when fully charged.

Cart runs good. Could the OBC be going bad?

Go to the STICKIES on Club Cart Electric site and use Test procedures from "COMPLETE MANUAL FOR POWER DRIVE CHARGERS"

I had tried all of the STICKIES. I took it to a shop and it did turn out to be a bad OBC.

Just curious..How much did the shop charges to replace your OBC including parts and labor?

That was me shadow.. I was curios what a shop would charge. I would advise others to shop around for OBC prices. The OBC for my 2004 CC ranged in price from $145 to $325 from different vendors. I do not believe the quality or manufacture of the OBC was a factor in this particular case. Just different mark-up amounts by vendors. My purchase was from a reputable dealer and not an Ebay seller. It took me a bit of researching to find a good price but well worth it in the end. Dollars saved allows me to buy more goodies

yes it does, and it pays to shop around but stay away from E-bay...................but figure if you went to a dealer you could add another 150.00 to that 155.00........................
