Default Re: Solenoid Problem ???

Can you tell me if you are getting power to the controller when you push the peddle? The meter would read pack voltage with the test leads on B+ and B- of the controller.

Did you test and find the solenoid to be working properly?

I think you are mistakenly thinking you will get a reading across the 2 large terminals. The solenoid is just a switch making and breaking the contact between the 2 large posts when the 2 small posts have pack voltage. You do not need the resistor and diode for testing purposes ~ you do need them for general operation. Some CC solenoids had a built in diode, they were marked with a red + on the small terminal.
I hope this helps.


Above is the info you need to test the solenoid. One of the solenoid big terminals connects to Battery pack +. It should show 48v+ at the solenoid. Black meter lead on Battery pack - and red on battery side of solenoid. Now, (with the cart safely on jacks) have somebody press the accelerator and when the solenoid clicks the + power on the one large terminal should come thru to the other side large terminal.
At this point in the test you will have power to the controller with test leads on controller B+ and B-
If yes the solenoid is working.
At this point you can test controller output by placing meter red on B+ and meter black on M-. Reading should be 0 until the solenoid clicks & then voltage should rise as peddle is depressed.
