Default Re: 2000.5 Club Car 48 Volt melted F/R switch???

I've checked and rechecked that all wires are where they are supposed to be. When on jack stands the tire still don't move. If I take my foot and spin them and hit the pedal at same time they will spin. But I don't over rev it. I know the motor can explode if over reved and no load is applied. ??

Update: I decided to take it to third repair shop. They checked the batteries on a load machine and 4 dropped way down. He had some good used batteries and installed them, charged over night. But... They would not finish charging. They were still charging the next morning. This has happened to me on a few occasions over the years and the batteries are just boiling. I always just unplug use the cart and recharge later. Back to the point, the new(used) batteries did not fix the cart. Still wont move. What exactly does the OBC do??? Any other ideas???

it controls charging and will keep the cart from running.......i was afraid of that but there was no real way to know until the battery issue was taken care of so we were right and wrong......you did need batteries but.........your OBC moniters charging and shuts charger off, you never mentioned anything about the charger acting up or we might have figured that out also.........well at this point theres really nothing else left other than the OBC i,m just sorry you had to spend money on a controler and motor for nothing........but good news is if you can take this as good news your about 150 bucks away from the cart running.......thats the only problem trying to help people over the puter you just never get the full picture.......if i had the cart the 1st thing i would have done was plug your charger into it and watch the charge cycle and then test the batteries........and go from there.............good luck keep us posted.............................

Shadowman, thank you for all the info and help, really appreciate it!!! I completely forgot about the charging issue until the technician mentioned it. It didn't happen very often so I'd just chock it up to a freak incident. They were supposed to swap the OBC today. I'll keep you posted, and hopefully it will be good news!! Thanks again.

theres something else i have to add just in case.....i was thinking about this and about a month ago we had a guy here who i beleive had the same year cart as yours with almost identical symptons as yours............he went thur the same thing replaced just about everything and cart still acted up.....it ended up being his soleniod which shocked me cause every indication said soleniod was good........clicked everytime and cart moved a little things like that........just something to keep in mind cause up until than i would never have beleived it had anything to do with his soleniod but in the end he said that was the problem..........just thought i would post this while thinking of it..............................

Thanks for the thought. I'll keep that in mind. I did replace it with a new HD unit. It tests fine but then again so did the original I took off. Guess we'll have to wait and see.......

OK, found out that the new motor has a rubber bushing inside the spline shaft and that I was supposed to remove the spring bushing from my output shaft. This was causing it to bind. After the Third repair shop did some tests, the motor started making noises. Plum Quick sent me a new replacement motor. Installed it last night after removing the spring bushing from the spline shaft. Cart will still not move on its own. It will go if you push it and then go. I do agree that the batteries are probably the problem as they drop to 40 volts under full pedal and cart won't move. After a short drive, 300-400 yrds. the motor was VERY hot. Temp gun registered 160 degrees??????? Can weak batteries cause a motor to get HOT??? Also noticed a "blue" liquid dripping from motor/gear housing connection. It was very watery and smelled of burned electrical??? Has anyone every had this happen?? Thanks Guys!!!

I just re-read this thread. It's not uncommon to find bad OBC and bad batteries together. I heard somebody else mention a liquid coming out of a very hot PQ motor. Can you remove the motor and find the source?

Copperhead ,

I hope you get everything fixed soon because I wan't to know how you GE 500 works with your bandit.

I have no advice cause I really don't know ****, but I have learned in life that most of the time the problem is the simplest thing.

Good luck,
Steve
