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

Ok. Picked up new energizer batt. From SAMs today. Installed, tested at 50.9 volts. Tried it before charging. Cart still won't move!!!??? Last night it ran if we pushed first went to corner and back, 1/8 mile or so. Ran fast but motor very hot. After new batteries it will not move at all. It actually tries to go backwards even though it's in forward. Jacked baked tires off ground and when lever is in forward the tires spin backwards??? I did not change any wires on the motor just swapped out batteries. Why is the cart spinning tire backwards if I'm in forward and I didn't change anything but batteries???? Can someone please help??????? What in the world could be wrong? New motor, 3rd one, new controller, solenoid, 4ga wire set and batteries and it still will not work. ???????

question, when you upgraded to 4 gage battery cables did you run the #6 neg. cable thur the hole in OBC and not around it correct? ...............i,m trying to start at the beginning to see if we missed anything here ........also ask your kid if theres anything else she can think of that might have happened when cart quit cause i have to say this makes no sense what so ever.....................................

Yes the original 6ga wire still runs through OBC and the new 4ga bypasses straight to the controller, double wired. That's what I was told to do. Is that correct?

yes most of the time it works.....not something i would do but it works......something isn,t making sense here...........your right theres no reason for whats going on now if you just swapped a battery ....does cart have run tow switch? if so was it in tow when you changed it? and was it in tow anytime you had to push it?............................

No run tow on my cart just f&r. My dad is visiting this weekend and is pretty good w electrical issues. Can you supply me with some info on how to diagnose with a multimeter?? The only other thing we can think of is if there is an issue with the throttle(potentiometer)?? Any thoughts on that. I'm just reaching for anything at this point. Thanks.

In a series cart which you tell us this cart is, the only way to switch up Forward and reverse is to physically swap cable S1 and S2 at either the motor or the F&R end. On the F&R these are the 2 cables with the small swivel lug connections. Swapping them will reverse direction.

First test with the multimeter would be a battery pack measurement. Then measurement at the controller B- & B+ when the solenoid clicks, then a measurement at the controller B+ and M- when the peddle is gradually depressed. This last reading should increase with the peddle travel up to full pack voltage. hope this helps

Thanks Scottyb. Ok the batt pack fully charged is 51.4 v. B- and b+ was the same. B+ and M- started at zero and finished at about 23 volts. Didn't hold pedal down but about 2-3 seconds because cart was jerking and trying to reverse. What does that last reading tell us?? Thanks
