Default Re: OBC Bypass @ Charger

Got the rectifier yesterday (Thanks TahoeDawgZ71 ) and before I installed the new one I decided to hit it with my DMM to see what numbers I got with it.








I didn't get the right number again so it must be user error or my DMM is broken/cheap. I installed the new rectifier, bypassed the OBC at charger and I heard the hum but it did not kick on (Zero Amps). My battery pack was showing 39volts. I am guessing my original rectifier was in working order and my problem lies somewhere else.

I also tried hitting the reset button on my circuit breaker.That didn't work so I need to test out my circuit breaker. How bad of an idea would it be if I just jump the (2) wires to bypass the circuit breaker without the fuse? (For testing purposes only)


Besides testing out the circuit breaker what else can I check?

I have read that sometime the OBC can be stubborn and play funny with the charger when the pack is too low. Even though the pack reads high enough to trigger the charger I would just take a standard battery charger and charge each battery individually and get them charged up better, then try your cart charger.

if they thing hums, the circuit breaker is working. you could bypass it temporarily just to make sure if you are using a 15a circuit.

did you check the fuse on the back of the charge receptacle? sometimes they look ok, but are actually split in half and you can't see it until you look real closely. *edit* - not sure that your precedent has a fuse onboard....

OK, TahoeDawgZ71 walked me through some testing procedures. He asked me to remove the top (2) wires going into the relay. Then stick my DMM into the wires. Check out Pic Below.



The (2) wires I stuck the DMM into (Polarity does not matter) are the wires coming into the charger from the cart. Since I was showing a voltage (42.8 ) means the cable is good and that the OBC is working because it is showing a voltage. (Correct me if I am wrong) Then we knew that the Relay was bad and I had to order another one.

The relay came in today and I swiped them out along with the circuit breaker. I hooked it up and then this happened........





IT WORKED!!!!!!!!! Thank you all for the help especially TahoeDawgZ71 for the advice and the parts. I now can tackle the other problems with my cart but that will be in another thread. Thanks Again!!!!
