Ok, diverting the thread back to the fire, from insurance, deaths etc...

Alltrax looked through everything and called me today and asked that I measure the resistance of the motor's F1 and F2 terminals, through the wires that connect at the controller so getting a measurement of wires and motor combined. With the meter on the 200 ohm setting, I recorded 1.8 ohms.

So I run the same controller but have different motor and run the corresponding field map for my motor. But out of curiosity.. I measured mine for a comparison. My motor through the wires is reads 1.3 ohms.

So they are obviously looking for high resistance from the motor to see if it burnt up the controller, but to be honest I don't think 1.8 ohms is gonna do it. My money is back on the controller.

BTW, if anyone else has a Plumquick IQ GE motor and wants to do the same test, I would appreciate it hearing what you measure! This particular motor is exactly like what is on their Plumquick website.

I emailed them my findings so hope to hear more tomorrow.

I should have said don't quote me...... I think they are normal. I don't usually make those measurements but, I believe 1.1 to 2.6 are the acceptable limits. They are looking ~ I would be a little surprised if they didn't send somebody to look?

Yea, I would still like to see if someone that has the same motor could do the same test... I would appreciate... I am willing to beg.. LOL

Something I think needs considering is the inclusion of a fire extinguisher as an accessory to your golf cart.
