Smile Re: 1996 48v Regen Module Issue

Hello - Am I able to use a generic 48 v solenoid other than C.C.? They appears to be $70 dollars plus shipping. The more I think about it, the more I believe I may have not been on the positive side of the small terminal. I was jumping across the two small terminals. The diode did pop as well. Anyway, bad mistake on my side!
Here is a picture of my cart. This thing is super CLEAN! Has nice fold-down windshield. There is ZERO damage to any panels. What is the cart worth as it sits? I'm seeing 48 volt Chargers selling for over $300. The batteries are worth over a $100 at the scrap yard. (I've already checked) I really hate the thought of scrapping out this cart. Tires are good. Zero rips in the seat. The frame and suspension must be worth something.
If I pull my Controller, should a good dealer be able to test it? I should really check this. I'm guessing the last guy gave up on it and came to the conclusion that it must be bad. I see there is a computer next door on the same mounting plate. Could this also be faulty?
Here are a couple pictures of the cart.
As always, thanks for everyones help. This site is AWESOME!!!

BTW, here is something else to chew on.... My first intention for this cart was to convert to gas. Was told the same axle was used for both designs. Finding a good used engine is not an easy find.... Thanks again for the help!!!

pais54,... I have the Electrical Schematic for the 1996 Regen I cart if it would help you. One way to immediately tell the difference in the 1996 Regen is the "Rocker" switch as I believe this is the first time it was introduced. The other main difference is that the foot petal / motor control was a "Continuiously Varible 0-5K Pot",.. not like the V-Glide or the MCOR.

Hello Trigger - A wiring schematic would be good. This does have the Rocker switch. Do you happen to have a cheap solenoid that I wrecked? Will a picture of the connector on the Pedal help? I can take one tomorrow. Thx

pais54,...Yes that is the type of rocker switch. I don't think your picture of the pedal would help. It is way under the cart and it is all covered so don't waste your time. I don't have a solenoid but you may just check at your local Auto dealer. You can also go online to Club Car parts house and they will tell you what AMP solenoid you would need. Here is a link to a place that I use but it is a long way from WI.

wow you really need to slow down and try and figure this out? it seems like your not wanting to drop any money in it.............your not gonna find a generic solenoid for it they arn,t made, you need a 48 volt golfcart solenoid for it and thats gonna cost at least 60 bucks plus shipping but right now you don,t even know if it needs it...........you need to get the wiring diagram and the troubleshooting guide for it that will help you more than anything..............

Shadowman,... In his last couple of notes pais54 said that he Tried to take the solenoid apart (Don't know why)and pulled the internal wires off of the coil winding. From what he said the solenoid is DEAD.

Smile Re: 1996 48v Regen Module Issue

Hello All - Here is the situation I'm in..... I already have a '99 C.C. that runs and works great. I really don't need a second cart. I have 2 choices: 1) Fix the cart and sell it. 2) Scrap the cart and get the most I can from the pieces.
I've done some reviewing in what a good running cart is worth. They are in the $1,000 to $1,300. range
Choice 1 (Fix the cart) I have nothing in it as it sits. I will need new batteries ($650.), a new Controller ($165. w/shipping), new solenoid ($65.), new batter cables ($25.) Choice 1 is now $905. plus labor which is free. Sell cart for $1,100. and make a couple hundred.
Choice 2 (Scrap It) The current batteries are worth $100 in scrap. The good Power Drive Charger should bring $200. The rolling chassis should be worth something. I'm still over a hundred with this option.
I'm a mechanical guy. In fact that is the degree I have. I'm really not a sparky guy!
I really do think it would be nice to get this running. The body is so darn nice..... Thanks again for the help by both of you!!

@pais54 . . . it seems you have sized up your options . . . now you just have to make a decision . . . if nothing else, repairing this car will equate to $$$ in knowledge/experience . . .

depending on where you live that cart running might bring you 1500 to 2000 dollars i have to admit when they are in good working order they are nice carts however its non running where issues with them pop up...................if its a controller and trigger has one he,ll sell you its worth putting it in and than sell it for a grand telling potential buyers it needs batteries..........if its just a solenoid again put it in and up for sale same as if it were controller.............but to get it running your gonna have to invest some money somewhere....without reading thur this whole thread again have you tried testing anything? other than batteries ok so if you havn,t can you jack up the rear and jump the large post on solenoid turn key on put in gear and press pedal.......see if cart runs if so you need a solenoid and if not we try other things, thats right you might have ruined that solenoid if you did then just disconnect your reagan solenoid and use that to test and put it back when your done...........................
