Default testing computer

I need to find out the best way to test and make sure that computer on my golf cart is bad! I think its around a 2000yr model i know for sure its a 48volt. Also need to know where to find model and serial numbers. I think its the computer because when i push the pedal i hear the solenoid click but nothing happens I tested the side of computer where juice goes in and i'm getting something there but not on the other side not even when the pedal is pushed down

Welcome to BGW!


OBC bypass & Test =
The black wire coming out of charge receptacle has a yellow fuse holder, open it up and connect a jumper from the end coming out of receptacle to the negative on Battery 6 or the last one in series. Plug in the charger if it comes on your OBC is most likely TOAST.

Serial number (copy/paste):

CLUB CAR

1975 thru 1980
The serial number tag is located… under the seat on the driver’s side of the car, on the aluminum I-beam frame rail, next to the two batteries. If there serial number tag happens to be missing, you can identify these carts by the fact that they have three foot pedal controls. One is a regular brake, the other, a parking brake, and the third pedal, the accelerator.

The serial number code is arranged as follows: A78XX – XXXXX. In this sequence, the A designates it as an electric model, which is the only model they made (No gas powered carts in those years). The next two numbers are the year of manufacture. In the example above, it would have been manufactured in 1978.

1981 thru today (DS Model)
The serial number tag is located…on the dash board just below the right side glove box, and above the floor mat. These carts can be distinguished from their older 1975 thru 1980 cousins, having only two foot pedal controls. One is a brake, the other, an accelerator.

The serial number code is arranged as follows: A84XX – XXXXX or, AG89 – XXXXX. The letters may vary but with either arrangement, the first two numbers are the year of manufacture.

thanks for the info guys it's been raining today here so i didnt get to try the jump wire but when i was out there trying to find the serial number tag i noticed that the wire that had the big yellow fuse on it was grey instead of black dont know how much of a diff that is was still gonna try the jumper wire but rain stoped me. I did find the tag but guess what cant make out anything on it faded out really bad but the cart does have only the two pedals i think its late 90's or early 2000 model. An d just for the the record remember i am new to this stuff but OBC does stand for on board computer rite? I will repost as soon as i get to do that test and thanks for all the help.

Yes, OBC is on board computer but I think you are talking about your controller?

This may not be the best approach.
Testing the controller at this point could be a long goose chase.

Why don't we start with identifying your cart and the type of drive system you have and then you tell us the problems or symptoms and we will try to help you who determine which part or parts have failed.
