Default Re: Charger not working

Use two jumper wires. Install a jumper wire from the back of the charger receptacle black wire to the main negative battery post, then use another jumper wire to go from the grey wire to the main negative battery post. You said that the charger clicked when you manually jumped out the grey wire. This indicates that the charger relay will turn on when provided the necessary power. However, once the charger turns on, if it cannot detect the battery pack, the ammeter will remain at zero. The 2nd jumper wire from the black wire to the B- battery will provide a direct connection to the battery pack. If the charger works with these two jumpers in place, replace the Onboard computer.

Charger clicked on and began charging, but it tripped the 15 amp breaker on the front of the charger after a few minutes. Still OBC?

OBC is definitely the problem. The circuit breaker could have tripped as a result of the jumper wire being undersized. This test is only for diagnostic purposes and is not intended to be used to charge the cart for a long period of time.

Post your serial number and I'll tell you which OBC you need.

my serial number is A0039-938868. Thanks for all of your helpful knowledge. Didn't want to spend the $300 if I didnt have to, but will replace the OBC.

I'd buy a DPI SmartCharger and jumper out the OBC before I'd waste my money on a new OBC....

If you have a series cart with a lever operated F&R switch, the OBC is 101909901. If you have a Regen 2 Cart with a toggle switch F&R and a tow/run switch under the seat, the correct OBC is AM1229201

If it's bad, you'll get the same results. However, these rarely blow. I guarantee you as soon as you touch the jumper wire from the terminal on the back of that fuse to the main negative battery post your charger needle will jump up.
Im having the same issue, I got the charger to kick on with the 2nd test procedure. Jumping the post of the fuse on the back of the plastic receptacle to the main negative. From what I read this is a bad charge circuit. Can this be replaced or does the whole OBC have to be replaced?

It depends. Does it work when you jump it to either side of the fuse or just one side? If it's one-sided it's probably just a blown fuse. If it works on both sides, it's an internal OBC issue and there is no repairing it.
