Default Is my OBC bad? '98 48V Series

'98 48 V series cart. Solenoid wasn't picking up, so I found that + not getting to solenoid coil. Microswitches check OK. Reset OBC and it seems to be OK and runs. Drove around for 20 minutes. Tried again 3 hours later no go. Reset OBC again it runs. I would guess I have a bad OBC?
Thanks

When it stops again, jump the negative side of the solenoid activation circuit (The small wires, on the non-silver stripe, side) to the negative -48v on the battery pack. They try it, if it runs, then most likely your OBC is infact bad.

They are not cheap, hope you can find a used one.

Last I checked they were about $175.00 if you know where to buy. Call Bulldog Supply, the Club Car Dealer in my town. They will ship anywhere.

Although, this is for an 01 and up, I would still call and ask about your year.

Steve, are you referring to the OBC? It shows for electric 2004 and later Precedent.

OBC - check your model/part number on the sticker of your OBC - and all the other numbers to match it up - here is a new one for $99 - check all his listings - he has several different ones -

Yeah, you are right! '04 and up. He should call and ask anyway, before he takes a chance on fleabay. That other one was cheap, $99 for new!

I guess the precedent OBCs are cheap, if you buy it from a discounter.
