Default Re: Scotty b! Question about your F&R

Scotty, have you got an F&R switch for a 36V series resistor cart that locks in place? I have a boy with Tourette's that keeps accidentally moving it while in motion. If not, any ideas on a work around? Going from full forward right to reverse has its drawbacks!

No, I haven't heard of any thing like that for a golf cart. You are going to have to get creative. Maybe start your own thread asking for help with this in the design center?

Not only relocate switch, try a different type of switch something small that maybe you can put on the dash. They make several different types it all depends on how creative you want to be...............................

Nice ideas guys, keep them coming. Where in the wiring would I put the red guarded switch? Its a resistor/series cart so the FR switch looks like the picture Scotty posted above. That little switch won't handle the juice. I like the idea of moving the switch assembly entirely but that means I'll need to make a bunch of new 4g wires to reach it. Always something. I did find a marine battery cut off switch that can handle the power of the three batteries used for reverse. Right now my best thought is to put it in line with the positive reverse lead from the battery and mount it on the driver's side. This way, with that switch off I'll have forward and nothing.

Build some kind of guard around the existing switch, so when he moved his leg, it wouldnt foul the switch.

Kelly, I tried that. I built a box type cover that hinged at the top. You would flip it up to access the lever. He became obsessed with opening and closing it (OCD goes along with the Tourette's). The cart was built for him to provide vestibular stimulation (body movement, balance etc.) is great for calming the tics. I just finished getting it street legal (what a joke in Florida) and am finishing up the small things like adding more 12V power to accomodate some lights and noise (more stimulation). He's just really good at finding ways to challenge me (us!).

Get some 5 inch PVC pipe and cut out a 1.5 inch ring. Then using self tapping screws, screw it to the body so that the ring surrounds the switch and guards it from unintentional flipping. That'll be $5 please...........
