Default Re: Automatic Charging

it could be but its not I even ran a resistance test through them I made them from new 4 gage welding cable with new copper ends so that is not it I think it is a bad cell in 1 battery its the only thing I can think of.

Does the battery test good from post to post? If so, you can eliminate a cell being the issue. It sounds like you're using power through the wire to me.

Dave I hope you are listing I fixed the Charge Indicator gage so it now works correctly and remember that I did the Salt and distilled water trick to revive the Battery's after charging this last time I had almost full bars so I drove the cart up hills and 2 1/2 miles total distance up and down hills all the time the Indicator got down to half way turned yellow etc I drove it in the shop hooked up the charger and nothing it won't kick on everything looks good and nothing was changed by me except the cables I used 4 gage welding cable now the charger is not working any Ideas Other than replace the battery's I will but not right now when I get the cart done then I will put them in and go through the break in procedure The battery's are doing a lot better now with the salt trick before it would not make it 1/2 mile before it started shaking and not moving PLEASE HELP KC

Check fuses. Make sure red wire is hooked up from receptacle to #1 battery. If you are sure the charger works you can eliminate that as a possibility. If all fuse and wires check good replace obc

Default Re: Automatic Charging

Dave? It was working now it won't that makes no sense the battery's are at least 10 times better than when I brought it home the charger worked then. It even worked when the battery's were so dead I had to push it. But now they take and hold a charge the charger won't kick in so we went in a complete circle and now the OBC is bad I know that I am stupid but this is the worst charging system I have ever used they have made solid state 1 piece battery chargers for years that will tend/charge and maintain battery's with out it being a 2 part system this is crazy! As far as the CHARGER WORKING how would I know it does not do anything now it did work but that was before I replaced the cables and got the battery's working better. I wll double check everything tomorrow again but this makes me want to scream first you tell me its the battery's so I get them working better now its the OBC I am afraid to ask but how much are they and how do I know I got the correct 1 and I assume that once I buy it I own it no returns on electrical items right then if that is not it I go buy a charger I don't understand so how do I test the charger to see if it is working? Thanks I should not vent but this is really Peeing me off. K C

Take the case off and insert the DC plug into the cart. Pull small wires off of relay and check for full pack voltage at the tips of these wires. If you get it, relay is bad. If you don't OBC is bad. By the way, I Never told you that your batteries were keeping your charger from turning on. I told you that you needed batteries because they were shot out. Not because of anything to do with your charging system. Wish this thing was in Georgia. I'd like to spend about 20 minutes with my multimeter and this cart.

Dave I am sorry for being such a A$$ about this I am was being lazy and just want the answer handed to me I went out and removed the cover to get to the OBC it is Part #16705 I also tested the output from my charger it is putting out 61.3 Volts on the Prongs I don't know another way to test the output of the charger if this is OK then how would I test the OBC or is there a way I have a friend who is a Electrical Engineer and he has a ton of equipment it might be time to get him involved I hat to bother him his house just flooded and we have been working on his mess and just got it cleaned up Sunday now they are waiting for insurance carpet etc.. just not a good time any information about test would be helpfully.

No you never told me that the battery's were keeping the charger from going on you told me that they were keeping it from shutting off the last time I charged them it shut off like it should so it must have reached the 581/2 volts or the max time worked but either way it did shut off this time it won't turn on like I just said the Prongs read 61.volts across them I don't know if that number means anything or not I will test the Voltage tomorrow what should the full pack voltage be at the tips of the small wire's after they have been removed from the relay ?

OK can someone please tell me where to buy the OBC it looks like they run $250 or at least that is the lowest price I could find at that Price I think it would be better to completely replace this charging system with a integrated system and sell my charger instead of buying the OBC but what do I know maybe this is a great system that just breaks down a lot.
