I forgot to ask ScottyB you said that you have seen plenty of carts with the charger mounted under the rear area so my question to anybody is do you have any pictures of this type of charger mounted on the Cart it would be a great help for me I have never seen one.
If the jumper wire made your ammeter rise you've got a bad OBC or a bad fuse on the back of the receptacle. Check it the same way again, but try both sides of the fuse. If both sides give the same result your OBC isn't allowing power to travel through it. It's not closing the internal charge circuit and the OBC must be replaced.

Dave I tested the fuse with my meter it test fine reads through and I will do the test you want is there any other fuses besides the 1 in the GREY line and the bolted in fuse that we are using maybe I missed 1? If not than this is real bad news I can't find the OBC for less than $250 any place and I searched hard looked at every site I could I have not called a Cart Dealer for a price do you work for a Dealer if so can you quote me a good price on 1 other wise I will be looking at Selling my charger and putting in a on board solid state charger that is self contained. I might be wrong here but if I understand it correctly the circuit breaker is the first line of defense for not burning up the OBC and the people that bypassed this breaker because it kept tripping ruined the OBC or at least it should have been inspected as to why the breaker was tripping! Maybe I don't understand it correctly though?

It is like I said the Fuse is good and I got the exact same result both sides raised the ammeter Gage to 17 on the charger. I know that you and Scottyb both say this charging system is really good but if I have to spend as much as a New self contained automatic charging system cost that is 1/3 or less the size why not go that route Sam's has a Stanley fully automatic charger for sale for $99 now there are not any reviews on it because it is new some of the systems that I have looked at have 2 year warranty's and cost $150 or so like I said this has me really confused as what to do repair or replace not to mention really mad because this cart was next to her sons and he is the one who swapped the battery's etc... and I thought we were friends oh well its only money right!

No, the circuit breaker doesn't protect the OBC. It protects the charger. There's nothing wrong with your charger. Like I mentioned above, the OBC won't close the circuit and let current pass through it. Replace the OBC.

And no I can't quote you a price on here, I'm not a site sponsor. Try them. They're all great people.

I can't find 1 with any warranty! I still think selling my charger and buying a New on-board system with a 2 year warranty is a better way to go. Scottyb has a 48 volt charger on his site that interest me and I will call him. There are others as well I don't like mfg company's that keep you tied to them for repair parts and control the price that way. Complete systems with warranty's are for sale for the same price or less than the replacement OBC.The jumper wire test tells the story about the charger working correctly and the OBC not working correctly it is a fast nice simple test. And I guess that I loose this bites thank you for all of your help and input I wish that some other readers would step in and tell me what systems they have changed over too and how well that they work maybe I need to start a new Post asking that question to get that answer?

Wow . . 135 posts in this thread . . it has been suggested and shown that the OBC is bad . . . post #1 you stated you wanted to mount a charger in the cart and your last post you are looking for a new charger to mount in the cart again . . . this thread has become more of a debate than a help forum . . .

It sure is not my intent to be chasing my tail in circles but that is where this has taken me. If I would have known about using a jumper wire in the first place than the issue would have been put to bed. I could of then have gotten Quotes for replacing the OBC and Quotes for other stand alone chargers.A stand alone charger was my first thought in the first place because my charger was not working correctly. And I would have been a lot further along with this project spring is coming and I need it completed for her. Besides that sitting at this desk makes my hands go numb and hurt like heck. I thank everyone for the input and I already am getting Quotes I don't know who sponsors this site that has other type of chargers for sale I just got started looking I asked in a different thread if any body has changed to a stand alone one and if so what kind etc.. but there are no replies except for someone trying to sell me a Used OBC at that I asked what cart it came out of what make etc... and the big question why was it removed buying a used OBC to me would by like buying a used scratch off lottery ticket for half price you get what you got.

OK NOW FOR JUST A LITTLE INFORMATION I went out and took out 1 8 volt and hooked up a fully charged 12 Volt to confirm that it is not Low Voltage making the charger not kick in I had 53 volts and it would not work Dave said the cart he was working on yesterday had the same type of issue but would not move I tried the OBC reset and my cart won't move now either BATTERY'S BATTERY'S BATTERY'S then start a test.
