Default Re: another charging problem

mystery solved! On the back of the receptical the is a clear plactic bubble that has a piece of solder that protects the black wire. I think what happened is when I disconnected the black wire from the receptical, I accidently broke that solder (fuse, or whatever you call it) when I unscewed the bolt. I'm not sure if I'm expaining it right but it is now charging. I"ll take a picture and post it to better show what happened.

I'd like to thank everyone for there input. I really appreciate eveyone help.

I think forbruce mentioned it but I thought he was talking about the fuse on the gray wire in the yellow fuse holder. I think I broke the fuse by over tighting the nut securing the black wire to the fuse holder.

Thanks again for your help!

you had better be replacing the fuse and not just bi-passing it....

Price of fuse is about $15-20 online . . . just make sure you get the right one . . there is one for Powerdrive charger models and a different one for PD2/PD3 charger models . . . two different part numbers . .

he can go to an automotive store and buy a "FUSEABLE LINK" rated 30amps for about $5 will work just as well.

don't worry about the voltage of 12 volts verses 48..just be concerned with
the amp rating.

the charger puts out 10- to 15 amps ( not to high so as not to cook the battery while charging ) .

so a link at 30amps gives you double the inrush current while still giving your batteries protection against the charger shorting them out.

I got aa replacement fuse from a dealership. I didn't verify the part # but he knew my year and model so I assumed he gave me the right one. It fit fine and everything works so I think I'm good. I'm on to the next problem.....breakes grabbing when the cart heat up.
