if all cables and wires are hooked up right and your battery voltage is good and your charge receptical is good and the charger works on other carts theres nothing left but the OBC and if the dealer dosn,t know that well ......................97 depending on if this is the 1st time your OBC has went bad than its the original and it was very very common for them to go bad.........i beleive out of every year cart with an OBC i have replaced more on 97,s than almost all others combined................................

Some Club Car Dealers hire idiots by the way. Just thought I'd add that.

david you are one of the few people who i wouldn,t hesitate to reccomend from a dealer.......most know less about carts than a lot of guys here, how many times have we read by a new member that the dealer told me this or that and they spend hundreds of dollars only to come here and get the right info 1st time.......i trust very few dealers 8 out of 10 have techs don,t know the difference between a golfcart and a bag of apples..............................

You're exactly right. Automobile dealers are just as bad. I don't understand how someone could have a job and be happy with it but not have a clue what they're doing. The lack of desire to learn is what irks me the most. I have a very low tolerance for ignorance and I'm surrounded by it every day.

Shadowman was correct on his first reply. Replaced the OBC and it solved the problem. Thanks for everyone's help. First time I used this site and I find there are people with a lot of knowledge that are willing to help.
Thanks Much again.
