Default Re: Scotty's Meter Install On My Precedent

Ok, Ok, I feel your anxiety. I will try to get home early tonight and re-measure the pack versus the 2 wires behind the dash. This might be a good time for another test because I have about 6-8 miles on this charge and the reading of the overall pack, I would guess, should be around 49. something. I will post back tonite or tommorrow morning.

Ok guys, came home early to do some testing. Here be de results.

Fluke #75 Harbor Freight scottyb
meter meter meter

Pack reading: 50.0 50.5 50.0

Dash reading: 50.0 50.5 50.0

As you can see, everything is consistant. I expected the cheapo Harbor Freight to be off from the rest, but its the same at the pack and behind the dash. I am not sure what to tell you about being off.06 volts. Does your handheld meter read the same the same as scottb's?

Yes. I double checked with two meters, one being a sears meter and the better meter is a Wavetek.

I want to find out were the dash feed wiring ties into to get the 48v and test at that point.

Sorry about the minispreadsheet being out of whack. Hope you can read the numbers ok. It was lined up perfect until I submitted it. About tracing the wires, I thought thats what you might do so I tried to trace mine while I had the dash apart. They join a group of wires that plug into what looks to be a factory connecter. From there they all go down and back towards the pack. On a side note, I bought a $15.95 horn from autozone today and hooked it up to 16 volts. Way cool. I let it blast for about a minute and nothing seems hot. I will mount that when I mount the meter.

It's hard to tell from the wiring diagram but it's possible the feed gets it's ground from the B- of the controller and positive from the solenoid. One thing I do know is the meter connected via the dash feed shuts off if you switch the tow/run switch to tow.

My neighbors are scared of me. Thanks for the meter scottyb. Now I just have to install it. I also hit the bezel with some good flat black paint. Erict, I have a thought, the first thing I did to this cart after bringing her home was to pull the (-) wire from the reverse buzzer under the dash(I back up to much to stand the noise). I taped it up good and let it hang with the rest. That shouldnt make a difference, but its something I did. I also did not turn the switch to tow to see if voltage was still present at the two wires in question. My guess would be that it shuts ALL juice down.

Yup, it shuts it all off and while it is convenient using the dash feed that was the one thing I didn't like as when my cart sits or is stored I always switch it to tow. Since I ran separate wires for the meter it's not an issue anymore...
