Thumbs up I want to go wild! 36V to 48V? What does she need?

Just found out I've been led astray! My 93 elec. 36V CC came with 6-12volt batteries originally. No nothing has burned YET! When I gave her a partial make over the "specialist" didn't catch it either! Through the guys here on BGW Forum, I have found out why my girl doesn't want to go and they suggested I move her up a notch or two NOW. Tell me how!???? I'm Game...

A 93 CC is a controller cart, You just need to upgrade the control and solenoid to fit your needs. The 700 GE and 400 superduty solenoid pkg #444 is a heck of a way to go for this cart. You can 36 to 48 volts with it. You will also need bigger cables and a HD F&R.

6 - 12volt batteries? That's 72volts!!! What type controller did you have?

Mae,

ScottyB has exactly what you need. He sells a complete conversion kit to go from the 36 Volts to 48 Volts. It is easy to install and he makes sure you get exactly whet you need if you talk to him about your cart and what you want it to do before you order the parts.

http://www.cartsunlimited.net/Scotty...rsion_Kit.html

You're also going to need a 48 Volt charger now too.

Trust me, you won't regret the upgrade to 48 Volts! It made mine seem like a totally different cart.

CartTrader,

The cart was equipped with 6 six volt batteries. Mae is new to carts and doesn't know the pack voltages yet.

Scotty,

It is the same cart from here:

93 Club Car just won't go!

It's a lifted 36 Volt resistor cart that's going to need your conversion kit.

. . . I think Mae meant to say her cart originally (from factory) came with six 6v batteries and she accidentally replaced them with 6 8v batteries recently, as mentioned in another thread . . .

Red face Re: I want to go wild! 36V to 48V? What does she need?

You are right! To a certain point. Originally, I'm sure she had 6/6 volt, when I got her approx. 10 yrs ago, she must have been given 6/8v batteries that's when the v-glide exploded the battery post and everything went to he**. I thought the "specialist" was supposed to have "fixed" the problem, put a lift kit on, new tires, new paint, new rims...that's when my antenna went off because of the price tag. I paid it. Took it out 1 time and it did the same thing again except no burned battery post. The guy refused to touch her again. I was left holding the bag..I didn't know what was causing the problem until a few days ago when you, BGW team, told me. Now, I want to fix her right! I have 6/8volt battery's not 12volt sorry guy's. Can you help me now?

. . . from what you are saying, you now want to convert the electrical components in your 36v resistor cart to make it a 48v controller cart . . . if that is the case, I believe ScottyB is your man . . . click below link for info and help . . .

Of course we are sorry you got stuck with a dumass specialist. Any cart man worth his weight in valuables would have know you can not put 48v through a resistor coil system, or at least would have made good on the job
If it is the cart with the Black batteries (and speed caps) I did see a row of resistor coils behind the batteries in one picture. Can you confirm?

. . . her pic DCS 0578 below, you can see the mounting points for the resistor coils . . .

Ok 6-8v batteries, in a 36 volt club car...were you charging them with a 36v charger? I see even more problems there.
