Default New OBC not working

I had a bad OBC on my club car that would not run the charger correctly. In fear of ruining my batteries I replace it and now the cart won't move or charge at all. I can hear the controller do something but not the solenoid. Could it have been bypassed before I owned it.

A little more info.

The cart would run and would charge with the bad OBC. My fear was the charger would not shut off.

Did you ever try an OBC reset on your first one?

Yes, I can now drive the cart. As much as I hate to say it I left a wire disconnected. But now when I plug in the charger the needle jumps back and forth. After an install is there a trick to reset it or is my wiring wrong some where else?

What do you mean it goes back and forth?
It should at the very beginning of the charge cycle click on, then click off, then come back on and continue charging. This is the "precharge check".

. . . charging cycles can take up to 16 hours to complete . . . you may not have had a bad OBC in the first place . . .
