Where is OBC located? 2006 DS Club Car 48 Volt
 
:help: I am really glad to have found this forum. I have learned a lot from reading a LOT of your posts. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge. We have had this cart for almost 3 years with no problems but now I am ready to tear out my hair.

I have charging problems and have been scouring this forum for help. Plug charger in, charger buzzes for couple of seconds & circuit breaker pops. I tried the OBC reset but nothing happened, no buzzer sound.... nada, zip, nuttin. I tried the charger relay bypass with no success. Same results as before... charger buzzed for couple of seconds & circuit breaker popped. SO, need to try the OBC bypass and I found the instructions on how to do that but I cannot find the OBC. Any ideas? I need to know where it is in case we have to replace it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you take off the access panel on the back under the basket, it should be to the left on the northern wall

The OBC won't make the breaker trip, the problem is with the charger. Likely to be the rectifier or the diode pack depending on which charger you have.

Thanks Golfdog ... that eases my mind on the OBC.. those are not cheap. I have the Power Drive 2 charger 22110-11 shows date code 24/7 - I saw a repair kit on eBay that has bridge rectifier, circuit breaker, 48V power relay, thermal paste and installation instructions for about $25..... do you think this might take care of the problem? Hate to spend a few hundred for a charger if a $25 kit will work. Times are tough, ya know?

I didn't realize you had a 4 seater. The basket is near the backside of the seatback.

CCFanatic, I guess I should have put that tidbit (4 seater) in my post but the truth is that I did not know that any golf cart had baskets. Told you guys that I learned a lot on this site. This is my first golf cart. My yard is a 5 acre plot of ground and my disability restricts my walking ability, so the golf cart is more of a necessity for me than anything else. When I saw it in the showroom, I knew right away it was the one for me. It is hot pink and white and some folks call it the Barbiemobile. Yep, I have had a lot of teasing bout it but I love it. It is definitely identifiable. :-)

That's ok, I learned a lot from this site as well.

UPDATE - just wanted to let you all know that the parts arrived and I repaired the charger. Plugged it all up and it worked like a charm! :-) Then, on the first ride, the cart quit. :cry: It was disappointing to say the least; however........... after looking at everything we found that one of the battery cables has an issue. New battery cable connector fixed the problem.

Thanks again for all the advice. You guys saved us a trip to the repair shop and we all know that those trips are not cheap. Have an awesome day!
