The Club Car OBC system is great when it works, but when it malfuncitons, it can be a real pain in the as* and costly.
I am going to say bad OBC; let's see if anyone else chimes in before you go and get a new one.

Thats what I was figuring but guess I wanted a second opinion from a more educated source on a golf cart than me before I spent that $175! Thanks for your help!

Default Re: Charging problem

try a obc bypass it will tell you if obc is bad

to by pass OCB
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK.…do not attempt unless you are familiar with electricity and electronics!
There are two ways to force the charger to turn on regardless of the OBC.

The first method is to disconnect the cart’s gray wire at the fuse near the charger receptacle. Then using a jumper wire, connect the receptacle side of the fused connector to the cart’s negative battery terminal. This will energize the charger’s 48V relay. If the charger doesn’t come on, it could be bad connections, wiring or charger relay.
if charger comes on and starts to charge obc may be bad

The second method is to open the charger and remove the 120V wires from the relay and jump these together. This totally bypasses the relay and the OBC wire.


(If charger comes on but the charger ammeter shows 0 amps, check the fuse at the charging receptacle under the clear plastic cover.)

Both of these methods should both be temporary measures for troubleshooting, or as an emergency method of charging the batteries when they have been discharged so far that the OBC will not charge them.

The OBC provides the optimum method of charging the cart’s batteries. If the OBC is bad, it should be replaced

Thanks so much!! I will try that this evening!! Is there any other thing that could cause the charger to come on at a delay like that? When the charger has worked it showed charging and was warm to the touch so I figured it was doing its part but the obc may be going bad or something else? I really do appreciate the help!!

like jake said it does a self test but should stay on after that .. also the batteries being to low for obc to kick on may be a factor .. park it, plug it in, is a good thing to do ... if you plug it in let it turn its self off ..

. . . just for the heck of it, spray some WD40 into the charger receptacle before you plug in the charger next time . . .

Resetting the OBC
I am just curious, what would be an indication or indications that the OBC would need a reset?
