Default Re: Club Car Questions . .

I'm not sure because I haven't looked at it in a while - but I want to say it's probably 16 - 18 amps output. The batteries are as old as the cart (2002) and are a little beat up but still hold a charge well. I was not aware of the low voltage charge prevention, my total voltage is now like 24 volts (4 per battery). That could be the problem, but I think the very low battery power was more likely caused by all of my attempts to get it going again. I'm also guessing it's the OBC that's shot. I think I'll just bypass it. Any suggestions as to length of time to charge or dangers involved with having no computer? (overcharging I guess, but I'm not sure how long that would take) Any thoughts appreciated. Thank You.

I have checked every single fuse. All are still good. Any idea what polarity I should short that little grey wire to to start the charger?

don,t touch the grey wire if its tight in the receptical......leave it alone.......if your voltage is 24 volts your charger isn,t going to come on unless you bypass the with charger unplugged from both AC and DC open the charger up.........on the rear of the circuit breaker there are 2 black wires hooked up and one of them is only a few inches long and goes to a small black relay unhook that wire from the circuit breaker and tape the end up so it dosn,t touch anything........than the tan wire from the transformer its a thicker wire unplug that and plug it in to the circuit breaker where you took the small black wire off.........VIOLA........your low voltage sensor is bypassed now you can either put the cover back on the charger or leave it off...................plug the charger into the wall and than into the cart and it should start charging............leave it charge for 5 hours or so and check your voltage if its over 38 volts than reverse what you did to bypass sensor and put cover back on charger but if its not over 38 volts plug it back in to cart until it is, once you have enough voltage hook charger wires back where they should be and plug charger back into cart if the charger works your done you just had low battery voltage but if the charger still dosn,t work than your OBC is bad and should be replaced.........if the cart runs and just won,t charge you can leave the charger bypassed but it will never shut off so you run the risk of overcharging the batteries and toasting them......I RECCOMEND YOU REPLACE YOUR OBC............its just not a good idea not to and you can get a new OBC for the price of 2 batteries, the problem with your charger not shutting off is your always guessing is my cart fully charged or did i overcharge it or even forgetting you plugged it please understand bypassing the sensor is not meant to be a permanant fix at what you find out........................
