if you read... i advise to confirm that the obc is bad before suggesting fixes ...
you jump in asking about a dpi charger ...
TheFlash16 said his obc is new .. and cart is not charging with 3 chargers the only 3 things that could be
1 the obc needs reset
2 the inline fuse is bad
3 is the new obc is bad
being a new obc i suggested the most common problem
then i would have him check fuse , if bad replace it ... then do the obc by pass,
if that works then new obc is bad and he needs to send it back

yes the dpi chargers are the best fix if you have not already gotten a new obc

. . . it is difficult to diagnose issues from afar . . . one must positively eliminate probable causes in some structured method, ie, is problem a battery, cart or charger issue . . . most charger issues are fixable for under $50 . . . functional used OBC's can be had for about $100/up . . . new chargers run about $200-300 . . . options are available depending on a person's desire to spend . . most advice I see offered here attempts to steer a person towards the inexpensive repair first . . . however, it is still up to the cart owner what they are willing to do . . . the OBC, when working properly, is probably the best system for the cart . . .

Tried resetting the OBC and still won't charge on any of the three chargers I have. Maybe a bad OBC from Nivel? I really don't know. Time to bypass the OBC and use a better charger. Thanks for the fast reply Crash!

check the inline fuse when you by pass the OBC


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.

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

I've talked to cart owner and she just wants a new charger anyways. Her old one was a little on the loud side. Thanks for the diagram though! I will definitely save that for later use.
Thanks again!
