Default 99 Club car will not charge

This isn't my first rodeo with this club car issue. I replaced the OBC and also tried 3 different chargers. Still doesn't work. I did a continuity check on all wires directly from the charger port itself. They all check fine. Did the positive from the port, to where it connects to the battery. Checked fine. Did the negative from the port, to the controller. Checked fine. And checked the grey wire from the port to just after the fuse, still checks out fine. The charger clicks, but does not charge..
Any help guys?? having a major headache on this one.

Thanks,
Cameron

did you try a OBC by pass ?
i would guess OBC not hooked up correctly or bad again

Can you explain how to bypass the OBC? It's a brand new OBC, directly from Nivel. it's practically impossible to hook up wrong, there's two negative wires, a plug, and then you just connect the wires to the port.

first did you reset the OBC after you installed it ?
try resetting the OBC

Resetting the Club Car On board computer - reset the OBC

To reset the OBC the following must be done in this order:

If no Tow/Run Switch then skip that step

• Key Switch to Off
• Forward/Reverse to Neutral
• Tow/Run Switch to Tow
• Disconnect the Battery NEGATIVE (–) wire from the Battery Minus terminal on the battery pack.
• Put the Tow/Run to Run
• Forward/Reverse Switch to Reverse
• Key Switch to On
• Press the throttle pedal down (hold it to the floor)

The reverse buzzer will sound and go off in about 30 seconds.
Leave the cart like that for 5 min to cause the OBC to reset.
After 5 min release the throttle pedal

To reconnect the OBC back into the system:
• Key Switch to Off
• Forward/Reverse Switch to Neutral
• Tow/Run switch to Tow
• Reconnect the Batt – wire to the battery minus
terminal on the battery pack.
• Tow/Run switch to Run
• Key Switch to ON

I'm curious, if an OBC goes out, can one simply replace the charger with a smarter unit thus negating the need for the OBC? At just under 300 bucks it seems like a better investment.

Yes, it is a better option if the OBC craps out...

Why then is that not the advice dispensed? Seems to come up often with an obvious level of frustration and tail chasing. Again. Just curious.

Because that is only the advice to give if the OBC is 100% confirmed bad. And the charger is still $285 bucks, while a new OBC runs about 200...

I've seen many times that the charger just needs a repair kit.

I'm just learning this stuff and know I would appreciate someone explaining both options. I have read so many replaced obc posts and still nothing, yet little talk of an obc removal for a few bucks more

Not a criticism just an observation as I learn more about this, I feel compelled to participate.
