Default How to convert cart to 3 wire 48v charging

I am sure this has been covered but could find any answer with the search function or I am just not using the correct combination of words

I have upgraded my resistor cart to an electronic 48 volt cart. i bought a 48 volt charger but didnt realize it is 3 wire. Is there a way to convert my cart (not the charger) to accept the 3 wire and have the automatic shut off of the charger work too?

Thanks for the help

I don't think you're going to be able to make a 48 volt stock charger work unless you have an OBC (on board computer) on your cart. There has to be a way around it, I'm sure others will be along shortly.

I'll go ahead and put this out there cause I know it'll come up: scottyb sells DPI chargers that are said to be the best charger out there. They don't need an OBC to operate.

I hope there is a way to modify the cart or the charger to be automatic so i don't over charger the batteries

There was a conversion kit produced for these chargers. I don't know who carries them but they are available. Add to the cost either a new cord end or cart receptacle.... and you might want to sell what you have and get the right 48v charger.

If this is what you mean, then Golf Cart King has them.

http://www.golfcartking.com/mobile/P...ductCode=30931

You'd still need a receptacle that fits your charger for the cart though.

EDIT: I'm mobile, so in case that link doesn't work just go to Golfcartking.com and look under chargers and parts, then Club Car Chargers, then it's a blue box and its called an in charger OBC or something like that.

No the plug for the 36v won't work. You still need the round 48v receptacle
