Default Re: 2008 Club Car dies intermittently

Have not tried a new solenoid. Just trying to narrow it down a little beforehand. Really strange because it has been good for almost a month and I have been on some fairly long rides.

Solenoids are relatively cheap, cost wise. I have had carts in the past, that had issues somewhat like you are describing. After pulling my hair out, and once I knew for sure the batteries were good, I changed the solenoid. Many times that was the fix I needed.

If you ever get a chance to look inside one, you will see where the bottom of the large contacts get pitted,and sometimes the juice will get thru the carbon/ pits, and sometimes not.

I think D&D motors website has an awesome detailed section with pictures of the solenoids and resistors, etc.

The solenoid should not click twice should it? It should click once and the cart moves and then I assume it clicks again when you let off the pedal to break the circuit. This one is clicking 2 times each time. One immediately after the other. Also like I said in weird pedal positions.

Do you know how to bypass your mcor, using a paperclip?

I was going to say, my ds did something like this. Hit the juice & would move then stop. It would do it again & 3rd try ran fine. Stop for a while then started all over. Be going then jerky a few times. Searched & came up with 2 solutions,the paper clip test & put in run mode, turn key on leaving in neutral & stand on go pedal. I never got around to the paper clip, the neutral thing proved to work every time. Lead me to mcor. I contacted Tahoe Dawg & being the cool dude he is he hooked me up w/the part # for the mcor4 & conversion kit for the 05, I had it in hand 1 hr later. Put it on this afternoon & now its fixed. Hope this helps.

I think I understand the paperclip test. Take the 2 pin connector off the mcor and short across it. Should engage the solenoid. Pressing the pedal should then vary the speed I would assume? It will jack it up and give it a try. If shorting the connector always works but the clicking microswitch does not then it is a mcor problem?

Curtinaround what is the neutral thing you are talking about? Don't understand that one.

Ok I did the paper clip test. When the paper clip is in the 2 pin mcor connector and I press go the wheels always turn and speed up as the pedal is depressed. When the 2 pin connector is plugged in the mcor they do not turn or they try to turn. I assume this means there is a problem with the microswitch side of the mcor or could it be something else? I am including a picture of the mcor if anyone has a good used one or knows the best place to get one. Thanks again

Just drove it with paper clip. Seems mcor is the problem for sure.

I've been looking for the post but I can't find it. I don't know what is in the mcor but it said turn key on, leave in neutral & hit accelerator for a few seconds. If the cart goes as normal its the mcor. Sorry I couldn't find the post. I think I'll take a look inside the old mcor to see whats inside.
