I ended up making my own harness from scratch and chitcanning all the OBC crap.. I just used the old wire harness as a template to lay out my new one, matching the OEM wire colors as much as possible.. Making a harness is not all that difficult..

Sorry about the late reply... Work has had me hoppin...

If you plan on ditching the OBC, you also have to buy a new charger.. The OBC is the "brains" for the OEM PowerDrive charger, without the OBC the charger will not operate..

I bought an aftermarket charger for "Ike" that does not require the OBC.. Ike's OEM charger was junk after being submerged in saltwater..

To eliminate the OBC in an early 48V SERIES Club Car..

Disconnect the OBC harnesses, the yellow wire to the solenoid, and the 10ga. black wires from the B- on the controller and charge receptical.. Run a 18ga. yellow wire from the solenoid ground terminal to the controller B- bus.. Run a 10ga. black wire from the fuse on the charger receptical to the B- bus on the controller.. Buy an aftermarket 48V charger and you're rid of the troublesome OBC..

Ike's top speed has dropped slightly after the addition of a top and full windshield, and a steel cargo box... He's still no slouch though.. Top speed on a fresh charge is a click over 28 MPH.. He easily bombs around the neighborhood at 25 MPH with fairly decent range.. I can get a full day's use before putting him on the charger at night..

Disconnect the red wire at the solenoid B+ terminal, the brown wire goes to the "idiot light" in the dash, and cut the gray wire off at the charger receptical..

Dayum!! Time has kinda slipped by!! Between work and family issues, I've been away too long..

Anyhoo.....

Time for an update on Ike.. He's still chuggin along without a single problem since his resurrection.. I did get him a set of new batteries last weekend.. The ones he came with finally succumbed to the salt water bath they took during the hurricane.. They had a good run, they were just over four years old, and had seen some pretty serious abuse.. He's sportin' a set of Interstates from Sam's Club now.. They're in the process of getting broken in right..

Still haven't done any paint work yet.. I'm in the process of installing a 48V to 12V DC converter to power the light kit.. The OEM light kit drawing on the last two batteries in the pack contributed to those battery's early demise.. I'll get some pics of the install up as soon as I can..

I think I'll shuffle off thru the rest of the forum now... I gots a bit of catchin' up to do!!
