Default Re: 48 Volt Conversion

Do the digital ones jump around when you give the cart throttle or do they give a pretty constant reading? I was thinking about just cutting a wider hole in my dash from the vertical display and installing one of those. I just haven't heard much about them and definitely have never seen one where I live.

They move with throttle because that is the correct voltage once they have a load, but once you stop they are steady.

Thanks, I think I will go with something like that. I definitely like how it looks with the silver plate around it. The way mine is wired right now it has one wire going directly from the indicator to the last negative terminal on the pack and one wire to the keyswitch. Then a separate wire goes from the keyswitch to the large post of the solenoid that connects to the first positive battery on the pack. Could I wire this one that way and get an accurate reading?

Yes the wire to the key switch (if it is a 3 wire) is only to turn it on. The other 2 wires are wired directly to the batteries.
If it is a 2 wire the negative will still go to the same battery and the +48 will come from the key switch.

I know I could use a new dash, but as far as the meter goes I got it in and it looks great. Just need to buy the new batteries now and hopefully see the results
