Default Re: 1982 36v DS Speed Control issue?

A little delayed response....lol It turns out that the master solenoid was stuck. Replaced that and all was fine, except that I did have a stuck micro-switch; the 3rd one. So it would drain the battery when sitting. Got the Micro-switch kit.

I put the switch kit in last weekend now that it is warming up a little here in NW Indiana. All wires are re-connected as in the service manual, and confirmed with pictures I took. When I press on the accelerator pedal, I can hear all of the solenoids kicking in one-by-one. However, the cart doesn't move. No forward or reverse. All batteries are at full charge. This is the only thing that I have done. Nothing changes when moving into forward or reverse.

Coincidence that the motor went bad? Any "ghost" that crops up quite often? I am going to start with my voltmeter on the motor to see if power is getting there. Any other ideas would be awesome.

And Happy Easter!

Bob

Let us know what you find with the voltmeter. A broken coil perhaps? Maybe a bad or broken connection at the motor?

Well, I got the service manual out and the voltmeter. Batteries are at a total of 38 volts..... First, all solenoids are working properly; they each kick in at the appropriate time. Ran through all of the tests on the F-N-R switch and it passed just fine. The master solenoid test was fine. 55-60 ohms resistance on the coils. Did the motor armature test and it is fine. I just cannot get any current TO the motor.

Again, the cart ran fine last fall when it was put away for the winter. All we did was change the microswitchs for the solenoids. Even took it back off the frame rail and ran them by hand.

Beats me....dang it.

I know you have checked them but a coil could have test good and just be touching good enough for the test and not a load. Just a chance.

Hmm. I guess I can get my hand back there and wiggle them. Is there any better way to test the coils other than the resistance test I did?

Don't touch them when running cart, they may bite. Just shift them side to side to make sure they are connected all the way across. With all power off.

I would probably welcome getting zapped by them, as at least I knew I had power back there!

Still haven't figured it out. I threw in the towel and am going to take it to the Club Car dealer we have here. I KNOW it is something simple, such as a wire with a break in it that I can't see, etc. I have tested everything....... Thanks for all of your help.
