Default Scoared a free cart! That was on fire!! Please help

Hi Yall,

Check out my free score! I really need some help trying to figure out what to do with this thing. As you can see the batteries had caught on fire at one point and had burnt the seat and part of the body.

Option 1. Buy batteries, fix the wiring and drive it around
Option 2. Find a motorcycle engine and make over the top ridiculous.

Fix it. But I would test the motor first to see if that may have been the cause of the fire..

It looks like a resistor coil cart? Is there a row of bed springs (resistor coils) behind the battery bay?

Well my skills are only limited to my imagination. So far I have been able to build or do whatever I put my mind too. I have a few good mentors and access to Youtube

How would I test the motor. I was going to jumper it to my 12v Optima last night but ran out of time and didn't get a chance to find a schematic.

Can someone tell me how to determine if it is 36v or 48v? Or does it even matter?

Ya it has resistor coils. A few of them are burnt where they attach to a bus bar. I don't have a good picture of them.

Keep in mind this is my first cart. I know nothing about cart but I do know how to wire and am somewhat good at electronics.

Nice score! I have an '88, very easy to work on, simple design. I'm learning just like you, so i'm interested to see how it turns out

Jumpered the motor to my yellow top and it works. Works well too! The brakes are a little sticky but that's nothing unexpected.

Thanks! I can't wait to get started working on it. The sky is the limit!

Thanks Swan! Can you give me some insight on how you determined this?

In 1994 CC made solid state and resistor coil carts.
All the resistor coil carts were 36v

Coils look burnt.
Open the V glide - I bet it's burnt too


Maybe the cart was free because it needs a new amperage delivery system and batteries.
