Default 99, Workhorse 1000 - 36V

Thanks for reading - Not wanting to bore everyone with details, but I'm afraid my wife will kill me if I have to spend any more money on carts. I am unable to walk and try to run a non profit petting zoo. In the past 2 years I have bought 2 ezgo ($400.00) a yamaha 3 wheeler ($1500.00) for the purpose of feeding the animals. This last cart was bought through an auction we thought we could trust $1600.00. First, they placed the charger inside the cart, zip tied. They used it while the auction was going on. It was not the right charger and they would not stand behind it. I found some one to fix it for me ($200.00). After 2 months of no problems at all, I plugged the charger in and the wires leaving the charger receptacle all melted. The charger was not plugged into the wall. It turned out one of the screws worked it self loose and crossed over. I found a Wiring Diagram that I am willing to share with anyone who wants it. I replaced the wires needed, but now have a new problem. The cart has no speed when pressing on the petal. Some times nothing would move at all, even though power shows all the way to the motor. First of all I did not replace the ignition interlock. A local tech said it was safe and ok to just run a wire. I did place a inline fuse just in case. I believe he said it was a mercury switch. That wire went to MS2. I really can't afford putting any more money out on what my wife calls a toy. With the cost of everything going up, I now have to spend $60.00 a day to feed all the animals. I do this on a teachers salary that my take home pay has not gone up in 6 years. However, the animals won't suffer because of the economy. http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/images/smilies/help.gif Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my ezgo 1000, 36 volt w/1205 controller get up to speed? Thanks and God Bless America.

does the cart do anything? any clicking when you press the pedal and do you have a volt meter to test voltage......................................

Thanks for responding. I get a clicking noise coming from the coil. When I press on the pedal, sometimes I get a little movement but not much speed. It doesn't matter direction. I found a broken condenser (?) on the coil. It said 250 - 5v. I went to radio shack and the closest thing they had was a 220 - 20. I put it on but no luck. I do have a volt meter, but need step by step directions what to do. I have the batteries charged and get strong readings all the way back to the motor that are the same. I'm afraid I may have blown the controller, which means I'm out of luck. My wife says there just isn't any money left in the pot. If you have other thoughts, then please let me know. my school email is rbeld@lusd.net or if someone wants to call me direct I can send them my cell phone. God Bless America

i hate to say this but i agree if your getting little bits of movement you might have blown the controller.....what did the 250 amp item look like? are you surte it wasn,t the 250 amp fuse for the controller......was it a few inchs long by maybe 3/4 inch wide with openings on each end a solid peice......or was it like a resistor or diode with a clyinder shape center and wire ends........if it was the 1st one the fuse you would need the same thing and put it on see if cart works if not i would say its the controller..........good luck....................................

Unhappy Re: 99, Workhorse 1000 - 36V

Thanks Tom for everything you do for readers. It is very obvious that you care about others and that is a wonderful trait to have. It appears to a resister or diode on the coil. I have not seen a fuse prior to the controller. How do I check it to see if it works?

I was finally able to upload a wiring diagram for the workhorse 1000. I can also email it to anyone who needs it. Thanks.

P.S . Does anyone have an extra 1205 Controller they would like to donate?

the only way is to test the controller by the book or find one you can swap out just to see if it works.......the last E-Z i did with those exact symptons it was in the end the controller.....................i know with a new one they give you that 250 amp fuse so if you have to get one make certain you use the fuse it could save you a controller......we just had a member who needed a controller buy one put it on and not the fuse they ended up arching something that took out the brand new controller which would not have happened if the fuse was there.......a lot of times when the controller goes you can small it or you can take it out and shake it......if you take it out and shake it and you hear anything at all its bad.......otherwise its test it by the manual..................................

Thanks, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I met someone this weekend who has a friend that owns a shop. He is going to see if he can get me the parts I need.
