If the solenoid is rated for 36V, run it on 36V.. It's not going to hurt a thing.. Keeping the control circuit at pack voltage also make troubleshooting easier.. A 36V solenoid will more than likely "drop out" when run on 24V when a heavy load is applied to the pack.. Also the solenoid's amp draw will be higher on 24V..

Not trying to be a smart azz... But quit trying to re-invent the wheel.. Decades of refinement have determined what works best on these type of electrical control systems..

Default Re: another, where does it go?

i appreciate it.. but isnt that the point to asking questions??? to gain knowledge and understanding??? and im not trying to be a smart azz myself but if everyone always knocked someone for asking questions or trying something different, then we would never get anywhere.. just beacause something is done a certain way doesnt always mean its the best way... shoot im talking about an old azz golf cart.. if this way worked soooo well then why dont they keep making em like this??? in fact they dont make em anything like this.. no offense or anything.. but thank u i understand... and the whole reason to asking the first question is because when i got the cart it had no wires, so i honestly had no idea where any wires went and well lets face it, those wiring diagrams are not all that great.. plus i plan on eliminating the igniton switch and going a different route, as means of anti theft...the ignition if u choose to call it that, will be activated wirelessly.. so only the person with the remote will be able to drive the cart..the reason for the 2nd question is simple i have X amount of relays i want to use and was wondering if i could getaway with them, come to find out , nope i cant thanx to u... soo now i know i have to go get X amount more of relays..

but thank u i understand again im not trying to be a smart azz either.. just thinking outside the box...

Whoa...Whoa...Whoa... I'm all for thinking outside the box.. If you would have included some of this additional info in your first post you might have gotten the answers you wanted sooner...

With that said.... What voltage/amperage are your relays rated to handle across the load contacts??? More than likely you'll be able to run 36VDC thru the contacts, while using 24V to activate the relay..

Default Re: another, where does it go?

well the thing is im using a wireless controller that only puts out a -600ma pulse.. i have to use relays to convert it to a + pulse.. i then wire 4 12v 30a/40a relays in conjunction with each other so i can then turn the pulse signal into a constant signal...each pack(4 12v relays) needs 12v in and puts out 12v... with that said, i would undoubtedly need 3 packs perse to get my 36v to fully activate and hold the solenoid open... I believe, im still working that part though my head.. I THINK i might be able to get away with 2 packs(24v) but that may be a trial and error deal...
