From the Fault counter Hour meter ; Main contactor did not close 0.4, Throttle wiper 0.3, Brake wiper 0.3 HPD Sequencing fault 0.4, Undervoltage cutback 0.3,Controller overcurrent 0.3, Motor temp fault 0.3, Stall detected/Enconder fail 0.4, E M Brake failed to set 0.4 , EM brake coil missing 0.3, Main coil missing 0.3, EM Brake test failed 0.4, Throttle zero check 0.4 , Supervisor comms 0.3 .
Under the Input heading ; Brake command reads 0-100% on depressing the brake pedal. On the Output heading; EM Brake PWM reads 0% on depressing the pedal.

I hope this makes some sense to those that have helped me so far?
As I write I am going to carry on "playing with the Hand Held" to see if I can find a pattern to track this fault down.

Thanks again .

Wow! What a list. From what I can see, you had a grocery list of errors at 0.3 hours that have been logged and are no longer an issue. These were likely caused by your testing, so they are mostly to be ignored in progressing onward.

It looks like the HPD Sequencing Fault is being initiated by a Throttle Zero check error. From that point, it's looking like the EM Brake output is being kept turned off, resulting in further motor brake related errors. The Main Contactor failed to close would indicate a bad solenoid, as the Main Coil Missing error count ceased at 0.3 hours. yet the Main Contactor failed to close count continued to 0.4 hours. This signals that the internal controller sensor monitoring the solenoid coil is sensing the coil as being there and operating, but the contacts are not closing to allow power to flow from the batteries to B+.

In short, take a meter to the controller B+ and check that when the solenoid clicks on, that full battery voltage appears on that terminal. Also, check again the reliabillity of the throttle zero switch closure. Also, read the current hour clock and see if it has passed beyond the 0.4 hour setting.

In short, I wish I were there to assist you in this endeavor.

Many thanks Bob,
It may be a relief to you that I have to take a short break from this project for a few days.
As soon as I can I will take up your input and advice. I am determined to cure this with your help. As it has been running I am sure it can be sorted.
Many thanks for now.

Not a problem. Whenever you are ready to resume, I am here to help.

Hi to Bob Boyce ,CG and all,

After a long lay off and getting not very far, I ran out of idea's and put the buggie into the hands of the local EZGO agent. I have received this on my 2011 RXV. They have so far spent three hours on my machine.

"Wiring checked and changed solenoid to 2012 spec. Start up sequence initiated.1/4 turn in each direction not present. Electrical test on motor OK (Fault mechanical)?
Power to brake ok. Able to push buggie when turned on in Forward (should not be able to do this). Recommend trying a good known motor".

I have not yet had a conversation with the Tech on the above but I have just about had it on this project.
I have re done the loom ala Bob Boyce and his kindly guidence. A new Curtis controller and what was I thought the right solenoid along with a new Motor brake.
Even with having aquired a nice new shiny hand held diagnostic tool,has not allowed me,of limited electical skills to work this one out?
I just cannot afford the time and more expense of getting a new motor now to find that I still have a "lemon" sitting in my garage.
The other thing is I am moving out to Canada at the end of summer so I will be leaving this "dud" behind now.

For anyone reading this in the UK, I would advise you NOT to go near anything RXV like the plague. If like me you thought fixing up a buggie would be a good project ,try another type, would be my advice!

Seems like I am going to have to give this one up for sale as spares and admit defeat!

Many thanks to all those who have attempted to help and assist ,(Bob) for instance.

Regards to all (for now)

I'm sad to hear of the result of the shop evaluation. It sure sounds like you may have a shorted EM Brake FET in the new controller. A re-assignment of the motor brake FET to another unused FET could resolve that via a parameter reconfiguration and the swapping of a wire at the controller connector. I can't blame you for getting disgusted though. The move to Canada will probably be a welcome break for you. Please keep in touch my friend.

Bob
