Yurtle if everything is sized right should there be any heating issues? My wires are they going to heat uo some?

Re: 1998 ezgo txt high speed motor
Should be just above ambient if the wires are proper size. Stock F&R is inadequate

Thanks. They are warm to the touch. I can hold them and put my hand on the f/r switch’s stud terminals. It’s suppose to be heavy duty but I ordered on line and I thinks it’s elcheapo China made.

Cart runs great. Can anyone help me out on the light statues or blink codes? Blinks green 4 times when pedal pushed then solid green till wide open throttle and turns solid red. 4 blinks is its throttle for ezgo and solid red is programming mode according to manual. What should it be? Is it learning and adjusting at wide open throttle or is something else going on?

Ok guys got reversing switch on the way from Scotty b. Also got 2 gauge wire Iím going to put on it when I get switch in. Question though. Fully charged and charger cuts off and wait for them to settle around 12 hours batteries read 38.4. Ok I can go down high way flat roads around here and the pack drops to 34.3. Ok is that a common pack voltage on ezgo with lift kit and 23 inch rims and rear back seat. Have upgraded controller and motor on it. Just curious what is a common ground on pack voltage under load. Also all batteries read level across pack so I canít find a week one and they are less than year old power trons

I assume you mean 23" tires and not rims? Actual diameter will vary, and must be measured.

Lift does NOTHING, but your 23" tires do, as far as voltage drop. How much weight you're carrying (rear seat, passengers?), slope of hill you're climbing, speed, which affects rolling resistance of tires (street or offroad, PSI) brake drag - if any - age of batteries, type motor, etc. ALL affect voltage drop.

Without rereading what you have, the better cables and reversing contactors will help some, especially since you stated you have above ambient temp on some of those items.

The best way to see if you're seeing a reasonable voltage drop is to know the amperage. Do a datalog and post it.

If so use the attached schematic from Alltrax. (Controller M- connects to motor A1)

I've not seen an Alltrax schematic showing M- connected to A2, can you post a picture of it?

This is the one I used from Alltrax and it shows M- connected to A2

Yes I meant to say tires. Yurtle how or what do you want me to post as far as a data log? I’m assuming voltages but any particular way I need to get them or different times to check the voltage?

Re: 1998 ezgo txt high speed motor
Plug a laptop into your controller and use the Alltrax Toolkit, which you can download, then drive for a short distance, and tell us if there are any hills, passengers, etc.

Folks a LOT smarter than me can look at the data the controller feeds your laptop, and determine whether your voltage drop - which is what you asked about - seems reasonable.

Need battery type and age.

All the other "crap" I mentioned were merely things that affect how hard you're pushing your cart, which affects voltage drop.

Shoot I don’t own a laptop now a days. Lol. Smart phone is all I got. I will see if I can borrow one from a buddy. Thanks and I will keep you posted!!
