"
Not to plug czonka relays but the coil on those are designed to run off a wide variety of voltages using the same coil. The one I use will run off of 32-96 volts. Somthing like that would work but its not a direct bolt-on replacement."


So where would a guy get one of those solenoids? I take it czonka is not a member(couldn't find him on the list) and if I understand you correctly this solenoid would be OK for 36 or 48 volts.
Also while I have you on the line..lol..can I cut the jumper wire on the freedom chip an run it through a switch? And if I can.... do I have to switch the "run/tow" to off before switching from freedom to any other mode? Thanks.

Roady,
A little highjacking here! As far as I know my 95CCDS48V has the original solenoid(looks old), where did you get yours? I plan on doing future upgrades, motor, controller, more volts all eventually. Sounds like the solenoid your using would be a good idea.

I am pretty sure when the cart doesn't move that the solenoid does not click. It happens so rarely that I'm not ready for it and not paying attention. I have also noticed that some times when I push the pedal it hesitates just a sec and then goes while the pedal is still down. Thanks again for the time.

You might check that hourly rate again... your pretty high

Don't know for sure about the speed chip as I have never played with one.
Look in Extreme DC for the czonka relay. Yes it will run off of 36 or 48 volts....anything from 32-96 volts will work.

Yeah...I got that from one of their customers. I don't know for sure. I know they are well liked in the area and didn't mean to sound like I was knocking them at all....my point was about saving labor costs not what Jim and Mel's charge per hour.

It varies a lot Between each state.

For example, in North Texas some places charge $85/hr and in Oklahoma some places charge $40 an hour.

Gamer, you can't cut the wires on the freedom chip. You can make it into a chip with all settings. It will go quickly down hill, but when the regen kicks in it will nearly throw you off the seat

The freedom chip I have is a female plug with only one jumper wire connecting one pin with another. Before putting the chip in it didn't have any plug at all. I am thinking why cant I cut the wire (that should put it back in the "all terrain" mode) and run the wire to a toggle switch and when the switch is on it would go into the freedom mode. Am I thinking correctly or all screwed up as usual....lol
