Default Re: potentiometer

the second wire runs from the solenoid to straight to a1 it seemed redundant. the mechanic at the dealer looked at it puzzled for a second then said well its not neccessary but wouldnt hurt.

I am positive after checking all my notes and previous pictures that there was never a resistor installed between B+ and B-

what is the ohm and wattage I will get one right away. The mechanic may have overlooked this.

I am sorry to say that the markings on the resistor are not clear. Possibly 750 ohm and 55 watt ??? Not sure so research carefully. I would do away with the second cable on the solenoid.

I was under the impression from this forum that half speed reverse is not neccessary.

the reverse micro runs on twelve volt so it should be no threat to controller.

what negative affect would having the solenoid kick in straight from the key switch as opposed to running through fnr switch first be?

If I am putting something in my cart in jeopardy please explain?

I agree you need to get the factory wiring right. There is noway we can figure out the problems without having a base to start with. The factory wiring is our base.


This ant going to work. One of those two cables hooked to the selonoid has to go. One side goes to positive of battery pack the other to controller B-.
Until then good luck.
You are fighting a problem you can never solve. Once you put it back to factory I bet it works fine.

You are correct half speed reverse is not required to be hooked up.

are there any negatives to the other two micros not being hooked up. you seemed to have concern about that?

Removed second wire from solenoid only time will tell if this cures the burned out solenoid problem. I still am not sure what was the reason previous owner had it hooked that way but when I rebuilt the cart I was unable to find a schematic that matched my cart. still cant find one that includes turn signals, back up lights and such.

Default Re: potentiometer

these are not add on's

This cart came from the factory with headlights, turn signals, reverse lights, and brake lights.

several things on this cart are not regular marathon like brake pads drums and a few other items ,as I have learned through trial and error.

Do you know where I can find this schematic. 1994 model pc4x 4 seater.

Not concerned at all but as Andy pointed out it will help us get back to square one for trouble shooting. If you are not needing the turn signals, rev/ brake lights, etc. I would recommend that you do a basic rewire for head and tail lights only. This is a very simple procedure and will require you to combine all light negatives together as well as the positives and terminate them to two batteries for 12 volts.
