Default Re: Dead G29 after swapping batteries

I'm not at the cart now. I'll be back there tomorrow. There are 4 wires per post. 1- main cable, 2-dash DVM, 3-voltage reducer, 4-charger receptacle.

Prior to removing the old pack I ziptied the 4 together. I'm wondering if I swapped the 4positive for the 4 negative ones.

Would the picture I posted show negative voltage if I had done that?

You should have a thin wire from pack + to Solenoid + (small terminal) You should have a thin wire from pack minus to controller minus.

Well that would explain it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll find those wires and hook em up.

Stay tuned,

No such luck on me simply missing some small wires.

Today I did find a problem. It may not be the only problem, but it definitely is a problem that would explain a dead cart.

There is no G29 wiring diagram in the stickies, but I got one from Alltrax. On that diagram there is a very short line that indicates there is a red wire between the large positive terminal on the solenoid and the run/tow switch. In reality there is a lot of stuff between the red wire on the solenoid and the red wire on the run/tow switch.

Using a razor blade I've been doing surgery on a lot of the corrugated wire conduit in order to trace the wire. I started from the solenoid. I found a 3 amp fuse that was blown. I replaced the fuse and still nothing. So I kept tracing the wire. Eventually I came to a snap connector that is up under the dash. It has a red wire and a black wire. The red wire was so badly corroded that the wire had broken out of the connector. I'm optimistic that once I replace that connector the cart will work again.

Wish me luck.

Wow that sucked.

I celebrated too soon. I proclaimed success when the laptop was able to see the pack voltage. (Which surprisingly was 1/2 V lower than the actual pack voltage per the dash mounted DVM.)

I then took the cart down off blocks and tried to drive it. It will move at about one nano-mile-per-hour and it makes a noise like clug-clug-clug-clug really rapidly.

Based on the corrosion I found on that plug earlier I'm sure there are corroded connections all over the place. (This cart lives within 100 yds of the ocean.) I've checked all the connections of the major cables, but as I learned today there are miles of small guage stuff throughout the YDRE. I don't have a clue where to start.

I've not really used the Alltrax software before. Can I use it to debug what's going on?

Also, I think the 3a fuse was to be replaced by a 10a fuse... I'm sure it was with prior alltrax controllers.

I didn't have a spare 3a. After rummaging in the pile-o-junk I came up with a 4a and a 10a. I used the 4a. Prior to swapping out the batteries the cart ran fine with the 3a fuse. I kinda doubt that is the problem, but I'll swap it for a 10a tomorrow.

Thanks CG.

When the solenoid is not engaged, the pack voltage reads low on the Alltrax Application so that is normal. You should have seen the key switch on in the App also.
