Key Switch - Accessory Pin
 
Hello,

On a cart with lights & two position key switch, so the back has four pins...one of these is the accessory/ignition pin for telling stuff the cart is on.

Does anyone know if there pin every reads zero or does it always have one or two Volts coming out of it, even if the cart is off.

On my switch, there are four spades. With the key off, all spades are "open" On the first position, two of the spades "close". On the second position, the other two spades "close". (The first two spades remain closed)

In the second position, the two "closed pairs" of spades do not close to each other.

That is how the switch works. What you have hooked to it would deturmine what you got for volts on the spades.

Thank you...

I have four pins also.

Pin 1: 36 volts all the time (feed from the battery)
Pin 2: 12 volts when off (switch open) and 36 volts when the key is in position one or two (switch closed)
Pin 3: around one volt or less when off (switch open) and 36 volts when the key is in position two, lights on (switch closed)
Pin 4: between one to two volts or less when off (switch open) and 36 volts when the key is in position one or two (switch closed)

I talked with ezgo this week - it is normal for the fourth pin to always have some voltage, not every really closed. There answer is I should have gone with their reducer for double the cost. Talked with MadJax, the need the ignition line to be zero....

If someone has one of these working, can they test the voltage coming out of the pins.

I am running out of ideas....

Thank you
