Default Curtis 1204 Controller

Hey everybody. 1993 Club Car DS, 36v controller cart. Pretty much put together from frame up. Stock motor.

Cart came with Curtis 1204-015 controller. Controller bad. I have a Curtis 1204-410. Research indicates the 410 was for 1995 and later for the same cart. The 410 has only 3 bus terminals and the 015 has a fourth with 2 white wires, one coming from FNR switch, the other going to A2 on the motor. Diagram for the 410 shows only a white between FNR and A2 on motor.

Can I install this 1204-410 using only a white wire between FNR and A2?

Thanks to all replies!

I think everything else is pretty much the same.

Can't comment on the 015 vs.410. The 4th lug is for plug braking but is not necessary if the cart is stopped before switching directions. A lot of carts out there without plug braking. The only reason I ordered my controller with it was because I had visions of my grandsons trying to pop a wheelie.

Thanks tag. That's what research said. Of course, to my knowledge, these carts had no "braking" from the controller. Perhaps they did. I thought it had something to do with industrial applications for the same controller that would stop a forklift from running out of control downhill. I suppose I (stupidly) thought from the Curtis Diagrams that "braking" had something to do with slowing the cart going downhill.

What an idiot I am when it comes to terminology sometimes. Thank you.

As far as I know it has nothing to do with regen. braking. As I understand it, it is a carry-over from forklifts. In my forklift jockey days, we did a lot of speed shifts during the 3 point turns.

Yes. I understand that Tag. And these carts have pure mechanical brakes that are in no way connected to the motor. I thought it may somehow have stopped/reduced motor RPM in certain situations. That was the only conclusion I could come up with.

Stupid? Yes. I associated it with industrial applications for stopping a runaway vehicle, (forklift etc) when it really only means (I think) preventing somebody from slamming F/R rapidly. Is that correct?

Wire it as the A2 lug isn't there. White FNR to motor A2 (if you have stock colored wires still)
