The diode goes on small solenoid posts. The banded end of the diode goes towards the red wire.

This was one of the first posts I saved when I got my cart and joined the forum, knowing I would eventually upgrade my controller/solenoid.

I received the goods from Scottyb Thursday and got them installed. Love it!!

Thanks for the informative post.

Good to hear it - Hard to beat that Alltrax XCT upgrade on these sepex carts

Glad I found this install how-to from the guy I bought my controller from. Waiting on the delivery...

Has Alltrax corrected the wiring diagram in the install directions yet?

When pressed on the subject Alltrax replied that they had no interest in fixing the Field wire polarity in their booklet diagram, Probably because they had a 5 mil of the booklets printed.

Field polarity is a crap shoot. Just try it and reverse it if it's backwards. No big deal!

A custom cable set would solve this challenge. I installed the Alltrax fuse between the Solenoid and the main battery + cable. I put it here because it tends to corrode when put on the battery end of the cable.
I'm on the home stretch and this is simple here, B- wire to controller B-, A1 motor to controller M-, and F1 and F2 to the terminals marked for them, all as shown in the owners manual... But wait, STOP.
If you land F1 and F2 as Alltrax shows in the install diagram the cart will go reverse in forward and forward in reverse... and driving around with that buzzer gets annoying fast. So make certain F2 is on J7, not J8 as shown in the manual.
After 2 years Alltrax is still sending this error to print
So I looked at these pics including the one that is crossed out and I can't see any difference between the pic that is crossed out and the pic to the right of it? What's the difference, just want to make sure I write it properly since apparently the directions aren't correct.

The booklet shows F1 to J7 and then F2 to J8.
Swap these 2. Connect F1 to J8 and F2 to J7
