96 Club Car jerks

96 Club Car jerks

Postby Weeber » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:02 pm

I have a 96 48 Volt cart that jerks (loses power intermittently,then regains it). It runs OK on pavement but as soon as I hit any bumps it will jerk. I have load tested my new batteries (jacked up cart and tested each one for voltage drops, all within .01 V of each other, while depressing throttle). I have removed and cleaned every connection, bats, motor,solenoid, controller. I removed the potentiometer and found the big black wire had a wear spot on the protective covering, thought I had it fixed but I was wrong. Tested micro switch in potentiometer for continuity while shaking it(simulating bumps.... I'm desperate) and it was fine. Being that rough terrain seems to trigger this issue I keep thinking its a wire or something. When I had the cart jacked up I tapped on the controller to try and trigger the jerking but couldn't, any help would be greatly appreciated before I start switching out $500 parts only to find out it doesn't help! Thanks!!

I would guess solenoid I would take two led's with resistors one on each side of the main terminals if one led drops out solenoid is bad

Thanks for the help, greatly appreciated, but you will have to explain in detail your possible fix or troubleshoot is(I'm electrically illiterate to a point)

Its not the solenoid and that would be a very complicated one to check it.

96 car is going to a Vglide, and the chances are that the contacts are dirty, the moveable contact is pitted/worn out, or you have a bad resistor. In that order.

Thanks, I've cleaned the resistors but didn't check the moveable one for pitting, any way of checking resistors. Thanks again!

Checked v-glide again, everything seems fine. If a resistor was bad would it not just jerk when the movable arm passes over that contact? Also, I mentioned that when the cart is driven on bumpy terrain, that is when it jerks.Any more help would be appreciated, Thanks to everyone
