Low Voltage Motor Check Series Wound (no controller)

This test uses 1 or 2 of the batteries of the battery pack, A few jumper wires and the motor mounted to the golf car axle. (Keeping the motor attached to the axle is necessary as most of today’s golf car motors only have a single bearing.)

Low Voltage Motor Check for series wound motor (no controller)

  1. Turn car off, remove key, jack up car so rear wheels are off the ground.
  2. Carefully remove all cabling from motor. It’s always a good idea to mark where each cable was connected to motor.
  3. If you have a Switchable EMP motor, add jumper from LR1 to LR2Connect a jumper as shown in Fig C to motor. (Actual terminal locations may vary slightly.)

  4. Connect a jumper as shown in Fig C to motor. (Actual terminal locations may vary slightly.)
  5. Bring power from one of the batteries as shown in Fig. C
  6. Make/Break connection by tapping “A” and “B” wires. Speed should be slow, but if motor moves, your system problems probably lie elsewhere.
