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)
- Turn car off, remove key, jack up car so rear wheels are off the ground.
- Carefully remove all cabling from motor. It’s always a good idea to mark where each cable was connected to motor.
- 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.)
- Connect a jumper as shown in Fig C to motor. (Actual terminal locations may vary slightly.)
- Bring power from one of the batteries as shown in Fig. C
- Make/Break connection by tapping “A” and “B” wires. Speed should be slow, but if motor moves, your system problems probably lie elsewhere.
