RECTIFIER (SCR) CIRCUIT
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
The silicon controlled rectifier (SCR), located inside the onboard computer, acts as a switch on the negative
side of the circuit.
This allows the onboard computer (OBC) to control the battery charging current.
Use the following procedure to test the SCR:
1. With batteries connected and using a multimeter set to 200 volts DC, place the red (+) probe on the positive post of battery no. 1 and place the black (–) probe on the charger receptacle socket that has the
black 10-gauge wire attached to it. The reading should be approximately 36-42 volts.
2. If the reading is zero volts, check the black 10-gauge wire connection to the OBC connector. Check the
continuity of the black 10-gauge wires. If the wires and connections are okay, the SCR has failed.
Replace the OBC. If the reading is correct, proceed to the following step.
3. Plug in AC and DC cords. When the battery charger relay clicks on, reading should be approximately 48
volts (full battery voltage). If the reading does not rise from approximately 40 volts to full battery voltage
when the DC cord is plugged in and the relay clicks on, check the following items:

Page 11-38
2005 Precedent IQ System Electric Golf Car Maintenance and Service Manual
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND TESTING
Communication Display Module (CDM)
• F1 – Battery voltage:
This displays the battery pack’s current state of charge. A reading of less than 48 volts indicates that
the batteries need to be charged. If a reading of less than 48 volts is obtained immediately after a
charge cycle, there may be a problem in the charge circuit.
• F2 – Energy units removed since last charge cycle:
If the display reads over 75 (the vehicle battery warning light should be illuminated), the vehicle batteries need to be recharged before being used again. This data can be used to make sure all vehicles in a
fleet receive equal usage on a short-term basis.
• F3 – Total accumulated energy units removed since initial vehicle start-up:
This information is most useful in making sure that all vehicles in a fleet receive equal usage over long
periods of time.
• F4 – Last charge termination type (1 = incomplete, 2 = DVDT, 4 = normal, 8 = max. timer):
A 1, 2, 4, or 8 will be displayed.
1 – Indicates the last charge cycle was incomplete and the batteries were not fully charged. Batteries
should be charged again at the earliest opportunity.
2 – Indicates a back-up charge program was employed by the OBC to complete the charge cycle. A
DVDT charge may be displayed the first few times a new set of batteries is charged, and the first time
a set of batteries is charged after the batteries have been disconnected and reconnected. A problem
may exist if persistent DVDT readings are obtained.
4 – Indicates the last charge cycle was normal.
8 – Indicates the charger ran for sixteen hours and shut itself off without completing the charge cycle.
This means there may be a problem in the charge circuit.
The CDM also has a low battery indicator, which illuminates when CDM batteries are weak and need to be
replaced. Weak batteries in the CDM may cause the CDM to register inaccurate information or no information.
USING THE CDM TO RETRIEVE DATA FROM THE ONBOARD COMPUTER
1. Turn the CDM ON.
2. Position CDM on seat bottom so it is aligned directly with the battery warning light. Ensure CDM infrared
LED receiver is pointed at battery warning light and there is a clear path between them. See following
NOTE.
NOTE: If, by positioning CDM on seat bottom, the CDM is unable to collect the data stream from the
onboard computer, hold CDM approximately 6 inches (15.2 cm) from battery warning light.
3. Wait approximately 30 seconds for a value to appear in the display window.
4. If a value does not appear in the display window after 30 seconds, try adjusting the aim of the CDM and
repeating step 3 until a value appears. If there is still no reading, check for weak batteries in the CDM.
4.1. Adjust aim of CDM.
4.2. Drive vehicle a short distance to ensure OBC is not in powerdown mode.
4.3. Check for weak batteries in CDM.
4.4. If reading is still not obtained, go to the CDM Troubleshooting Guide on page 11-40.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The batteries supplied with an electric Club Car vehicle are different from those supplied with an automobile.
The outward appearance of these two batteries is similar, but the operating characteristics are very different.
The Club Car electric vehicle battery is a deep-cycle battery, and the automotive battery is a “starting, lighting
and ignition” (SLI) battery. They should never be substituted for one another.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
ý WARNING
• To prevent electrolyte leakage from the battery vents, batteries must be kept in an upright
position. Tipping a battery beyond a 45° angle in any direction can allow a small amount of
electrolyte to leak out the vent hole. Do not exceed this 45° angle when lifting, carrying, or
installing batteries. Battery acid can cause severe personal injury to skin or eyes, and can
damage clothing.
1. Before removing batteries, note the orientation of the batteries and the connecting wires. Disconnect the
battery cables as instructed. See WARNING “To avoid unintentionally starting...” in General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1. Remove remaining wires and batteries. See Wiring Diagrams, Section 11,
Page 11-2.
2. Visually inspect the new batteries for any damage that may have occurred in transit.

4. Check and clean the battery rack and hold-downs. The nuts and bolts on the hold-downs may corrode.
It is therefore advised they be cleaned periodically and replaced as necessary.
5. Install batteries in the proper orientation (Figure 13-1, Page 13-2). Install battery hold-downs. The holddowns should be tight enough so batteries do not move while vehicle is in motion, but not so tight as to
crack or buckle battery case. Tighten to 97.4 in-lb (11 N·m), alternating between hold-down bolts.
6. Install wires in proper sequence (Figure 13-1, Page 13-2). Install black wire to negative post of battery
no. 4 last. Make sure all connections are tight. Tighten to 110 in-lb (12.4 N·m). Coat all terminals with Battery Terminal Protector Spray (CCI P/N 1014305) to minimize future corrosion.
7. Give the batteries a full charge prior to operation. This ensures all the batteries are fully charged and the
cells are equalized prior to use.
BATTERY CARE
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
To keep batteries in sound operating condition, follow these steps on a regular basis.
1. Any corrosion build-up on or around batteries should be removed immediately. Terminal connections should
be clean and tight. Any frayed or worn wires should be replaced. After all cables have been connected, coat
all terminals with Battery Terminal Protector Spray (CCI P/N 1014305) to help prevent future corrosion.

BATTERIES
Battery Care
2. Batteries should be clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution of
baking soda and water (1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water). Rinse solution off batteries. Do not allow this solution to enter the batteries. Be sure terminals are tight. Let the terminals dry
and then coat them with Battery Terminal Protector Spray (CCI P/N 1014305). See Self-Discharge on
page 13-3.
3. Maintain proper electrolyte level. See Electrolyte Level on page 13-3.
4. Batteries should be properly charged every day they are used. Check the batteries periodically to see
that they are in a full state of charge. See Battery Charging on page 13-4.
5. Keep hold-downs tight. See Vibration Damage on page 13-4.
SELF-DISCHARGE
Contaminants on dirty batteries can provide a path for a small current draw that can slowly discharge batteries, thus wasting valuable energy. To prevent self-discharge, batteries should always be kept clean.
Hot weather also has an effect on a battery’s self-discharge rate. The higher the temperature, the quicker a
set of batteries will discharge. In hotter climates, batteries should be checked more often. When storing batteries, keep in a cool place. See Battery Storage on page 13-12.

charging, fill with water to the level indicator. Filling a battery to the level indicator before charging will result
in overfilling because the electrolyte level will rise during charging and some of the electrolyte may bubble out
of the cap. This reduces the battery’s capacity and corrodes the metal parts around it.

Electrolyte Level, Continued:
The electrolyte level should be checked weekly to be sure electrolyte is at its proper level (Figure 13-2,
Page 13-3). Never allow the electrolyte level to fall below the tops of the plates because this will cause the
exposed part of the plate to become permanently inactive. For best results, use a battery watering gun to add
water to batteries. Check the electrolyte level more frequently in hot weather or when batteries are old.
MINERAL CONTENT
For the longest battery life, use distilled water in batteries. However, if tap water is to be used, be sure the mineral contents are below these levels:

VIBRATION DAMAGE
The battery hold-downs should always be tight enough to keep the battery from bouncing. Battery life may be
severely shortened if the battery hold-downs are too loose. Battery hold-downs should be tightened to 97 in-lb
(11 N·m). Excessive vibration causes the plates to shed prematurely and shortens the life of the battery. It
may also cause acid to leak out of the vent caps and corrosion to build up on surrounding metal parts. The
acid which is lost reduces the capacity of the battery and cannot be replaced. Battery hold-downs should NOT
be so tight as to crack or buckle the battery case. This may cause leaks which would dry out a cell or cause
internal short circuits. See Battery Replacement on page 13-1.
BATTERY CHARGING
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
The charger supplied with the Club Car electric vehicle resolves the most common problems associated with
battery charging. Undercharging and overcharging are prevented provided the charger is allowed to shut off
by itself. Also, all cells are automatically given an equalization charge at low current, which prolongs battery
life. Batteries should never be left in a discharged state, as this too affects the internal components and can
reduce the capacity of the battery. The batteries should be charged every day they are used. However, the
batteries should not be charged if they have not been used.
Page 13-4
2005 Precedent IQ System Electric Golf Car Maintenance and Service Manual
BATTERIES
Battery Charging
CHARGER SHUTS OFF AFTER 16 HOURS
This may be due to 1) new batteries, 2) hard use, or 3) cold temperatures. A catch-up charge may be necessary when these conditions are present. On those days when all or some of the vehicles do not get used,
check the batteries for state of charge. Any battery with a specific gravity lower than 1.250 will need a catchup charge. If the problem continues after a catch-up charge has been performed, check the battery charger.
See Section 14 – Battery Charger.
DEEP-DISCHARGE
Never discharge batteries to the point the vehicle will no longer operate. This will considerably shorten the
cycle life of the batteries, and may permanently damage the batteries. It is possible the batteries will not
accept a charge if they are completely discharged. The deeper the discharge, the harder it is on the batteries.
For this reason, it is recommended that Club Car electric vehicle batteries be charged after each use (provided the charge cycle will not be interrupted and the charger will be allowed to shut off automatically). Placing
the batteries on charge after each use reduces the depth of discharge and prolongs battery life.
EARLY EXCESSIVE DISCHARGING
When vehicle batteries are new, they do not reach their full capacity until they have been used and recharged
20 to 50 times. If they are excessively discharged early in their life, their effective service life will be shortened.
It is advisable to limit the use of any vehicle with new batteries for at least the first four weeks and then gradually increase their range.
INCOMING AC SERVICE
Make sure the incoming AC line service is sufficient. If circuit breakers are tripping, fuses blow during the night
or the charger does not give the required starting rate when sound batteries are put on charge, an AC line
problem exists. The electrical service to the vehicle storage facility should be sufficient to deliver adequate
voltage and current to each charger with all the chargers turned on. If not, consult your local power company
or electrical contractor. See Section 14 – Battery Charger.
FLEET ROTATION
Rotate vehicle usage. It is very hard on batteries if the last vehicles in at night are the first ones out in the
morning. Spread the workload evenly, giving all vehicles the same amount of use. This will keep your fleet in
balance and will not overwork certain sets of batteries.
NOTE: When vehicles are being rotated, the Club Car CDM (Communication Display Module) can be a
very helpful service tool. Monitoring the value of function 3 with the CDM simplifies vehicle usage
scheduling. See Communication Display Module (CDM), Section 11, Page 11-38.
NUMBERING VEHICLES AND CHARGERS
Return the vehicles to the same charger each night if possible. If the vehicles are put in a storage facility at
random and a vehicle dies while in use and testing shows the batteries are sound, then the problem is most
likely with the charger. However, finding the problem charger may prove to be quite time consuming. Numbering the vehicles and the chargers and returning each vehicle to its designated charger each night can significantly reduce the amount of time spent troubleshooting a problem.

BATTERY TESTING
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
Four tests have been developed to help diagnose problems with batteries that have not performed as
expected. Because each test becomes progressively more detailed and time-consuming, begin with the first
test and follow through with the other tests until the problem has been identified as outlined in the Battery
Troubleshooting Chart (Figure 13-3, Page 13-6).
BATTERY CHARGER TEST
The easiest way to monitor the condition of a vehicle’s batteries is simply to observe the reading on the battery
charger ammeter at the end of the charge cycle. After a full charge, disconnect the charger DC plug, wait 20
to 30 seconds and reconnect the charger DC plug. The ammeter needle will jump to 15 amps or more and
then taper to below 6 amps within 10 to 20 minutes, indicating sound, fully charged batteries.
Continued poor performance may indicate a problem in the vehicle electrical system, brakes or battery
charger. If the problem is not found in the vehicle or charging system, proceed to the on-charge voltage test.
Batteries that remain at 8 amps or higher should be tested further using the on-charge voltage test.
ON-CHARGE VOLTAGE TEST
When the batteries are fully charged, disconnect the charger DC plug. Wait 20 to 30 seconds and reconnect
the DC plug to restart the charger. After 5 minutes, use a multimeter to check and record the voltage of the
battery set as well as the individual batteries. Set the multimeter to 200 volts DC. Place the red (+) probe on
the positive (+) post of battery no. 1 and the black (–) probe on the negative (–) post of battery no. 4
(Figure 13-1, Page 13-2). Record reading. Then set multimeter to 20 volts DC and place the red (+) probe on
the positive (+) post and the black (–) probe at the negative (–) post of each battery. Record the readings.
The on-charge voltage for the set should be between 56.0 volts and 63.0 volts depending on the age and state
of charge of the batteries being tested. If individual batteries read above 14.0 volts and are within 1.0 volts of
each other, go to the hydrometer test. If any battery reads below 14.0 volts and not within 1.0 volts of those
batteries above 14.0 volts, replace battery. If readings are below 14.0 volts but within 1.0 volts of each other,
the batteries are old. Old batteries may have enough capacity left to last several more months. Go to hydrometer test. See Battery Troubleshooting Chart on page 13-6 and the examples on the following pages.
HYDROMETER TEST
A hydrometer measures the specific gravity of the battery’s electrolyte. The higher the specific gravity, the
higher the state of charge of the batteries. A fully charged battery should read between 1.250 and 1.280 at
80 °F (26.7 °C). Never add acid to batteries to obtain a higher specific gravity.
Performing the Hydrometer Test
1. Be sure batteries have sufficient electrolyte to cover plates by approximately 1/2 inch (13 mm) and are
fully charged prior to beginning test. If water must be added, recharge the batteries before performing the
hydrometer test.
2. Remove the vent cap. Using a battery thermometer (CCI P/N 1011767), record electrolyte temperature
of the no. 2 cell.
3. Squeeze the rubber bulb of the hydrometer and insert into the cell. Slowly release the bulb, drawing electrolyte up into the glass tube of the hydrometer.
4. When the float rises off the bottom, adjust the electrolyte level so that the float rides free of the bottom
but does not strike the top of the glass tube. Remove the hydrometer from the cell and release the pressure from the bulb.

Most hydrometers are calibrated to read correctly at 80 °F (26.7 °C). The readings obtained as described
above must be corrected for temperature. For each 10 °F (5.6 °C) above 80 °F (26.7 °C), add 0.004 to the
reading. For each 10 °F (5.6 °C) below 80 °F (26.7 °C), subtract 0.004 from the reading.

DISCHARGE TEST
If the previous tests have failed to identify the problem, conduct a discharge test. The discharge test comes
closest to simulating actual vehicle operating conditions by continuously drawing current from the batteries
until voltage drops to 42.0 volts.
The discharge test is the hardest test on the batteries and the most time-consuming to perform. Use the battery discharge tester (CCI P/N 101831901).
Performing the Discharge Test
1. Be sure the batteries are fully charged and that the electrolyte level is correct in all cells.
2. Connect the tester leads to the positive (+) post of battery no.1 and negative (–) post of battery no. 4
(Figure 13-5, Page 13-9).

Battery Testing
Performing the Discharge Test, Continued:
3. Check and record the electrolyte temperature of the battery packs. Check cell no. 2 (second cell from
positive post) in each battery.
4. Reset discharge machine and turn the tester ON.
5. When the batteries have been discharging for approximately 60 minutes, set the discharge machine to
function 3 and check battery set voltage. Check voltage every 10 minutes throughout the rest of the test.
As soon as the battery set voltage reaches 0.5 volts above the shut-off point (42.0 volts), use a multimeter to measure individual battery voltages. Measure and record the voltage of each battery to the nearest 0.01 volt.
NOTE: The tester will shut off automatically when shut-off voltage is reached.
Interpreting Discharge Test Results
1. If discharge time is 60 minutes or higher, the problem is not with the batteries.
2. If discharge times are low (less than 60 minutes), replace batteries below 10.05 volts.

Battery Storage
BATTERY STORAGE
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
When storing batteries during the off-season or when maintaining a replacement stock, follow these guidelines:
1. Keep the batteries clean and free of corrosion. See Battery Care on page 13-2.
2. Batteries that are in vehicles for winter storage should be left disconnected in the vehicles if the batteries
are not going to be connected to a charger.
3. Fully charge the batteries prior to storage.
4. Store in a cool area. The colder the area in which the batteries are stored, the less the batteries will selfdischarge. Batteries stored at 0 °F (–17.8 °C) will discharge very little over a four-month period. Batteries
stored at 80 °F (26.7 °C) will have to be recharged every few weeks.
5. 48-volt Club Car electric vehicles and compatible battery chargers are designed to be left connected,
with AC power to the charger ON, during off-season storage. The storage charge feature will automatically charge the batteries as needed throughout the storage period.

ý WARNING
• See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The IQ System vehicle is equipped with a 48-volt DC, shunt-wound, reversible traction motor. The shuntwound motor is designed for use on the IQ System vehicle only. Club Car recommends that motors requiring
major repair be sent to a qualified motor repair shop; however, there are many relatively simple tasks that can
be performed by a technician with general knowledge and experience in electric motor repair.
MOTOR IDENTIFICATION
There are two types of motors used in 2005 model year IQ System electric vehicles: Model 5BC59JBS6365
(gray housing), and EJ4-4001 (black housing). Do not attempt to service a motor that has not been properly
identified. If the motor cannot be properly identified, contact your local Club Car dealer or distributor.
EXTERNAL MOTOR TESTING
Using a multimeter or continuity tester, the following tests can be performed without disassembling the motor.
NOTE: Tag the motor wires for identification before disconnecting.
TEST PROCEDURE 1 – INTERNAL SHORT CIRCUITS
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
1. Disconnect the battery cables as instructed. See WARNING “To avoid unintentionally starting...” in
General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
2. Using two wrenches to prevent posts from turning, disconnect wires from terminals on motor.
3. Using a multimeter set to 200 ohms, place black (–) probe on motor housing. Scratch through paint to
ensure a good connection. Place red (+) probe on A1, A2, F1, and F2 terminals respectively
(Figure 15a-1, Page 15a-2). Multimeter should indicate no continuity. If readings are incorrect, motor will
need to be removed from the vehicle and repaired by a qualified technician. See Motor Removal on
page 15a-3.
3.1. An incorrect reading from the A1 or A2 terminal indicates three possible problems: a grounded A1
or A2 terminal, a grounded wire in the brush area, or a grounded armature/commutator. An incorrect reading for the F1 or F2 terminal indicates a possible grounded F1 or F2 terminal or field coil.

Visual Inspection, Continued:
A dirty or oily commutator should be cleaned and wiped dry. Abnormalities identified during the inspection can
help determine original cause of failure. Slight roughness of the commutator can be polished smooth with 400
grit or finer sandpaper. See following CAUTION and NOTE.
CAUTION
• Do not use emery cloth to polish the commutator. Particles of emery are conductive and may
short-circuit the commutator bars. Do not use oil or lubricants on the commutator or brushes.
NOTE: Oil on the commutator may indicate a faulty transaxle input shaft oil seal.
Armature Ground Test
ý CAUTION
• Do not submerge the armature in solvent.
NOTE: Before testing the armature, wipe it clean with a clean cloth. Remove any carbon dust and metal
particles from between the commutator bars.
1. With a multimeter set to 200 ohms, place one probe on the commutator and the other on the armature
core. The multimeter should indicate no continuity (Figure 15a-7, Page 15a-6). If the reading is incorrect, replace the armature.

Motor Component Testing and Inspection
MOTOR COMPONENTS
1. Inspect the insulators (4 and 7) for cracks or other damage (Figure 15a-10, Page 15a-8).
2. Inspect the brushes (13) for damage or excessive wear. Replace brushes if required. See following
NOTE.
3. Inspect the brush springs (14) (Figure 15a-10, Page 15a-8). Replace springs that are discolored from
heat (light gold or blue tinted). Replace springs which apply a force of less than 16 oz. (Figure 15a-8,
Page 15a-7).
CAUTION
• When checking brush spring tension, do not over-extend the spring. Using excessive force
will damage the spring.
NOTE: When installing new brushes, remove and replace brushes one at a time. This method ensures the
terminals and brushes will be properly positioned in the rigging. Refer to Motor Assembly for brush
installation. See Motor Assembly on page 15a-10.
When replacing brushes, replace all four brushes. Never replace only two.
Install the brushes in the same rigging 180° apart from each other.
BEARING INSPECTION
1. Using a clean cloth, wipe the carbon dust off of the bearing. Inspect the bearing by spinning it by hand
and checking for both axial (A) and radial (B) play (Figure 15a-9, Page 15a-7).
2. Replace the bearing if it is noisy, does not spin smoothly, or has excessive play. Check the bearing and
replace if rusted, worn, cracked, or if there is an abnormal color change in the metal of the bearing. Do
not remove the bearing from the armature shaft unless it is to be replaced.

ý WARNING
• See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
GENERAL INFORMATION
The IQ System vehicle is equipped with a 48-volt DC, shunt-wound, reversible traction motor. The shuntwound motor is designed for use on IQ System vehicles only. Club Car recommends that motors requiring
major repair be sent to a qualified motor repair shop; however, there are many relatively simple tasks that can
be performed by a technician with general knowledge and experience in electric motor repair.
MOTOR IDENTIFICATION
There are two types of motors used in 2005 model year IQ System electric vehicles: Model 5BC59JBS6365
(gray housing), and EJ4-4001 (black housing). Do not attempt to service a motor that has not been properly
identified. If the motor cannot be properly identified, contact your local Club Car dealer or distributor.
EXTERNAL MOTOR TESTING
The following tests can be performed without disassembling the motor using a multimeter or continuity tester.
NOTE: Tag the motor wires for identification before disconnecting.
TEST PROCEDURE 1 – INTERNAL SHORT CIRCUITS
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
1. Disconnect the battery cables as instructed. See WARNING “To avoid unintentionally starting...” in
General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-2.
2. Disconnect wires from terminals on motor using two wrenches to prevent posts from turning.
3. With a multimeter set to 200 ohms, place black (–) probe on motor housing. Scratch through paint to
ensure a good connection. Place red (+) probe on A1, A2, S1, and S2 terminals respectively. Multimeter
should indicate no continuity between the motor housing and all individual terminals. If readings are
incorrect, motor will need to be removed from the vehicle and repaired by a qualified technician. See
Motor Removal on page 15b-2.
3.1. An incorrect reading from the A1 or A2 terminal indicates three possible problems: a grounded A1
or A2 terminal, a grounded wire in the brush area, or a grounded armature/commutator. An incorrect reading for the S1 or S2 terminal indicates a possible grounded S1 or S2 terminal or field coil.

1. If bearings (13) were removed during disassembly, install new bearings using an arbor press
(Figure 16-5, Page 16-3).
2. Assemble the differential gear case.
2.1. Install the pin (31) (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3). Apply a small amount of oil to all thrust plates and to
both ends of the pin.
2.2. Install the hex bolts (33) and output gear (32). Tighten bolts to 58 ft-lb (78.6 N·m).
3. Press a new bearing (18) onto the intermediate gear assembly (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3).
4. Press new bearing (16) onto input pinion gear (17).
5. Apply grease to the lip of the new oil seal (10) and install the seal using a transaxle pinion seal tool (CCI
P/N 1014161). The lip of the oil seal should face the inside of the transaxle housing. Make sure the seal
is firmly seated.
6. Install the differential assembly, the intermediate gear assembly, and the input pinion gear simultaneously. Be sure all bearings are seated properly in the housing. Rotate the input shaft to check for
smooth gear operation (Figure 16-11, Page 16-6).

TRANSAXLE (TYPE G)
Transaxle Installation
Transaxle Assembly, Continued:
7. Install both dowel pins (25) in the transaxle housing (20) (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3).
8. Install left half of transaxle housing:
8.1. Place a 1/8-inch (3 mm) bead of Three Bond liquid gasket on mating surface of housing.
8.2. Install left half of transaxle housing (20) (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3).
8.3. Install eleven bolts (24) in the case housing and tighten to 19 ft-lb (25.7 N·m). Type G transaxles
have no shims or gasket.
8.4. Install axle tube (14 and 35) with bolts (8) (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3). Tighten the bolts to 37 ft-lb
(50.2 N·m).
9. Install the brake assemblies as instructed. See Brake Cluster Installation, Section 6, Page 6-10.
10. Apply a small amount of grease to the lip of the oil seal (15) (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3). See following
CAUTION.
ý CAUTION
• Clean any residual oil from the exposed end of the axle shaft and from the oil seal area prior to
installing the axle shaft to prevent oil from coming in contact with brakes.
11. Install the rear axle onto the transaxle.
11.1. Insert the splined end of the axle shaft into the axle tube. Be careful not to damage the seal on the
inside of the axle tube hub. Advance the shaft through to the bearing on the shaft, and rotate it to
align the shaft splines with the splined bore of the differential gear. Continue advancing the shaft
until the bearing on the axle is firmly seated within the axle tube hub seat.
11.2. Using 90° internal snap ring pliers (0.090 tip) (CCI P/N 1012560), attach the internal retaining ring
into the axle tube hub so that it seats against the axle bearing assembly and into the machined slot
in the inside wall of the axle tube hub (Figure 16-5, Page 16-3).
11.3. Place a 1/4 to 3/8-inch (6 to 10 mm) diameter rod against the retaining ring and tap lightly at four
or five locations to ensure it is properly seated. See following WARNING.
ý WARNING
• Be sure retaining ring is properly seated in its groove. If ring is not properly installed, the axle
assembly will separate from the transaxle and damage the axle assembly and other
components. Loss of vehicle control could result in severe personal injury or death.
12. Make sure the drain plug (22) is installed in the transaxle and tightened to 23 ft-lb (31 N·m). Fill the transaxle, through the level indicator hole, with 22 ounces of SAE 30 API Class SE, SF, or SG oil (a higher
grade may also be used). Install and tighten the level indicator plug (21) to 23 ft-lb (31 N·m).
TRANSAXLE INSTALLATION
See General Warnings, Section 1, Page 1-1.
1. If using a chain hoist, raise the vehicle and place transaxle in position on the jack stands. If using a floor
jack, lower the jack stands to their lowest settings and place the transaxle in position on the jack stands.
2. Align the center hole in the saddle of the transaxle with the pilot bolt in the leaf spring assembly.
Page 16-10
2005 Precedent IQ System Electric Golf Car Maintenance and Service Manual
TRANSAXLE (TYPE G)
Transaxle Installation
3. Install the two U-bolts, jounce bumper mount (if required), and spacers, lock washers, and nuts. Tighten
the nuts to 25 ft-lb (34 N·m). Tighten the U-bolt nuts so an equal amount of thread is visible on each leg
of the bolt.
4. Install the motor. See Motor Installation, Section 15a, Page 15a-12, or Motor Installation,
Section 15b, Page 15b-13.
5. If using a chain hoist, lower the vehicle while guiding the leaf springs into the rear spring shackles. If
using a floor jack, raise the differential while guiding the leaf springs into the rear spring shackles. Then
raise the jack stands to support the transaxle.
6. Connect the four motor wires. Tighten the retaining nuts to 65 in-lb (7.3 N·m). Use two wrenches to prevent the posts from turning. See following NOTE.
NOTE: If the motor wires were not tagged when disconnected, refer to the wiring diagram for proper connection. See Wiring Diagrams, Section 11, Page 11-2.
7. Insert bolts through the spring shackles and bushings in the leaf spring eyes. Secure bolts with lock nuts.
Tighten to 15 ft-lb (20.3 N·m).
8. Connect the brake cables using new bow tie pins (1) (Figure 16-7, Page 16-5).
9. Install the shock absorbers. Tighten shock absorber retaining nuts until the rubber bushings expand to
the same size as the cup washers.
10. Install the rear wheels and finger-tighten the lug nuts.
11. Lift the vehicle and remove the jack stands.
12. Lower vehicle and tighten the lug nuts, using a crisscross pattern, to 55 ft-lb (74.6 N·m).
13. Inspect the vehicle to check for proper operation. See following WARNING.
ý WARNING
• Make sure that the vehicle operates in the forward direction when the Forward/Reverse switch
is in the FORWARD position.
• Make sure that the vehicle operates in the reverse direction when the Forward/Reverse switch
is in the REVERSE position. The reverse buzzer will sound as a warning when the Forward/
Reverse switch is in REVERSE.
• Make sure that the vehicle does not operate when the Forward/Reverse switch is in the
NEUTRAL position.
