I have read most of your very useful information as I am attempting to mend a good friend’s trolley. From what he tells me it is a ProRider leisure trolley. He bought it second-hand and has been using it, however apparently it has started to sometimes just turn itself off while being used, the dashboard display goes blank, it normally restarts. He has a new battery and has fitted a new battery lead But it still does it. Today I have taken all the wire joints apart and sprayed with wd40, then making sure all joints are back together correctly. If this does not work I assume it must be a fault in either the T handle or the control box. As there is only part of the stick-on label on the control box, would you tell me which one I need? The only other thing I can see that is damaged is the cover over the on/off switch which has been torn. Any advice would be very welcome.
Yes, the first thing I would have looked at is the power feeds, i.e. the golf trolley battery lead. But with them being changed over and presumably working, this points now to look at other intermittent power fluctuations or breaks. With the connectors checked as you say, then I would think the next thing to check or possibly worth trying is the main wire. Checking the main wire without a tester on the wires is a matter of wiggling while powered up. Doing this by going around the main wire to see if there are any breaks in this main wire running from the top handle circuit to the main golf trolley controller box under the battery tray. Testing the main wire, I would start at the most common breaking point the main golf trolley folding bracket area. A few wiggles are the easiest way to proceed while checking if there is any power shut down. From there I would then look toward the controller or handle circuit. These are more difficult to determine which one may be causing the issue. I am afraid this is a process of guesswork without the means to test bench the components. So the main golf trolley controller unit and the golf trolley handle display circuit may need to be replaced with the new units which simply plug in.
Thanks for the prompt reply my friend Is trying it out again tomorrow. I could not get it to cut out after I did the joints, if it fails again I will test the main wire as you said if it is the main wire would you have a replacement? I will let you know how I get on.
Yes, I have replacement wires. I forgot to say regards the controller if the numbers are not on or been scraped away on the box then to know which type, is a matter of checking the handle circuit board display PCB. See the post: golf trolley controllers for circuits. Being a ProRider golf trolley then if it’s the original shaped T handle and not the newer coloured winged T handle then it will be our product no.
