We are getting close to completing this project, but I have a question.
With everything on at once there should be a 15 Amp load. So I would use a 20 Amp fuse. I will add a 20 Amp fuse to your order for no extra charge.
Also I would use a 14 gauge wire between the battery and bus bar. I will switch the 20 gauge wire on your order over to 14 gauge for no extra charge.
The 22 gauge wire will work for the lights however it is a little thin for the horn and siren. I will switch the 22 gauge wire on your order over to 16 gauge wire for no extra charge.
I will also put instructions on the order for our technician to use 16 gauge wire on the SWT-100 toggle switches.
With these changes made to your order everything now looks good to me.
Wow! Super Service!
I have a question about my car's 36volt system. Will leaving the on/off switch in the on position drain the batteries even if the motor is not being run? If so, why?
I'm thinking about replacing my on/off toggle switch with a switch that has an indicator light.
Old fashion looking 36 Volt indicator lights are available though which look like this.
We can special order these chrome plated brass indicator lights with 36 Volt lamps. We could attach wires and a connector onto it that would plug into the controller's indicator connector so it would be plug and play. We would not even charge you for this since you have placed so many orders with us. All you would need to do is let us know how long to make the wires?
The chrome indicator light would be great. Any color is OK. My controller does have an available connector labeled 'indicator' and the wires would need to be 42 inches long.
I also want to know the level of charge for my 36volt battery pack so as to know whether or not it need to go on the charger. . Would that be the volt meter?
You're right, that it doesn't fit the retro look of my car, but I have a place to put it where the audience wouldn't see it. I still would need the indicator light, as the volt meter would be hidden.
Great. I like the old fashion charge indicator and yes, please do add the wires to the back of the indicator light.
Okay that sounds good. How long would you like for the wires to be between the back of the indicator light and charge indicator?
Six inches would be good.
All of the electric work is done and everything works great. The twelve volt battery is hooked up to the bus bar along with the various lights and horns and their switches. I have the 12 volt charging port connected to the bus bar just like the other components. Is that OK? When I plug the 12 volt charger into the port, the green light comes on even though the charger's power cord is not plugged in to the wall. When I do plug it in, the light turns red and then after a time green, which I presume means the battery is charged.
When the 36 volt charger is plugged into it's port, the light does not come on until I plug it's power cord into the wall. The 36 volt charger makes a slight humming noise until the light turns green. I do not hear any noise from the 12 volt charger. Why do you suppose they behave differently?
