Club Car V-Glide Resistors

The Club Car V-Glide is a discrete multi-step potentiometer.  There are several configurations of thses and here I try to coalesce the varied information I have found from Buggiesgonewild and other sources.

Resistor Wattages:

  • 1/2 watt or higher.  To date, I have not found a definitive source on the resistor wattages, but I would reckon 1/2 watt resistors are the minimum for these. If you know the proper wattages let me know.

2 wire config (model years 1994-) / 36v:

  • 910Ω
  • 620Ω
  • 620Ω
  • 750Ω
  • 820Ω
  • 1100Ω

2 wire config ( model yeas 1995+) / 48v:

  • 300Ω
  • 390Ω
  • 300Ω
  • 750Ω
  • 1000Ω
  • 2200Ω

3 wire Multi-Step Resistor Values: (all model years) 36v

  • 910Ω
  • 750Ω
  • 910Ω
  • 1000Ω
  • 1000Ω
  • 1000Ω

This diagram shows the resistor locations for the 2-wire 36v variant. You can derive the resistor locations for the others from this diagram.

 

Note that these resistor values are not normally found in standard resistor variety packs.  You can get these from Mouser.  Eg:

910 Ω – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Xicon/293-910-RC/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMsPqMdJzcrNwgUfzUaPjk1Cd7Z1DapgNag%3D

620 Ω – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/KOA-Speer/MF1-2LCT52R621J/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMsPqMdJzcrNwuBnmYaxrx0HsKwO%252bDhHkMo%3D (need 2 of these!)

750 Ω – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/KOA-Speer/MOS1-2CT52R751J/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMsPqMdJzcrNwtkiCP%2FuZm62Wr5xcoVl9uY%3D

820 Ω – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/KOA-Speer/MOS1-2CT52R821J/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMsPqMdJzcrNwt5MjSXiZxKrfEP1FOYLHzs%3D

1100 Ω – http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/TE-Connectivity-Neohm/CFR50J1K1/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMsPqMdJzcrNwlDepD%252blwznyxLhM7ikk9Sk%3d

Don’t forget to get some non-insulated ring terminals too.   A variety box like these should cover it & leave you with lots of extras for later projects.
