How to Reset And Reboot Club Car OBC Computer To Clear Fault Codes


Some Club Car golf carts use an On Board Computer (or OBC) to monitor and control various capabilities of their carts. It acts as a Go/No Go control for the charging and cart drive systems. When the OBC finds a problem in either the charging or drive system, it will turn off that feature. After the fault clears, the OBC is supposed to turn that system back on. Oftentimes, the OBC will not clear a fault.

It is possible to manually reset the OBC. The reset sequence is not hard to do, but can take quit a few steps.

Steps for resetting the Club Car OBC:
For resetting the OBC the following must be done in this order:

Key Switch to Off

Forward/Reverse to Neutral

Tow/Run Switch to Tow

Disconnect the Battery Negative (–) wire from the Battery Minus terminal on the battery pack.

Move Tow/Run to Run

Forward/Reverse Switch to Reverse

Turn Key Switch to On

Lock the throttle pedal down. The reverse buzzer will sound and go off in about half a minute. Leave the cart like that for 5 min to cause the OBC to reset.

Reconnecting the OBC back into the system:

Key Switch to Off

Forward/Reverse Switch to Neutral

Tow/Run switch to Tow

Reconnect the Battery (–) wire to the battery minus terminal on the battery pack.

Your Club Cart’s On Board Computer should now have been completely reset.
