This is a complete replacement for the V-Glide Speed Control Switch for 36 volt electric Club Car golf carts made from 1988 to present with the resistor style speed control. The switch includes the plastic housing, the copper wiper contact, wiper arm, stationary contacts all assembled and ready for installation.
The resistor coils look like a long spring and are located immediately behind the batteries. The resistors are usually covered with an aluminum heat shield. Be care when working with them as they may be hot. Put the forward/reverse switch in NEUTRAL and turn the key OFF before performing any work on the electrical system.
This V-Glide Assembly is not for use with 36-volt Club Car models with an ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTOLLER. Although the V-Glide for that electrical system looks identical from the exterior, they are fundamentally different internally and wired very differently. The electronic speed control systems DO NOT feature the resistors coils behind the battery pack and there are no colored cables from the V-glide back to the resistor coils.
Replaces Club Car Factory Part # 1016140
This golf cart V-Glide will not work on 48 volt cars with electronic speed control.
