    Periodic maintenace

    To ensure trouble-free vehicle performance, it is very important to follow an established preventive maintenance program. Regular and consistent vehicle maintenance can prevent vehicle downtime and expensive repairs that can result from neglect. Any vehicle not functioning correctly should be removed from use until it is properly repaired. This will prevent further damage to the vehicle and avoid the possibility of injury due to unsafe conditions. Contact  CARRUS to perform all repairs and semiannual and annual periodic service.

    PERIODIC SERVICE SCHEDULE

    WARNING

    Service, repairs, and adjustments must be made per instructions in the appropriate section of this manual.

    If any problems are found during scheduled inspection or service, do not operate the vehicle until repairs are made. Failure to make necessary repairs could result in fire, property damage, severe personal injury, or death.

    NOTE: If the vehicle is constantly subjected to heavy use or severe operating conditions, the preventive maintenance procedure should be performed more often than recommended in the periodic service and lubrication schedules. Both the Periodic Service Schedule and the Periodic Lubrication Schedule must be followed to keep vehicle in optimum operating condition.

    Storage 

    WARNING

    • Turn the key switch OFF, remove the key, and leave the Forward/Reverse switch in the NEUTRAL position during storage.  This is to prevent unintentionally starting the vehicle or a fire hazard.

    • Do not attempt to charge frozen batteries or batteries with bulged cases.  Discard the battery.  Frozen batteries can explode. 

    • Batteries in low state of charge will freeze at low temperatures.

    • To avoid exposing electrical components to moisture and subsequent damages, do not use any type of pressure washing or steam cleaning equipment to wash the vehicle.

    • Place Tow/Run switch in the TOW position.

     

    PREPARING THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE FOR EXTENDED OFF-SEASON STORAGE

     

    • 1. Fully charge batteries. Charge batteries before placing in storage.
    • 2. Batteries should be clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution of baking soda and water (1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per1 gallon(3.8 L) of water). Rinse solution off batteries. Do not allow this solution to enter the batteries. Be sure terminals are tight.Let the terminals dry and then coat them with Battery Terminal Protector Spray.
    • 3. Store vehicle in a cool, dry place. Protected from the elements. This will minimize battery self-discharge.
    • 4. Disconnect from equipment to eliminate potenial parasitic loads that may discharge the battery.
    • 5. Batteries gradually self-discharge during storage. Monitor the specific gravity or voltage every 4-6 weeks. Stored batteries should be given a boost charge when they are at 70% state of charge or less.
    • 6. Adjust tires to recommended tire pressure.
    • 7. Perform all semiannual periodic lubrication.
    • 8. Thoroughly clean front body, rear body, seats, battery compartment, and underside of vehicle.
    • 9. Do not engage the park brake. Chock the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
    • 10. Keep batteries fully charged during storage.

     

    NOTE ONLY FOR CLUBCAR with powerdrive charger: The OBC keeps track of the time spent in storage mode. When the OBC detects that the storage charge cycles may have depleted the available electrolyte, it will stop the charger from further operation.

    - Leave battery chargers plugged in during storage. The onboard computer (OBC) will automatically activate the charger when necessary.

    - If the battery charger is left plugged in during extended storage, check the electrolyte level and charger function monthly to ensure that proper operation is maintained.

    - To check charger function, disconnect the DC cord (stationary charger) from the vehicle or the AC cord (onboard charger) from the power source, wait five seconds, then reconnect it. The charger is functioning properly if the ammeter indicates current.

    Disconnecting then reconnecting the DC cord (stationary charger) or AC cord (onboard charger) indicates the electrolyte levels have been maintained and allows the OBC to resume operation.

    While in storage, the Tow/Run switch should be in Tow.

    When in Tow mode, the amber battery warning light will not illuminate.

    Do not attempt to use the battery light as an indication of battery state while in storage.

     

    - If AC power is off for 7 days or longer, the OBC will not function or charge the vehicle again until it has been restarted. To restart the computer, make sure AC power has been restored, disconnect the DC cord (stationary charger) from the vehicle or the AC cord (onboard charger) from the power source, wait fiveseconds, then reconnect it.

     

    CAUTION

    • Be sure to check the batteries and charger monthly to maintain correct battery water level and to ensure the charger is operating correctly during storage.

    - If the charger cannot remain plugged in, AC power will not be available during extended storage, or electrolyte levels will not be maintained, then disconnect the batteries for storage. 

    RETURNING THE STORED ELECTRIC VEHICLE TO SERVICE

    1. If necessary, connect batteries.

    2. Fully charge batteries.

     

    WARNING

    • Do not attempt to charge frozen batteries or batteries with bulged cases.  Discard the battery.  Frozen batteries can explode.

    3. Adjust tire to recommended pressure..

    4. Perform the Pre-Operation and Daily Safety Checklist.
