Yamaha golf cart 36 volts last set of batteries get hot awhile driving


batteries will get hot when working as there is current flow across the plates . For batteries to get noticeable hot then there is a current draw that exceeds the capacity of the battery . This indicates a problem electric motor in the system (Worn bushes/bearings -armature poling out --shorting windings or armature) it may also indicate shorting between batteries from a battery that has collapsing cells . Have each battery inderpendently load tested

How did you have the alternator checked? bench tested? check the charging system at the battery with a volt meter while the car is running to see what the voltage is it should be above 13 volts but less then 15 volts if not clean all connections and check all the fuses there is a fuse under the dash that may have blown. If this don't work check with a jeep dealership

It sounds like th ebattery has failed with high internal resistance. Get a voltmeter (or multimeter in dc volts mode) and measure across the battery while trying to crank. It should remain near 12 volts, possibly drop to 11 or so while cranking if low charge, but a failed battery will drop to very low voltage. With no load, it may stay high enough to run small items like the fuel pump. You could also check the negative lead where it attaches to the engine and clean its connection. The voltage will give you a clue, if it stays around 12V then the problem is in the wiring somewhere.

Ford Forte, is it the alternator of fuse


Hi:
The battery light means that your charging system is not functioning. that is why your car stopped when you unhooked the battery. You need to check out your alternator. Most auto parts stores will check them for free and let you know if it is bad. If you have a volt meter, you can do a basic check on your car:
Check the voltage of the battery: it should be around 12.6 volts when fully charged. After you start your car, check the voltage across the battery. It should be around 14 volts. If not, your alternator is not putting out the proper charging voltage!

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

Battery charge spiked up on 1994 jeep grand cherokee ltd.


check the battery cable connections, are they clean and tight? This can cause the charging system to spike and go into the 16-17 volt range, the other thing is a problem with either the alternator or the voltage regulator, a diode that is failing can cause this issue.
