From your description, I would say you have one or more bad batteries. Try this, connect a voltmeter across one suspect battery, while looking at meter,key switch on, f/r switch in forward, step on pedal just enough to move cart, see if voltage drops while under that load. Do this on each battery. Replace all batteries that drop significantly.

See if the motor is bad. If the motor is getting really old the bearings in it may be getting to where they do not turn so easily anymore. On some electric golf carts there is a pressure switch under the seat that if you are not sitting in the cart it will stop the motor for safety reasons. If this switch goes bad then the cart does not know if you are sitting there or not. We used to test these switches by jumping the wires of the switch together to fool the cart into thinking that we were always sitting on the thing. It is a good way to test the switch but not a great way to keep it that way, that switch is there for a reason. If it is bad then get a replacement.

*NOTE: Not all carts have this switch, check with the manufacturer.

Charger works but cant get it to charge when plugged into my cart 48 volt


This can be one of several problems. Make sure charger works on another cart first. If it does then check total voltage of your cart, has to be at least 42 volts before charger will turn on. If you plug in the charger and it does not turn on then listen for a small click from inside the charger. That would be the relay and if it operates then your voltage is ok and you have something else wrong. If you don't hear the click then check the small gray wire at charger receptacle. It sometimes breaks just inside the receptacle, Without this sense lead, charger will never turn on. If all batteries, wiring, sense lead, fuse in the sense lead are ok, then it might be the OBC (on-board computer).

How do you check output voltage from generator to battery in an club car golf cart


if you look at the charger plug there is a small switch it can either be held down with the cover off or with it on. It should read you between 48 and 50 volts DC with that switch in that switch will keep you from charging the batteries if it is faulty. These chargers are really rather simple and golf cart King has the motherboards cheaper than anywhere else that you can buy them. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS

Find the year serial nimber A9649-548612 club car golf cart was manufactured


Since 1981 Club Car Golf Carts have positioned their serial numbers just under the glove box on the passengers side of the vehicle. The first two numbers (not letters) indicate the last two digits of the year of manufacture.

On Club Car Golf Carts prior to 1981, you can find the serial number by raising the seat and locating the aluminum, I-beam frame section closest to the batteries on the driver's side of the car. If the serial number plate has been removed, you can confirm it is a 1975-1980 model if it has two brake pedals and one accelerator pedal.
