Question about Golf Carts
I ckecked the batteries, 48 volts, and found they are good. All checked 8.4 or so except for one that was 6.5. There are 6 batteries. It does this in reverse and forward. Any suggestions?
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.
