Measure your battery voltage. Then measure your battery while cart engine is running. If you get 2 or 3 volts higher while engine running than when it's not, your charging system is ok. Lets say your voltmeter measures about the same voltage either way. Remove the small yellow wire on the starter/ generator and insulate. Place a jumper between the post that the yellow wire was on and the negative post of the battery. Now measure the battery while the engine is running. If you now measure higher voltage then your voltage regulator is bad, if you don't measure higher voltage then your starter/gen is bad.

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

SOURCE: Electric Golf cart only shutters and inches forward

so many possibilities...

does it roll fairly freely? (checking to see if the brakes or rearend seized up)

Are there any "bad" sounds like things grinding? (Connection between Motor and rearend, axle splines...)

If all that is solid, it is likely in the controller.... (it takes a solid charge right... No bad batteries in there or loose connection? might want to check all the battery connections to make sure none are burnt...)

1997.. does it have the electonic speed control by that year? the other possibilty is that the accelerator is not working corectly. they used a resistor system on old ones that has contactors that would get worn out.... Newer ones control a potentiometer(sp) that controlled the speed.

Only a few real components to check, but if you are not mechanically and electically inclined, could be tough to isolate.

peace,

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

Help My Club Golf Cart was under water for a couple of days


If the batteries are not sealed, it's likely the water diluted the acid in the battery cells. It's possible a battery service store could empty the batteries of diluted acid and then refill them with fresh. That would require someone who knows what he's doing and has the right safety equipment. Long shot, but perhaps worth a try on one of them to see if it will charge and hold a charge.

My 2000 Yamaha golf cart has 6-4cell 8 volt batteries. I did not leave the cart plugged in during the winter months. When I attempted to charge yesterday, the charger lights sequenced but stayed on...


Yes to both questions. the charger must sense 41.5 volts to activate the relay inside the charger. Being a repair shop, I have a charger that is rigged to charge even DEAD batteries. I do not recommend this for the novice. A charger set on 12 volts will bring the batteries back up to 8.2-8.6 volts. A cheap trickle charger may not put out enough to charge a battery of this size. Remember that they are used to MAINTAIN a charge. Connect the Voltmeter and watch for voltage rise. If it rises to 8.1 or above, it is charging. Trojan battery company recommends charging at least once a month.

Can I leave my 2004 ezgo golf cart charger plugged into the golf cart and wall all the time when golf cart not in use?


never leave charging all the time you want to charge it every 6 hrs of running time to let your batterys cycle down. it would be the same if you charge your cell phone everytime you make a call if you cant keep track of it get a state of charge its a volt metter like a gas gauge for the batterys if you do it my way you will get more run time and your batterys will last around 10 yrs if keep doing it your way them about a couple yrs on them
