Default Charger/Charging Port Issue

Ok guys, I have an issue with an older 36volt Club Car DS. The Charger is a 36V Accu Power with a visible fuse on the front of the charger just below the amp gauge. I put new batteries in the cart, and replaced the blown fuse on the charger. As soon as I plugged the charger in it zapped the fuse. I feel confident its something in the charging port, (the spark emitted from that port was the confirmation).. I have read some things about reverse polarity in the charging port itself. #1 could that be accurate, #2 What causes this, and #3 How do I correct it if the consensus directs me to this.

So in short, what are some of the things that I can do to trouble shoot same to find the diagnoses?

Thanks Guys!!

Make sure all of the batteries are wired correctly and the charger port is wired correctly

If your charger has the heat sink diodes its a sure sign one of them is bad.

Thanks I have this one, but the numbers in detail "A" don't match the larger diagram.

Is this it?

41 to 41
20 to key
21 to neg. #6
22 to pos. #1
11 to f/r switch

I hope

Here is the wiring diagram from my 1985 Service Manual. It appears that a few of your wires and jumbled up

Thank You CC,

Think I got it: 41 to 41 Charger to fuse
22 to F/r switch
21 to pos # 6
20 to key
11 to speed switch

Down to the last few strokes on this thing, it belonged to my Dad and he used it everyday, it sat for a few years after he pasted and I decided to restore it in his honor. Its looking pretty good. I'll post some pics soon I hope.

Thank you for your help!!
