The charger needs to 'see' a minimum voltage before it will turn on. The batteries have probably dropped below the min voltage. Can you check the total pack voltage with a handheld meter?

If they are very low (which I suspect they are) charge them in pairs with a 12v charger (works for 2/6v in series) until they come up high enough for the charger to recognize them and come on.

And after taking this advise the next thing you need to do is keep your cart plugged into the charger all the time; especially when your not using it for long periods of time..... A properly working charger will NOT over charge your batteries.....

Leaving it plugged in may not work. My charger doesn't reset unless it's unplugged.

Better choice: www.batteryminders.com There are other brands but these battery maintainers insure fully charged batteries ( no sulfate issues) and no water loss over an extended time frame like 6 months. Model #36271 for 36v...search for best price.

Well this is what a Club Car Power Drive Charger is "supposed" to do.....

With that being said I think the OBC is designed to switch the charger back on every 2 weeks (?) as long was there was no A/C power interuptions.... The rectifiers died in mine and that was my excuse to get a DPI charger...

After the initial charge is complete the DPI charger goes to a float mode like the battery minder but it also cycles on to recharge the pack every 30 days - which is something you can't get from a battery float device.

That is a nice feature. My Yamaha charger doesn't do this as far as I know.
