DO NOT leave the DPI plugged in - only try it once the pack reaches say 28+v. If it fails to start, disconnect and wait for higher voltage.

also no need to disconnect any battery from the string to charge. the charger only charges what is between it's + and - leads

Ok. Thanks. One of my chargers will charge them connected the other will not. It gives me a fault if I try to leave it connected. Not sure why

it's probably reading an overvoltage leaking from other batts.

43 v and the dpi kicked on. Now it's just a matter of how much damage I did to the batteries

Do you have something on the cart that may put some sort of drain on the batteries all of the time? A radio with a constant memory wire hooked up or anything like that. Just seems to me that, unless something is putting a drain on the pack, if you left it for 2 months without getting charged, it still should have had at least enough volts to trigger the charger unless something else is going on.

I leave my carts at my lake place year round (except this year I brought one home to give it a makeover). At some point during the winter, the GFI outlet my charges stay plugged into got tripped and my 07 sat for at least 2 months without being charged. When I went down to check into it, I found the cart dead enough that it wouldn't move more than an inch, but it did at least budge. I didn't check the voltage but when I plugged it in, the charger came right on. I have been down and used the cart a couple of times this season so far and have noticed no ill effects.

It obviously has a drain but I don't know what it is. It doesn't have a radio. But something is using juice. I need to figure it out but I am at electric
