Default Battery Charging Question

Bought a 2002 Club Car today , Batteries are low two bars blinking on dash indicator, "power drive" charger not kicking on, I understand that if the batts are too low the charger won't turn on. How do I charge two batteries at a time to bring them up? Do I need to disconnect them from the cart ? Help a newbie out .........Thanks

I think you have it backwards. If your batteries State OF Charge is too high, then some chargers will not initiate a charge cycle.

You're right about the how the charge works, ridge. The charger has a relay in it that uses a little juice from the batteries to kick on the charger. If they're too dead, it won't come on.

I think you can just put the cart in the "Tow" position to charge the batteries, but I'd disconnect them to be safe.

Check the fuse between the charger input and batteries. Or it could be the batteries are toast and cannot take a charge. Or the battery charger itself is at fault.

thank you for all the replies, I have ordered six new batteries and am taking the charger in tomorrow for a bench check. I am eventually going to trick out this cart and can see this site is going to be very helpful. Thanks again !

What is the Voltage reading across the entire pack ?
The Charger needs 34 volts across the relay to come on .
There is a procedure to bypass the charger relay, search this forum you should find it.
