Bob - you had this EXACT same issue finding the correct posts to measure last April - its detailed in this HUGE THREAD - hopefully Bob, if you re-read the whole thing, you'll track down where to take the readings. The thread contains photos of his battery compartment.

Bob here is an example of a 4-12v pack setup. You would put your meter connections on the main terminals:

Even a friend who can lend an extra set of eyes would be helpful here.... If your into old cars you've got to have someone close by who is handy with a wrench and flashlight...

Got to rule the batteries out before you can troubleshoot anything on the cart. Does no good to set a broken arm if the patient has got no pulse.

Great Bob, let us know how it goes. One thing is for certain, you are doing the right thing by replacing that cheap speed sensor with a high quality one from David.

I made an error yesterday on my pack voltage.I2 think i''ll chalk this one up to age getting in the way.I had posted 25.or something --acrossed the pack. Went out this morning and re-checked.using the meter the right way, this time.I have 51.07 volts,So this part of it is good. The S/S should be here today or tomorrow, I'll come back and say whats going on.BTW.before i end this;email. Is there any particular way/ or anything i should look out for, or do to this new speed sensor,before installing it??./ thanks bob s

Sometimes at rest voltage can be deceiving. The real test of a battery is what voltage it maintains under load. Install one of my digital battery meters and get real-time load testing when you press the gas pedal. If one battery has a problem cell that drops out under load the cart may not run at all.

Its a volt meter hard wired across your battery pack.... Think of a multi-meter set to read voltage right in the dashdoard.... Not only tells you how full your gas tank is one can learn to read how "strong" the gas is in the tank!
