2009 batteries! Hey, I'm still in the black! Haha. Would definitely answer the 17mph after speed code 4 and 18" wheel issue. New batteries definitely on the agenda. Batteries, wires the whole way to the motor and rear seat. Crash test, glass half full! At least they still work. Most importantly, I know where I am at with them and can move forward in that direction!

I finally got a multi meter. I used the charging percentage table in the battery info sticky. I got 51.5
Based on the chart, I am at over 100%. I unplugged the charger after charging the cart over night. I turned the cart to tow mode, waited ten minutes, then took the reading. Did I do this right?
Thanks

I'm curious if the pack should be checked with the switch in "tow" or "run"? I thought the only time you needed to put it in tow was when messing with the battery cables or other wiring. But I'm a noob still. The only time I put mine in tow was when I swapped the stock charge meter with a digital volt meter. But I have used a multimeter to check the pack since my DVM reads low by approximately 0.4v, so I've double checked it a few times to make sure the difference is consistent.

The guys on this site have me conditioned to put it tow for just about everything. I don't want to spark anything. Haha.

to get a true reading of battery condition you should test them 12 to 18 hours after the charger turns off.

It wouldn't matter if it's in tow to check the voltages, but better to be safe than sorry.

I'd take another measurement at least 12 (preferably 24hrs) after completing a charge to more accurate voltages.
