Default Club Car Charger not operating

2002 Club Car charger isn't operating. I had a battery go a week ago and burned out the positive terminial and had to replace the cable lug as well as the battery. I did a volt check on all the batterys and they all check out in the green using a analog mulitmeter execpt the one directly adjacent to the one which burned out that was in the red. The charger is a Club Car Power Drive computer controlled. There is a small switch in the bottom right cornor marked 15 amp which is stuck in the up position. I don't know if that means anything. Side note some of the terminials required water which I replinished. Any suggestions before it goes to the shop for what is always an expensive repair.

Appreciate the assist!

Did a battery cable or something short out or did the cable just get hot and melt the terminal? Short = Bad, gettting hot = not so bad. Try charging the one dead battery first by itself. Can you get a picture of this switch?

Welcome to BGW, JGF...

The switch your refering to is the circuit breaker for the 120V source!

The switch isn't a switch to be flipped on/off, you flip it when it trips..


Which battery messed up on you.. If it was the main positive one you might of left the charger wire off..

Ok put a charge in one battery that was dead. Charger kicked on and cart now operating. Question after leaving charger on overnite can't seem to get it to go down past 4 amps to complete the charge. Any suggestions?

Define overnight, charger should trip off automatically after 16 hours (charged or not).
Remove charger , run cart for 15 minutes, then charge again (until it trips if reqired).
New Batteries will require several charges to reach their Max.
Buy a volt meter and chack Pack Voltage 1-2 Minutes after removing charger,
Check again after running cart (before charging) and Post results.
