Default 99 DS 48V charger will not shut off

Hello all, It has been a bit since I last posted. I am getting ready to go up north for the summer and the past couple of days I have noticed the charger is still charging the batteries in the morning after all night being plugged in. Also the batteries are warm as well as the output wire from the charger. I unplugged the charger, let the batteries cool down for a day and checked the voltage on all the batteries. Five were 8.4 to 8.6 volts. The other one was 8.1. Could the low one keep the charger from kicking off? I want to get this fixed before heading north as I have a neighbor looking after the cart and using it occasionally to keep it going, and do not want him to have any issues at the time he gets it. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Kim

Yep Scotty is right... There is less than half a volt between fully charged and discharged... 8.5 is fully charged ans 8.1 is roughly 55 % discharged which as as far as one would allow to go...
