Default 2008 Precedent. No reverse, forward erratic

My batteries ran all the way down due to a bad outlet. When I charged the batteries to full again, the cart will no go reverse and forward is hesitant and stops after about 20 feet. After that, no response until I put it back on the charger again, then it will do the 20 feet again. The batteries all check good with a hygrometer and load test at my battery place. Any advice would be welcome. This is my first time. I apologize if I did it wrong.

Hello - welcome to BGW.
It sounds like you are having a battery problem.
Can we get some voltage readings?
Pack reading at rest 12 hours after charger shut off is ?
Pack reading when you try to go but the cart doesn't is ?

I took the batteries out and had my battery dealer check them. They all check good. Thanks for the reply but its not the batteries.

In order for ScottyB to help you he needs that information. It goes with the troubleshooting of a golf cart.

If you are not willing to check the voltage for us, how would like us to help you.

Is your battery guy a golf cart battery tech? Golf cart batteries are not the same as car batteries, what kind of batteries do you have in your cart, are they golf cart batteries? There are many reasons your cart may not be working right. Without some measurements, and sometimes photos, these guys need information to help you solve your problem if you want them to

They are not saying you don't know what you are talking about or trying to offend anyone. They are here to help people that want help.

If you tried to drive it with very low batteries, you may have killed the controller. If the batteries are fine, the next likely failed component is the controller.
