Default cart will not charge 48v 2000 club

Charger has been checked.
I charged batteries individually with 6 volt charger.
after charging batteries, they read between 5.5 to 7.0 dcv.
The charger will not start charging.
What is next step?

I know there's a way to test whether or not it's the OBC (on board computer), and that's to by-pass it. However, I've been told 2 conflicting ways to "jump" it, so I'll let someone more knowledgeable than me cite the correct and safe way to to that.

I found this, referenced in the Buggies Unlimited forum. It's detailing how to bypass the OBC to use an aftermarket charge, but I see no reason why this method wouldn't work for the Club Car charger as well:

(no idea why "EZGO" is in the address bar; this *is* for a C.C.)



HTH!

DOES THE CAR MOVE AT ALL? try disconnecting the battery and discharging the controller for atleast a minute, let teh car sit without any power goin through the system and put it in reverse and step on the go pedal. this will drain the controller through the reverse buzzer.. ( slightly different way to discharge it though if its a 48v IQ car. sometimes the computer will lock its self up and wont work. so u need to reboot it. also check the 3/8 amp fuses inside the yellow fuse holders. also u can probe the recepticle on the car to see if ur getting voltage should be (around give or take ) 10-16v, 32-38v, and 42-48v in different plug combinations. if any reading is 0-8v comp is bad. also u can plug the car into the charger and hit the go-pedal (car shouldnt move at all. sometimes if a computer is bad it will work opposite) IS UR BATTERY INDICATOR LIGHT ON? if not check for continuity both ways (its a diode so it shoudl only read one way, if no continuity , or continuity both ways the light is bad.. DOES THE RELAY IN THE CHARGER CLICK AT ALL WHEN U PLUG IT IN? if it does and ur still not chargen its somethin on the AC side. THERE IS A COMPUTER BYPASS U CAN DO THE CHECK BUT IF you dont have the right connector u can blow out ur comp and possibly controller if ur probes touch other pin heads. computers work on negetive voltage and are VERY sensitive to current. hope this helped alittle if not let me know and ill give u my cell number and ill walk u through the procedures over the phone.

I have a 2000 48v club car. I have to charge it every two days or the charger won't kick in. Batteries are new. Some times charger will start after an hour or so after being plugged in. When charger won't go I have to plug into another club car to start the charger then it will work on mine immediately. Also when it does kick in, it goes to 35amps, clicks off then restart all within a few seconds. anybody have any ideas??

Go back to the top of this thread and instead of 'post reply' hit 'new thread' and re-ask the same question..... this avoids runon dialoge and hijacked threads Good luck
