Smile Re: Help please !!

What they are looking for...to start with...is a voltage reading for each battery. Be sure to set the voltage range to match the batteries and record the voltage for each battery at rest. We are looking for equal voltage for each battery. You don't have to remove any wires for these tests. The next test is total pack voltage...set your meter to an upper voltage range the would accomadate the total voltage in the pack after charging. The main neg. cable is usually on the driver side and goes back towards the OBC (if you have one) or the controller. The main pos. Cable is usually on the passengers side and almost always has some other smaller wires with it. Read the total pack voltage by putting the meter probes on the main pack neg. and pos. And read the total voltage. Then charge the batteries overnight and read the total pack voltage after the charger shuts off. These numbers will help determine what's going on.

Do you least have rudimentary understanding of how to use the mult-meter? Lets assume no here...
1) Black Meter Lead should be plugged into the black COM port.
2) Red Meter Lead should be plugged into the red V port.
3) Set the Rotary Dial on the meter to DC Voltage it may be marked with a stacked symbol of a solid line on top of a dashed line.
4) Depending on style of meter there may be RANGE setting knob too. Set it for any range above the cart voltage of 48 volts.
5) There should also be a setting of AC Voltage with a symbol of V~ this is NOT the setting you use on DC Voltage.
6) Take readings from each battery one at a time. Keeping in mind that the black lead goes on the (-) and the red lead goes on the (+) battery posts.
7) Take a voltage reading across all batteries for a total combined voltage reading by placing the black lead on B1 (-) and the read lead on B6 (+)

You can't be measuring right. Those readings are not right.

Need readings for each individual battery.

Battery 5 is reading ZERO voltage?
Battery 4 is reading FOUR volts?
Battery 1, 2, 3 & 6 are reading 7 volts?

Are you absolutely sure that batteries 4 & 5 are hooked up in correct series sequence? All batteries must be hooked up (-) post of one battery to the (+) post of the next battery... Your charger will never turn on with only 32 volts in the package!

Follow the picture if you can and double check your connections....
