Run a 10 gauge jumper wire from the OBC side of the fuse to the MAIN negative battery post and plug the charger in and wait for it to turn on. If the charger shows amperage the OBC is bad.


When doing this should I disconnect it from the obc or just adding the jumper be ok

Still try and put the jumper wire in place and see if the ammeter rises. It may be partially restricted within the OBC.

Well the batteries in are shot it's charged for two straight days and finally kicked off I let it set overnight. And one of the batteries have a total charge of .236 volts. And of the other set of batteries only one has charge of 7 V all the others are three or 4 V. So I'm going to wait until they get me a new set of batteries to put in it. I'll keep you updated thank you Tahoe

Question - I have an 99 DS Club Car, should the batteries bubble or boil when charging... The lowest mine ever get down to is around 3-4 amps (on the charger) The charger never shuts off. I am wondering if I have a bad OBC or a problem with the charger.

When I plug it in I have the delay (2-4 seconds I think) then it kicks on the charger - starts at 15 amps or so... Each of the batteries is reading 8.46v. They are brand new this week....

So should the batteries bubble and at some point the charger shuts off?

Does your charger cycle when you plug it in? It should turn on within 2-10 seconds of plug insertion, run for a few seconds, and cycle off and back on. This is normal, we need to make sure this happens. Also, you need to take a voltage reading on your battery pack once the charger reaches 5 amps or below. If the voltage of the batteries never reaches 58.3 volts while on charge, the batteries are the issue. The OBC does not trigger the charger to turn off until it detects 58.3V.
