Default Re: Charging System Troubleshooting

i have 5 of these carts. I can charge them all using different chargers (it is just one charger that will not charge any of the carts), so I am assuming it is the charger not anything to do with the carts. I opened the charger and have 120 volts on both sides of the circuit breaker, I have jumped across the two black wires - one from circuit breaker, one going to the transformer to bypass the relay, this still does not cause anything to happen, (no hum when plugged in and no movement on the amp meter.
Does anyone have suggestions on where I go from here? Should these chargers work when the relay is bypassed in this manner? Is there a way of checking the rectifier? This one has 2 strips with terminals on them that I am guessing are some kind of diode strips that are the rectifier. Is there a way of checking the transformer?
Thank you in advance for your help.

I haven't tried this yet but I look forward to working on a club car precedent this weekend. A local store owner told me it was going to to cost an average of $800 and mentioned confidentially that I had a bad battery pack which needed to be replaced. I'm just trying to spend the least amount of money but will give this a try! Anything else you would reccomend besides the on board computer and relay? I noticed some corrosion and binding cover battery #1's positive terminal.

If your charger (PowerDrive type, using the OBC) clicks on but shows no amperage on the meter, check your battery wiring first (especially to the positive) before you assume that the charger or OBC is bad.

Lockman1, in his original post about troubleshooting said in the second point of Step 2 "Make sure that the red wire is in good shape and follow it all the way to the MAIN positive battery post. Make sure there is a good connection on the battery and ensure that the wire isn't corroded or broken. If it is, clean it and re-attempt to charge the vehicle."

This is good advice. My charger showed no amperage over a number of attempts such as plugging it in again or cycling the power to the charger. After switching to Tow, I pulled the wires off each terminal, cleaned them thoroughly with a wire brush and covered them with Vaseline as I put them back and checked the tightness of the connection. They were not badly corroded, just showed a little black on the terminal which I cleaned off.

The charger then worked perfectly and has continued to work perfectly.

If this does not fix your problem, then start taking the other troubleshooting advice given in this thread.
