Default 97 Club Car 48V

My cart would not move after sitting for several months. Battery voltage was OK 48v. Cart ran perfectly before. I replaced 1 selenoid but while doing so, I shorted the large white wire that goes to a box in the rear of the cart. Now the cart runs, but is slower than normal & is low on power when backing up an incline. The batterys also discharge much faster. Any idea how to fix the problem??

Welcome cashm, leaving the batteries discharged for several months can result in permanent damage to them. Charge the batteries and let them settle for 45 minutes to an hour..... then test each cell with a hydrometer ( $15.00 at auto parts store) record the readings for all 24 cells. Also at this time list the voltage reading for each battery. Without this info we can only tell you to take it somewhere to be tested and repaired

All the batterys were charged. Their voltage is 8.3 volts All the cells test 1250+ on specific gravity after sitting overnight, no bad cells.

Where do I go next??

Maybe you connected them wrong? do you have 48+v where you connected the cart?
Because if you have 48+v at the cart connection and all of the batteries are good then ???? what could be wrong Maybe excessive resistance in the cables or connections? Suddenly worn brushes?
