Default Hot hot hot

Put the 36v cart away after a short drive, lifted the seat to charge Batteries, and smelled Electric heat.
Touched the wire between nbr 1 and 2 Batteries and burned my fingers. The neg post on nbr 1 was so hot I could not touch it.
Removed the wire and found a small amount of corrosion, not much, could not see it until I removed the wire from the Battery.
Is corrosion resistance the cause of this? Both batteries show 5.96v. All others
are 6.05 plus.
Nbr 1 is brand new, nbr 2 is 2 months old.

Loose or corroded connections, even slight, will cause overheating of the cables.

Let everything cool down, scrape or wire brush all terminals and connectors. Make sure they are shiny and bright. Then reinstall the cable.

Next time you drive it, stop after a few minutes and check the temperature of that cable as compared to all of the others.

If it continues to get hot, replace that cable. Hopefully all is good inside the overheated battery post.

If all is well, coat the terminals with vaseline to prevent additional corrosion issues.

Others here may add to this recommendation.

Thanks Tom, I suspect the cable is bad, looks like it is swollen, will replace it tomorrow.
