The fuse is probably good. The next thing I would try is to force the charger on, by using the first method I listed at the beginning of this thread. Watch the ammeter on the charger. This is a temporary fix to bypass the OBC if your batteries are too low. Although this should be safe, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

I have aquestion about the PowerDrive 48v charger. Can I use it to charge 4 12 volt batteries that aren't hooked to an OBC, like for automotive use?? I know a little about electronics, and what it seems to me is that from what I read in your post is that the "gray" "sense" wire from the charger is looking for a voltage less than what the "red" wire is reading. But, a charger charges with amps, not volts. I'm I totally off track here??

The only thing that I don't get is that what regulates and tells the charger to shut off after batteries are fully charged? 16 hours? That doesn't make sense. Doesn't an automotive battery charger shut off when it sees the voltage and amp readings from the positive and negative terminal are where they are supposed to be?

I will start by apologizing if I missed the answer to my question in this thread.
I plug in my charger and I get nothing.
But if I bypass the relay by connecting the power wire from the fuse to the common that goes to the transformer it turns on and I get a reading on the meter.
Is this enough to tell me the relay is bad and second can I leave it like this in a pinch to charge the cart? Just so you all know I only turned it on for 30 seconds.
