I understand what your saying.But the one connection from my controller to the battery is the one that is boiling and the others are bulging.
Thanks

I'm not sending you rabbit hunting...... You got an analog meter. I sent you for a digital meter. I would return it and get one of the ones without a needle. However, you can do limited inaccurate testing with this subject to a lot of user mis reading...... It just isn't the meter you needed...... BUT all that said there is a 250 volt DC testing range at 3:00 on the dial face. This should give us the readings....... Still return it!

your meter:

Bubbling is normal.... boiling like a pot on the stove is not....excessive bubbling indicates overcharging .... usually caused by weak or bad battery when the charger can not read a voltage high enough to shut it off properly, It just keeps cooking them which leads to excessive heat within the batteries which leads to the bulged sides you are asking about..... all aged batteries have some of this bulging

does he charge to come out.I looked under my controller,and about six months ago I repaired a wire that was to the ignition switch up front that was burnt to crisp.Do you think I might have wired it wrong and thats why I am having these problems?Scotty your da man! So once again, does he charge for inspection and testing?
Thanks again

rasta78 , STOP
speculating and deal with one thing at a time .

1. Get the correct meter (digital) , and learn how to read it.

You have 3 threads started and all need for you read and post Battery Voltage(s).
Calm down 1 thing at a time :) BATTERIES

I don't think anyone makes house calls for free. Contact him and get a price.
You say you have your batteries out already so load them up and take them to be tested.
