Default Re: Charger Problem?

ok, I got it done. From the - female at charge port to positive on battery pack
is 35.7v....from + at charge port to battery pack is 48.6v. I plugged the charger in after about a 20 minute ride and it ran for about 5 minutes before cutting off. The readings after that were 36.6v and 49.6v. The amber battery light came on for about 20 seconds and went off twice. Does this help any? I really appreciate all of your help.

OK, your batteries are not wired properly. The plug as well as the entire pack should be nearly the same, maybe 1 or 2 volts off at the most.

Where you are taking your readings should match the main (-) and the main (+) to get the same readings.

I only had one cable off at a time... Didn't even loosen any nuts other than the one I was working on. Any ideas on what i could have done?

OK so here's what it sounds like you may have done--you inadvertently put the smaller gauge wire which is from the charger receptacle on the wrong battery post when you were reinstalling your cables. Go to the cart and follow the wires from the charge receptacle and look and make sure the positive is going to the the beginning of the pack, and make sure the neg. is going to the end of the pack--dont assume its right--LOOK AGAIN--I think you made a little slip with the little wire for the charge receptacle circuit

Sorry to drive you crazy but... I'm reading this again to make sure:

Putting your (+) meter lead into the female charge port &

Putting your (-) meter lead into the female (-) charger port

you should get near your full pack voltage of 48+.

It doesn't look like you did this. Am I wrong here? Can you make sure to test your charger port this way first?

I have to say Scuba, that was a really good test. And going off the results he posted, going from the neg. of charge receptacle to battery positive only gave him 35.7 volts, I would have to assume that he messed up the negative wire for the charge receptacle and put it on the wrong battery terminal--Blayne--really check those locations of the charge receptacle wires on your battery pack--I think Scuba found your problem for ya

Thanks for all of y'alls help. I mistook what you wanted me to check but i just got back from jacking with it some more. My + from the charger recepticle is going to my last + on my battery pack and the - from the charger goes through some wire loom to a little thing(excuse my ignorance) and then to the controller. I sure appreciate the help. Time for some more beers.....they enlighten me but that doesn't help when i have no idea what i am doing. Thanks.
