Default 1992 Club Car Potential Problem

Hello Folks,

To start with it, it is great to have a place to come and receive helpful information. I have no idea about anything to do with a golf cart.

I am an avid golf and have no need for major power or anything like that. I was given this golf cart which is currently running. I decided to put 6 brand new batteries in it because the previous ones were very old.

To start with when I changed the batteries the reverse buzzer stopped working so that could mean that I did something wrong, however the main problem is that I have barley enough power to climb any slopes and reverse will barely work.

The new batteries seemed to have changed no power level but really dont know if they should have.

Can ya'll please enlighten me on anything to try.

Thanks
Brett

you need to break the new batts in right which means the 1st 10 to 12 charge/discharge cycles should be complete........when you charge it leave it go until charger shuts off by itself than run cart to about 50 % battery life and than complete charge.......very important that these are complete charge cycles as new batts are only 70 to 75% when new...........once they are broke in you will notice a difference in speed and runtime..........also keep in mind reverse is only 1/2 speed so 36 volts means reverse runs at 18 volts...........i hope you didn,t do to many charge cart for 6 or 7 hours than use and repeat because your batts are going to pay a price for that so if its not to late get them broke in....................................than its all about battery maintence that makes all the difference in the world......................................

I may have screwed up becasue I put the batteries in and used the cart. Everytime I play when I get back I put it on charge.

Hopefully okay.

So I dont have any motor etc. problems huh.

Someone had told me my motor, controller etc may be getting weak

Thanks

most people don,t know how very important it is to break the batts in right..........its a must and will make all the difference as far as speed, and runtime........than like i said after that its all about maintence........these are the 2 most important things to keep up on with an elec. cart.....................what worries me is that you may never get your new batts to 100% now and may end up very unhappy with them this unless they are under warranty and somehow are defective which will get you a new set to start fresh with........i know i shouldn,t put those thoughts out there but its a lot of money to spend only to have to spend it again a lot sooner that you should have to................good luck with them and leave the charger do its thing maybe you,ll get lucky maybe not..................................
