Default Re: charging issues 48 voltcc

The charger should back off to low amperage draw after about 30 minutes... I would let it run like that for 4-5 hours (safely) then disconnect and read pack voltage after 30-60 minutes of settling time... full charge is here on this chart

You will have to be careful not to damage the pack by under or over charging... remember never draw the pack down below 50% ... good luck

Well you are narrowing it down, this leaves 2 possibilities. Either your relay in the charger has gone bad or the OBC has crapped out, have seen threads here where both have happened. There is a way to jump the relay to test and see if it works but Im not sure of it, hopefully someone will chime in here who knows the procedure to test the relay..good luck

if i have used my charger on another cc succesfully, does that eliminate the problem with the relay in the charger? ive also noticed that when i charge the system to 50.80 volts(voltage after i let it sit for at least an hour) the charge indicator stays below half. is the voltage indicator in communication (so to speak) with obc or directly with the battery pack? everything runs great, i just dont want to replace the(450$)obc.

thanks for everones input!

i will also go purchase specific gravity tester in the morning to get best reading on pack as possible.

First, are you saying that your charger is working on your cart at this time?

Also---are you saying you were able to try your charger on a different cart. If so did it work as it should or did it only work with relay jumped. This is in addition to the important question from Scuba---this will tell whether problem is OBC or your charger or charger relay.

charger worked as should on other cc without jumping relay on charger. so to recap situation....
charger starts on other cc when wired normal...will not start on my cc when wired normal..if i jump over the relay, the charger starts when i plug into my cc...new batteries..batteries take a charge...everything else operates as should except battery indicator..never shows full charge.
