This is one of the reasons that I think everyone should be schooled in DIGITAL METER usage BEFORE being allowed near a golf cart? They are so sensative and give some WRONG IDEAS??
Yes there are times when the meter is showing correctly but this is a common FORUM POST.
I desided to do some testing on my own and mount a LED light between the frame and battery outer case ( WITH BATTERY PLUS CABLE UNHOOKED ) and found NO LIGHT, then I wet battery down and light came on? I then installed a digital meter and read full battery voltage? I took a ( brand new 8 volt battery ) and did the same with meter and showed 8 volts voltage from outer case to ground. I did the same with an LED light and it came on again?
THEN I cleaned the above batterys with baking soda and water and a brush and allowed them to dry and found the digital meter STILL WAS SHOWING but only small ( tenths of volts ) readings, the LED light would come on DIMMLY but enough to see?
Then I took my old reliable WW2 test meter that I have used for over 60 years and of course there was NO reading on volt meter BUT THE NEEDLE DID BOUNCE A LITTLE WHEN CONNECTED??
Conclusion-- Digital meters should be used for correct readings ACROSS BATTERY POSTS, BUT NOT FROM electric cart frames to battery packs?
MY .02 WORTH?

SERIOUSLY SCOTTYB is that good and he deserves all the praise he can get. He gets paid NOTHING for all his time and other things that he does for others and with so much knowledge he really should be paid?
