Default Re: cart goes swimming

for the record,
it wasn't powered up it rolled in reverse after my son accidentally hit brake.

it was pulled out using a neighbors cart.
it was sprayed down heavily at the contacts with wd 40 and driven immediately.


side note that may help with diagnosis.
for the last couple years most times when it rained, or high humidity it wouldn't work in reverse.once the sun came out and dried up everything lawn,concrete,street etc. it would begin working.

Your cart has a computer and a solid state controller. Neither of these things are expected to survive being submerged while powered up ....
i will get the reading for you.
but you understand she wasn't charging it because it necessarily needed charging.she was charging because she was planning a long ride for the following day.
it had plenty juice.

the charger gauge when hooked up registers midway......
after several hours drops to resting position on gauge.

The charger is charging and shutting off when done. The full pack voltage can be found on this chart .... For the record, never discharge below 50% capacity....

Pack Voltage is from the Positive + of first battery to Neg - lead of last Battery.
Pack Voltage is always done 30 minutes after Charger is unplugged (No Charging)
