Default Charger Output

How can I test the voltage output of my charger. It has to be pulged into the cart to work?

My charger is a PowerDrive2 Model 22144.
It's a 48 volt, although my cart is 36 volts. Came with it.
Thank you

You gotta be joking? You have THE WRONG CHARGER - You can't charge a 36 volt cart with a 48 volt charger...

The charger has to "see" a set limit of voltage from the cart to turn itself "on". Even if it did come on - your batteries would be toast from the 48 volt charging limits. You could also have a CC Charger that requires a computer cart to work. If you have a 36 volt cart, you won't have the computer.

You need to contact your seller ASAP...
I'm assuming that this is a new purchase?

OK..sorry, my mistake..it's a 48 volt system. The charger turns on when connected. There are 6 ECG8 Batteries in the system. The serial number starts with DS which means 48 voilts.
Can I connect a volt meter to check the charger output?
Thank you

DS doesn't mean 48v they made DS model carts from 1984-2004 36, 48v and gas! So your batteries have 4 holes to put water in? Then 8v Xs 6 = 48v... U can use a voltmeter to check the out put while charging.

Since U are new ,
Keep batteries clean and filled (distilled water only)
Charge cart after each usage .
Keep battery cables clean and tight (replace every 6-8 years)
