Disconnect the Neg post on last battery.
Take meter and set to ohms .
Measure across the large wires on the solenoid if Ohms goes to 0 ( or 1) , it's stuck.
If it stays at Max it's not the solenoid ,
Report results here

PS if you are going to buy a meter, get a digital readout (more accurate)

So its a 1999 Ds.......thanks. I wasn't positive on the year. I was just going off a little sticker that said 2001. I guess that could have meant anything.

I checked the solenoid and it read 0. So I am going to replace it this weekend and I will let you know the feed back. Thanks.

Replaced the solenoid. Fixed most of the problem. Not sure where and how to check the resistor and diode. I charge my batteries and they last about a mile down the street. I have never did any maintenance on these batteries. Do you just fill them with regular water? What level should they be at? Thanks.

Would a bad resistor or diode drain the batteries? (BTW, I don't even know where or what these items are)

No they wont drain your batteries,they just make the solenoid work.You use distilled water ONLY. If your batteries are full of water and they are clean and your cables are clean and tight then I would say you have a bad battery in the pack.

I have a volt meter with all kind of different settings. Which setting do I use and do I disconnect the batteries from each other to test them?
