Ok put the voltmeter across the pack and it went upto 50 volts after the click and stayed there.

I have also tried resetting the OBC as per the sticky by GLEEMO but still have the same problem.

I will try the ODC bypass as per scubabud suggested tomorrow and post back

Please leave the charger on since it will increase a little at a time, not all at once. If it went to 50 once turned on see what it reads after 1 hour, etc. If it's going up then it's working.

When you say "The negative (-) line/wire coming from the back of your cart charger receptacle needs to have spliced to it a wire from your final negative post of your battery pack."

do i need to cut the neg black wire and crimp a wire to it that goes to the neg on last battery

Once bypassed if your charger comes on then it's your OBC, if not then it's your charger, (maybe!)

NO! Don't cut the wire, just use a splice connector to add a wire to the existing lead. Any hardware store sells them. Always try and keep solid wire connections SOLID when possible.

Yes, #9 is one of 2 3/8amp fuses in the system the other is at the solenoid(if you have it)? Darn CC....
In the pic at *9 is where he is telling you to connect the recepticle side of that fuse holder to the pack neg and see if the charger kicks on..... BUT I suspect another problem since you are saying that the charger is coming on , just weak? A bad transformer in the charger can do this..... it is best right now if you can have your charger tested on another cart at a repair shop. Or test a known good charger on your cart ..... Really simply tests compared to CC diagnostics.

I believe you have the wrong wire. I'm attaching a PDF that shows it as well. Match it with your first pic a few posts prior, notice the wire taking a bend in the picture and in the PDF file, it's the Neg from the outlet.
