Default Need help with a club car

Ok right now the batteries are charged but am having trouble getting them to charge. We have all new batteries and when they run down and you plug the charger up it does nothing to charge them and the meter doesn't move. We thought that maybe it was the charger so we borrowed a friends that we know works and got the same thing nothing. Any ideas??

How far down are you running your batts. The stickies in this section should help with new battery breakin and how to tell when you have run them down too much. Are you talking a 36v or 48v cart?How did you get them to charge?

We have a battery meter that says charge when they need to be charged. We haven't run it all the way down. This is a 48 volt. Its a 1998 club car guess I should have mentioned that.

We had to use a separate battery charger.

The meter that is on the cart is not exact from what i have been told and have experienced.Most are gonna keep you honest about your range,but there is nothing like a handheld meter you can check individual batteries and more.The charger you have, did you try it on the other guys cart?

You need to check your charger connections, give a tug on the grey wire in the back of the cart charge receptacle plug. If all wires are hooked up right, and charge receptacle is good, I'd say you have a bad OBC.

No we didn't try the charger on the other guys cart just used his charger to see if that would charge it but nothing.

I agree with fixerofcarts,sounds like a bad OBC to me to.

Would trying to reset the OBC do any good or would it better to just replace the OBC?
