They are lower than I remember. However, I could not see the tops of any of the plates.

The connections appear fine. I need to go buy some distilled water and then plug the charger back in.

If it doesn't come on then we'll need to bypass the Charger/OBC to give it a kick start. I'll post a picture here of the same charger you have and how to bypass it.

Bought the distilled water and filled them up. Now I have the charger plugged back in and we'll see what happens.

What does the gauge show while it's charging?

The gauge shows zero. I then did the multimeter again and it shows exactly 40.0 volts.

OK, then it's time to try the bypass. Can you understand the picture and what to connect in your charger, (making sure you have it unplugged at both ends first!)?

Have no idea what's going on in the picture. Actually, I have never done anything to this cart other than plug-in the charger.

This may be more than what I can handle. What kind of tools does this require?

A Phillips screw driver should be all you need.

With both the AC cord and the Charger cord removed from their outlets, remove the screws on the charger cover, 4 on each side. It will look just like the picture I posted earlier. Where it says to remove and jump these 2 wires, do just that. That's it for the bypass and the only thing left is to plug the charger into the wall outlet, then plug the DC cord into your cart. The charger should come on like you are used to seeing and hearing and the amp meter should show near the 15 amp mark. If this is the case then let it charge for a couple of hours. Unplug the charger from the cart and the wall. Put the two wires back where they were, put the cover back on the charger and charge your cart the normal way.

I am going to print out your note and try that in the morning. Glad you said the only thing I needed was a screwdriver. Was starting to get nervous :-)

I will give that a try first thing in the morning. Thank you.

I am getting ready to try this. In step 2, what does it mean "to jump these 2 wires".

Please let me know. Thanks.
