Please let me know. Thanks.
Place them together, as if they were one wire using a piece of metal that can slide inside each connector end of each wire with a good solid fit each. Make sure that this bare wire or piece of metal doesn't touch anything once it's inserted.!!!!!

If you have a fuse like the one in the picture you can use that as well... just use one that is at least 15 amps or higher.

I don't have anything like that. Where can I buy this?

It doesn't have to be a fuse that I showed, just something that is similar to it or a piece of metal that can slip inside each connector. If you must buy a fuse, any auto parts store carries them.

The important thing here is to see if you can get those batteries back up to some sort of decent level. Right now at 38-40 volts they are way below 10% and might never come back. This is going to be your last shot. I also wonder why the charger won't come on if your pack voltage is above the 32-34 volts stated in the charger manual needed to come on... you are above that now so this also is a test to see if you can get the charger going by doing a bypass.

Get those wires together, place the charger in a safe place since the case is open so that no one touches anything inside it, plug it into the wall outlet, plug it into the cart and hopefully we'll see the meter peg to the right giving the batteries the juice they need to begin their struggle back up to where they should be. One more thing, once this is going use your voltemeter to see what voltage is while charging and post it back here as well!

I figured out the bypass.

I connected the voltmeter and while it was charging it read 47 volts. However, the charger shutoff about 20 minutes later.

I connected the voltmeter again and it shows 40 volts.

Do I leave the charger connected even though it still reads zero?

Did the charger blow a circuit breaker? It's on the front of the unit, a small rocker switch. Try resetting it first and let us know. Also did you use a fuse for the bypass and if you did, is it still OK or did it blow, (would look burnt in the center and/or metal fuse strip would look broken in the center.)

It did not blow a circuit breaker. The rocker switched seemed fine. I did not use a fuse for the bypass.

I noticed that the voltmeter reads 46 volts during the charging process. However, it goes back down to 40 volts once the charging is completed.

Is there anything else to try at this point?

Yes, try unplugging both cords... wait a few seconds then plug back in again and see what happens while also watching the gauge on the front of the charger.
That should show pegging over to the right side or near the 15 amp point. Does it when the charger turns on and is connected to the cart or does it stay to the left? I'll explain in a bit why I asked this... seems there is something different about Precedent OBC's and trying to bypass the charger.

I disconnected and reconnected the cords.

The gauge meter slowly moved up to about 5 and then back down to 3 where it is now.

OK... the OBC is not letting the charger do it's thing. We need to do one more thing if you are up to it. Shut the charger down for the time being.
