I have not been able to drive the cart around the block a few times and re-test with the voltmeter. Will do that today at some point and let you know.

Thanks.

I hope that everything is OK. I'd also take a voltage reading just before you take it for a ride to use that as a starting point.

The reading before was 51 volts. Then I drove it around the block and it was down to 50.7 volts.

I usually charge the cart at night. During the day, what should voltage normally read?

At what reading should I start getting concerned? I don't want the situation like what happened the other day where the golf cart goes completely dead without warning.

Well the good news is that it looks like everything is OK and that so far they look normal. Just use your cart like you normally do and always make sure you put the charger on at night. If you want to make sure that you never have what happened before happen again, get an analog meter installed on your cart. They are very easy to install and act as your fuel gage, letting you know when it's time to charge it before running it down to low. The Golden Rule is to never take them down past 50% which would be 48.41 volts with your voltmeter. You can take this reading after a few minutes of off time, 5-7, to get the most accurate reading from your pack.

Well we sure did a lot of nothing didn't we... but it was fun! I did learn to make sure I ask for individual battery readings as well as pack voltage if something like this occurs again with others...

Good luck!

I learned quite a bit regarding my golf cart. Thank you for your assistance.

I'm curious as to how you're calculating 48.41 volts as 50% if they are 52 volts when fully charged?

Please look at this link for a table on battery state of charge

Can you buy an analog gauge without having to cut a hole or install somehow? Is there a portable one that I can just leave in the cart and use periodically?

And I took a much longer drive in the cart this time. It's reading 50.7 volts so it appears I am good shape.

Thanks again for the the help.

You can purchase a gauge that will fit in the pre-marked position just below the steering wheel shaft on the dash, a little to the left. It's a rectangle box that can be cut out with a razor. Just behind that, inside the dash are 2 wires waiting to be plugged into for that exact reason, a gauge. The dash is held on by three torque screws.

(OR)

Have someone do it for you... but get it done! Attached is an option for a Precedent from CC in the dash in the spot I spoke about above.
