Default power drive 2 charger

My charger will not kick on, could the OBC cause this or are there any other options?

What year cart,voltage,would help diagnose things. You check the batteries? If they are run down to low it won't turn on either. Use a hand held volt meter to check the pack voltage as well as each battery. Then use the stickys in the club car section for your readings. hope this helps.

Positive about the batteries? i think you've got the 12v and they are known to failure i hear. Check each one if you can first with a voltage meter

What is your total battery pack voltage at this time? Examples 50.9... 48.6... etc. Let us know what your pack voltage is now.

Just some things in the meantime...

You have a reset button on the front of your charger, make sure it's in/reset. Also make sure you have a good AC outlet that the charger is plugged into... make sure another device works in that outlet as well.

Also if you maintain your batteries properly the 12v batteries should give you decent service. The run times might be less then having 6-8 volt batteries but there are many on here that haven't had issues... YET!

Don't be scared of the 12 Volts..... I've got a 2006 Precedent with 06 batteries and I'm still getting 88 minutes of discharge time on a Club Car discharge machine.... New batteries run about 100 on the same machine. They've been well maintained.

I have a 2006 Precedent with brand new batteries. During the battery swap, someone with "good intentions" plugged the charger in, and the battery terminal sparked when I made the final connection. Now, my PowerDrive2 charger appears "dead" - and the reset button won't reset. No power coming from the charger at all; the meter doesn't move when you unplug/plug it in a known working wall outlet.

Any and all advice on how to repair the charger is appreciated in advance.

After scouring the threads, it appears my first order of business is to determine whether the problem is my OBC or the charger - correct? I will try the OBC reset instructions, and see if that changes the results. (I know you all are sitting on the edge of your seats, waiting for that outcome...)
