Default Charging troubles

I have replaced the fuse behind the charger receptacle. The charger did click on, began charging and then stopped after about 15 minutes. Can I the batteries be charged with an car charger?

If you have some one near by that you can borrow their like charger is best and easiest way. If not possible, remove inline fuse from wire out of back of charge receptical going to number 6 battery ( back battery under drivers seat ) negative ground and jumper with piece of wire and if when charger is pluged in it should continue to charge means OBC is bad? NOTE dont charge batterys that way as it wont shut down and will damage batterys.

Lightbulb Re: Charging troubles

chargers will only click on if overall battery bank voltage is above 27 volts or so. I have had this issue with one of my carts.

SOLUTION:
check voltage of batt bank
if voltage is low open charger there is a relay inside of the charger
remove relay (write down or take a picture of wiring)
connect the thicker guage wires together
it is easy to tell which wires need to go together...
plug charger into cart THEN PLUG INTO WALL.
cart should charge...
after charging for several hours you should be able to put the charger back the way it was.

Thanks everyone for the quick replies. With your help and the manuals I downloaded, I figured the problem was with my charger. So, I took the charge to a local golf course and they gave it the once over and determined the CHARGER RELAY was bad. After replacing the relay the charger worked just fine, now it is presently charging up the cart. Hope it is still charging and at least charged up by the time I make it home this evening. It not I may have another issue to fix. If so, I will be back again looking for a little help. Thanks again for your assistance.
