Default Re: Need help getting to brushes (36v motor)

If you can't get them to charge with a regular charger and you can't get then to charge with a golf cart charger either both chargers are bad or the batteries are bad. Another sure sign is not lasting long and dieing fast.

What is the number stamped into the terminals on the batteries?

Sonicj--Yes CC Moly-Teflon lub is expensive $7.92 for tube and its only enough for "ONE" motor shaft lub job, as to properties unknown ( may be same as other lubs ) but I find that you wont have shaft sticking if used and is "CORRECT AMOUNT" so nothing gets into motor area.

Numbers on batteries are as follows: "4" on the negative post and "8 B Y" on the positive. There is also "A31N" stamped on the top plastic itself.

Forget it. I just learned the batteries are toast. I got screwed.

Crap I wish people would research before they buy, I'm not knocking you Jon, Just ... we see the same scenario repeated here often... If anyone considering a golf cart purchase reads this please bring a voltmeter & a hydrometer to the test drive.

Amen to that brotha' basically I bought a cart with newer batteries (2008 date code) that have been cooked, likely due to low water according to the battery shop. When they are pulled out you can see some bulging in the body. The motor had a stripped lug/broken coil inside.... and now the charger crapped out likely from trying to charge the bad batteries. What a great experience so far. The battery shop owner sells carts and may buy mine for what I got in it. I actually would have done better buying a Melex 48volt I seen for $400 that needed batteries. $400 cart + $600 trojans = $1,000 golf cart with great new batteries. Melex carts come with superior Curtis electronics and Dana gearbox from what I heard too.

....oppps add insult to injury. I ordered a battery charger 1 hour beofre learning the batteries are bad from LVS Sales. I called them 1 hour after ordering the charger to cancel and they said they could not cancel, the charger had already shipped out UPS. Funny 1 hour after ordering UPS already had the charger yet they didn't have a tracking number when asked. The website says 3-5 DAYS processing yet they got it on the UPS truck in 1 hour, hmmmmm.... that's odd. Then they put me on hold and never come back. I hang up and call my card company to learn the charge was put in at the same time I called (~3:00pm CST). They must have put me on hold then ran my card info before I cancelled. I call them back again and the only lady who can actually do anything for me has already gone home. The other employees are not capable of running the company??? I guess they just hang out and look good until quitting time.

I guess if I get another cart I may need the charger and sell the one that comes with it. It is a 36 or 48 volt switchable. I will just make sure every branch of every forum on every golf cart website on the internet hears of my experience with LVS Sales....Did I mention it was LVS Sales???

LVS is weird, your lucky they even took your call. Last story I heard about then was someone who called them trying to order a part, the guy on the phone kept saying they don't do phone orders, net only so to place the order online. It's things like that is the reason we don't want them sponsoring here. The only good thing LVS has is their chargers. If it wasn't for that no one would mention them.
