Default 94 club car shutters now nothing

its been shuttering since I picked it up a couple years ago. The other day it took off like it usually does then totally stoped. Put the hydrometer in the cells and only 2 showed fair. I'm going to check all the cables tonight. Should I look for anything else.

It is also a lifted cart.

Getting a couple of years out bad batteries is heroic
It sounds like they need replacing?

Yeah... they've been shot for two years. Time for some new ones. You'll feel like you're driving a new cart after getting used to all that shuttering.

I was at the auto part store looking at batteries earlier, does it need to be a golf cart specific battery? What about using 3 12 volts batteries?

Yes the batteries should be golf cart specific batteries.
Golf cart batteries are designed to hold a large amount of amperage and to be discharged relatively low over a long period of time.
Automotive batteries do not store as much amperage and are designed for shallow discharge and immediate recharge. Like starting a car and having the alternator immediately begin charging.
You can connect 3 automotive 12v batteries in series and get 36v. You will not the amperage reserve or operational characteristics needed to make the batteries perform well or last satisfactorily in a golf cart.

Ok thanks for all the info. I'm on my way to get a couple of batteries now. I have to save up and get 2 at a time.

I'm replacing the 2005 batteries 1st and the other 4 are late 2008. They'll have to wait until next time.

That is a good plan if you can buy used batteries.

Do not mix new batteries with used ones unless you are willing to let the charger turn your new batteries old pretty darn quick!

The old batteries will call for a longer charge than is healthy for the new batteries, overcharging them will reduce them to the level of the majority of the pack soon..... hope this helps!
