Default Re: 48 volt charger not charging batteries

Yes we did go from the v-glide to the potentiometer. I will try the charging and go from there. I will post the results. However, I am not sure that the cart has a OBC. How would I be able to tell this?

the negative lead from the battery will pass through a white plastic looking box on its way to the controller.

The OBC should have the 48 volt pack ground wire ( drivers side rear battery's NEGATIVE cable running through the center of it ). Batterys have PLUS side which is power side and a MINUS or NEGATIVE side which is ground. With a rewire it may be hard to tell as location may be different than stock which is on older carts behind seat, under body near motor location.
By the way can you give me model number and serial number off your Lestronic charger as I am wondering if it does not require a OBC but has built in internal control? To explain Lester Electrical makes chargers for Club Car AND ALSO sells their own line of chargers and this could be a reason for NOT needing a OBC?
Really your first piority should be to check condition of batterys as in previous posts as one or more of them could be going bad, and it may not be a charger problem at all?

Thank you for the information. I have to wait until we go back out to our campground. Probably within the next couple of weeks. I will then check the batteries and get the charger info and post it here.
