If those readings are correct those batteries are toast. If your not familiar with using a meter make sure you are getting a good connection with the meter probes. Will your lights and horn work if the charger is not hooked up?

A -reading means you have the leads reverse polarity. reverse them on the battery. It will not change the voltage reading. So just post whateverugot. LOL

Okay, take a pic of the hook up. Those are the craziest readings I have ever seen.

The lights and horn didn't work when I got the cart. He said the charger was bad and the cart was dead. I talk to a guy that works on carts he told me to put the car charger on one battery for one hour. So I did that and the lights and horn work now. But the the cart will still not move. I was told by the guy that works on carts. That if the batterys were so low that the charger won't pick up charge and work.

That is correct but according to those reading the batteries are screwed. if it were me....I would charge each one and try to get a full charge on them. Those readings are so low the batteries will be hurt. (if the readings are correct)

So should I just put the car charger on them for about one hour each battery?

So should the batterys read 12.0 each?

"If" those readings were correct 1 hour will not bing them up enough to make the cart charger kick on. "If" those readings were correct those batteries are toast and no amount of charging will bring them up and stay up. A 12 volt battery should never fall below 12 volts (80% of full charge. 2.3 volts per cell x 6 cells=13.8 volts) Those are showing 0% of charge (If the readings were correct) Stick the charger on one of them overnight and put it in auto and go to bed......then check it in the morning. If its over 12 volts go ahead and try to charge the rest of them. The solenoid should not even click unless it has 36 volts.
