Look at chart in STICKIES " State Of Charge Readings" it will give you exact % of charge according to your tests. Too often people think a 48 volt pack is fully charged at 48 volts when in truth at 48 volts it would only be about 60% charged. With new quality batterys your wont be up to full power but your readings will be close.

Old MEC:

I hear what your saying but each battery cables disconnected tested out 8.5-8.6. They are not New, but I do take care of them. Also, I ran a test just for grinns and bypassed the relay on the Powerdrive charger just to see, and still acted them same; so I don't believe the problem is with the Batteries or the charger. No V at Solenoid, and no click, and no V when Solenoid bypassed still leads me to believe I have a Bad Noid.

I'm back ,
I am attaching a 1995 DS PowerDrive manual (same as your cart).
Go to section 17 page 7 (part that says cart won't start solenoid won't click)

There are 9 possible things which can cause this , start at the first 1 and work U'r way through.

PS. Test procedures start on page 17 - 12

Let me know what happens.

check the fuse

I am curious what was happening that made you change out the charger receptacle, not a common repair. There is a small in-line 3/8ths amp fuse in a yellow holder in the gray wire at the rear of the receptacle. If that fuse is bad the cart will charge if I remember right, Your batteries sputtered some life then next time too dead to even sputter? IDK. check the fuse & use nothing but OEM if needed.

I replaced Recepticle b/c the pos/neg connectors on the other end had gotten pushed too hard and would come out when DC from charger was put in; so too charge last fall I would have too place DC push back on connectors within from the back then hook up AC to charge...not too safe! The recepticle change was a pretty easy fix, and all hooked up correctly, and fuse is fine. If I take fuse out I get nothing, no quick jump from charger, etc.

If batteries are reading 8.5-8.6 each, and 50.4 at the pack, and ohms test on F&R micro, have tried to rest OBC 4-5 times, and still nothing. Solenoid made sound now doesn't make sound, unless bypassed, but still no V at solenoid...I'm thinking its the Noid.

Bad OBC = controls one side of the solenoid activation

In those early OBC carts the first generation of the OBC was used. It is a flawed design and few are still functioning correctly 15+ yrs later...

With the cart on jacks you could make a small jumper to bring pos and neg to the solenoid activation circuit. (you may just need the negative side, that should get the solenoid activating) With Gleemo's help here to find if the cart runs.... if it does I think it is the OBC

Good info scotty thanks .
So skip to the last test in the list which I think is OBC test.

attached is a picture of how to jump the charger to bypass OBC
