HEY, WHAT ARE ALL THE BATTERY READINGS?
When down 8.29 battery is okay
7.89 is shot.
Try this. Check the water. Charge all the batteries. 30 minutes afterthe charger turns off read all the batteries. Give each a # and list the readings for all 6 here. IE:
#1 = 8.89
#2 = 8.29
etc. It just may be that you have one weak battery that could be exchanged with another good used one to improve the pack.
How's the bake sale plans going?

Lockman's right.

Those aren't the highest #s but they are nice and even......Noticed the cover is off the charger. Have you had a problem with it? Have you tried another charger? You shuldn't run those batts below 8v ever. Try recharging more often. Hows the bake sale plans coming along?

Had it off to bypass the broken breaker switch that I thought was keeping the thing from charging before you guys taught me the batteries were too low to start charging. Ordered a new one, guy said it shouldn't hurt anything to bypass it for a while. Fundraising plans are in the works.

Anyone going to answer me about the dashboard charge meter? It's not lighting up.

Thanks again for all the help.

Meter not lighting up? Good. Saving juice!
Really does it have a light bulb? What voltage is it? Have you determined the bulb is good? Is ground present? Is it a led type?

Alameda, There is a screw on the upper left and right side of the center console. Remove them and take hold of the console with both hands lifting up and out. You should get the whole enchilada.

Drove the cart to the high school yesterday, made it no problem and seemed strong at the end. Thanks for all the help on this. Guess we'll drive it until the batteries totally crap out. Thanks again...out.
