Battery Voltage and charging cycle
I have a 05 DSIQ cart with 4 12 volt batteries. It was charging fine a couple of weeks ago. I have since traveled with the cart (about 300 miles) and since then it seems to be having charging issues.
The charger comes on but gets a bit hotter than normal, not enough for me to worry as it does cool down as it charges.
I let it run the 16 hour cycle and it shut off, I plugged in at 2pm ish and it was around 10-15 on the meter, at 10pm it was hovering at 5 (it seems to like that number).
At 6:30 am it was off.
I checked each battery they read 15.3 and rising as I let the meter sit on the terminals, got to about 15.5.
Across the pack I had 59 ish, give or take.
I plugged the charger back in to check voltage while on charge....70 volts...yikes!
I don't have a hydrometer to test each cell....will be getting one today. Does this sound like a bad battery???
I am ruling out the OBC as it turned off within the 16 hour cycle, at least it appears to have done that.
Thanks for your help!
