Default Battery light blinking

I have a 1995 club car, rebuilt in 1999. Battery light blinks, on for 5 seconds, off 5 seconds, on 5 seconds, off 5 seconds, on 25 seconds, then repeats this sequence. Charger won't come on when I plug it in. (Charger works, I checked it on a different cart) Any suggestions?

How old are the batteries? Have you done a hydrometer check on each battery? All terminals/connections good?

I would start there and give an update with added information.

welcome to BGW..........i,m assuming this is a 48 volt cart?..........is your dash battery light red? lift the seat give they grey wire a pull on the back of the charge receptical and if it stays in check your battery voltage if you have over 38 volts than replace your OBC good chance it went bad i should have added yes go over cables also make sure your 10 gage wires for charging are ok......................

It is a 48volt. (6, 8volt batteries, 2 years old). The dash light is orange. I pulled the gray wire, nothing happened. Guess it's the OBC. Thanks,

if it has an orange light someone at the very least bought an OBC for it chances are installed it to but the only way to get that orange light for the cart was to buy an OBC kit......which came with the OBC a new updated light and a new grey wire.......in 1995 thur 97 they had issues with the grey wire also .........don,t be surprised if when you buy the new OBC that it comes with a dash light and a grey wire.......i wouldn,t install either of them just hang on to them.............................

Still haven't found my problem, but I have an update.
I found the red wire was loose on the charger receptacle and repaired it. However, the charger would still not come on (it only clicked).
Here is the brainteaser for me. I borrowed my neighbors cart and swapped the charger receptacles. His works on my cart. I them put my receptacle on his cart and believe it or not, IT WORKS! I switched them back and mine still won't work on my cart. It the moment I have his receptacle on my cart recharging my batteries.
Ever heard of a problem like this?

no i havn,t his receptical works on your cart and yours works on his but it won,t work on yours???? that makes no sense what so ever......the only advice i can give you is if they are working on both carts as is..................yours on his cart and his on your cart why not ask him if you can just leave them that way.
