Is it ok to test these with the cart jacked up or should it be on the ground driving?

On the ground driving it! That is what's going to provide the load. Level ground too not downhill or anything like that. (it's ok if the cart is so weak that it won't move)Spinning the wheels in the air takes a fraction of the power that it takes to accelerate and move the weight of the whole cart and driver so you would be fooling yourself with the results of a jackstand run.

I will get those readings on Friday - thank you.
I guess you do believe it is a battery problem...
Thanks for your help!

It's not a matter of believing just why assume things and then go down the wrong diagnostic path when it does not cost anything to do that simple test.

A few posts earlier when I quoted somebody else's battery readings those batteries are just 5 or 6 months old and how good those resting voltages looked untill he attempted to take off!

I don't claim to be an expert,but this is the logical thing to check first that's all

No problem - I am a mechanical junkie and understand the troubleshooting you ask for. I was just thinking that the cart was running fine earlier in the day and I was wondering how to troubleshoot controller and OBC - thats all. I will get those reading asap and we'll take it from there.

Batteries are the place to begin when troubleshooting speed issues . . . eliminate the most expensive repair first . .

To me it is more like somebody borrows my motorcycle and comes back saying hey it died! The first thing I would check is does it have gas in it?
Before taking the carburators off or suspecting anything else.
