If your sure all your connections and wires and lugs are in good shape then your controller has failed. What is your voltage on the - side of the big post on your solenid when the pedal is down?

The readings for a load test are relative to the load applied and the length of time it is applied as well as the SG of the battery at the start of the test.... Under certain circumstance these readings could all indicate good batteries.
We need to know the particulars of this test.

well scotty i was thinkin the same think almost but anytime i get readings like that it scares me and many more times than not thats where the problem is...........i wouldn,t have been concerned if it were just 1 battery but 5 of them i think i would spend more time making sure whats going on with them.........i,m thinking theres at least 1 of them that is worse than the reading and if so thats all it takes..................................

so I believe the problem is with the potentiometer - linkage in it may be worn.... I am removing it now to double check.

I think they are 8V batteries.
The first number is static reading ,the second # is under attempting to take off! Since the cart really does not move hence not much voltage drop happens compared to the static number. When he gets it going and the batteries have to do work at taking off with the cart,I'm sure the drop will be a little more!

Yes, it is 8 volt batteries.
It is for sure something with the plastic linkage at the potentiometer. I will have to get a new one. After taking it apart it and putting back, it is working great now, but I believe that when you depress gas to take emergency brake off it may be falling out of the little fork at the potentiometer (can't believe how much I have used that word today!)
Thanks all so much for your help!
