That's correct.... 58.3 to be exact. It will reach that voltage, and continue to run a tad bit longer, no more than an hour or so usually after it reaches that point. I don't tell people to check it until it gets to 5 Amps or below because the voltage isn't high enough until it reaches the 5 Amp mark. In this guy's situation, his charger is turning on, and running until it charges up enough to get all the way down to 3 amps, yet he only has 48 volts... never seen it in my life...

Default Re: Automatic Charging

What about the 3 batteries that won't charge any higher than 7 volts? The charger will drop off to 0 input but does not shut down so what does it do in that mode if it charge's the Battery's up and she uses it and then plugs it back in every day what will it really hurt? I understand that it not right and to be honest the Guy that had it could have done anything to it I personally think he took out the good Battery's and replaced them with some from His Cart I don't know if it matters but the charger has been droped sometime in the past it has a big dent in 1 corner but it must be a common issue because jackets are for sale every where. Please let me know what else I can test if there are any modifcations that can be made my Buddy has a whole bunch of machine building parts from transformers to diode's so I can come up with something maybe I see that in the for sale side of this site several people have the Club Car 48 volt systems for sale that they claim were working great me I don't trust in that if they worked great why did they remove them? And what do they use for a Upgrade I know that I wined about spending extra $ but that is mainly because I feel like I got screwed again and it makes me mad. When it comes down to it I will spend what I need to to fix this correctly and worry about getting the money back later I won't take it to her as a troublesome unit it has to be the best that I can make it living 250 miles away I only get up there 2-3 times a year but have friends that can help It has to work correctly so Guys if I need to purchase a different type of on board charger so be it but I want it to be the most reliable 1 there is so maybe we need to think about that!

Dave again you are not understanding me it was at 3 amps but if I had let it run longer the meter would have went dall of the way down to 0 and the charger would just sit there and hum

Dave please read all of my last post again I said that after rechecking it I had 55 volts and with the 3 battery's that only charge to 7 and 7.
5 volts that makes up the differance beteween the 55 amps and 58.5 please read it ahgain or call me 502-275-1153 I am not getting it across correctly I guess its at 55 volts and the charger was still running but 3 battery's on't charge over 7 volts and 7.5 does that not make up the differance of the 3.5 volts?????

You're right. But I was hoping it would be short and sweet and put some informative information on the board. Guess not.

I understand you perfectly. I'm trying to help you figure out why it won't turn off. That's why I want PACK VOLTAGE. I'm calling you

I called him. He was checking on-charge voltage of 5 batteries instead of 6. Getting Approximately 48V on-charge. Also, about 55 volts on-charge across entire pack. He's got three batteries that are absolute toast. I think we've reached an answer! Batteries!

Unforuntally for me yes but I am going to give the Epson Salt trick a try I have nothing to lose if it works and they will all charge completly I can then test drive it and see how far they will take her and how long they last because she will be plugging it in every night and it will get a full charge it might just last for a couple more years before replacing the battery's but if not I will buy 6 new ones and be done with it and get on with mounting the charger in the cart painting etc.. thanks again for all of the help and I have your phone number if I get stuck on something.
