sorry ....adament on fuse issues..no disrespect intended
i understand but have you looked at the fuse that is in there and the one on front of charger? what are they made from? neither of them would have any effects on batteries other than not letting the cart charge.........you can drive the cart all day without that fuse and nothing is going to happen until you plug charger in it just won,t charge.........unless we are talking about a different fuse here.....................................

the fuse we are talking about is the one located on the back of the carts charger receptical....
if blown it interrupps the circuit that connects the charger to the battery.

therefore the charger can turn on ..but not complete the connection to the batts

some of the chargers have a glass bubble in the face plate with a wire shaped like the letter "Y" . this is a fusable link built in that does the same thing as the fuse we are talking about behind the carts receptical

If it were me, I would replace it with a CC OEM fuseable link designed for the charger I am using . . . this way I know it will fail when it is supposed to for the load it is designed to protect . . . but that is my 2 cents . . .

Here ..Here.. the honorable senator from west Michigan Has the floor.....

and quite frankly i agree.....

fuses have a purpose..... i refuse to work on a cart for anyone where the owner has connect lights,radio or anything without a fuse. I make them let me (or themselves ) install fuses first.

my favorite is the lame brain who runs "LIVE UNFUSED "from the battery using speaker type wire under the cart and thru chassie holes up to the dash board..where they fuse it there..too late at that point

Here is a photo of the fuse that I had overtightened minus the clear plastic bubble. You can see that it uses a piece of solder and spans it between two bolts as a fuse. If you overtighten one of the nuts the entires bolt will spin and break the solder.

Lesson learned.

they are both made from solder...the one on the receptical and the one on the front of the charger ......that was my point......now i don,t know if theres anything different about what they use but i have used solder to repair those for years without ever having an issue and they are still doing their job.........if you buy that fuse its not cheap for a fuse thats nothing more than an inch of solder.........but one thing i do agree with for a new cart owner whos unsure......use proper part even if that means buying it.......................................
