If the return is connected to the frame you should feel more tingling as you move up the battery string.


Now, if you suspected this, why on earth would you not just use your meter instead of your body to FEEL the juice flowing?

I would not like to test your batteries Sir!!!

Since you asked a question I'd like to defend myself.

Do all the posters here own VOM's? It was not a battery test I was proposing, but rather a test to show that in Club Cars the batteries should be isolated from the frame. The point is I wouldn't suspect that situation.


In the 50's our local mechanic would test the high voltage coil on cars....without a VOM. We used to call him Sparky right up until he retired after losing a finger checking to see if his saw blade was sharp.
