Default Powerdrive 2 tripping breaker

Here's what I have:
2002 CC DS.
Powerdrive 2 charger.

I plug the charger in, relay clicks, starts to hum, meter goes backwards (from 0 to negative). Breaker pops.

I put another charger on the cart and the cart charges. I metered the power and charge wires for continuity and none of the wires are broken.

I've done a search but can't find any details on what it could be. I have no idea on the history of the cart/charger as I just bought them. They came off 10 years of use on a public course and the charger looks like it

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Thanks TahoeDawg, same problem. I didn't have a clue what could be wrong. I got the enclosure off the charger and it just sat there staring back at me, laughing at my Power Drive 2 charger repair ignorance!
ITS NOT LAUGHING ANY MORE!

Came here and found the solution, great forum.

Sometimes I wonder if some guys are not just getting a little too personal with their chargers. Seems he was having a relation. Fixed it though.

My charger did the same thing. Thanks to this forum I was able to fix my charger. Just make sure you get the wires back on the rectifier right. If they are wrong the breaker will pop.

That's true....... + to white, Both AC or ~ terminals to black (either way works) and - to brown or grey.
