16 kmh is only 9.9 mph... That, quite frankly, is terrible, and well below where you should be.

Ok we will swap, that battery out for another one, we have several good used batteries that are from this same fleet. We will also go through and make sure each cell is as close to the same as possible if we have ones that are quite different we will swap those batteries out as well. We will get the battery pack as good as possible first. Would 4 ga wires help any.

Because we are only getting 16kph should we also be looking at something else?

Your telling me, I got passed by a tumble weed and the wind isn't even blowing. Even at the low end of things I should be at least getting 19 KPH. We will try and get a happy battery pack in there and go from there, but I am thinking it could also be something else, just not sure what yet?

It's a 2003 no pie shaped box that I can see from the seat area?

But we did a full charge on the batteries and then went over each of them again with the hyrdometer, ended up having 5 out of the 6 that were either quite a bit different reading from cell to cell, or weak or bad. So we then went through the other 12 batteries we had and ended up getting a complete set of 6 with not only cell to cell being 1275 but all the batteries are 1275 range. Then we did a charge, pulled it off the charger battery bank read 54.4 volts, took it for the same drive and under load on flat we are getting 50.2 volts and in the cabbage we are getting 49.9 volts, and climbing small hills we are getting a drop down to 48.8 volts. Top speed on the flats is 19 KPH which seems to be in spec for the cart on the manual which states 19-24 KPH. So it seems to be better, not sure if we will get much more out of her. Doing a full charge now, I don't believe it was fully charged.

you must always let the charger finish its job.....never unplug it early thats a real good way to not get 100% out of batteries ..............keep your fingers crossed if for some reason the batteries you put in are not broken in yet s they do break in the cart will get better..........already those #,s are better...............one thing i do not beleive in and thats cutting corners on batteries and cables...........thats like going into the junk drawer at home and just grabbing a battery for your pace maker...............lolol..............i know i wouldn,t..................................good luck keep us posted................................

Hey thanks for all your input, you've been a great help today. I did let the charger complete it's charge cycle, then ran it for about a kilometer and then came back in and put it back on charge, so we will see what she does. I agree with you on not cutting corners on batteries.

Typically all of our carts go out the door with brand new Trojan T-875 and the Trojan self watering systems, with brand new 4g cables. This is pretty much our standard and exactly why we are not use to dealing with these used battery issues. Unfortunately sometimes (like in this case) the customer (strata management company) who is purchasing this cart and a 2007 Precedent from us is on a budget and we are trying to meet that number for them. However with that being said we refuse to sell anything that is not up to par for our customers. So this is exactly why we keep at it until we can solve the problem. This cart along with the 2007 Precedent have both been torn down to the frame and completely gone through, tie rod ends replaced, bushings, brakes, tires and anything else along the way to ensure it is going to be a safe reliable cart for them. I always explain that if they are not purchasing new batteries then they will be expecting to replace them in a not to distant future. All of our refurbished carts go out the door with 3 month warranty and when new batteries are purchased it becomes a 12 month warranty.

Anyways thanks again for your input, valuable information!

Well after some more tinkering, we have the cart working very well, the voltage is not dropping below 49.9 even on hills or in the cabbage, and runs 50.9 volts on the flat pavement. So we are pretty happy with that. Thought we would include some before and afters of the cart. It's going to a resort as a maintenance vehicle.

Thanks again for everyone's input!
