Quick check. Did I bypass the relay properly? My charger did not have orange and brown wires so I tried to follow the schematic.

Thanks. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1341428985.810996.jpg

I think the car dealer nearby still has another one of my same models. I can hopefully try there tomorrow.

Thats what i would do befor you electricute yourself or blow something up, just not worth it.

Not sure force charging is going to help you diagnose if the charger is working properly, so until you rule that out I would not mess with the obc

It appears that the charger was the problem. I took it to the car dealer and tried it on a known to be working cart. Upon connection, it looked like the breaker on the charger kept popping. I brought home one of their chargers on a loaner basis and the cart is charging now.

After 7 hours, the batteries are reading 13.7 and the pack reading is 55. Should I leave it charging overnight?

Based on the description above, does the charger sound like it can be repaired or do I need to buy a new one?

Thanks.

More than likely it's the relay in side the charger. It's a $20 fix.

You can leave it charging, it will kick off automatically when it detects a full charge.
Glad you figured it out.

Thanks. I bought a few parts just in case and the relay is one of them.

Thank you. I often leave my cart for extended periods of time so it might be best to leave it plugged in.

Hey T, you can leave it plugged in but I am pretty sure once it kicks off it will not kick on again until it is unplugged and plugged back in. It is not like a battery tender, so if you have not used the cart for an extended period you might want to unplug and plug it back jn to top off the batteries prior to use.

I always unplug mine after it has charged and shut off.

At least that has been my experience.

once it shuts off it won,t come back on until voltage drops to a certain point.......at that point charger should come back on and charge..................................

Shows ya what I know, thanks Shadowman

Since I golf 1-4 times a week, I doubt my charge will ever drop that low
