Default Last 3 batteries boiling

I just placed 6 NEW Trojan T-105 batteries in and I am positive all the connections are correct. I plugged in the charger and it reads 21 amps (which is exactly what it was reading before and would never change with the old batteries). Within 30 minutes charger is still reading 21 but the last 3 batteries are boiling. That pungent smell can go unnoticed. Checked the first 3 and they were fine. Does any one have an solution?

Never charge old and new batteries together. The new batteries are more responsive to the charger and even one old battery in the pack will cause the charge times to be longer than needed for the new batteries ... the end result is cooking or overcharging the new batteries & they are quickly reduced to the equal the old batteries.

We need more info. Can you monitor the pack with a voltmeter. New batteries require a lot of charge initially depending upon their SOC and how long they have been on the shelf.

What are the signs the battery charger is no good? Now the battery charger will not even turn on when plugged in.

We need to know what year cart you have. Also, what is your pack voltage right now.

Sometimes it's just a bad connection between the charger and the cart..... try lift and hold the plug up for 30 seconds, see if it comes on?

Like Eric said we need voltage reading to know if the charger should be coming on
