Default 05 Precedent 48 Volt Battery Meter Low Readings

Me and a buddy just installed a battery meter and 12 volt outlet on my 05 Club Car Precedent 48 volt. He did most of the work since he has some eletrical training. The problem is it shows low batteries and when we put a voltage meter on them it shows a full charge. And now even the charger seems to run longer than usual. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What is the voltage of your battery pack when you use a voltage meter?

The Precedent has provision for a meter behind the dash

That will make a simple job once I order your meter for my cart.. I assume it will turn off with the key if I wire it that way?

We connected it from behind the dash and routed it under. Then connected it to one battery positive and negative and spliced into ignition. I have the same wiring diagram, but I didn't understand where it would go. There is a spot where I think it could plug in behind the dash but I didn't want to blow anything electrical up.

Did you connect it to the pos and neg of the whole pack? Also, why or what did you splice into ignition? The harness behind the dash has provisions for a meter already. No need to wire back to the battery pack.

I say a spot a I thought should be wired into the harness behind the dash. The instructions had one wire to the ignition, positive and negative. We just ran it back to a battery and spliced into the ignition wire.

Scotty can correct me if I'm wrong but splicing into the ignition would give you the pos feed and not sure why you also wired it back to the pos post of the battery pack?
