Default 2000 ds regen only moves a couple inches

this cart is a 2000 regen. The batteries were replaced 6 ago. It has run fine until yesterday. It just clicked and stopped. I have fully charged the batteries and checked them all with a multi meter and theyre good. When you press the pedal, it moves a few inches, then clicks and stops and the battery light comes on. Does anyone have any ideas of what it might be, or some methods to troubleshoot it? Thanks in advance. Rob

Sorry, I meant to say 6 months ago...After leaving it off the charger for a few hours, I retested the batteries. They all read around 9.1-94 except for one that read 5.6. The battery was also bulged around the terminals. What could have caused this, and could this one bad battery cause the cart to not move?

One bad battery will cause that issue.

One bad battery will cause that issue. Have you check water level in the batteries?

I did check the water level and it was below the top of the plates on 2 cells. I topped them up and tried charging again, but no luck. I guess buying 1 battery is better then 6. Thanks guys for the advice.
