Default Late 90's Club car..48 volt

My friend has a late 90's club car 48volt powerdrive. She is having trouble with it charging so i brought it home awhile back. Batteries were completely dead so I charged them with a regular charger because her charger wouldnt kick on. I got it to kick on after that but her batteries were weak. She recently had a guy rebuild her batteries and now her batteries read around 8.1 volt to 8.7 volts each and 47.6 or so with all of them together. Problem is, it will run fine for about 10 minutes and then it will start surging and barely move at all. I pull out the voltmeter again and they batteries still say around 7.5 volts or higher. I pull it in my garage and put it on a jack. I have the pedal floored and all the batteries are reading about 38 volts or so. Now I can get the charger to come on at all and I know there is some juice in the batteries..

Does anyone know what else I can try?

The battery voltage when charged sounds low, betting that the batteries are bed. Try pressing the reset on the charger, then load test the batteries when fully charge. Batteries shou,d be around 8.6 when fully charged and within .1 volts of each other.

sounds like those batteries are shot with those readings....keep in mind a 8 volt battery that reads 8 volts is dead.........they may charge up but they won,t hold under load so i would replace the batteries and hope you didn,t wipe out the OBC.....................................
