Power Drive Charger ???
 
Hi

It appears either that l don 't know what l'm doing or my charger is not working properly.

I have my CC 2010 for 2 wks and only took it out 3 times due to prior commitments.
When my cart was delivered it was fully charged and l was only able to take it out for a mile test drive and it was perfect.

Two days later l took it out for a 3 mile run and when l put it in my garage
I hooked up the charge. The only thing that l questioned was why the charger was almost to hot to handle. I was advised that it was normal by both this forum and my dealer. My dealer said if l have any concerns he will swap it out
for another one.
By the way l have 6 8v Trojan 875's.

Today l just took it out for a 2 mile run and when l got back l hooked up the
charger and nothing happened, it didn't turn on.

The key is turned to the off position and after waiting 5 minutes l pushed a black button on the lower front position of the face plate and nothing happened.

What is my next option.

Thanks

Alan

Hi

Forget it, my problem was that l used an extension cord and it was not connected properly.

Thanks

PowerDrive3 charger? If so, yes. It gets so hot you can't touch it. Make sure it's well ventilated.
