Thank for all your help one more question...Batteries
Hey guys thanks for everything one more question. If I bypass the OBC will the charger charge the pack even though the batteries are low low. The pack is dead, I tried to charge this past month with a 6amp secondary charger I use for four wheelers when needed. I couldn't use the cart charger due to the precharge resistor being out and the cheap charger obviously couldn't handle charging the batteries. I think the secondary charger has a faulty shutoff or something, it says charged but the voltage on the batteries is low like 4 or 5 volts. The batteries were only a year old and weren't fully charged when my son topped them off with water, then the controller went out. So bottom line is they've been dead for over a month and and the secondary charger obviously didn't do it's job.
So now I need to get the batteries up to snuff and I think they're to low for the cart charger to kick on, so if I bypass the obc will the charger kick on even though there super low or do I need to get another secondary charger and attempt to get charged to get the cart charger going?? Thanks again you guys are great.

The OBC bypass should jumpstart the charging. Let it run like this for 3-45 minutes or until the pack reads about 48V under charge. Disconnect the charger, remove the bypass, and reconnect the charger, if the pack voltage is high enough (+ or - 44v at rest) the charger should recognize the pack and continue until it shuts off on it's own.
