This evening I will be back at it again. I take the same route to see if it extends my run time. The only thing is the last time I did it late so I had the lights on. Thank you guys very much I will keep you informed, hopefully the snake oil (Epson Salts for $14 I bought ) works.

One other question. Should I add battery acid to the batteries would that help? All I did is make the snake oil mixture with distilled water and top it off.

So far I continue to go the same distance. 3 miles and then the loss of power is dramatic. I travel another mile with it being sluggish to pick up speed.
So dump out the water and make another salt solution? I'll give it a try I need to get some salt first.

This will do WAY more harm than good! They are your batteries so do what you like to them but dumping anything in them and displacing the sulphuric acid isn't going to do anything but damage.

Alright boys here is we're I'm at. Last night I took the cart for another run around. This is what happened So we ran it around and the same about three miles or so getting slower and then I had to pull over to let someone get around and that was it. It could not pick up speed I had to push it while my daughter drove it and gave it gas to let the motor spin. I pushed about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile. Am I screwed? Should I just go buy batteries? What can I check to make sure the charger is charging correctly. By the way my cart was built in 12/99. I had a brain fart! I traded for it in 2005.

What does the OBC look like? And can I test for a hot spot using a temp gun? Something else I noticed, when the cart is disconnected from the charger for awhile I can hear the water bubbling still. Also when I disconnect the batteries I can a bad spark like there is a lot of load.
