Default Charging Problem - 48v. Sorry guys.

I know there are innumerable threads with a similar problem, but I haven't hit "the" one yet.

2003 CC. 48v.
I've had the cart a couple months.
No charging problems until the new additions.
New additions -
Grizzly II torque motor;
2 ga. cable set;
HD F/R switch
Alltrax 575 controller.
Still running the stock solenoid, but a beefier one is on the way.

Club Car Power Drive II - Model 22110

2013 Batteries.
All individual batteries are showing 8+ volts.
Pack is showing 48.1. Although the "chart" suggests I'm at 35/40%, the cart behaves like its going to die imminently.
All connections appear to be tightened down nicely.

BTW - the motor is a joy when its all juiced up!

Anyway, when I put it on the charger, it starts and runs for about 30 seconds and then cuts out. Or - it does nothing but click.

I've also tried it with another charger with no joy - cart issue.

Thoughts?

Did you run the #2ga ground cable back through the hole in the OBC?

48.1v is considered a "dead" pack. Don't continue to drive it till the charging is fixed.

48.1 being bad news puzzles me.
I mean - I understand it's healthier to charge the cart when it dips below 50%, but the "state of charge" sticky that I can't find now puts 48.1 between 40 & 50%. What am I missing there? It certainly behaves like a dead pack, but ....

It behaves like a dead pack because it is a dead pack and should be on the charger asap. If it's not charging then that needs to be corrected soon, batteries don't like to be stored discharged.

You keep referring to "I've got 40-50% left". That's not true, sure you can drive further but every minute doing so takes weeks off the battery life. If you were to discharge to 20% often, new batteries wouldn't last one year. You shorten their life cycle that much.

It happened after you installed upgrages, so check all wiring then check again

. . . I would test the OBC by bypassing it in the charger . . . does the battery warning light illuminate or flash when the charge cycle terminates after the stated 30 seconds?
