Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, but now I have a new problem.

Good News! Yesterday I bought a green 2003 Club Car DS IQ with '08 batteries for $1,250 from my local CC dealer.

Bad News. I plugged in the cart at 6:30 pm last night and the charger read 11 amps. This morning at 9:00 am I checked the charger and it read 5 amps. Only 6 amp drop over a 19 and a half hour time span? Something doesn't add up. OBC?

Not enough information to know ?
We need solid tech info like:
make, age, and model of batteries.
water level.
cable condition.
starting voltage.
ending voltage.
For starters

Could just be one bad cell in one battery.

PS
How much commission are we getting on these flippers?

The batteries are the 2008 Trojan T-875 batteries. The cables and terminals look a little dirty. I don't know if this will help but when I checked this morning, you could hear one of the batteries was bubbling and the battery was wet on top. (Pics Attached)

We still need more technical information to give an educated answer.

Your batts are probably on their way out.
Does the cart drive ok?
Maybe try an OBC reset just for kicks and see what happens.
The maximum charge time the OBC should allow is 16 hours.

BTW, the cart came with the Powerdrive charger. Is there a difference between that and the Powerdrive 2 charger? Does that effect the charging?
