1. Test the specific gravity in all battery cells . . only need one bad one . .
2. OBC may be faulty.
3. Do you have access to another cart to try your charger on?
4. Do you have access to another charger to try on your cart?

What is the highest voltage you read while on charge? The charger cut off is between 44-46v. If the pack is not reaching this voltage there may be a battery problem.

37.5V is only 80% charged. I'd check all your individual battery voltages. Like " scottyb " said, you may have a bad battery. Let us know what the individual battery voltages are before you charge the cart.
