Club Car Questions . .
Hi all. I'm in need some expert information.
1st post, got plenty of questions.
I bought a car from a friend who was transfering out of area. He had bought it 2nd hand. No books, jsut cart & charger. It ran great, charged well, no problems. Months go by, batteies don't charge as well. I get busy, too busy and neglect car (or just batteries). The car displaced my wifes s-burban in garage. Ha.
Yes several months went by, I'm out of town. ok . . now charger will not charge. nothing.
6 - 8 volt batteries Trogan T-875
Charger PD2 Model 22110
AC In 120v 9A
Output 48v 13A
I checked electrolite level, several were low. topped off. NOTHING w/ charger.
Checked individual battery voltage, no load. each around 5-6 volts.
Does the Charger (PD2) have a minimum voltage before it kick on?
Does anyone know of a 8 volt battery charger manfact to individually charge/recondition 8v batteries? I found two options. A Deltran Battery Tender Plus (1.25A) which would be unbleably SLOOOOW (100+ hrs each). and I found a Schumacher 16 Volt (10A) which I could run with two batteries in series.
Also . .
) What year is Club Car?
AQ0242-216104 Is it a 2002 ??
)Where can I get a copy of operations manual?
) What model ? Can you tell by Serial #? Looks ident to DS Electric Car-IQ on .clubcar.com but specs don't match.
Thanks for any info.

Charger does have a minimum voltage relay.. No voltage, no charge. You can charge each battery with a 12v charger for about 1 hour a piece, and that should bring them back up.
If batteries are original, you most likely need new batteries.. If you topped them off with electrolyte, not just water, then you DEFINITELY need new batteries..
Your charger is made to service the whole pack and maintain them.. Buying a separate 8 volt charger, would be redundant.
You have a 2002 Club Car I.Q. vehicle. Good car.
