double check your wiring, make sure the batts are run positive to negitive and so on.........sounds like you might have either crossed a wire or miswired one..............when the old batts were in the cart lets say the rear battery on the pass. side thats your #1 battery and the way it sits in the cart the positive terminal would be the closest terminl to the body of the cart and neg. terminal would be closer to the 2 center batteries..........if you didn,t drop the new batteries in the same exact way the old ones came out its real possible to miswire them and i,ll bet thats what you did..........they are wired in series and there should be a diagram here that will show you.....like i said they are cabled positive from 1 battery to negitive on the next battery and so on........................................

Dont want to interrupt anyone but since I have this little drawing, it might help.
Note the battery labeled #1 ,is the same #1 "shadowman" Refers to.
Pay special attention to the "+" and "-" as you follow the wiring.

Hi Guys and Thank you for the reply

I was able to determin that the cart was wired wrong but I now have corrected that problem Now I have a new one The orginal 48 Volt CC Charger is poping the reset button within 5-to-8 sec after it is connected
I have a new 48 volt charger I am using but after approx 1-Hour I am noticing a heavy smell comming from the batterys and a Bubbling sound
the batterys are new I ran them for 10 to 11 hours before I charge them I hope I did not damage them by connecting them the wrong way or Is it possible that somthing else is going on now Thanks In advance ....

your sure you got them right this time? check again......at this point you might want to load test them and check the cells with a hydrometer to see if you ruined one or more............one last thing we see a lot are you sure you got 8 volt batteries and not six volt? count the water fill holes 4 holes = 48 volt and 3 holes = 36 volt...........................................
