charger should be left plugged in until it shuts its self off
to get proper readings batteries need to be fully charged and then rest for 12hours
again new batteries need several full charges to reach full power
see attached battery guide

. . . you are saying that cart only runs when charger is attached to cart, but not plugged into wall receptacle?

Charger wasn't working as it should, just before we stored it in father-in-law's barn.so he took to a shop to have them check it. timer by-pass something. he hated timer because barn away from house. he worked on it but no luck. i ordered kit off EBAY.in kit was a rectifier - relay - circuit breaker. Charger works fine now. cart doesn't do anything.plug charger to cart and charges battery pack . with charger plugged to cart . everything works on cart . charger can be plugged into outlet - or unplugged from outlet.as long as charger plug to cart. only way cart works. where did we screw up ? SORRY for long story. hard to explain. i'm lost . start throwing new parts - till i find it?
