Does the charger work on another cart? Are your batteries wired correctly?

Could very well be OBC...
It would be nice to try your charger on a another cart to confirm OBC problem...

Have you tried to bypass the OBC to see if the charger works, until you know it works there is where the problem lies. You must confirm it works. Is there power to the outlet where it is plugged in? Is the circuit breaker in the charger tripped? saying it worked and it working now is 2 different things.

The charger only works when I jump out the gray wire on the back of the carts receptacle to ground, battery voltage is 50+ volts ,while charging

Okay buy a new OBC or a charger that doesn't require on. Check with sponsors of site they sell them.
