Default battery help

I have a 97 48v club car ds with trojan t875 batteries in it. Cart was dead for some reason after i got done putting my body and wheels on, trying to get it ready for Christmas. Long story short i let the cart charge overnight, went to the cart the next morning and the voltage gauge was blinking like the cart was still dead. So i rode it maybe a half mile and took it back to the house. got my multimeter out and checked the batteries. here's what i got 8.06,8.27,8.18,8.30,8.39,8.01. Across the pack i got 32.90. what could possibly be wrong? I'm not sure how old the batteries are there's no stickers on them. i did find F14 under the cell cap, not sure what that is. Thanks

Your readings do not make sense. Pack should be sum of the 6 readings. Two of your individual readings are very low. Sounds like you need some batteries.

Check the battery in your meter. Mine gave strange reading a few weeks ago. The nine volt battery was at about seven volts. Once I changed it my battery voltage was correct.

Check your readings again. Your "Pack" reading looks like it's only 4 or your 6 batteries.

Did you disconnect / replace any battery wires? What's the voltage at the charge receptacle? Post a picture of the entire battery bay

I didn't disconnect any wires. I have to check the voltage at the charge receptacle. I will get pics in a few.

Ok here's what i have now. Went out re measured everything and found H5 date code. Also i was measuring and had my battery meter gauge hooked up to the the wrong two post. Here's my readings 8.28,8.08,8.35,8.40,8.37,8.04, and 49.43 across the pack. I took the cables of and cleaned them up a bit, some were corroded. Now for the next part after i put the cables back on i pulled the cart up and it just stopped all of a sudden. waited for a few seconds trying to get it to go again and it finally started back moving. after that i put it back in the shed. Could those 3 low batteries be the reason why the cart shutters on take off? Thanks
