Default Amp readings different on two chargers

Hi I have two different CC power drive 48v chargers one is 2001 and the other is 1997. I installed brand set of new T875's. The 1997 charger reads 13 amps and 49.9v at the heat sink to amp meter. The 2001 reads 6 amps and 43.3 v. Both are the same model 17 amp charger why the different readings.?

Perhaps the OBC is asking for different charger duty cycles based on what it "sees" from the pack? Just a guess.

This is the same Clubcar with the battery gage at half, using two different chargers with two different results. Is it a transformer issue? Is it better to put higher amp to charge or lower to charge?

The one reading 6 amps at 43.3 volts will never fully charge your pack. Theres more than likely an issue with the charger itself.

Maybe one diode is broken on the 43.3 volt vehicle.. (It happens often.) Cheap fix.

Hi I checked the diode and it is good with the diode setting on my meter. Does the reading mean any thing? One set is reading .466 and the other .443.?

Hi I found that one of the diodes was loose at the heat sink I tried to solder it back no good, I just smoothed the contact point and put tension on it put it back together. I ran the Club car around a lot and plugged it into the charger I was working on and now the amp meter reads 13 amp and it is putting out 50.2 v to the batteries. Happy now Mike out
