Default 2012 Trojan Batteries

Help. My cart wouldn't run after being on the charger for over a month. I checked the batteries and someone had taken both caps off one of the 2012 Trojan T1275 Batteries. It was low on water and probably dry. I filled it back up with distilled water and filled the others which were all low or near dry. I put it back on the charger but it won't fully charge and it has some power but just won't move. The charger is shutting itself off after a while so I unplug it and plug it back up. It still hasn't come up to a full charge. What can I try besides replacing the batteries?

Have you check them with a digital volt meter ?? and done a hydrometer test on each cell ??

But it looks like your batteries are stuffed , not good to let them get dry . I think a new set is in order.

I agree. It sounds like you have it least one bad cell in a battery and it is not taking a charge. Then when you try to drive the cart, that cell(or cells) is dropping out under load. Sounds like its time for new batteries

EDIT: Would you be able to provide us with the serial number for the cart?

Should I get them checked or do you think I need to replace all?

You never want to buy 1 new battery and put it in an old pack. The rest of the pack will bring the new battery down to the condition of the other batteries within months. You can either buy a whole new pack or try different cart shops near you to see if they have a used battery at about the same age as the others
