Ezgo txt 36v powerwise charger wont stop charging
My 2002 EZGO TXT was supposed to be a great deal... So far all it makes me want to do is stab myself in the eye with a rusty set of plyers.
The problem with the PowerWise didn't show itself right away. After 3 days of daily use and charging over night with no problems, albeit less run time than I expected (2hrs), I came out to the garage one morning to find the charger was still on. It may have charged for 36hrs or so. The batteries were boiling, 2 of the battery cell caps had popped off and there was battery acid on the top of most if not all the batteries. I had just bought the cart 2 weeks ago and had it looked over by a pro. He said all is kosher.... The batteries look almost brand new. The EZGO seems like its in decent shape
(Except for the fact it wont really move across grass well or uphill at all....PLEASE, if someone knows what thats all about, let me know!!)
The charger however seems to be messing up the batteries.
....So... heres my first plan of action. I think Im going giv'er a little love with a new charger-timer control-input board as well as a cuople charger diodes and a 50 amp fuse... Hopefully that does it, but what do the experts think? Im new to the cart ownership world and so far Im getting owned. -Thanks in advance!!!
