Default Charging?

I purchased a 1984 elec 36v Club Car. All 6 batteries are 3 months old. I installed a State of Charge analog meter. I have the wires on the first positive and last negative. I'm using an old charger. The charger makes a clicking/popping noise. The amp meter goes from 0 to high when this happens. I charged for 12 hours. The batteries were still dead. How can I test the charger to see if it's still working? The cart ran just fine when I bought it and before I installed the meter. I think my kids ran it dead before the first charging. They had to push it home.

You are destroying your 3 month old batteries by running them dead! Get yourself a good charger and get them charged up. Don't run them below 50% unless you want to replace them soon.

Don't you just love how people blow right by the question ? Hook a suitable volt meter to the charger ( unplugged from cart ) and compare the output to what the manufacturer states .You can also unhook batteries and test individually .

After thought ,disconnect the meter and see if it still does it .

Thanks for the reply's. I have a volt meter, I'll check.

For now, I read where I can charge 2 batteries at a time with a 12 v charger. Is this OK? Then 2, then the last 2.
