Default Replaced electric brake on Rxv but still having a problem

I replaced the electric brake on my Rxv which fixed my brake issue but my cart will only go about 300 yards and stop running. My batteries r a year old. I put a volt meter on them and found that 3 batteries were reading in the 12 volt range and one was about 10.4 volts. Could this be my issue r something else. Any help with trouble shooting is greatly appreciated

Rxv is picky about batteries, and that one at 10.5 is gonna be a problem.

If your brake is locking up I would say yes you got a battery problem. When you lose power brake does lock up and that battery is to low.

Looks like ctech beat me to it.

10.4 static could easily drop to 3 or 4 under load, and that will not be enough for the system to operate correctly. Are the batteries being maintained correctly?

Caney Welcome to BGW..

It's best if you only have one thread about a problem with your cart. Keep all your post and answers in one thread

Yes the batteries have been properly maintained. I put a battery charger on that one battery and got the voltage up to 12.4. If I run the cart one day for a few minutes and don't put it on the charger, the following day it may not engage when I turn it on. After turning the key a few times it engages, runs for a little but quickly loses power r shuts off. This is after getting that one battery back up to 12.4 volts. I can let it sit and it may run 5 minutes without any problem. Could it still be a battery issue r is their something else to trouble shoot. Thanks for help in advance

Put volt meter on that battery & drive cart while someone monitors voltage. If it is dropping below 10.5 under load, it's still bad & not gonna come back to life.
