Default 87 ez go new batteries don't last but a few minutes

87 ez go I bought for my Mama and I don't know anything about them. I put 3 new 12 volt deep cycle batteries in it, charged all 3 batteries on 20 amps car charger all night. It will run for a few minutes and dies but the batteries will still have 11.5 to 12.6 volts in them. I put a load checker on each and I've had 1 go down to 4 volts replaced it with a car battery. Then another new battery goes down to 5 volts replace it still runs a few minutes on flat ground. I do need a accelerator board with contacts and a wiper control arm if anybody has 1 .
Thanks for any help

Take those marine batteries back for a full refund, Quick as you can! Then buy "golf cart deep cycle batteries". Those interior marine batteries are put into the worst possible configuration, 36v & resistor speed control.

Ok I'll see if walmart will take them back. I know I have charged them several times and checked and it's like they won't hold a charge. Mama is almost 83 years old and she wont be riding much. What cheap batteries could I get by with ? Thank you for the info.

Any six volt golf cart battery brand will be much better than what you were trying to do.

Sorry but batteries are not cheap.

Most gas carts can be slowed down with a linkage adjustment.
May want to post make model of gas cart in proper forum to get advice.
May be less expensive option to new batteries for this cart?😊
