Default Orange County Resource for battery help

Hi all-

I am a rookie Youtube educated cart tech and my batteries wonít charge. I think I have them all plugged in right and I had to install a new charger receptacle, but it will not charge. It has a little juice in it and runs fine, but I have replaced the charger and canít figure out whatís up.

Hi JonnieB

It is a 2001 Ezgo TXT 36v
The batteries are Trojan (6)
The charger is a PowerWise III

I changed the charger receptacle. I think I have it right where the red goes to the positive of the very first battery, and the black goes to the negative to the last battery. But like I said, this is a new venture for me and I am a hack Youtube tech at this point.

If the charger is not charging, don't run it any more until you get it figured out.

Could it be the batteries are so low that the charger will not kick on?

I don't think the cart would be "running fine" if they are that low. He needs to check the batteries and report back what is going on with them.

The batteries were full when I bought them and they are running down after driving it, but they are not charging up after using it

The 10Ga charging wires from charge receptacle to battery pack are typically White (positive) and Black (negative), The smaller gauge red or white wire is from the reed switch and goes to the controller.

Ouch!

Lead-acid Deep-cycle Cart batteries need to be charged before first use and after each use, and should never be discharged more than 50%.

Got to this website: https://www.cartsunlimited.net/battery-break-in-.html

After reading how to break in new batteries, click on FAQs on the menu at the left side of homepage and read everything with the word battery in its title.


------------------
If the battery pack voltage is less than about 30V, your charger will not turn on. If so, you can use a 12V charger and charge the 6V batteries in pairs to get them up high enough to turn on the 36V charger.
