Default 98 ezgo charge meter not showing actual charge

hey, i just took my cart in for a check up on the meter because it showed it wasnt fully charged. the meter isnt showing a full charge, it is fluxuating between empty and 1 bar left even though i charege it every nite for atleast 8 hours. the charger itself is in perfect condition so it isnt the charger that isnt working. when i took it in they replaced the charge meter and it still isnt working. since they couldnt fix it i thought i would give it a try on my own seeing as they couldnt do it. what i really need is either someone who has some idea on how to do this, or a diagram of the electrical system.

you can either post here or email me at: zombor0@yahoo.com




thanks

Welcome to BGW!

More than likely the gauge is bad...this one is the 4th gauge in a week I have seen on the forum that has been bad. 2 were bought brand new and didn't work.

Something to try first:

Charge it up all the way.

Put tow/run switch in TOW.

Disconnect one battery cable in the middle of the set.

Have a cold beverage of your liking.

Re-connect battery cable.

Read your newly reset meter.

If it's still off, replace the meter.

Good luck.

You forgot to tell him to put the run/tow back into "Run". LOL!

Put it back in run AFTER reconnecting the battery cable.
