Default Am I on the right path

I have been having a hard time selling, my 1989 cart with bad batteries- No one wants the cart if they cant test it! i can understand that

So I went for the newer used batteries from a guy in Mid Missouri- we did one battery at a time and the ezgo now runs great- cept the timed charger will shut itself off- I am not sure if its fully zapped or the charger is turning it self off.

we took pictures of the set up before we started- both the Ezgo and the Bad Boy


Well the bad boy wont go and I think I know what is going on- every battery is running about 7.1 volts- one of the batteries is 7.03 volts. when I put the tester on the two posts that the charger is hooked to, I get barely anything. when i test two batteries at a time I get a little over 14.3, all except two over on the passenger's side

so that is the bad ones \? correct?

we are hopping for nice weather some night this week so we can finnally get a chance to make my own wires- we have everything, but I have been working late and so has my son

the readings you gave are high for a 6v battery did you take them as soon as charger shut off ? let them rest for 12 hours to get a good reading ... if any are under 6v that battery is week and needs to be replaced
below is chart to show battery charge percentage

He meant "bad boy", not Bad Boy Buggy.
