How did you check the batteries? Individually or the entire pack?
You may want to see if the receptacle wires going to the pack are carrying charger output current.

i think the best way is to load test each individual battery to confirm the voltage.

Default Re: Charger

The charger reads voltage. It is not reading enough voltage to kick down.
This can be a wire issue in the cart charging circut or a battery issue. Even one bad battery can cause this, yes, a battery can go bad in 2 years.
Do you have any test equipment?
Can you post the voltage readings from each of your batteries?
Can you test and post the specific gravity (use a simple hydrometer)of the battery with the lowest reading?
