2011 is fairly new, if they were properly maintained. Replace the one bad one with a used Trojan - 2011 and same amp-hour battery.

37.0v is only about 65% SOC.

37.8v is 90% SOC.

If your pack was 37.0v and you still have that bad battery in it that is a very good reason why the cart died in 10 mins.

Never discharge batteries below 50% SOC.

will a bad battery prevent the charger from coming on?...

after cleaning connections, etc..the charger is only flashing red once instead of twice.

How do you determine if you have a bad battery, cell etc?

PowerWise QE is the worst charger you could have in my opinion. You need to test a known good charger on your cart AND do something with the US Battery.

If you have five good batteries and one bad one, I'd make replacing the bad one a priority. Try and find one about the same age, hopefully same make, definitely same amp-hours.

I see you're in Athens, so even if you can't find one there, there are tons within an hour from you.
