Default 48v Star Loses Power FAST

I have a 2008 Star EV 48 volt that I purchased about 6 months ago. Would run a steady 20-25 mph and hold a charge for several hours. It now loses power so fast that it canít even get up to 20 mph after a full over night charge. The battery meter also drops to about half charge after traveling only a couple miles.

The only problem Iíve found so far is one cell in one of the batteries showing a specific gravity lower than the meter can even read, even after extracting the electrolyte, adding new electrolyte, and recharging the battery.

Voltage is good for each battery and each cell.

Iím pretty new to carts so not sure how else to troubleshoot. Any help is greatly appreciated!
