Default AMF Harley Davidson Electric Cart Won't Charge

Hi all, this is my first post here but I've been reading a lot of posts from searches trying to fix my issue. I have an AMF Harley Davidson golf cart that I can't get to charge. I thought it was my Lester O Matic charger because it was reading no amperes when I plugged it in, but a new charger doesn't kick on when I plug it in. The batteries are about 10 months old, so I don't believe that's the issue. All of them read about 5.8 volts when I test them. The cart does turn on and does run, for about a minute then the batteries can't move it any more. Park it and then try again and they work for about a minute again.

I plug the volt meter in the back of the charger receptacle and get continuity, so I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would think if things weren't connected right, it wouldn't run at all as opposed to running for 30 seconds to a minute then stopping.

Thanks for anything anyone can provide.

On the speed control board, they use the last post there to make contact with the charge circuit. Im pretty sure AMP kept that design from Harley, its been awhile since I have worked on one.

Thank you for the info. So you think it may be something with that connection.

Thank you. I'm probably in over my head. I took a look last night and I'm not sure what the speed control board is. I found what I think it is, and it has a little push switch on it but as far as connections go, I don't know what to do there. Just clean the connections? If so, with what?

I also realized that the two sets of 3 batteries go to different solenoids in back. That seems odd to me as well but I can't see how it would work any other way.

Thanks again for trying to help me out, I appreciate it.
