Default Battery info

I have searched this site and cannot find a sticky or thread on how to properly test the batteries in my 36 volt 07' EZGO PDS. I have searched the internet also and found three different ways, which all three ways the tests are showing all batts are good. Still not sure, Thought I would ask the experts!

check Scottyb's section on batteries on his site. this one gives you a lot of info on what you should see with a digital meter and specific gravity.

Are you sure that your charger is working? Those batteries are really dead.
