Default Cart slowed to a crawl

Hello, Ive had my cart just for a few days and today on a way back from picking up my kids it slowed to almost a crawl and could not make it up the driveway. The ride was 1.2 miles one way. I have not charged since getting Tuesday. The battery meter was reading 2 lines from full charge, 1 line when I left.

Its also 105 here in Arizona, more in garage, just incase this could be a contributing factor.

Should I be worried, did it just over heat? It ran fine yesterday

Heat is hard on batteries but it does not cut performance like cold does. Your bar graph meter may be misleading you. Recharge every night after you use it. Try to avoid charging when the garage is the hotest.

The bar meters are notoriously inaccurate. Check your voltage with a multi-meter if you have one and you may be surprised. If your volts check out, the next place I would look is all the cable connections. Check them all after running the cart a bit and see if any of them are getting hot. At this point you will have eliminated the easy stuff. I guess one more easy one would be electrolyte level in the batteries.
