sounds like something is drawing power when the cart is not in use, or the battery is bad,, do you have a radio, or lights, do you leave it in reverse and the back up alarm is drawing power, is the generator charging?

I heard that a car battery will not last as long in a Golf cart. should use like a lawn tractor battery type, or a marine type. My 2 pennies
