you may also want to have the batteries load tested,just to make sure the batteries are sound...if you don't have a load tester,auto zone and most parts stores may load test the batteries for free if you take them to the store

The charger reached a voltage of 59v before I turned it off, isn't that a little high? I thought I accepted your answer yesterday...I'll check on it....daver
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 6 years ago.
what is the voltage of you cart?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that it is a _48v Club Car.....daver
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 6 years ago.

ok

the voltage isn't really high..it is just not regulating the voltage,,the charger isn't shutting off when the batteries are fully charged

thanks
