You have 6, 8 volt batteries. Battery pack reads 51 volts? What is the reading at the carts charger receptical?

Just ran the cart 2 miles wide open, resting voltage after the run 50.2 vdc. All during the ride the yellow battery light turned on and off. Figuring I ran the batteries down a tad. I attempted to charge, after 2 minutes the charger shut down.

After I posted my request I pulled the charger and took it over to the club, they checked it out as being very good...they are the guys who said OBC's bad, do an on line check...
I did a on line step/step of the OBC ... It's will charge the unit direct at the 48VDC battery terminals, and will hunt for a OBC come Monday or buy a OBC by-pass kit..
Thank ...and cancel the order-BillThanks,
