What is voltage to the voltage regulator, it is what sends the voltage required to the battery. Green wire should be output, and has to be above battery voltage, around 14 volts DC. See the attached diagram.

The cart is at my beach house. If the regulator isn't producing 14 volts DC, what next?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.
You already replaced the generator, so either the regulator is bad, or the wire from battery terminal of the regulator to the battery positive is off or broken.
