Do you have a voltmeter to test with? What is the voltage where the charger attaches to the battery pack? 72 volt system? The charger has to see close to full voltage for it to begin the charge. It is faulting out, which tells me the voltage is too low to the charger, or the voltage is not there, meaning there is a break in the primary battery system.
