Does the charger run full 8 hour cycle? Do you have voltmeter to check the battery pack voltage and each battery? Are batteries full of fluid? 6, 6 volt batteries for 36 volts?

THE CHARGER RUNS FOR MORE THEN 8 HOURS. METER ON CART SHOWS FULLY CHARGED. HAVE NOT USED VOLT METER.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

Need voltmeter to check actual voltage, and each battery. Any one battery or one connection, affects the battery pack voltage. You may have one battery that is bad.
