You need to check the batteries, one of them is possibly shorted and causing the high amp draw. Put your meter on positive and neg post on each battery and see what it reads individually with charger off. What do you see at each battery?
Do this first; Try unhooking charger leads to battery and turn charger on with leads isolated and look at ammeter, is it zero?
I will check the amps for each battery....if they are good they should read 6amps, correct. If one is shorting out and causing an amp draw, what should it read?
Also, unsure what is the charger leads to the battery, is this the pos/neg cables connecting the batteries?
Yes, the leads that go from the charger output to the batteries, unhook and turn on the charger, what does the amp gauge do?
The batteries should read 6 VOLTS each. Read them at each battery, + to - with volt meter on DC volts
I will try this at lunch and let you know...I will reply around 1-1:15 eastern time. Thanks.
Good, I am in and out...
I will watch for you.
Read my instructions and do it exactly as I have said please.
6 volts at each battery, then un hook the charger leads at the batteries for test of charger
turn on with it unhooked at the battery posts for a look at the charger. If it's bad it could have a high amp draw 'internally' and this would show up with this test
I checked the 6 batteries, all show 6.22-6.33 volts.
I disconnected the wire were the charge plugs into the cart and goes to the battery, nothing the charger did not turn on.
That all sounds normal.
Now plug the charger in with it disconnected from the batteries. Have it plugged in and on. Check the voltage at the output leads that go to the batteries (disconnected). Should see 38.5 volts DC
Look for a fuse on the charger...
