Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !!
Do you have access to a voltmeter? Need to check the charger connection at the cart. Is this a 36 or 48 volt cart? Club car puts a small micro switch at the charger connection, look for a small wire, this extra switch at the charger connection has to make for the charger to stay on.
The the correct voltage is at the charger connection and this small switch is making when the charger is attached, hen you have to assume it is a charger problem. Best test would check it on another cart.
If the correct
Yes have voltmeter. It's 48 volts. A poor connection with the micro-switch makes good sense.
Yes, it is a small wafer switch, best found by looking at the small wire to it.
Checking on another cart is good advice, but will have to find one somewhere nearby. Still, good point. Will check for the microswitch.
Let me know what you find. Thanks.

Curtis, have checked and did not find a microswitch. I inspected both the internal part of the plug area and the exterior. There are only 3 wires exiting the plug on the rear.....positive wire going directly to + on battery, negative wire that goes to what appears to be a fusible link mounted on top of the rear of the receptacle, then on to negative circuit, then the middle (ground) exits the rear of the receptacle, passes through a fuse, then onto wherever. The fusible link checks OK with Ohmmeter and circuit from negative of plug side through the fusible link is complete.
