Zone is just a street legal cart. I assume 48 volts? You say charger comes on and charges? Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery pack and each battery? Will cart roll, showing brakes are not locked?

48 volt. Rolls Curtis controller. Led indicates almost full charge. Have to go get voltmeter to test.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.
OK, check the battery voltage, check voltage at the solenoid, and check voltage at the controller and the drive motor. All should be same as battery pack . 48 volt pack fully charged will be around 54 volts!

While I go get a voltmeter...... Just FYI, tHe controller led status indicator says that the main connector is bad. Went to local golf cart store and got a similar one as sold on zone website , connected it, and still shows same error code and same symptoms.

Main connector? It is saying that voltage is not present and thinks bad connection, may be no voltage getting to it.
