Charger works ok? Do you have a voltmeter to test voltage at each battery? Check each battery for full voltage, with 6 volt battery, each will be 6.3 volts or more, if fully charged. Most problems with carts, are battery or cable problems. Check each cable and connection. Next would be to jump the two cables on the solenoid, to see if the cart will run with solenoid bypassed. Solenoid may not be closing.
