Customer Question

We have a 1997 club car. The batteries are all charged when you take off it is ok but then it runs out of power real quick
JA: Have you tested the battery? Is the battery fluid low?
Customer: The batteries have all been checked the posts are clean and everything tight
JA: What is the model of your '97 electric?
Customer: DS Electric
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes just checked all the batteries and cables
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: The batteries are all new bought in the last year and half. When you step on the petal all the way down it starts jumping like it is out of power and when you let up it will barely go
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Electric Vehicle Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
