Was charger left attached to cart for long period? If you plug charger in now, does it come on and start charge? Strong sulpher smell is sign of a shorted battery and if any cell is shorted, it will affect the whole pack. After cart quit, check each battery again, look for one that is 2 volts more or less than the others!
