Do you have a voltmeter to test each battery and the battery pack voltage? Each battery should be above 6 volts, and battery pack, should be close to 39 volts!

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can do that.
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

OK> Check that, and then we can continue. Usually lack of performance is a bad battery or connection.

Don't call yet I have to find Dad's voltmeter

Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Hi Curtis,
Hope your Thanksgiving was great!
I checked each battery with the voltmeter. All 6 eere above 6v, total was 38.96v
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Not yet since there is an extra charge
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I wish I knew that before I paid. I tend to do better with the telephone.

Golf cart just stopped running when Dad had it out Tuesday. I got a a tow to get it home. I found that it would run fine for a few minutes, then stop; run a few minutes then stop.
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Sounds like a battery that is failing under load. Check each battery when it acts up, looking for one that is lower or higher than the rest.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok, will do.
Am I correct in thinking that I have 1 week to speak with you and resolve the problem?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Without incurring extra charges
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Question can stay open indefinitely, no time limits, all same one time charge. Phone call is extra, but we don't need it.
