Measure your battery voltage. Then measure your battery while cart engine is running. If you get 2 or 3 volts higher while engine running than when it's not, your charging system is ok. Lets say your voltmeter measures about the same voltage either way. Remove the small yellow wire on the starter/ generator and insulate. Place a jumper between the post that the yellow wire was on and the negative post of the battery. Now measure the battery while the engine is running. If you now measure higher voltage then your voltage regulator is bad, if you don't measure higher voltage then your starter/gen is bad.

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

SOURCE: Electric Golf cart only shutters and inches forward

so many possibilities...

does it roll fairly freely? (checking to see if the brakes or rearend seized up)

Are there any "bad" sounds like things grinding? (Connection between Motor and rearend, axle splines...)

If all that is solid, it is likely in the controller.... (it takes a solid charge right... No bad batteries in there or loose connection? might want to check all the battery connections to make sure none are burnt...)

1997.. does it have the electonic speed control by that year? the other possibilty is that the accelerator is not working corectly. they used a resistor system on old ones that has contactors that would get worn out.... Newer ones control a potentiometer(sp) that controlled the speed.

Only a few real components to check, but if you are not mechanically and electically inclined, could be tough to isolate.

peace,

I have a 2010 yamaha golf cart,has brand new batteries,and the batteries drain by nine holes,is it the voltage regulator? or something else


Make sure the batteries are fully charged. if your cart has it's own charger it may not fully charge. I would purchase a portable one and make sure they fully charge then you would know whether the cart charger is working.

With new batteries in a EZGO golf cart, when you plug in the charger when the batteries are showing half charge, the charger runs for about 15 seconds, shuts off for 2 seconds, and then back on.


How old is this unit? What is the model number? The newer carts have an smart charger that will tell what is wrong with a flashing code on the charging light.

Charger just workrd at my neighbors, doesn't even make a sound whwn i plug it into my cart. why does it not take a charge?


Measure your total battery voltage. That is measured across the main positive cable and the main negative cable. If you have a 48 volt golf cart and an automatic charger, any pack voltage under 42 volts will not turn the charger on. Your only recourse then would be to charge one battery at a time until you get 42 or higher.

Why does my golf cart battery charger turn off after 6 seconds when battery is partially discharged?


I have seen a charger turn off like that when there is one or more bad batteries. Try a load test on each battery to see if one is bad.
You can do this with a voltmeter. Connect the voltmeter to one battery and make the cart start to move and watch the meter.
If the voltage drops a lot then it could be defective.

I bought a 2010 zone electric cart and I do not think the battery charger is working. It will show fully charged and will not last but about 20 minutes please any advise


First of all take your battery to a place that sells batteries and have it checked. Sounds like your battery is only partially charging but the charger will show fully charged as it won't charge any more. Battery could be bad.

My 2000 Yamaha golf cart has 6-4cell 8 volt batteries. I did not leave the cart plugged in during the winter months. When I attempted to charge yesterday, the charger lights sequenced but stayed on...


Yes to both questions. the charger must sense 41.5 volts to activate the relay inside the charger. Being a repair shop, I have a charger that is rigged to charge even DEAD batteries. I do not recommend this for the novice. A charger set on 12 volts will bring the batteries back up to 8.2-8.6 volts. A cheap trickle charger may not put out enough to charge a battery of this size. Remember that they are used to MAINTAIN a charge. Connect the Voltmeter and watch for voltage rise. If it rises to 8.1 or above, it is charging. Trojan battery company recommends charging at least once a month.

Can I leave my 2004 ezgo golf cart charger plugged into the golf cart and wall all the time when golf cart not in use?


never leave charging all the time you want to charge it every 6 hrs of running time to let your batterys cycle down. it would be the same if you charge your cell phone everytime you make a call if you cant keep track of it get a state of charge its a volt metter like a gas gauge for the batterys if you do it my way you will get more run time and your batterys will last around 10 yrs if keep doing it your way them about a couple yrs on them
