Golf Cart Battery Charger Not Working ? This happens fairly regularly !

Golf Cart Battery Charger Not Working ? This happens fairly regularly as owners go on holidays, or leave town for a couple of weeks, or discharge their batteries too much.

If your golf cart battery charger is not working, will not start and, there’s no sign of life, then it’s probably because you have not charged your batteries for quite a while.

If its been a while, say a couple of weeks or more, or if your batteries are new or have been run down , then it’s possible that the batteries may not have enough voltage in them for the charger to start working.

If you have an automatic golf cart battery charger then the charger needs a minimal amount of voltage in the batteries to start..

In fact, a charger requires somewhere in the range of 20 to 35 volts in the batteries to allow the chargers to know that they are connected up to batteries and to start charging.

What you should do if your golf cart battery charger is not working …

Get a 6 Volt or 12 Volt Car Battery Charger and manually charge your golf cart batteries for say 30 minutes each or longer. 

By doing this it will give your batteries just enough voltage to allow your golf cart charger to start working and, as a result, eliminate low battery voltage as the cause of it not working.

Check the video below for further advice.


If you’ve manually charged your batteries and the charger is still not working…

The next thing to do (after charging up your batteries) is to check your battery connections. Also, make sure there’s water over the battery plates.

Ensure that every battery cable is correctly wired and then check that all the battery cables are tight against the battery terminals and are not rusted or corroded.

Bad connections will cause any battery charger not to work properly.

After you’ve charged up your batteries and checked every connection and you are still having problems, it’s probably safe to say you’ve got a golf cart battery charger issue and may need to repair it or buy a new one.
