battery exploded


New Member
recently my cart just stopped going batteries are fully charged. Cart stopped pulling as I was driving so I pushed it home. All battery connections were good so I so I pushed the accelerator to see to see if the motor was spinning freely incase the motor broke the shaft. About the second or third time I pressed the accelerator the last battery exploded in my face. Luckily I was not injured. I was wondering what could cause this just looking for things to trouble shoot before I bring my cart to a repair shop and get raped or overcharged. Any help would be appreciated.

The gases batteries give off are hydrogen, so any spark can create an exploding battery.
Something would have had to create the spark like changing from forward to reverse, a loose connection, something coming in contact with the battery terminals or even an internal battery short.
Hard to tell what happened but a little more information about your cart would help like model age, voltage, battery age.
