Battery Melt down


New Member

I was so jazzed I got my first Cart. it was used but looked like a jewel to me.
it's a 2002 freedom PDS and looked like it was in storage most of its life.
one of the battery had a broken post where you attach the cable and I thought some tried to fix it by soldering it. So I replaced the battery it took a good full charge and I went about showing off. I smelled burning plastic lifted the seat and the battery next in line to the one I replaced had liquid lead around the bolt(+)

I'm extremely rural and have no idea what to do.

I just looked and the batteries are stamped may 02 ???

Welcome to the forum!

I would replace all of your batteries. make sure connections are clean and tight. Sounds like those batteries are OE and have never been replaced.

Good luck...keep us posted!

Thanks Fabbinman

Your probably right , I just got off the phone with a Trojan Battery Service and he said it sounded like the cable were bad. So I ordered new cables and I'll probably pickup 5 new batteries ....Ouch

So when can I put the wallet away LOL
