Charging three 12v batts


New Member
I got a 92 Freedom with no batteries so I installed 3 fairly new car batteries. It runs fine but the 36V charger doesn't like them. It clicks and the amp gauge jumps every few seconds but won't charge. Battery pack voltage is 38.7 volts. Ideas?

Deep cycle batteries and automotive batteries are completely different. An automotive battery is built for quick bursts of power where a deep cycle battery is made for long term power needs. The automotive batteries you installed in your cart may work for awhile but it won't be long.
