Q: My charger is overcharging my batteries.

The charge rate is controlled by a control board located inside the charger case. If the charger won't stop charging when the batteries are fully charged, the control board is most likely faulty.

Q: My Charger plug gets hot when I am charging the battery

This is usually caused by corrosion or bad connections in the charge plug handle. Open it up and inspect the connections. If you see a darkening of the terminals or corrosion, replace the contacts and tighten up the screws Make sure you do not loose the magnet when you open the handle. It has to be in there to activate the switch on the golf cart that prevents it from running when it is being charged.

Q: My Batteries are dead and my charger won't turn on

The Power Wise charger must read an appropriate voltage from the battery before it will turn on. If the batteries are dead, the charger doesn't know what is connected to, and won't start

Q: My batteries are completely dead, how do I get the charger to turn on?

You need to charge the batteries individually with an automotive battery charger untio they produce enough voltage for the charger to turn on. You can also use jumper cables to connect you battery pack with another golf cart of the same voltage. The current will pass from the other cart to yours and show the charger enough voltage to turn on.

Q: My batteries are not completley dead, but the charger won't turn on

The first thing I check is the fuse. If it is ok, then test the diodes

If the fuse is good, and the diodes check ok, and the batteries are not dead, the control board is probably faulty.

Q: My charger turns on, but won't show a charge on the meter

If the charger clicks on but the meter does not show a charge, it may be the meter, but more likely, it is the capacitor. The capacitor is what turns down the charge rate as the batteries reach full charge.

Q: My cords are cracked or frayed, can I fix them?

Sure, just take them out of the case and cut the frayed portion off and re-install the proper terminals, replace the cord in the stress reliefs and re-install the cords. in the charger. Replacement cords are available here on the website.
