Default Golf cart problems

My daughter has a gold cart, 2002 Club Car, and today it was dead. The batteries are less than a year old but it seems dead. I checked the charger and that seems to be the problem. When I plug it in it does nothing. I tried a couple of other outlets to make sure it was not the outlet.
Is there a fuse inside, I see some type of breaker on the exterior but it does not do anything or move. How else can I check it??

Also is there some type of breaker or main fuse that I can check on the cart it self.

Thanks

If I get this fixed I may be able to slip off Sunday afternoon and fish so I AM DESPERATE

I am not sure about the Club Car, but I have an ez-go and more than once a wire has fallen off the silanoid (sp?) making it apear the batt. is dead. I dout it would help but you are welcome to try my ez-go charger.
PM me if you would like to try it.

Inorder for your golf cart charger to work, there needs to be a certain level of charge remaining in the battery bank. If it is not there the charger will not charge. Sometimes adding water is enough to bring the charge down to this level.
My suggestion is to take a digital picture of the wiring for your cart, then you can disconnect the batteries and charge them individually using standard battery charger. Wire two together in series if you want to charge as a 12 volt system, or you can charge them individually using your 6 volt option. Once you are certain each battery is fully charged, rewire them using your digital picture as your guide.

Good Luck,

Thanks Capt Billy for the offer but I borrowed a buddies charger to try and make sure my charger is ok but I still get nothing.

Motivator you may be on to something and I will check fluid levels. There is enough juice to turn the lights on and her "underglow lights"(yep it is a pimped out golf cart with pink underglow lights, spinner hub caps and a cd player) also will come on but the cd player will not.

Is there any kind of breaker switch, I have checked all fuses that I can find.

It is a 2002 Club Car

Typically, your lights (yes, I too have the undercarriage led lights that are programmable) are wired to only two batteries. My scenario of not having enough of a charge over all six batteries could still exist. Check the output of each battery individually, if one is not up to snuff, isolate it and hook up a battery charger to it and see if it will take a charge.
Remember to use distilled water.

PS: Where did you get your spinners?

If the above advice doesn't help call Club Car.....aren't they still in Augusta, GA?

I did some consulting work for them over 15 years ago when they were owned by the Bank of Bahrain....seriously.

Edit --- here is the contact info: http://www.clubcar.com/contact_us.aspx?market=Service

Thanks Motivator, seems like you were correct. Batteries were very low so I added water and hook regular charger to 1 battery after removing wires. After about an hour I removed regular charger and reconnected battery cables(I did clean and apply corrosion blocker to terminals) and when I connected golf cart charger it seemed to start charging.

Thanks for all the help, can not believe I let battery fluid get that low ;? ;? ;?
