Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Take the batteries into any major name auto parts store (NAPA, Parts Plus, Auto Zone, etc) and have them do a load test on them. If you have a 12 volt system the battery must hold 11.5 volts under a load to be able to take a charge. If under that voltage it will need a replacement

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

If your batteries aren`t hooked up correctly, or the connections between them are weak or frayed, this can quickly lead to a loss of power and cause your charger to fail. Make sure you check each battery terminal for corrosion; any buildup will impede the flow of electricity, and could likewise cause problems.
In any case, you will have to plug in the battery and wait until it is 100% full. Then wait until it is almost empty, about 5%. Then, plug it in again and recharge it again. Repeat the procedure several times, until you get a reconditioned battery.
It should have a small reset button (Usually it will be red) located near the main battery supply. Hit the reset button and then put the cover back on the motor. The next step would be to recharge your cart and try turning it on again.
Golf cart chargers are relatively simple to repair, and for most common failures, they can be easily and inexpensively fixed. Other, more significant failures – like a faulty circuit board or burned up transformer – can get a little more complicated and more expensive.
If the charger doesn`t turn on, it may still may work so we will need to check a few things. Ensure batteries have some charge. If the batteries have a very low charge or no charge then the voltage may be too low for the charger to detect them. If the charger can`t detect batteries it will not turn on.
In general, a golf cart battery can sit for about 2-3 weeks without charging. However, if you plan on storing your golf cart for longer than this, it`s best to charge it every 30 days to prevent damage to the battery.
There must be a minimum of 28 or 29 volts in the batteries for the charger to automatically start charging.
Some specialty carts can support 36-, 42- or 72-volt packs, but the average golf cart requires 48 volts of battery power to operate.
If your battery is sulfated, which results in low power and difficulty in recharging to full capacity, it can sometimes be recovered using proper pulse charging techniques. Wehmeyer warns, however, that there are an infinite variety of pulse charging techniques used by a wide variety of equipment sold for this purpose.
I have not used my NiMH batteries in several months and they are not holding their charge. How can I fix this? NiMH batteries – like any rechargeable battery – will self-discharge if left unused. Generally, within 30 to 60 days, batteries will become almost completely drained.
Do rechargeable batteries expire? Yes, even rechargeable batteries expire.
Check the water level in your batteries, using distilled water to refill only. Do not overfill – make sure the water level is 1″ below the top. Check for corrosion or any loose cables on the batteries. Check the condition of your charger`s cables (AC and DC cables).
One of the most common reasons the battery light comes on and the car battery stops charging is because of corrosion. Whether the corrosion is on the battery cables or cable terminals, it is still a problem that needs to be addressed. Another common culprit for the battery not charging is a problem with the alternator.
Bad Charger: IN GENERAL, if the charger kicks on, but doesn`t charge fully or kicks off soon after, this is likely a charger issue. If the charger makes a loud clicking noise, this is likely a battery charger issue.
Yes, golf carts contain fuses just like those found in a car or truck.
The voltage levels also determine a charger life. If your electrical source is not stable and robust, your golf cart charger can go bad. The wiring inside the charger gets damaged and sometimes burnt. In this case, try changing the wires or directly contact an electrician to fix your voltage problems.
The possible reason is that your charger is faulty.

In addition, the electric fuse that supplies the power to the port might have blown. Try to use the same charger in another car to be sure that your fuse has the problem.

Over time, the charger can become less efficient, meaning that it will take longer to charge your battery. If you need to leave your golf cart plugged in for extended periods of time, be sure to unplug it periodically to give the battery a break.
You should store your electric golf in a covered dry area, away from any water exposure. A golf cart storage shed would be the best place, but if you don`t have a small storage building with a door, make sure you place it under a shelter, and away from where the elements can get to it.
Although automatic chargers will remain shut off until the battery needs a charge, disconnect it to prevent the unintended crises. If left plugged, the circuit might trip or fuse blown to turn the charging back on and damage your battery. What is the lifespan of a golf cart battery?
Knowing When to Charge

After your ride, you can plug your golf cart batteries in while parked, and the charger will shut off once the batteries are fully charged. Batteries are discharging as soon as they are unplugged, so keeping them unplugged for extended periods of time can damage the overall lifespan.

Most golf carts require a charger that produces 36 volts.
Club Car`s battery specifications are different for the various model vehicles they produce. Most utilize a 48-volt electric engine but have different amperage and power requirements depending on the use and accessories on the vehicle.
The charger you need for your golf cart batteries entirely depends on your battery type and the voltage of that battery. Some chargers, however, can have their profiles changed and work for different types of batteries.

I continually get code 90 (low/NO flow) from my 8111. I have disassembled, cleaned EVERYTHING, including the inlet port AT the pump (remind everybody to check this as stuff gets past the filter basket and will plug the pump inlet).

There is No air in the system and I get superb pressure at the outlet, yet I still get code 90. I again removed the flow sensor and put my ohm meter across the flow sensor terminals and activated the flapper and measured an open circuit. I used a heavier magnet to see if I could get make the internals of the sensor move to get an ohm reading, but I get nothing but an open circuit, ie: no measured resistance.

Can I simply bypass the defective flow sensor to trick the 8111 to think it has full flow without damaging the ‘brain’ of the system.?

Intex corp is useless at these questions. They have been out of stock on this sensor for months and are telling me “two weeks” for two months and now it’s “end of August” which I do not believe. Meanwhile I am making no chlorine while the 90 code is showing.

I love the 8111, this is the first problem I’ve had with it, and I’m frustrated that I can not get such an important part from them.

Thanks for listening!

ANSWER : Have you been able to find a solution to this problem. I am having the same issue.

I have a yamaha raptor 4 wheeler. I can not get it to start until I unplug the regulator module in the back or the conection plug on left side of machine. the electrical line comes from the regulator through the plug down into left side of engine. not sure what is in there? with machine running if I plug the lines together it will die Unplug and it will fire right up. Any help?
Thanks RW
ANSWER : You most defiantly have a short you need to trace the wires down
and find out witch one is grounded

you may even have a bad alternator that’s grounded or the regulator
the way they make things to day its very hard to test some units

its all going to be trial and error

hope this helps you

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.
