jgottard , Info obtained from the link below. 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. Very often it's a battery problem. The easiest way to determine whether you have a charger problem is to test your charger on another cart, or test another cart's charger on your cart. ((continue reading)).

48 volt Club Car, you may have a non-functioning OBC (onboard computer). Since the 1995, 48 volt Club Car's come with an OBC that regulates the batteries' charge. When you plug the charger into your Club Car, the OBC will tell the battery charger when to start and stop charging based on the voltage levels in your batteries. As a result, golf cart battery chargers for 48 volt Club Cars need a working OBC to get them to start charging. So, it is possible that your OBC is malfunctioning and it is not the golf cart charger. This is only for 48 volt Club Car golf carts. If you have not manually charged your batteries and checked your connections, please do those first before assuming you have an OBC issue. The link below may have other good info. for you. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
