Default Powerdrive 3 is not cutting off

I've tried this charger on multiple carts and it never fully cuts off. It DOES decrease amperage output over time but the lowest is 5 amps and it never cuts off even after 12+ hours of charging on known GOOD batteries in more than 3 different carts. Any suggestions? I thought these got feedback from the OBC and didn't have any "smart" components telling it when to cut off or on?

Most likely the relay inside the charger is "sticking" and not releasing the contacts when the OBC removes power from the relay coil.

I agree with Sergio. It's either a bad relay or someone has bypassed the relay internally in the past. May want to check that out.
