Electric Golf Cart is burning up batteries

My EZ Go electric golf cart is burning up batteries at the posts. I have replaced 3 batteries so far in about a year. Now the cart will not run at all.

Welcome to the forums.

Does that cart use eight 6v batteries ?

Were they installed at the same time originally ?

Have you gone on line and printed out the wiring diagram to make 100% sure the wires are in the right place and not just put them back the way there were. (which could be the wrong place)?
Cleaned and tightened all the terminals?
100% sure the charger is tapering off as the batterys get charged?
Is this a new cart to you?
My EZ go uses 8 volt batterys, you sure the right ones are being used?
