The trolling batteries did not need much of a charge.....green means charged. Yellow blinking light means charging....

solid yellow is basically full charge mode, after a while it enters a taper mode with a blinking yellow light and finally green when fully charged.

You can check it by unplugging the charger, put a digital VOM on the battery, check the voltage, then plug in the charger and see if you get an increase in voltage. If you do, it is working, if you don't then it is probably bad.

have you checked the fuses, made sure connections are tight?

move the solid yellow bank to one of the ones going green and see what it does.

not unheard of for a brand new battery to be bad from the factory.

get a load tester (very best way to check batteries) from wally world or a parts house and test with it, they cost about 40.00 and worth every penny.
