Default bought a new used cart and dont know where this wire goes

I bought this 02 club car ds carry all at an auction battery was shot and.motor needed rebuilt. But I don't know where this red wire goes that is connected to a "box like" thing that is mounted to the frame under the batteries. Red would assume positive but other wires have been replaced in this cart so I wouldn't bank 100% on that fact. It runs without it connected to anything. I pretty certain it does go on a battery terminal. But not sure which one.

That looks like a 16 to 12 volt reducer. They are used on the neg. side of power for lights etc.

So even though it's red I should put it on the #5 battery's negative post?

That may actually be a fuse box, can you take the cover off of it?

Usually a voltage reducer has a black wire from each end. Before hooking it to anything find what the other end goes to.

That is the fuse block. meaning you should have brake lights. According to my diagram, the red wire should go to the driver's side brake light

Definately a fuse box. These old ds fuse boxes almost ALWAYS had a #10 red wire feeding it.

Default Re: bought a new used cart and dont know where this wire goes

The box is 20 amp blade fuses for lights, I have on my 97 DS, attached pic shows mine connected to + side of my #3 battery (3rd from drivers side). I pulled my fuse box up as I had a large amount of corrosion underneath.

I am in the process of a ScottyB upgrade, removed all batteries and might as well clean up and "loom" all of my added wires while I have the compartment open.

This picture is pre-upgrade removal, battery box area is still empty under going some "scrape and paint".
