JJ,

I would like to add a cyclops light onto my cart in addition to the phantom lights. However, I would prefer they all be wired together and all come on/off with the light switch that I have. Do you think that would be possible without drawing too much on the batteries? If so, would it need any additional converters or etc? Also, any wiring ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

SP

A lot of people believe that you should run all of your accessories off of the entire battery pack not just one 12v battery. That means buying a 48 to 12v converter. The decision is up to you. Keep in mind that Club Car sells their cars w/o a converter. Two cyclops lights and two headlights equals 140 watts (35 watts ea) which is nothing compared to the 2500w that the 3.3hp motor draws.

Forgot to add that there's a wiring harness available from the phantom body people that lets you hook up both set of light without having to cut and splice into your existing wires. Plug and Play

That sounds perfect!! I'll look for it, but in the meantime do you happen to have a link? I'll check Double Take's website....

Thanks for your help!

JJ,

I haven't been able to locate the wire that you described in your post above. Can you provide me with a link or phone number to purchase the wiring harness you described above?

Thanks in advance,
SP

I've looked for the light instruction sheet for the light kit but I can't find it. My kit didn't come from Doubletake it came from Club Car. I suggest you email David Hicks at Revolution Golf Carts and ask him if he can find a Club Car part number. What you are looking for is a cable to wire the Cyclops headlight in parallel with the added doubletake headlights.

Apparently they have been failing carts with only the single headlight like my club car has.

Overall I think it's a fairly lenient set of restrictions, but regardless I have to come up with something.
a. Operational headlamps; (2 required)

b. Operational tail lamps; (2 required)

c. Side reflectors; (2 front: amber in color and 2 rear: red in color)

d. Operational parking brake; and

e. Rearview mirror(s); capable of a clear unobstructed view of at least 200 feet to the rear)


No mention of brake/stop lights ,

If those lights take the 9004 HB1 bulbs, I put these in the other day, draw 2 amps and are brighter than the halogens,
