You must be right. I guess my years of repairing carts EVERYDAY are irrelevant and you the "internet expert" should be as in stone as the word of god. My apologies his majesty. Perhaps you should go take a royal nap, you must be tired from advising the peasants.

While a led voltmeter is always a great thing to have for monitoring voltage at different situations, low voltage is most likely not your problem.

Unless you have a couple of 1,000 watt light bulbs for brake lights, your brake lights will not drop the battery pack more than the motor when it is running.

You probably have a wire pinched under the brake pedal, a short in the brake light circuit or just plain miswired connections.

To follow up on this... and me not being a sparky, or Precedent guy...

I remember David (Tahoe) saying something about the brake light switch being part of the brake pedal pad on the older Precedents,
That could be a possible shorting problem... Yes?/No?

Just a thought!

Of all the post for this thread, this is the most likely one to be the correct answer.

Personally I would rather have the digital real time readout of the battery stack than an idiot light.

Right now I have to stop, lift the seat, and pull out my meter to see where I'm at on the volts. With the digital readout I can just turn the key and get a reading.

I realize this won't tell me what's drawing the power but it will give me an idea and I can see the voltage while driving in real time real world use.

Just my 2€

We have seen alot of cart techs pass through here over the many years we have been helping people with their cart problems. They range in talent from hacks to factory ace. Your probably not either but your style of telling everyone how over qualified you are and suggesting product you haven't even tried is not the most beneficial advice they can find on the internet. Take a back seat and post when you are really needed.
As for me being an internet expert? I am. Few retired service techs put themselves out on the net where I have. Consequently I have upgraded 450 carts so far this year and carefully walked each customer through the upgrades with instructions, illustrations, and diagrams, and tech notes I have personally written, drawn, and compiled for them.
Then I sit on the phone with them, or answer 30-90 emails a day, and walk the people who can't read or understand the instruction through their installs & repairs.
Additionally I have given helpful advice to thousands of BGW members on a daily routine since 2006. And helped insure the advice that is posted here is the best they can get.
So yeah - I guess you are right. I'm an internet expert.
