Default Back-up Light

Just out of curiosity could I disconnect my reverse buzzer and use that connection to power a back-up light?

Default Re: Back-up Light

yes and no
yes ... you would need a 36v/48v bulb
NO ... the reverse buzzer is a safety device , not for you but for others to know your backing up
you can add a lights to the system with a 36v/48v to 12v reducer from buzzer to reducer to a light (s) on the rear of the cart

note: always post cart make, model, & volts

You can do both, just add one of these relays:
http://www.mouser.com/Search/Product...55-T9AP1D52-48
Connect the Relay coil (0.187" tabs) in parallel with the Reverse buzzer.

You then just need to run the +12v positive wire to Your backup lights through the Normally Open (0.250" tabs) Relay contacts.

I don't use this cart around a lot of people, just on my property and hunting, I am out after dark sometimes so I do need some kind of light to see where I'm backing into.

So the buzzer is not a 12 volt part but actually 48 volt? I have a 95CC DS 48 volt.

Thanks Sergio, just what I needed. I'm going to have to study this some so I understand it before I attempt it.

crash, I already have a voltage reducer on the cart. I was wanting to figure out how I could run a wire from the F/R switch or the reverse buzzer just to turn a 12 volt light on in reverse.

My only concern of not using a relay is the micro-switch burning out, some bright lights like the ones posted will draw more than 2 amps.

This is a picture I had posted helping someone else with a relay, it may help you visualize it better.
