Okay. Found 48 volts coming off the reducer . (thought that was strange) Repaired a wire (loose connection) and hit the power. Loud pop and no power now where I had 48 volts. Whats between the battery and the first fuse . Hope I didnt blow up the reducer. How do I check that?

I dreamed about lights all night last night. I am hooking up turn signal lights and have a wiring or ground problem. At 11pm I called it quits, I am getting back on it tonight.

On you power, make sure you are getting a solid ground with your meter or light.

were you on the primary 48V side of the reduces. It should read 48 on the input and 12 on the output.

I have a question guys. I noticed when I connected my reducer to the cart batteries I got a pretty good spark indicating to me the reducer pulls current. I heard the relay click in the reducer at that time. Will the reducer run down the battery?

Never when you installed your lights what did you hook the power to and what did you hook the negative to and did you install a fuse in the new wiring?

negative runs through voltage reducer. Then a fuse before it runs to the rear lights and a fuse that runs to the front. Have a turn signal kit from buggies unlimited with brake lights. Then runs back to positive. I have a micro switch between turn signal and positive back to battery. Checked all wires. Lights came on after I fixed a bad connection then heard a loud pop from rear of cart. Only have .4 volts coming off reducer now.

If you have 48v in and .4 out I'd say you fried the reducer. I'm still looking for an answer on those reducers. How much current do they pull? I get a heck of a spark and time I disconnect and reconnect the reducer.
