Default Actual cart voltage???

I got a good deal on a 2000 Club Car DS but I think it has the wrong batteries in it. It's set up as a 36V but I think if you'd actually be a 48V how can I tell without counting holes on the batteries?

Thanks

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Do you think it's supposed to be a 48V system? But it currently has 6V batteries in it to make it 36v?
The cart serial number will give some clues. We can also try to determine based on if it has a series motor or sepex motor. A series drive cart will have a large lever for the FnR switch with several large cables on the back.
A sepex drive will have a small rocker switch for FnR, and should have a Tow/run switch under the seat.

What batteries are in it now? 6v or 8v? How many?

If itís supposed to be a 36v cart, I believe a 2000 would be resistors. There would be large wire coils behind the batteries. If not, itís probably 48V. Did it come with a charger? What does the receptacle plug look like?

Welcome to BGW.

I hope you answer the questions posed by the others quickly so that we know that you are not a troll.

Sorry to be blunt but we have had a number of instances where a person has come on with a first post that poses a question then never comes back. They seem to find some pleasure in wasting the time of those who are just here to help.

If you respond to the questions we will know that you are not one of them.

For the record. The 36v carts had the 2 blade crowfoot receptacle and the 48v carts had the round 3 pin plug. I bought a 48v cart with 36v batteries in it once.
And Luke is right all of the 36v carts produced after 1994 (95 & up) were resistor coil carts and all of the 48v carts were solid state.

Alrighty then! Thanks for everyone's input. I'm not a troll, just really busy. My question has been answered.
I have a 48 volt system because the charging plug has 3 pin type plugs, has a bulky FnR switch with 3 large cable on the back and there are no resistor coils.
It currently has 6 6 volt batteries each has 3 holes.
I guess I need new batteries. I'll try and sell the old ones.
Thanks for your help.

Use them as cores for the 8v batteries.

Did the cart come with a charger? Is it a 48V charger? Post the brand and model number if you can.

You may also run into a problem with the OBC in the cart not working. What to do with that depends what charger you have now.

P.S.
In a pinch you could add 2 more 6v (in the rear bag well) and have 8/6v for 48v

Excellent! In that case I hope you get what you want from this terrific forum.
