Disconnect the pack negative battery cable.
You should only have a single cable there, no other wires.

Take the dash OFF and disconnect the reducer "T" adapter on the right side of the dash between the bucket harness and the dash harness 12-pin connectors.
You can also skip this part and cut then splice together those two wires that go into the old 16v->12v reducer.

Disconnect the blue wire from the "16v" battery post.


Connect the Blue wire to the 12v output of the reducer.
You can also run the Blue wire to the fuse box fed by the reducer, just make sure the fuse will handle the load for all front lights and accessories.

All Negatives should connect together with the existing Black wire with Yellow bullet connector.
If You have a fuse box with negative buss-bar, connect all negative wires including the Black wire with yellow bullet connector to the negative buss-bar.

Edit: David is typing faster tonight....
This is the route I chose after I looked everything over.
I put the cart in tow and disconnected the neg. I unplugged the 16V>12V reducer, cut the plug off the wires going to it and spliced them together.

I hooked the purple wire to my fuse block that my new 48V>12 reducer feeds.
I ran the trigger wire for my new reducer to the switched side of the key switch.
I put the neg cable back on and switched the run/tow switch to run. I had 12V everywhere that should have 12V.

This saved me from running new circuits which I had planned to do but since everything worked well before, I left well enough alone.

Now all accessories are pulling from the pack instead of just two batteries. Plus everything turns off now when the switch is off.
Before, the lights, signals, brake lights and horn would still work with the switch in the off position.

All grounds are hooked to my new ground buss which is hooked to the B- and my new reducer is taking power from the battery side of Solenoid.

Thanks for the info guys.

Now to finish replacing the radio which is finished except completing the wiring for it.

Default Re: Where is the factory Voltage Reducer on my Cart?

Finished the radio install this morning. I didn't have a non switched 12V power source for the yellow wire that retains the memory, clock settings, etc. So I wired it in with the red power wire that is switched.
I figured that I'd loose presets on the radio but I don't. Strange... I guess the newer radios have something like an Eprom that retains memory. Cause there is no power to that radio with the key switch off. I verified with my meter.
The only thing is the clock on the radio which I don't care about will not stay set and it takes the radio a few seconds to come on when I switch the power on. Then I have to select source, and touch one of my presets. Life is good.
