Default Club Car head and tail lights

The head and tail lights on the cart do not work. There is 17 VDC on the tail light bulb sockets where there should be no voltage. I think I have an open ground. Is there a wiring diagram for the lighting on a 2000 club car anywhere

BASIC SYSTEM.... all grounds are common and they hook to the battery, not the frame. These do not use chasis grounding...all the grounding is done right at the battery terminals.

Have you checked the bulbs to see if they might be burned out? 17 Volts will do that to them fairly fast. I have seen 2-3 bulbs go at the same time, reason ( unknown ) except fresh charged batterys and before cart is moved?
One bulb yes but more at same time??????????

The cart is a 2000 Club Car. It's still in original golf mode. 48 volt. The mech at the course just replaced the contoller. Before that the thing wouldn't move. Bulbs are fine. If I could find a schematic with the lights on it this would be a breeze but the only wiring diagrams I can find for non regen Club Cars have no lights in the diagram

you may have to bite the bullet and buy the manual for your cart however it will have everything you need in it and will save you time and money the 1st time you use it................

Well today the problem got solved. Put the cart up on the lift and found the broken ground wire at the voltage limiter.
