Default gauges....

hey guys, im having to make my own wiring harness for a 1996 CC 48v and was wondering the gauges that needed to be used on certain wires. should i use the stock sizes? or go thicker? i know on the battery cables and the motor power cables I am going to use 4 gauge...but what about all of the others?!?!?!

no need on gauges. the only time you upgrade wireing is if you have a large amp draw on the wire. like big motor or length of wire increased.

When I rewired my 1996 Club Car I checked all small wiring guages and went 1-2 sizes larger. On the battery wiring and all related wiring I went with 4 guage.
I worked in the automotive field for over 60 years and didnt like the light guage used by any manufacturer, so to be on the safe side I went larger. I had added 100 watt headlights, LED Tail lights, 100 watt flood lights, radio, stereo DVD player, battery pack volt meter, horn, power outlet on dash, LED dash lights, Turn signals and brake wiring, along with extra 12 volt battery battery with 48 volt solenoid to act as relay attached to key switch. Along with 12 volt amp and volt meters to monitor the battery.
My .02 worth is go heavier on all your wiring and be sure to add fuses to all circuits. Club Car was very lax in putting fuses anywhere at least on mine?
