OldMec, just a question here: If you have 2x 55w headlights and minimal draw tail lights which would total about 110w+, how do you only have a 25w draw?

The Everything Carts kit wouldn't include a flasher as the light system doesn't have a signal light function. You would also need a brake light switch to make the brake lights function.
In the LED set up, I would question the 80% reduction in amperage as the big amps come from the headlights (70%) and the other reductions by using LED's can only eliminate about 30% of the amperage.

DOUGMCP--Im Sorry that I didnt indicate back to my post #6 at 7:46 AM that I ( "had" ) 55 Watt lights ( NOT KIT ) but ( had ) put more expensive LED bulbs in to cut down on draw. I stated that I didnt know of any replacement bulb in LED for kit seal beams unless they are using a 7" bulb. Mine came from LEDLIGHT.Com Numbers 54336 to replace H-3 bulbs. These are rated at 0.09 MA at 13.8 Volts DC. I didnt opt for the brighter bulbs as I only use my cart in park but the rating 0.09 MA was also the same for Number 75642 with a higher output. All other bulbs are also LED which at one time caused me some problems of staying on very dimmly caused by solenoid resistor that I found from ALLTRAX was not needed.
My cart is set up as full street ready with headlights, tail lights, turn signals, stop lights, park lights, lite in dash, all included except for wipers and 3 point seat belts.
I think if you do the math that the draw is very low for my cart??
When I was looking at indicated kit I was only looking for flasher not any other parts included.

Bingo, got it. Thanks OldMec. There's becoming more and more LED guys out there and prices are starting to come down a little.
