Scubabud, you are so smart. We to have a 2006 Precedent. Charged batteries full before putting it away for the winter. But duh, forgot to disconnect the battery terminals. Voltmeter is flashing E lowest point. Tried 2 different chargers and of course they will not charge. Will check the meter reading today. Then if necessary will do the individual battery charge. We have the large battery charger on wheels. I sure hope this works. Will post back. Thanks.

Yes, I definitely want the gauge. Where do I buy that item? Do you have a part number or a link you can send? I'm doing a google search but having a hard time finding that item.

Does this have to be specific to the 06 Precedent?

Please let me know. Thanks.

The one I showed is a Club Car part for your Precedent and can be ordered and installed by them... or... check with our site sponsors since they carry them also!

One quick question a bit off topic. How do I increase the speed of the cart?

When I first bought the cart, I was told it was at standard speed (around 14mph) but it can be increased to 19.6 mph?

Is there a setting on the cart somewhere that would allow me to do this? If so, is it something I can handle.

Please let me know. Thank you.

A Club Car dealer only can order and install Private Speed Code 4 to get to that 19mph range. I have heard them charging anywhere from $50 to $200 for this. Personally I would do what many including myself have done and go with an economical motor upgrade such as the one from Plumquick. It will get you over 20+mph regardless of your speed code.

I noticed the batteries got down to 49.9 so I plugged the charger back around 1:30pm.

It had been charging for about 3 hours and I thought it would have been completed by now so I decided to check again with the volt meter.

The reading this time was 54.6. Any idea on what's going on here?

Please let me know. Thanks.

It's doing exactly what it's supposed to do... never unplug it while charging unless it really does go over the 16 hours. If just looking at voltage it should take your batteries up to near 64 volts when charging... then it will turn off soon after that. I also would take what dtkana has suggested and just get a PlumQuick motor for $225 plus core and shipping.

OK.

What is the part number of the Plumquick device? How does it install into the cart?

Call PlumQuick and tell him BuggiesGoneWild sent ya... they are a site sponsor here... I've had their motor installed for nearly a year and couldn't be happier with it.

http://www.PlumQuick.com

You want the Purple Motor called the Bandit... Let him know you found out about him from here. He is also a member here... PlumQuick

(803) 548-7205 is their number

Here is a link on BGW about my install. Forget about what I said in having Speed Code 4... it's not necessary as long as you have the Code 3 like you have now.
$300 to $400 and get 26 MPH

Thanks. I will look into PlumQuick.

And I plugged the charger back into the cart. I was getting nervous when I saw the number climb to 54 volts but now that I know it's OK I will plug the charger back in.

Just out of curiosity, how is possible to get the batteries up to 64 volts if their max capacity is 48 volts?

Would'nt the overcharging damage the batteries?
