Default 05/06 Precedent vs. Older CC

I'm trying to sell or trade my 01 gas DS to get an electric cart so I can take to campgrounds. If I can sell mine out right, I have my eyes on a couple of CC Precedents that are for sale. 1 is an 05, 1 is an 06. The 06 says it has 08 batteries in it and the first thing that comes to my mind is why would an 06 model need 08 batteries? Do they go bad that quickly? Did something go wrong? Seems like it would either have the original batteries or newer batteries. Another option I have is to maybe trade for an older, as old as 98, DS model with new batteries.

Anyway, I'm wondering if there is anything about the newer (05/06) models or even the precedent altogether, compared to older DS models that might be worth taking into consideration? Is there any technology or other differences about the newer ones that is an advantage over the older ones?

Also, instead of creating another thread, I'll go ahead and ask as well: Is there any real concern with taking one of these models and throwing on a bolt on lift kit with larger tires and rims? Does it put extra strain on the carts or cause the batteries to discharge faster?

I have an 06 CC with the 08 batteries, I was told that there was a problem with the 06 models, but CC waited for the batteries to go bad and replaced them and the computer. Anyway thats what I was told, not sure if thats the story or not.

I have my 06 lifted and 12"wheels with 22" tires with #3 code, seems to run pretty good so far.

Others may have more precise info. but thought I would chime in anyway.

If the Precedents have 12 volt batterys they seem to only last a couple of years?? The change over to 8 volt batterys runs about $500, plus labor and plus new batterys. CC has discontinued the 12 volt carts as they didnt have enough range or life span of 8 volters?
The Precedents are all new carts that do have some problems other than steering, and batterys, while the DS is proven over many years to do a great job. The Precedents have the SEPEX system which is more expensive to repair than a DS SERIES ( lever F&R under right leg ) cart. My personal pick would be a DS model SERIES every time.
In my area a stock DS will cost more than a stock Precedent mainly because of proven track record and possible battery issues, along with supply and demand?

So, did the 08 battery fix include the 12v to 8v conversion or did they just replace the batteries?

And what is a #3 code? Sorry, I have a gasser now so some of this stuff is new to me.

So, here is the 98 with 07 batteries I can possibly trade for. Looks very clean to me.

Worth the trade just by looks?

I have a 93 CC DS 36 volt series with a 6in spindle lift. I have no problems I do however plan on getting a plum quick motor and upgrading to 48 volts with a controller but, what really matters is what you are using the cart for. I saw a thread the other day about this same thing and most of the guys prefer the DS except like 3 people one of which was a CC tech who stated reasons why the Precident was easier to work on.

Looks nice but at the same time it looks like a 36 volt car. Just thought I'd point that out in case you weren't aware of it.

OK here's the deal Yank. After looking at the pictures, I think I will agree with T-Dog about this being a 36-volt cart, and by the top and supports it is also and older cart but has had a face-lift and looks really nice! T- Dog is just not "some technician", but can tell you and me both, more than we will probably learn about these carts! My advice would be to PM him and ask any thing you are uncertain of; He has helped me many times in the past; just my opionion! Hope this might help in the future! GOOD LUCK!

For mine they just changed out to new batteries ( 4) and made some change to the OBC, Not sure what, still learning about these things.

#3 is a speed setting, they normally are on #2 13-14 MPH, #3 -19.1mph

#4 over 20mph but cost you about $100 at a dealer to reprogram that one.

How do you reprogram any of it? Or tell which one you are currently on?
