Battery-Accessory Hook Ups
I have a 2007 club car precedent 48 volt (4 - 12 volt batteries). I have a question about the two pig tail wire leads that come off the batteries; one on the driver side (red) and one on the passenger side (blue). I was told that these are for plug and play lights. My question…do these hook ups pull power from all four batteries? Is a voltage reducer needed if using these hook ups? Thanks for you help!

Re: Battery-Accessory Hook Ups
The blue lead on the passenger side is for use as a 12 volt feed. The user would feed 12V from the negative side of the front battery on the passenger side, and the blue lead. That being said, doing that can draw down that particular battery. I am not speaking for everyone here, but I think lots of folks either use a seperate 12V battery for accessories, or get a converter/reducer for the accessories. (48 volts to 12 volts)
The red lead can be used for whatever the user wants to feed 48 volts to.
Again, use the negative side of the forward passenger battery, and the red lead.
Do not use the car frame for "ground", or have any voltage applied to it.
I installed turn signals & clamped the turn signal switch to the steering column, and that was not the thing to do.
Have fun ! Dave
