Default 1998 club car

Well.....its a 48 volt cart! The crazy thing is I bought brand new 6 volt batteries and put them in before I realized this and the cart ran great! The only reason I caught it was the charger was max'ed out and the wires were getting hot due to the charger being 48 volt!

WHoa ~ whoa ~ what!?

If the charger port is round (three prongs) it is a 48v cart...... if the charge port is set up for a 2 blade
Crows foot ( / \ )type plug then it is 36v....
