Default Wiring a Club Car for lights

Just bought my first electric club car a 2006 Precedent and need to wire a simple set of headlights, I am sure it is on this forum someplace could someone point me in the right directions please???? Wiring doesnt confuse me as much as looking at 4 batteries

welcome to BGW......i take it you have four 12 volt batts in it? if so very simple.........mount your lights and mount your switch than run your hotwires from lights to switch and run your light grounds...( tie them togather somewhere) so your running 1 ground wire back to batteries run your hotwire from switch back to batteries and conncect to pos on battery and connect ground to neg of same battery......theres your 12 volts.............remember an elec. cart you never ever run any ground to anywhere other than a battery........................

The OEM style light kit powers off of the 4th battery in the pack on a 4x12v precedent. That means the battery on the front passenger side. It probably has a blue wire dangling off of the positive post - that's used when wiring the oem light kit. If you are running your own lights, you can run positive and negative leads to that battery. You probably want to use an inline fuse by the way. Just keep in mind, when running your lights, you will always be pulling more load on that battery than any of the others, which will weaken that battery sooner than the rest and, over time, will put more strain on the entire pack.

With all that said, I have my lights and my stereo wired to that battery. But it just doesn't last long enough for us and I know I'm straining that battery. So, I'm going to rewire it to a separate, dedicated battery.

I don't think I said anything that contradicts what you told him shadow. I just pointed out which battery normally gets used for 12v if/when you use the oem style kit and recommended he put a fuse in his wiring. Wasn't trying to imply that he use the harness if he isn't installing lights that account for it.

Sorry if I said anything that confused the OP.

None taken. I probably wouldn't suggest using the harness unless you have the light kit made to fit it.
