Default Low battery light (2007 Precedent club car)

Hey Yaw, new to the site here, and i have read a lot of good info here that has helped me a lot, so Thanks for that.

Now i have just bought new trojen batteries for my 2007 Precedent club car and before new batteries the low battery light would come on a lot. But when i got new batteries the light would only come on when i unplug it from a charge(thats good i think) Then i hooked up my front and tail light to a seperate battery and i also installed new 4 ga battery cables to the new batteries, so now for some reason the low battery light comes on only when running Full speed?? when i let off the pedal the light go off. So what did i mess up, some thing behind the dash when i by passed some wires for the lights?? or do i need to reset the OBC??

Thanks Maddog24

Hey Shadowman, Thanks i will try that and see, i also read a post about installing new battery cables and when i did install my new one i could not run the one cable back threw the OBC because of the end being to big. should i cut off the end of that cable and run it back threw the OBC and put a new end back on. Could that be the reason the light comes on at full speed??

Thanks again

I think that you have just solved your problem. I'm not an expert but I believe that is a CT that the wire goes through on the OBC. If it is a CT like I think it is, then it measures the amps being used. That surely would cause some kind of problem if you wired around it instead of through it.

Out of curiosity, what does CT stand for?
