Question Where to pull 12V from

I have a 2000 CC DS, 48V.

I want to add several 12 volt accessories, radio, taillights, turn signals some led's etc.

I was think about putting in a 4 or 6 circuit fuse panel.

Where is the best 12v source?

I suppose with the key in the on position.

this cart has factory looking headlights with a nice loom, the headlights are ge 886 which is 12.8V,

I looked at the wire diagram but can't figure it out.

The BEST place to get 12v for accessories is via a 48v to 12v voltage reducer/converter that is wired to the entire 48v pack . . .

Steve, I was looking for the 12V source because I saw the lights, so I assumed there it was hiding.

Noooo they just jumped the light to one battery.

So now I see the need for a converter.

You may want to consider one that also has a "trigger" or "control" wire that gets hooked up to the cold side of the keyswitch . . this "trigger" wire turns the reducer on and off with the keyswitch . . .

Ok, but I can get two 10 amp units for $40, may be able to split the load that way?
