Default I messed up my Lights! Help Please.

New to working on my cart. I took off my dash on my 99 club car ds without disconnecting battery (I know, not smart) and shorted light switch to the frame. Now I have no lights. Can not find use. Cart is stock. Suggestions?

Thanks for reply. I am lucky, most everything works fine, cart runs, brake lights work etc, but no headlights. I assuming there is some fuse somewhere, but I can't find it. Switch also tested good.

I did the same thing, replaced the bulbs and dimmer switch and the headlights worked again. When I pulled out switch I rubbed both terminals against something in the dash and “poof”… Lesson learned was to disconnect batteries cables prior to pulling anything that has “power” associated to it… very lucky I didn’t fry anything else. Not saying this will resolve your issue, but it did mine (97 DS).

fuses are usually uner the seat coming off one of the batteries (usually on the passenger side)
take a look at the batteries and if you see a smaller wire on one of the posts thats usually a wire for accesories and should be fused.
