Default Re: DIY - 4 x 12v to 6 x 8V Conversion (Part 1)

First post but an avid forum troller and diyer. Beginning a conversion of an 2005 Precedent next week and have a couple of questions. The cart has lights, horn and turn signal; does this mean that there is a reducer already in place? It also has a radio that is currently connected to one of the 12volt batteries, can this be tapped into the wiring harness with a plug & play harness add or is there a better way?

At anyone who's done this conversion how is it holding up over time and which version of the OBC do you have?
Thanks,
Michael

Because your cart has 4x12V batteries any 12V equipment, such as the lights you describe, could work off one of the batteries or from a reducer. The only way to tell is to trace the wires back from one of the lights, horn or flashers to see if it goes straight to a battery or if it goes to a reducer. With any luck you already have a 48V to 12V reducer, in which case you'll be able to re-use it after the conversion.

If you find that everything was working straight from 12V batteries then, as part of the conversion, you should install a good 48V to 12V reducer. A 30A model should run everything including your radio. I suggest you look for a unit from Scotty at Carts Unlimited or Dave from Revolution Golf Cars. Both sell good quality reducers with a fifth "trigger" wire. Scotty or Dave can also provide you with full instructions and support. If you buy elsewhere, like from Ebay, you'll be on your own.

Just found this post and I'm planning on converting my '06 Precedent to six 8 volt batteries and replacing the factory cables with 4 gauge cables at the same time. Could anyone tell me what are the lengths of the cables that I'll need I'll need?

Thanks

Iíd suggest just buying a kit from Scotty or EV I got mine from EV From their eBay store for my Yamaha

Iím not 100% certain if they have the conversion kit cables.

I agree easiest way is to get a kit from scotty, he makes a really great set of cables, worth the money IMO.

My 12volts are toast and Iíve been thinking about doing the same conversion. It might be just me but I have not had the best luck with Trojans. What brand 8 volts did you go with?
