Default Re: precedent light kit, Do i need a reducer?

Laser, yes, you can hook up the 12v lights to one 12v battery. I was lucky and unlucky to have a 2005 Precedent. I believe mine run off of the passenger side front battery. It shouldn't upset the battery pack too much if you only use them for emergencies.

Lucky - that it was pre-wired for lights and all I had to do was install and plug in.
Unlucky - that I have 12v batteries.

coachpete, I think up to the 2008 model year they came pre-wired, but you might do a Google search, or on this site, to double check that.

Before 2008, they come pre-wired for the rear lights so you don't need to install a bucket harness like you do on ones after 2008. You just plug in the light kit, hook it up to 12V and you are good to go. Yes you can hook up lights to one 12V battery. Eventually, that will run down that battery depending on how often you use lights. If you want to draw from whole pack or if you are considering other upgrades down the road, then you still need a voltage reducer. The converter Tahoe recommended is easy to install.

I am getting my bucket harness today in the mail and I am honestly a little intimidated about that install and at the same time doing the madjax light kit and then the ultimate light kit upgrade. This will be my first major upgrade to my Precedent. I am keeping my fingers crossed for no issues and I have the 4x12volt pack as well.

Coachpete just go slow and it should be fine. the hardest part looks to be fishing the harness to the rear lights after you drilled your holes. If you have questions, you can always call John at MadJax. His number is 866-410-5297. He is very helpful. If in doubt, take pictures along the way. You can email them to him and he can walk you through it. Make sure you put your run/tow in tow and then disconnect the main battery cables and you should be fine. Good luck. Keep us posted on your progress with pictures.

Wow, that was fast, coachpete! So you must have a 2008 cart if you still have the 12v batteries, but no prewiring?

I cut the holes for the tail lights with a hole saw and used, of all things, a bungy cord to fish out the tail light connector. It was right there where they said it would be! If you are threading in a new harness then you will probably want something stiffer like a coathanger or (electricians) fishing wire. Let us know how it goes!
