Check with TahoeDawgZ71. He can hook you up with a plug and play converter that will pull off the entire pack. Do you have 4-12V or 6-8V?

Check and see if you have either of these type reducers/converters:

Left picture is 16V-12V reducer that runs off two batteries. Right picture is 48V-12V converter that runs off entire pack.
Both plug into wiring harness between 12pin connectors. They should be mounted on plate below front cowl and above front wheels. Tahoe hooked me up with the 48-12V converter.

I'll check it. Right now I'm just really ticked because after telling the dealer what I wanted, they assured me it was running off entire pack..not once but three times when I asked. Thanks for your help, I'll let you know what I got.

Thank you for this post, now I understand how our lights are wired.
We have an 06 precedent that had the light kit on it when we purchased it.
I have been trying to understand how it was drawing power since i could not find a voltage reducer or leads going back to just one battery.

jantrree I looked up under and didn't see anything like the photos, back of lightbar had blue,yellow,browns,blacks and I think green wire (blue was not connected)...connected via a white plastic snap connector to wires leading to the back. Sorry about my attempt to describe it.

Tece50 removed your dash and see if you have a smaller reducer like the one in the picture below. It will connect between the 12pin connectors in the main wiring harness. If you have it, it is a 16V-12V reducer pulling off two batteries.

Took the dash off, this is what is behind it. This is how the dealer is explaining it to me: "It runs off of 16 volts which is regulated by the computer. Therefore The computer regulates throughout the battery pack. This is normal. It does not have to have a 12 volt reducer for it to run correctly"

??? I'm also wanting to find out if I can upgrade the bulbs for brighter headlights. It has the basic light kit (bar). I read the HID gets real hot, what about H3?

Tece I'm not familiar with that wiring setup. You can buy OEM 50w bulbs for the headlight to replace the stock 37w bulbs. They are easy to replace. Check with TahoedawgZ71. He can get them for you. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Club-Car-DS-...6956f4&vxp=mtr
