Default Question about voltage reducer and lights.

I've looked to be sure I'm not starting a thread that's already been gone over, so I apologize if this is repetitive.

I'm a woman, so be patient, haha! I'm completely new to golf carts and wiring. I have a 2002 DS. I've purchased a 48v to 12v reducer, and the standard recessed light kit (no brake lights or turn signals). I understand up until wiring the light kit wiring harness to the reducer. Do I just use wire crimps and hook these up together?

Find 12v outlet wires from reducer (check with multi meter) and connect light kit's positive to positive and negative to negative. You can crimp with butt connectors or solder the connection. I suggest you cover connection with shrink tubing.

Would it be safe to run a set of LED's up to that as well so it could all work off the same toggle switch?

If they are 12v and as long as the amps of all the lights don't exceed the amp rating of your reducer, you should be fine.
