Default 12 volt ground to pack ground?

Wiring up some 12v accessories and am wondering if they need their own 12v ground or can I run them to pack neg.

depends on where you are getting your 12v from. 36v or 48v cart? yes you run them from the batteries but not just the pack voltage, but between 2 batteries if you are taking off batteries.
