Thumbs up installing head lights, fuse block, dixie horn on 2000 club cart 48 volt

I am installing head lights & Dixie horn on my nephews Christmas cart. It is a 2000 48 (6x8 ) volt club cart. Your forum is very helpful. Looking as previous post I have decided to add a separate 12 deep cycle battery and fuse block for headlights & Dixie horn. To avoid unnecessary battery drain any suggestions to add a relay to shut off lights when switch when accelerator pedal is not pushed? Or info to locate fuse block! I am not familiar with the electric cart any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. My nephews love the Dukes! and I don't wont to disappoint them...

Seems to me a 48 to12 volt converter would make more since. I have a seat switch to kill power to my lights and overhead fan. I got the switch from a cub cadet mower seat. It is wired to open the ground.

From Scotty B's web site

Keep it simple connections
Green wire is 12v positive (out)
Red wire is 36 or 48v positive (in)
Yellow wire is 36 or 48v positive switched on/off (activation )
Black wire is 36 or 48v negative (in) and also your 12v negative source.
Never use a chassis ground
Read directions before you install!

Thanks, did not think about a seat switch,. I guess you had to make a bracket to mount switch. and as far as the converter goes I could not decide on which direction was better. Reading this forum I discovered that a lot of people had problems with converters failing or causing more problems, With my luck I thought a battery might be better for my nephews . Which converter are you using? Does it cause a continuous draw on batteries and affect run time that much? Just getting started gathering parts. I have the headlights, Fuse block, Dixie Air horn, and just trying to figure out where to mount & how to install.
Christmas is getting close. Thanks for your help! Any thoughts on where and how to install the Dixie air horn compressor and horns.

You can see the seat switch in this photo, also the power reducers are more reliable than a battery IMO.

I don't see a need for a relay to shut off lights when switch when accelerator pedal is not pushed, a simple toggle/pull switch on the dash works just fine. just turn them off when not using them . I myself voted to go with a extra battery for my 12 volt needs. when the radio runs to long and the lights go dim I will always have power to get me back home .

here is a pic where I put my 12 volt battery, slid the center two forward and made a battery rack for it

I sence the relay is to keep them from leaving things on and running battery dead. This is not for himself but for nefews. I know how careless they can be. My seat switch is for my grand kids benefit. Also helps on old farts too.

Yes. It contains the wiring diagram for the cart, and all the changes and addidations I have done to the cart. For example (voltage reducer power is from 48 volt relay on rear frame rail near soloniod) each thing I have done is described this way. I hope the grand kids or shop they take it to for repairs after I pass over, will find it and realize what it is before they trash it.
