Man not easy to get information. I don't have anything on the existing switch without taking mine apart and looking to see if it has anything, that said I think I found one that would work, you would have to call and see, it may be too expensive. I know it shouldn't draw much for the purpose but just finding a switch rated for 48 volts DC was difficult. You can try looking at Mouser some more or PM Sergio he may know off hand.

I think the biggest concern is to make sure the switch is water proof.

The OEM requirements should be under 5 amps, the biggest draw would be the solenoid as the controller is just a trigger signal.

If You have other accessories hanging off the key switch, You would need to account for that.

On the IQ carts the potential for accessories load is 15 amps since that is the fuse on the Tow/Run circuit.

Personally I left the regular key switch, but it only directly powers the trigger wire for the 48->12v converter. That way I can turn the key on for the accessories, but the cart will not run.

I have the rest of the circuit normally connected to the key switch on the NO contacts of a charger relay.

I used a hidden reed switch to activate with a magnet, but You can also use a small computer type lock switch to power the relay coil (20ma).

Perhaps You can have the secondary key ON the entire time so the main switch still powers the cart, but have the option to turn it OFF and remove it for security reasons.

Jacksnake, I have installed a wireless key switch for 16 bucks on my 1984 Club Car DS 36v. I wired in (different than original) my keyed switch in case there is a problem with the wireless. Been using it for 6 mos., no problems. It's cool. Comes with 2 key bobs. Let me know if you want more info...John K

I like the wireless thing! I'm going to do some more research on this, as I'm still not sure whether or not the voltage matters.

It matters when it comes to how much amperage you require, as Sergio mentioned the Precedents tend to have more requirements. I saw a few wireless ones and thought that was cool but in my line of work I can't offer that as an option, I guess if I did that on a forum i could be corrected or fussed at LOL so I try to avoid suggestions of that sort even though I'd probably try it myself, within reason. I always fear battery failure, I've seen one explode once, and in a tight compartment like a golf cart, that would potentially cascade to all of them exploding and I couldn't imagine what or how would someone deal with that in an emergency situation. People don't realize how much potential they are sitting on, you need to show some respect to these carts for that very reason.
