Default Turn Signal Module overheating on an RXV

Hello.. first time poster here and a newbie to the gold cart world. So I made the bone head mistake of draining my batteries today driving around but luckily there was enough juice to make it back to the house. But I assume the batteries were almost dead... I went ahead and plugged in the charger (It's a Lester). I noticed as the battery was charging the turn signal module attached to the steering column was very hot to the touch and smoke was trickling out of it. I also saw I left the turn signal on not that it would do anything because the batteries were almost drained. So I unplugged the battery and the module began to cool down and I also noticed the wire bundle that ran down the steering column was also very warm. Is it possible that something shorted? Once the module cooled down I plugged the charging cord back in and it began to overheat again. At this point I assume the batteries won't be getting charged anytime soon until I can figure out the issue, I'm worried about a fire hazard. It's never done this before in the short time I've owned it I'm seriously stumped. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated if I can't isolate it I'll probably call someone to take a look at it to be on the safe side.

Thanks!

Which turn signal unit are you using?

Is there black electrical tape on the steering column where the turn signal unit touches it?

Newbuggyboy.. Thanks for the reply. So this morning after I let the module cool down overnight I took it apart and it appears the wire that leads to the horn had some exposed wiring that touched the metal turn signal which I think led to the arcing. Just hope the damage is limited to the horn and didnít affect any of the electrical. I removed it and hooked the battery back up and it appears to be charging... fingers crossed that itíll work out and charge back itís previous state.

Obviously Iíll look at replacing the turn module unit. I suppose I can do another one for one replacement or does anyone know if the RHOX Deluxe Turn Signal module would work for this application without too much modification?

Thanks again guys.. happy friday

Sure looks like the ezgo factory turn signal head for their 2five model

Part number 615238

Making that other one work correctly is probably gonna be a nightmare
