Default Wiring 12V Headlights on 36V cart

We have a early 80's 36v ez-go cart. What is the best way to wire headlights to the cart?

Thanks

Take the positive wire from the headlight switch to the #1 battery positive post and the negative wire from the lights to the #2 battery negative post. This will give you 12 volts to run the lights. Do not ground to the frame etc only to the battery.

Thanks for the welcome. Hooking the lights to the #1 and 2 battery, will that use the whole system for use or only those two batteries? Wouldnt hooking it up that way cause the total voltage to the lights to be 36v??

thanks

Only those 2 batteries.

Unless you get a DC to DC converter which will use 36volts from the entire pack of batteries.

.........or use 36 volt bulbs.

You said:

No, not as long as you use 2 batteries tied to each other for 12 volts.

A volt meter, especially a digital one, is your friend!
