Dela,
I got the batteries in and the cart is not working. On to the lights, did you have to put in a brake light sensor or is that already in the wiring harness? My cart has four wires our of the rear by the tail light but the light only has 3 wires and only tails are working now. I assume it will blink once I get the blinkers in but not sure about brake lights. Do you know?

In an earlier post you said the brake lights were working? On carts with factory brake lights the lower (big) part of the brake peddle "floats". There should be a couple of springs under the pedal and when you push on it by hand you should hear the microswitch click. These assemblies are not very durable apparently so yours might need to be rebuilt. Mine only work if I push on the left side of the pedal.
If you bought a factory turn signal harness you have to unhook the red wires from the brown wires at the tail light and reconnect the red wire to the white wire on the drivers side and the red wire to the yellow wire on the pass side. Did the kit not come with instructions?

I just put new batteries and I was checking everything out. I thought I had brake lights but they donít work now, the tail light is very bright maybe the brake light it stuff. I thought I had both brake and tail but once I checked it today only tail or stuck brake, I thought my memory was screwing with me. Since you said that, I think I may have remembered right that they were working. I did a lot of washing and scraping to the battery area to get rid of rust and repaint before putting the new batteries in. Maybe I got something wet. I will have to crawl under it to see if I can see that switch your talking about.
The directional signal switch didnít get here yet so I hope there are directions. Thanks for your help.

If your cart has a 3 position key switch -- off, on and on with lights and the extra plugs in the cup holder on the harness as mentioned by Dela then the cart likely has factory lights which usually includes brake lights. Look for two wires zip tied to the the brake pedal arm that connect to the factory harness on the "firewall" behind the left front tire.

How are you getting power to the lights? They are 12v so make sure you are only using 2 of the batteries for the lights. Nothing should be grounded to the frame on a golf cart. You didn't say but I'm assuming you are new to carts?

Yes new to carts, I havenít done anything yet with the lights except test and replug in. They are on the carts circuit wired from factory, there is not 12 volt batter in the cart so I assume the factory has some sort or reducer on the circuit.

There's a lead off of two batteries going to your fuse panel - that's your 12 v's

It sounds like your brake lights are stuck on - if they are that bright, it's the brakes - not the running lights. As Kernal said - there should be a microswitch under your brake pedal. Hard to locate without ripping it apart, but if you can get to a quiet place (go to your Happy Place like Gilmore) press down on pedal - switch is on lower part of pedal just under center - you should hear a click. Report back.

Regarding the 4 wires at rear lights, when you get your blinker switch you are going to need to change a few connections.

Yes I have those, do I need a pressure switch? I didnít see one by the brake stuff under it, so I guess I didnít have brake lights working when I checked.

No, you don't need a pressure switch. It is built into the pedal.
