Default How to access keyswitch; '99 EZGO electric.

I recently picked up a rough and tired EZ electric. The keyswitch nut has been removed, and the switch dropped down into the space behind the plastic panel it was mounted on.

Do I have to remove the front cowling to access this space? While I am retrieving the keyswitch, and re-mounting it with a nut, I also will be adding a battery voltage meter. I suppose I could cut the panel, and mount a new one over the hole, with keysw and meter mounted on it. Ideas, anyone?

There should be two plastic rivets securing the keyswitch plate to the dash. You can push out the center pins of the rivets with a finish nail, remove the rivet bodies, and remove the panel. If you find the pins you pushed through you can reuse them to reinstall the panel.

As for a meter, site sponsor Carts Unlimited has a proven digital meter and corresponding keyswitch plate ready to go.

Thanks. I could take a pic and post, but it is as you have described, with the 2 little plastic buttons at the bottom of the plate. I saw they were not screws, and didn't know they could be pushed out. Will do that tomorrow.

As to the meter, that is a sweet setup there, with that meter and plate. I like it. But, I am a retired avionics/communications tech and ham radio op, and I have a 'junkbox' of stuff from projects and scrapped equipment, including an assortment of LED and LCD panel meters. If I don't have one I can use, then C/U is my next stop.

You can also remove the EZ-Go logo on the front of the buggy and reach up from the front. You'll need someone to tighten the nut while you hold the key switch.

Thanks for the help. Got'it done. As you said, there were two little plastic 'rods' that pushed right thru the plastic rivets, allowing the plate to be removed. I vacuumed that enclosed area by stuffing the vac hose thru the dash opening. Retreived the plastic pieces from the vac bag, and set them on thebench.

Found a meter, mounted it on the keyswicth plate and ran a black wire back to the battery, for a meter ground. Cleaned up the filings and drillings on the bench, and swept that, and the little plastic rods right into the trash!

I found an aluminum nail of the correct diameter, so I ended up using that.

Next job is new brakes.
