This is a very simple procedure and will require you to combine all light negatives together as well as the positives and terminate them to two batteries for 12 volts.
Just a note:
I've read that some of the industrial carts and certain other carts of that vintage that came equipped with factory accessories utilized the entire pack. i.e. the lights, horn, etc. were 36v from the factory. You can still get some of the 36v accessories.

Just throwing it out there.

I'm going to say they are 12 volt lights. They look to be just a add on. Most truckstops have those same light bars for the big rigs.
I'm not saying they aren't factory but you may want to hook a 12 volt battery to them and see if they burn. I have a friend at the beach has a set of those on his C/C.

You are correct that they are 12 volt.

You are not correct in that they are add on lights. There is a factory wiring harness factory brackets and factory shroud. none of which are available from the dealer.

I took the cart to a ez-go dealer in sorrento FL who is familiar with this type of cart and he answered many questions I had about this type of cart. I also met a service manager from Sanford Fl (Mid florida Golf carts) who answered even more questions about the four seater marathons. I am compiling parts from parts cars at the two dealerships to have full set of lights.
