EZGO Reverse Alarm sounding when key is off
 
Guys - I just finished a slew of upgrades to my EZGO TXT, including head and tail lights, plus a voltage meter.

Everything works - except it seems the reverse alarm (annoying high pitched thing I need to disconnect anyway) goes off when I switch the F&R lever to reverse - with the key OFF and on. This doesn't seem right.

Is this normal - or did I cross something up possibly?

Thanks!

It is normal. Please don't disconnect the reverse alarm as it is an important safety feature. A strip of duct tape over the speaker will quiet it down.

Thanks Gornoman!

I'm delighted that I was able to successfully make all of these upgrades to my cart myself - much of it with the help of folks like yourself in this super helpful forum.

Love the duct tape idea!

Thanks again:thumbup::thumbup:

Saw a lady at Surfside pier get a compound leg break because of a disconnected b/u alarm. As Gornoman said, please don't disconnect it. You'll be glad to hear that noise after a while.

Yes, she will catch you eventually!

I am still trying to figure out how to hide to more batteries.

I predict the brutal Canadian winter will crack all 6 of your existing batteries and you will be forced into purchasing a fresh set of 8v Trojans.

Shoot, I hoping the Wisconsin winter cracks MINE!
