ezgo electric golf cart
 

electric ezgo golf cart



I am new to the site and cannot figure out how to post. I hope I am doing it correctly. I have a 4 year old ezgo cart and the batteries were withering. I purchased new batteries and installed them myself, 6 volt. I backed out of my driveway and down the street and stopped. The lights still work and the reverse beep works. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dennis

Lights, buzzer only take twelve volts to operate. Cart takes 36/48v. Check all your wiring. Common occurrence when new batteries installed. Probably just a bad connection.

I have another problem that is somewhat vexing. I installed the new batteries and it works well. I ran my cart all do 36 holes and on the 35h hole the cart stopped. The solenoid did not click on when I stepped on the peddle. I charged it overnite and this morning it ran. Does anyone know why, my thinking is the solenoid overheated and would not function. I live in SC.

Thanks,
Dennis

I'm not familiar with your cart but, you might find some help in another tech section. Repost here > http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/electric-golf-carts/
Good luck

You might want to start a new thread as you have posted on a 4 year old one. Hit the "New Thread" button. Do this on this page http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/electric-golf-carts/ which deals with Columbia carts. Post your problem briefly in the Title, then go into more detail in the subject window. You will probably get more responses than you might in this thread.

Welcom to BGW.

Welcome Dennis, what part of SC do you live in? I'm in Lancaster.
