Default New to the E-Z-GO Golf Cart

Good morning everyone. I have a question about older E-Z-GO golf carts.

I have never owned one but I had one given to me that the owner said it ran until the batteries would not hold a charge anymore. What should I look for to see if it is worth buying new batteries for it.

Also what other things should I look for before putting money into it.

I dont know the year because the tag is missing but from doing research it looks to be 1979-85 model.

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to BGW

It's a 36v cart, if you have 3 -- 12v batteries, hook them up to test it, and see if it runs, then if it runs and you want to fix it up, then buy new batteries

The cart is designed to run on 6/6v batteries, he is saying test it with 3/12v batteries. The voltage is the same only the amperage is greatly reduced.

I'am not telling you to go buy 12v batteries, take 1 out of the boat, one out of the car, and, and, -- i just figured you could find 3 12v batteries to make sure the cart runs,

it will not run long on 3 - 12v batteries

The cart looks pretty solid. If the rest of the frame, etc is as good as the body appears to be, it's worth a few bucks to rebuild it. Rather than replace the older electrics, update it with newer stuff and you'll have a cart to be proud of. Check with Scottyb for all the parts you'll need.
