Default 4 wire key switch guidance

Have a 48v-12v converter, 5 wires (popular blue converter)
The green wire from the converter is supposed to go to the cart key switch to prevent the converter from powering up when the cart is not "on".

My EZGO 48v RXV Freedom has 4 wires at the ignition switch.

Green, White, Red, Yellow.

Cannot get a probe onto the wires as they are well protected at the clip.

Which wire on the key switch should I tie in the converter wire? Only things I can find are for a two wire switch on an older EZGO with "on" "off" key switch.

I'm going to let others chime in on this, but before they get here...DO NOT MESS WITH THE KEY SWITCH.

I'm no expert but I've read that 300 times on this site.

Unclip the connector then probe away with your DMM

Take the Green trigger wire to the cart side of the main solenoid. When KS is on and solenoid is energized, so will be the converter. I have upgraded a dozen or more RXV's to lithium and always use the same DC-DC converter. This is the easy way to do it. And as jon21588 said, DO NOT MESS WITH CART WIRING. easy to destroy controller, just by probing wiring.

Also, you are most likely mounting the converter on the driver side of battery compartment, so green wire to solenoid is easy. Picture is RXV prepped for lithium pack drop in, converter and fuse panel on right (driver) side of cart.
