Default I slapped in a lithium and now my headlights/tail lights/ radio isnít working

Iím stumped and I really donít want to take it to a shop So Iíve been trying to trouble shoot my carts problem, but my problem is idk what on earth Iím doingÖ.

So Iíve got a 2006 club car ds with a extreme team carts battery. It had a working radio, headlights/tail lights, and a brake lights kit. There is also a 48>12v reducer. So I was thinking well Iíll just hook it up to the 48 volt side annnnddd boomÖ. All of my lights explodedÖ 😵*💫 letís move pass my ignorance for a second. I tested all of my electrical points and Iíve got twelve volts at my brake light silinoid. And when I hook up my wires to the 48 volts I have 48 volts at my tail and headlightsÖ. But when I hook them up on the 12v side of the battery thereís nothingsÖ and this is where the trouble begins. Any ideas on what I should begin to do? Rewire my lights? Take it to a pro?

I looked at a diagram for wiring in lights and I thought maybe Iíll start there. Wire the lights as if they were the only thing and then wire all the other goodies in but I feel like I may be over looking something silly. Like maybe I donít need a reducer with the lithium on board reducer?

Like I said idk what to do and looking for some help

The first item you need to buy is a Multimeter so you can check voltages.

If you have 48V going into your 48\12 reducer, and you got nothing coming on the out side, I would have to believe your reducer is (for some reason) toast.

I'm no expert but if you hooked up a bunch of 12 volt lights to 48 volts I'd assume that most of those components are now toast. From what I've read the built in reducer in the Team Extreme battery is 12 volts 8 amps...... probably not enough for a stereo and full lights. You need a working 48 to 12 volt reducer and then find out which components are fried. Take my comments with a grain of salt. I've run a successful auto repair facility for 31 years and tried to talk multiple cart owners out of taking my advise.

Check it with your MM and you will KNOW if it's bad.

Idk about everyone else's experience with these reducers but I had a similar mistake. And when my reducer went out it stunk up my whole shop. There was no doubt that it was bad. I was trying to hook up a light bar and I found a pair of 12 volt wires with nothing attached to them in the dash. What I didn't notice was there was also a pair of 48v wires loose in the dash and when I went to hook up the light bar I grabbed 1 of the 12v wires and one of the 48v wires and basically backfed 48 volts to the 12v out put of my reducer. So in my opinion you probably messed up your reducer but if it doesn't put out an awful smell then it might still be alright. Maybe check all the fuses that protect your controller.

If you have an extreme team battery, on the 12 volt side are you getting 12 volts when you hook up to a MM? If not, does your extreme team battery have a power button on it? If it does, turn it on and see if that turns on the 12 volt side. If it does, then hook up one component at a time and see if you can get one thing at a time to work. If there is no voltage out of the 12 volt side of the battery, call the extreme team folks and ask them for help. My 12 volt side doesnít come on until i turn it on and I even think there is auto turn off feature if there is not current pull on it for a while. I am not sure about that last bit, because I just installed mine a while back and still playing with it.
Hope this helpsÖ
