Default Charging Problems on older EZGO

I have an old EZGO gas golf cart I bought for my daughter a few years ago. Up until this year absolutely no problems. But this year it seems something has gone wrong in the wiring somewhere. There is a problem with the battery getting a charge. I would say this golf cart is late 60's early 70's?? We are not for sure where to start looking for the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Unhappy Re: Charging Problems on older EZGO

There is no plate there. It is located under the drivers seat. I've tried to research how old it is and have had no luck.
I bought a new battery thinking that's what it might have been. But it wasn't. If you charge the battery it will start a couple of times and then you have to recharge the battery again.

thanks!!

A voltage regulator can go bad and cause this problem. that would be my GUESS.

I've looked at some wiring diagrams but have been unable to find one like ours. On her golf cart the voltage regulator and solenoid appear to be the same thing? Could this be correct? If so where could I look to get a replacement for it?
I really appreciate all your help!! We are more used to race cars rather than golf carts. :)

Try these sponsor suppliers first.

If they can't get it find vintagegolfcart.com
PS If you can post a pic of the cart and the engine bay we may be able to ID your cart......

Take a piece of paper and use a pencil to trace the numbers on the ID tag picture. EZ-GO mike may be able to tell ya what you wanna know about the year.
