If you have ever been to the race track you know how loud a vehicle can be when revving their engines and running open headers… Meaning “No exhaust at all” not to mention the mufflers. So being our golf cart is used in a residential neighborhood or public place where others will be present. It is just something we see as a common courtesy to others.

Frequently Asked Questions About Your New Golf Cart Battery Charger

Dear Pete, Hi, finally this week we got the charger. However; once plugged to both the outlet and to the golf cart no lights come up, is this normal? Batteries haven’t been charged in a while. Confused… Terrific… Glad to hear you finally received the charger. Though in order for these chargers or any new style charger to function they need to be able to pick up voltage from the cart. If the batteries are completely dead or near so the charger will not kick on. You will need to charge the batteries up individually with like an automotive style charger, two at a time if you have a 36 volt battery system, or even can do 3 at a time if you have a 48 volt system and a automotive style charger that allows you to toggle charge voltage like 6v, 8v, 12v, or 24v. Once the bank of batteries is at least 35-40v plug in the new charger and it should do its thing. Regardless of how you do it the battery bank needs to be charged up enough for the new golf cart battery charger to know it is actually hooked up to a battery bank comparable the operating voltage of the golf cart charger you purchased. Once this is achieved should be able to use the new charger as intended. To get the most out of your batteries… Always charge your batteries back up after use and before storing. This is also the time to check the water level in traditional lead acid batteries. (After they are completely charged.) Pete
