Q:

What are some tips for troubleshooting an electric golf cart?

A:

In order to troubleshoot an electric golf cart, a repairer should first check its batteries, listen to the solenoid and inspect the charger. The last option for fixing an electric golf cart is to replace the motor.

Repairers should check the power of each battery with a voltmeter to determine how much power is left. Battery depletion can occur even when the cart is not in use, and unplugging the car can also cause battery voltage levels to fall. The solenoid should click when the key is turned. If it doesn't click, the starter may need replacement. Frayed or corroded charger wires can also cause charger damage in electric golf carts.
