If a non golf car tech has been working on it, anything can be possible. If lights are hooked up, see if they have the wires going to the frame that would be bad, if it is hooked up that way.
** There are wires going to the frame. I will look to see it the actual battery cables go the frame. I did see small wires going to what looked like a factory terminal (the connection was pop riveted to the frame under the seat... for what it’s worth, the colour of the wire is black.)Lets start with what doe the car do or not do? Your first checks are battery voltage...that’s individual voltage and pack voltage, and that is also checking the pack under a load.
** the cart drives just fine, holds a charge well. It does get driven during the daytime with no problem. I will check the voltage from the batteries and the pack itself... not sure how to check under a load... Have to think about that one. Also check all you cable connections....not only by looking at them, buy by givin them a "tug" to make sure they are connected. lastly, why did they park the car in the first place? find outthat story, as it will help.
** The Cart was parked because of safety… the headlights and horn were not working. 12v bulbs were blown. The 12v horn that was just installed about a month ago has died a pitiful death. (24v going to horn itself & the pos (+) lead [unswitched] coming to the horn was attached to the horn were it mounts to the frame [this would be the horns neg (-) pole]... this was a single terminal horn)
It will be a couple of days before I'm at work again... I will check all the cables and were they go... this could be interesting/scary...
I'll let you know what I find.
Thanks for your help
