Golf Cart Modifications

During Modifications

We recently purchased a 1993 Club Car golf cart.  It will be used when we go camping.  When we got it there were no headlights, or tail lights.  Being of the skilled nature I decided I would take care of this far cheaper than purchasing an actual light kit designed for the golf cart.

First I went to Harbor Freight.  I purchased a $12 pair of fog lights.  I also purchased 2 LED marker lights.  Once I got home it took all of about 1 hour to install the lights correctly.

First I mounted the fog lights where I wanted them.  Next I mounted the On/Off switch where I wanted it.  Once I got that done I started the rear LED lights.  I took a pen and traced around the LED light on the fiberglass where I wanted them installed.  Then I took a dremel and cut the area out.  Once that was done I took the rubber boot for the LED lights and inserted it into the fiberglass.

Now for the wiring.  I ran a dedicated ground from one of the batteries in the 36volt system to the front of the cart.  I then ran a dedicated power from one of the batteries to the On/Off switch.  From the switch a wire went to one fog light, and then to the other fog light.  For the rear electric I ran a lead from one of the fog lights power side to the power side of one of the rear LED lights.  I then also ran the ground to one of the LED lights.  I then jumped a wire from one of the LED lights to the other.

When the switch is on the LED lights, and the fog lights come on.  The hardest part was getting the rear LED lights perfectly lined up.

The last modification I made was to put a small toggle switch in so that the cart will not work without the switch being on.  This was installed between the key switch, and the cart.  Even if the key switch is on the cart will not go because the toggle switch must be in the correct place.  This protects the cart from being “Played” with by kids.  (You know who you are…>!!!!!)
