Q: What are some ways to get optimum performance out of my batteries?

A: The best places to find information about battery care and maintenance, charging and troubleshooting are your owner's manual and specific charger instructions. Here are some general best practices:
  1. Charge your golf cart after each use. Our batteries do not have a memory and do not need to be fully discharged before charging.
  2. Allow for 10-14 hours of chargingr. Only remove the charger when it shuts off on its own.
  3. Perform monthly inspections on your batteries including:
  • inspecting wiring for fraying, loose terminations, and corrosion or deterioration of insulation
  • check the electrolyte and water levels (refer to manuals for battery watering instructions)
  • clean batteries with a baking soda and water solution (1/4 cup or 60 ml of baking soda mixed with 1 1/2 gallons or 6 liters of clear water) with a garden-type sprayer with a non-metallic spray wand.

 

 

Q: What do the different blinking lights mean on my E-Z-GO charger?

A: The following blinking LED lights indicate different status of charge:

     Short green flash = less 80% charged
     Long green flash = more than 80% charged
     Solid green light = 100% charged
     Red flash = fault code, charging erorr. For descriptions of fault codes, please refer to your owner's manual.

For more information on E-Z-GO vehicle charging view your owner's manual.

 

Q: What is the best way to clean the windshield on my E-Z-GO vehicle?

A: The best way to clean the windshield is to use a wash cloth and mild soap and water solution. Do not use glass cleaners with ammonia (such as Windex) or multi-surface cleaners. These products will lead to windshield cracking and damage.

 

Q: How often should I check the electrolyte level of my batteries? What is the correct fill level for my batteries?

A: We recommend checking the levels monthly. The correct electrolyte level is 1/2" (13mm) above the plates in each cell. This level leaves approximately 1/4" - 3/8" (6-10mm) of space between the electrolyte level and the vent tube. For more information see the battery maintenance and charging section in your owner's manual.

 

Q: Where can I find the serial number on my E-Z-GO vehicle?

A: There are three common serial number locations on E-Z-GO vehicles: the base of the steering column by the floormat, inside the passenger side glove box, and underneath the front seat bottom on the frame cross member that the body rests on.
