Welcome to justanswer.com. My name is XXXXX XXXXX online automotive technician. I am reading your comments. I will be right with you. Thank You, Leon

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

what is the rating in voltage cart requires ?

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

36 volt?

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

Yes you can

Customer:

48 volt charger requirement according to sticker in motor compartment is all I have.

Customer:

Provided wiring is in series correct?

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

that is correct

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

if you go the other way you will have 12 volts and amperage would go up

Customer:

That would result in fried wiring?

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

Is the cart 6 volt

Customer:

Yes.

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

that was my first question OK, then

Customer:

Well maybe not if the wiring calls for series...not sure now..

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

give my the name brand model as well let me look this up for you

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

and year

Customer:

All I have is club car on the electric motor housing. 48 volt charger requirement is on a sticker is next to box where charger terminal wires go to.

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

ok hold while I look into this for you

Customer:

My guess is no on the 6 volt, there is a wire bundle on coming out of where the charger wires go that feed the switches in dash. could it be stepped down to 6 volt?

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

sure it can

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

with the proper resistor e over i times r ohms law

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

Is there a serial number

Leon Davidian, Sr. :

I can get you the owners manual real quick

Customer:

Sorry Leon I looked all over for one, the people got it from parked it last year when battery cells went dead and their son tore into it. Was a good running cart at the time. I'll get the batteries in this weekend and see where I stand after that. I appreciate the help. The previous owner is going to look for one for me. Thanks again.
