Thanks for giving me the opportunity to work with you! I will do my best to help.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

You say lights would go off? But cart kept running, just no lights? Is this add on light kit? 12 volt lights or what voltage? Are you using an invertor for lights?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It is a add on. 48 volts. When driving at night and I decide to switch lights on the motor stops. Then when I do accelerate the lights will go off.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

sounds like the lights need to be wired into battery positive direct, and not into controller side! Where are lights getting power from?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Why have you charged me already and not even answered my question at all?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

?? not me! I am contractor working from home, I have nothing to do with site or billing!

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Never really got an answer and by clicking "Call Me" it said I agreed to pay more charges. I'm not happy with Just answer at all.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.
My question to you was where do the lights get their voltage? As most lights are add ons.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Curtis, I will not leave any negative rating to you personally. When it said to call it also said's I must agree to extra charges.
My complaint is only about Just Answer.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

OK> Thank. I am still here if you want to continue without any further charges!

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Curtis, When I bought this light kit it came with a harness and all I had to do was plug it in. Everything worked fine until last night. Again cart rides fine untill I turn lights on then cart bogs down.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

So it has been working! I assume the batteries are fully charged?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
new batteries registering 50 on meter. Will try rewiring and checking for short tomorrow. Thanks
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

OK< 50 volts with fully charged batteries seems low. Should be closer to 54 volts! Let me know what you find. Was cart heavily loaded with kids, where performance may have been questionable?
