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

The problem with you wanting to remove the voltage converter, is the light bulbs now need to be 36 volts or you will have to take power from two of the batteries, to keep using the 12 volt bulbs you now have. You need a power wire and a negative wire to work the switch, and each light has to have power and a negative back to the circuit. As the cart is not a grounded system, where the frame would be ground. What can I do to help
