Golf carts are both practical and fun vehicles with many applications beyond the golf course. Whether you use your cart for work or play, eventually you will need to replace the battery. Luckily the process for doing so is quick and easy, so you can get back on the green or back to work right away.
Most golf cart batteries are located in the front, under the “hood” area of your cart. Depending on your model, your golf cart is likely powered by a set of batteries, usually about six in total. Remove each battery individually by disconnecting the negative cable followed by the positive cable. Discard your used batteries in an approved waste or recycling facility.
An important step many cart owners skip is cleaning and maintaining the cables and clamps. Doing so ensures that your new golf cart batteries will have a solid connection, and that both the cables and the new batteries will last longer. Before you install the new batteries, use a solution of baking soda and water to clean the cables and clamps. This should remove both any acid leakage as well as environmental debris that may have accumulated on the cables. Make sure you dry the clamps completely before proceeding.
Before you install your new batteries, inspect them closely to ensure that they are all the same type, brand and age, and that they are new and ready to be charged. When your clamps and cables are ready, install your new golf cart batteries one at a time, reconnecting the positive cable to the positive terminal followed by the negative cable on the negative terminal.
At this point it’s also a good idea to apply a commercial anti-corrosion product to the clamps and terminals to ensure that your brand new batteries last you as long as possible, and that your golf cart stays in top shape for years to come.
