I wrote this blog just a short while ago and we just had an electrical thunderstorm the other day. As of today we have taken in two golf cart battery chargers that “just don’t work” and diagnosed the failures to be a result of the lightening storms. Hence, I thought I would re post this blog. Neither customer with the "injured" chargers had a surge protector on the power circuit for their battery chargers.

We sell a couple of different ones for around forty bucks. Folks, that’s a whole lot cheaper then a two hundred dollar repair or worse yet, three hundred and fifty dollars for a new golf cart battery charger. Again, I am trying to help you. There's not a month that goes by without us repairing damaged golf cart battery chargers. Therefor its worth repeating. Surge protector, surge protector, surge protector, surge protector,… Buy one of ours or one of theirs, however and from whomever you choose, just be sure to purchase a  correct surge protector and protect the investment of your golf cart battery charger from those power surges. Now here’s the original blog I posted recently. Continue reading

I own a golf cart dealership located in North Florida. We sell and service golf carts, both electric and gas powered. There are far more electric powered golf carts than there are gas.

We have walk-ins every week bringing us  their chargers for us to diagnose.

Sometimes the charger is just fine indicating that there is a problem on the golf cart which we then schedule for pickup. However, the majority of the time the initial plug in test indicates some sort of failure with the battery charger. Continue reading

Time To Perform A Critical Maintenance Service | Checking Fluid Level In The Axle

This is a good time to check the fluid level in the rear axle assembly of your golf cart. Every golf cart has some sort of inspection plug, rubber seal or bolt that can be removed in order to check the fluid level of the oil in the axle gears.

When you inspect for this and you see oily dirt build up around the axle center (commonly referred to as the pumpkin) you might take this as an indication of either a leak somewhere or at one time or another the axle fluid was overfilled. Either way if you have to add a substantial amount then you might want to check the fluid more often then once a year :o) Continue reading
