Golf Cart Parts & Accessories: Diagnose Golf Cart Problems

May 13th, 2013 egreenfield

Golf carts are quite convenient on the green, and in some places, they are even a primary mode of transportation. Theme parks, resorts, campgrounds, and even airports all use golf carts on the regular. As more people learn of their convenience, the more popular they become. Chances are, you’ll eventually start using your golf cart more.


Though owning a golf cart is expedient, there is some maintenance and servicing to which the owner must tend, meticulously. The most important thing is to understand how you can diagnose your cart accurately. A few things can happen with a golf cart after time, and it’s no big deal, but when you know how to address and repair, you can save yourself a decent amount of money on repairs!


When you notice something off, grab the owner’s manual. If you can’t find it, see if you can search for one online, or maybe call the dealer. Inside the manual, you’ll find the ideal maintenance and servicing for the cart, and there will even be a section for troubleshooting failures.


Don’t procrastinate! Seriously, you’ll only hurt yourself if you do. If you adhere to the proper maintenance and servicing according to the owner’s manual, you’ll keep your golf cart for a long time. However, delaying or skipping routine maintenance can be the difference between life and death for your go cart.


Check the tires frequently, as in, before every single ride. Improper inflation is extremely dangerous to both the cart and its passengers.


Clean the battery terminals regularly. Usually if a golf cart won’t start, the battery is to blame. Check the area for dirt and try jumping the battery with a portable battery jumper. If you still have a hard time starting your golf cart, or if it happens repeatedly, check the golf cart for a bad battery.
