Club Car Battery Light Stays On: Solution

When your Club Car battery light stays on, it is an indication that there is a problem. It could be that the battery pack voltage of your battery is low or your battery charge state is low. Whatever the reason may be, I will present the solutions for you.

If the battery pack voltage is very low, it means that the charger cannot be activated by the On-Board Computer. 

  1. Check if the battery pack voltage is up to 36-38 volts using a digital voltmeter.
  2. If it is not, then you need to find the defective battery and separately check each battery voltage.
  3. If you have used the battery for more than four years, you might have to replace it.

If the battery is low, it is less than 20% and needs a reset if the batteries are still good.

  1. Pull out the DC cord from the vehicle and the AC cord from the power source and then plug in the AC power, after waiting for about half a minute until the red light turns off, reset the charger.
  2. When the blue light of the AC power comes on, reconnect the DC cord. 
  3. Switch to the Tow position and disconnect the negative cable of the main battery pack for half an hour, if the problem continues.

Club Car Precedent Battery Light Flashing

There are a few reasons why your Club Car Precedent battery light is flashing. I will explain what it means and provide solutions for you.

1. Battery In Poor Condition

If you have used your batteries for a very long time, there is a possibility that at some point it won’t charge and it will cause the battery light to flash. The solution to this is to immediately replace the old batteries with new ones.

2. Missed Connection to the Battery Pack Positive Side

Your battery light will continue to flash if the positive side of the battery pack has no connection or is not connected properly. This usually happens after the installation of a new battery. To solve this problem, check for a red, loose, or unconnected wire and tighten it or connect the wire to the battery pack on its positive side.

3. Wrong Battery Installation

If you ever replace your batteries, you need to be careful because a mistake in the installation can cause flashing battery lights. A wrong polarity connection could be the reason for this. To solve this problem, check the connections on your battery and correct the wrong connections, making sure that the connections are not done in reverse order and it is very likely that your battery light will stop flashing.

4. Charger Not Supplying a Full Charge

Another reason why your battery light keeps flashing could be that the charger is unable to charge the batteries fully. The flashing indicates that the charging is less than 90 percent. To solve this problem:

  • Try to reset the On-Board Computer by disconnecting the negative cable of the main pack and keeping the FNR in reverse position for a while. Doing this will drain off the power supply of the OBC completely.
  • The next thing to do is to reconnect the negative cable and wait for a couple of hours for it to charge one complete cycle. After this, unplug the charger.
  • The next step is to immediately plug the charger back in.
  • This will stop your battery light from flashing because an equalization charge was caused.

Club Car Battery Light Comes on After Charging

When your battery light comes on after charging, it could be because the battery light might have a loose or corroded battery cable or other wire connecting components of the charging system or the alternator has a problem.

To solve this, replace the corroded battery cable and check the connection of the charging system and tighten it.

You can follow the above mentioned Club Car Battery Charger Light Codes to know more about the issue.

What Does Club Car Charger Blue Light Mean?

Solution for Club Car Battery Light Not Working

The lights on your golf cart could stop working for a couple of different reasons because the lights are different and have different functions.

Below are some of the reasons why is your battery light not working:

  • Broken wires or cables.

  • Improper or loose wiring connections.
  • One or more faulty fuses.

Solution

To solve this problem, you need to check if the fuses have blown out and the switches are functioning properly and replace the blown-out fuses and faulty switches with new, reliable ones.

What Is the Club Car Charger Abort Mode?

The abort mode on your Club Car charger means that the charger cannot complete its charging normally. When this occurs, the output of the charger will shut off and the charger will ignore all buttons and can only be reset when you unplug the charger from the AC outlet, wait a short while, and plug it back in.
