Golf Cart Service & Repair

Golf carts frequently become damaged because of lack of maintenance, overuse, and improper use. It is vital that every piece of the golf cart is kept up to date so your golf cart can have the longest lifespan possible. The tires of your golf cart should always be checked to make sure that it is not flat or that the tires do not have any holes. Inspecting to see if a tire is flat on your golf cart is simple, the tires should be fully inflated, and there should be no sags around the bottom of the tire. Each tire will indicate the air pressure rating on the rim. If there are problems with steering, this can correct the problem with the steering like constant swerving to one side. If your golf cart tires are flat with no holes present then to pump use an electric air pump. Accelerator issues are very common in golf carts. To fix an acceleration issue, inspect your accelerator pad. If you have an EZGO golf cart, these carts include a lever mechanism. To repair, use a matching socket wrench to tighten the bolts that secure the pad lever to the accelerator rod. Inspect the lever mechanism to make sure it is not stuck. Next, apply grease or remove the pad by loosening the attaching screws at the base. Make sure to sand away rust and then paint the pad with automotive grade spray paint and replace the accelerator pad.

If your battery has completely stopped working, remove the battery by disconnecting the cables to the battery terminals. When removing the battery wear gloves to prevent any personal injuries and replace it with a charged one. Immediately after, connect the old battery to a charger so it can charge completely.

Steering problems can be very common within many golf carts. The three most common steering problems are hard steering, steering wheel play, and abnormal noises when turning the wheel. The most common out of all three is steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worm ball sockets or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Normally, you shouldn't be able to turn the steering wheel more than one and a half inches. If it turns more than that, then there is a serious steering problem that should be checked by a professional.

Your golf cart should always run with no abnormalities or problems, if there is any problem with your golf cart, the problem should be handled by a professional. Don't try to self-diagnose problems and try to fix it on your own because it could make the problem worse and ruin your golf cart completely.

History of Golf Carts

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Golf carts, in reality, are not carts, as carts "cannot move under its own power." A golf cart is pragmatically powered by an electric motor or a gas engine. One neat feature of a gas powered golf cart that helps differ it from a regular car is that when one takes their foot off of the gas pedal, the engine turns off. "This feature helps save gas, cuts down on emissions, and helps keep the course quiet, too.” Golf carts also have been primed with electric battery motors that can be charged or even energized by solar panels upon the roofs of the cart (source). A golf cart is an LSV, otherwise known as a Low-Speed Vehicle, ranging from about 20 mph to 25 mph. Compared to other LSV's, there is little difference, as they mostly operate quite similarly. That being said, is it possible to modify golf carts to accelerate faster or pick up higher velocity? It is seemingly possible and simple to do so, however dangerous and unlawful. Insurance companies may deny paying for damages and individuals may risk traffic citation (source).

What are batteries?

Thursday, July 13, 2017

What are batteries? What is their purpose? According to Northwestern University, “A battery can change chemical energy to electricity by putting certain chemicals in contact with each other in a specific way". Batteries utilize the electricity converted to power items such as lights, television remotes, and even cars. There are three main components of a battery, which consist of the anode, known as its negative side, the cathode, known as its positive side, and electrolytes. These segments of the battery keep the flow of electricity through the chemical means of its conversion, with the help of electrons.
