Experience the Best Drive of Your Life
Make sure the charger plug has been disconnected and the plug and lead is in a safe place away from your cart. A quick lift of the seat to check your battery cables before your journey is advised. Corrosion can develop very quickly and the most common breakdown is a corroded battery cable. You know
this will happen to you when you are the furthest distance away from home
Make sure that the brake is engaged and the direction selector is in neutral, (Some Yamaha’s don’t have a neutral) BEFORE turning the key switch to ON.
Never put your foot on the brake and accelerator at the same time. This can burn out electrical parts very quickly.
Never hold the cart on a hill by using the accelerator. Always use the brake.
Just like with your automobile, always turn the key off and engage the park brake before exiting your cart.
Don’t use cleaning chemicals that include ammonia in them. This can damage curtains, windshields and seats.
Don’t leave your curtains rolled up if they are still wet. This can lead to mold problems.
Always bend down and unsnap the curtains by prizing the snap away from the body . Damage to the curtain is often seen by just pulling the curtain. A little Vaseline smeared onto the snap will prolong the life of both the snap and the curtain.
The tires on your golf cart are a lot smaller than your car. They don’t hold much volume of air, so the air pressure will need to be checked often. Check on the side of your tire for the correct pressure. Just a few pounds low and your speed and economy will be greatly reduced. More information is on our website.
Try to keep your cart out of the Florida sun. This will save the tires from premature dry rot and the curtains from drying out and cracking.
Try to keep your cart away from damp conditions. Mold is a problem here and can permanently discolor the seats and curtains.
