How to Connect Golf Cart Batteries

By Jackson Lewis

Electric golf cart batteries are designed to carry a sustained charge to power a golf cart for a full day on the golf course. When your golf cart is not being used, the batteries are continually re-charged. When you own a golf cart, you will frequently need to connect its batteries after they have been removed.


Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Put on your acid-resistant work gloves.
Step 2
Make sure the water reservoir in each of your golf cart's batteries is filled with distilled water. Once it is, secure the lid to each battery so that it is hand-tight.
Step 3
Wipe the connections of the battery terminals with a rag soaked in mineral water. This ensures that battery corrosion doesn't spread in the battery enclosure, potentially causing electric faults.
Step 4
Set the golf cart batteries in the cradle in the golf cart. They should be level when the cart is parked on a level surface.
Step 5
Affix the red wire coming into the battery compartment to the positive connection on your first battery with your wrench.
Step 6
Set up the ground wire to connect to the battery at the positive post on the subsequent battery in the bank. This process will be repeated until you reach the final battery in the bank. On the final battery, connect the black cable coming inside of the battery storage area to the final post.
