How to Install a Golf Cart Voltage Reducer

Golf carts have been used for over four decades by golfers of all skill levels. With the approval of GPS and range finding devices in early 2006 for USGA sanctioned play, it started to become more popular to install accessories in your golf cart. In order to prolong the life of the equipment that you accessorize your golf cart with, installation of a voltage reducer is a key component to avoiding early burnout of your equipment.

Step 2
